    Just curious if any WoW fans have made the jump and if performance took a large drop on older nvidia based macs? WoW performance on my late 08 MBP (9600m) is already pretty bad (low settings, lower than native res, windowed mode) so I'd hate to upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks only to have my framerate tank.

    I'm on a late 2012 27" iMac. I have the GTX 680MX. Im seeing about a 30-40% drop in frame rate. That is found after an upgrade and then a clean install.

    Your mileage may vary.

    I'd say performance will get better than ML once developers and Apple had adjusted teething problems. Luckily WoW isn't much of a demanding game so you shouldn't get frustrations. I haven't played WoW since 2007 though so take this comment with a grain.

    I haven't played WoW for many years but I suppose the difference should be miniscule.
