    Hey guys, Today I installed bootcamp onto my 13'' 2011 Macbook pro. I tried out playing this game called MINECRAFT and on my OSX partition I hit around 40-60 FPS and today I played the game on my windows 7 64 bit partition and I was on 10-20 fps. I have tried looking for a solution everywhere, Doesn't seem that anyone has this problem. So please you guys, HELP ME OUT !
    Thanks in advance :]

    I was under the impression that the HD3000 drivers for Windows are quite bad, only going by what I've heard on the forum here, but that could be the reason.

    I was looking around the forums today and I came by something about Overclocking the machine. I searched up for overclocking the HD 3000 but nothing came up. So is it possible to overclock it ?

    I don't know if that will actually be beneficial (and may hurt more than it helps) if it's a driver issue, not the clocking. Forgive me, I'm more of a console gamer, but Minecraft isn't available on OS X?

    check the actual game's graphics settings as well.. you may have the limit FPS on or too many chunks trying to render right off the bat.

    The Mac driver is better, in my opinion.

    OP, why not use Lion/Snow Leopard for Minecraft? It does run it pretty well...

    I know that it runs great on Mac OSX but I am looking to start up my Youtube channel but there is no screen recording software for mac that lets me record 40+ Fps. If you guys do know a good screen recorder for mac I would really appreciate it, Thanks :)

    Is your FPS bad with the software running, or just minecraft itself?
