    Just picked up a refurb high end late 2013 15" and am seeing an odd issue, particularly with WoW. The game runs much better on the Iris Pro than the 750. For the life of me I can't figure this out. Anyone else seen this? Should I try a pram and smc reset?

    I've also had a few system freezes forcing a hard reboot. Maybe I got a bad unit???

    Use search to find me thread explain how to run WoW in low-res mode (native 1440x900 vs 2880x1800, which event a decent desktop won't run fine without going down with details).

    Then use nVidia web driver, details also can be found on this forum.

    I play WoW full-screen in 1440x900, with maxed out details (besides anisotropic filtering x8 and view distance to high) and I'm getting 30+ fps. Played few arenas and bgs yesterday, was fun ;D

    Thanks. Running in low res does help. What do you mean nvidia web driver? I'm not running in bootcamp. You saying you can install custom nvidia mac os drivers?

    Google up NVIDIA CUDA for OS X and download the CUDA drivers.
