    Anyone tried playing league of legends on a macbook pro mid 2010?

    It barely ran fps 30-40 on stock hardware. Getting a new SSD and upgrading ram to 8GB tomorrow.

    Was curious if anyone has played a on spec'd out model

    Thanks

    RAM and HDD will make no difference to your FPS that will be down to chipset and graphics card, thats just the way the tech works as long as you have enough RAM it'll be fine and while it may load levels quicker etc on the SSD it'll have no affect on the graphics.

    Yes. I know. The dedicated nvidia GPU should cover that. I just hope loading times etc will improve massively as right now it takes too long to load.

    Is there a way of getting the latest nvidia driver to install or does El Capitan have this already?

    Thanks

    As far as I know only on windows in boot camp, but that's certainly not my area of expertise I game on consoles.

    Just an update, so with a new Samsung 850 EVO SSD and upgrade to 8GB RAM.
    The game now runs with 40~60FPS on the very lowest setting (no shadows, etc)

    Which is a massive improvement from when it ran stock hardware 30~40FPS maximum.

    With a laptop cooler I hope it will run at a steady 50FPS :)

    Thank you all
