    Hey guys,

    I think of buying a MBP 17'' standard version only thing I really wanna know how much FPS will this MBP run on CoD4 (promod) No config, Med Texture, High res(1920x1200) I thought.
    I really would like to know. If anyone has 17'' and cod4 please try and let me know.

    (How to see FPS? typ in console ''cg_drawfps 1'' )

    Greetz, Derpness

    I guarantee it will run much better on Windows. The OSX version isn't that great of a port, in my opinion.

    Well I can't tell you for COD 4, but for MW2 (which has higher specs), I can get 60fps on all high. And I'm runnin a 2011 15".

    If you want to know how CoD4 runs on a 17'' MBP, perhaps purchase one, install CoD4, and monitor your frames.

    Surely you aren't purchasing this computer just to play CoD4, so it's not like you would be making a huge purchase just for this test. If you are, purchase a Windows desktop or notebook and don't buy a 17'' MacBook Pro if you are attempting to play one game.

    I think he's trying to gage the overall performance of the GPU based on this game.

    I think he should gage the overall performance of the GPU based on benchmarks, not forum user FPS postings of an old game. The benchmarks on the card can easily be acquired.

    Just saying.

    Forums are meant for helping others, if you dont want to help then dont be a wise ass and dont make stupid posts. Benchmarks are not an accurate measure of performance, what matters more is the gaming performance, which s=is best measured by FPS. Agreed CoD4 is an old game but maybe it is the most demanding game he plays so it would make sense for him to find out how well does the game play on the laptop he is about to buy. You are not being paid to help others out here, you are here cause you want to be and if you dont have anything helpful to say then dont make a post.
    OP CoD 4 is an old game and it will run perfectly on the MBP 17 with all the settings maxxed, infact the MBP should easily run even the latest CoD at all the settings maxxed out. All CoDs are not very demanding games and the MBP should do fine with them at max settings until they make a significant leap in terms of graphics wont happen atleasdt until the next gen of consoles come out.

    So, when you say "help" do you mean "spoon feed?" Just curious.

    Would you like me to post a link for him instead of him looking up benchmarks for his video card? How does that sound?

    Quit trying to mod the forums. You're not being paid to be the hero.

    Nobody asked you to look up any benchmarks, this thread asks those people who have plated CoD 4 in their laptops and OP is asking their FPS, what part do you not understand, yes OP shouldve tried a google search before posting a new thread but how does that prompt u to make stupid wise ass comments.

    Wow, what an epic waste of thread space you guys are.

    I played COD 4 on my MBP 13” 2009 (9400), and I remember putting mid settings without shadow or special lighting effects. With these settings, the game was extremely smooth.

    With a 2011 17” you will EASILY be able to play the game at the highest settings.

    I think looking up benchmarks will be a lot better than "you should be able to run it maxed out because it's old" when he is looking for frame rates at specific settings.

    Are you satisfied with my level of help now?

    It shows specific settings for CoD: Black Ops, should give you more than satisfaction for CoD: Modern Warfare - and it even has specific MacBook Pro 17inch benchmarks.

    If you click the "view more games" link, you will notice that this card dominates CoD: Modern Warfare. 96 FPS on medium settings. You should probably give or take a few of those depending on other hardware used during these tests.

    How's that?

    I have the same machine as you except I have the 15" which has a diff res and smaller screen and it plays maxed out easily even hooked to my external display which is 1080p, so you'll have no issues. (NOTE: these comments are from the Win 7 version I have not played it on Mac OS X version cause its too pricey to have two versions)

    Does that mean 60fps is not enough?
