    I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get a 17" MBP soon, the only thing I'm curious about is how gaming performance fares with all those extra pixels.

    I've seen a few benchmarks, but they are almost exclusively run at 1024x768. I don't mind sacrificing texture quality etc. in order to run a game at native res.

    So if any of you don't mind sharing some frame rates etc. with Windows games at 1920x1200 I would really appreciate it.

    Cheers

    I played Modern Warfare 2 with 1680 x 1050 resolution and it was fairly fluent with medium to high settings. I don't know about the frame rate though, but it was more than 25fps.

    I have a MBP 17" (specs in sig) and I play some Steam games (Left 4 Dead, TF2, Left 4 Dead 2) and I find that they play very well with medium to high settings. Very smooth. In TF2 I can even play with AA on and it's still smooth! I also play Fallout 3 with no AA and medium to high settings and it is wonderful!

    Hope this helps,

    I'd argue that Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 are not very performance-intensive games (of course, that doesn't make them any less fun). I'd recommend running the Far Cry 2 graphics test instead, you can test it in different qualities and see what FPS you get at any time.

    What's the point in playing at a high native res if your textures are gonna be low quality ?

    I'd argue whats the point at playing with higher settings if you can't at native res :rolleyes:

    I like everything to be sharp when I'm gaming, especially with the 133DPI screen in the 17".
