    Doesn't sound too hot. I'm assuming that's the CPU. Is there a temp readout for the GPU?

    Also, is this in OS X or Windows?

    76 C is not particularly hot. You shouldn't see the CPU stuttering until IIRC 105 C. 64 C at idle is on the warm side compared to earlier models.

    How hot is the GPU getting?

    I guess it could be any number of problems. Hardware fault. Graphics driver bug. OS X problem.

    Could it be a bug in this fancy GPU switching which Apple has designed?

    Can you replicate the freeze in anything else, eg any other game?

    When the game freezes, does the whole computer freeze, or do other apps continue normally?

    It might be caused by software too. Are you playing the game on Boot Camp? Is the game original(not cracked)? Is it a CXZ-Wine-Cider game?

    Very important questions here. Cracked games run like crap, and Windows on a Mac isn't perfectly stable as it is. Update any drivers you can if you are running in bootcamp. Also, if using Windows, how large is your windows partition and which version are you using?
