    I just installed Boot Camp on my MBP. Does anybody have an idea how to get Games (WoW, Fallout4, Battlefront, etc) to run smoothly under Win10 Boot Camp? Specs are in signature if that helps, but nothing I can think of makes these games not have fps issues and such. Tried updating via AMD Radeon app, AMDs website is fairly useless due to claiming I do not have any supported hardware, etc.

    My 2012 iMac would probably run circles around this blasted MBP. Never had issues with Boot Camp on that, in fact never booted into OS X for a year because of how smoothly Win7 ran at that time.

    Suggestions, links, etc would be helpful in trying to make this an actual pleasant experience unless AMD is just that bad vs. NVidia...?

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Win10 issue, if Windows 7 ran fine.

    Well, I got every game to run pretty well, except for WoW. I keep thinking it may have something to do with WoW not using DirectX 12 (currently), but have no ideas if Windows 10 can even run DirectX 11 or below. WoW, even on Low Setting for everything (and disabled) cannot actually get above 15fps. I simply cannot figure this one out. Their forums are a tad useless.

    Have you tried running WoW under OS X?

    Regardless, you're not going to get great game performance out of your machine due to the GPU being, at best, on the low end of the mid-range and also because of AMD's lack of driver updates. They did put out a package fairly recently that supports Boot Camp installations under Windows 10, but it's based on an older driver core and not the newer "Crimson" software that is more stable and better performing.
