This is a (slightly) augmented version of my post in the Apple Games section, which doesn't receive as many visits as the OS X forum. Has anyone, especially those who experienced poor graphics performance (effects such as with Stacks, Exposé etc.) in Leopard found a noticeable improvement in Snow Leopard? For me, and my reasonably powerful NVidia 8600M GT, I always found the seemingly simple graphical effects in Leopard to perform abysmally. Frame rates were pathetic for effects such as the Genie minimising effect in the Dock. I've found that everything has greatly improved in Snow Leopard, how it should've been. My older post about the Dock animations is here. I just tried Battlefield 2142 for the first time in an age, now that I've got Snow Leopard installed. Many Mac users are familiar with the awfully sub-standard performance of this Cider port (which was their first shot at the process, I believe). It appears, however, that the performance of the game has somewhat improved under Snow Leopard. I can now run the game with decent performance at the Medium preset and 1024 x 768 resolution, whereas before on Leopard my MacBook Pro was struggling desperately with everything set to Low. Judging from this game improvement and the Dock performance improvement, Apple appears to have updated the NVidia graphics drivers or something to similar effect. Has anyone else noticed this sort of thing in Snow Leopard?
