    Hi!

    I play Minecraft on my late 2012 iMac 27", top of the line, with everything upgraded. The game runs fine, but sometimes the fps get bad, especially when there's a lot of people.

    When no one's there I get around 100 fps.
    When there's a lot, to dumps down to around 30 fps.

    With these specs, i expected at least a million fps. :p
    Is it just the game, or am I doing something wrong?

    All setting are on highest available btw. :)

    Thanks in advance,
    //ifraaank

    Okay, thanks for the answers.

    No, actually not, because I want it to lock to the 60 fps, which is the monitor's refresh rate. If I turn it off, the performance is equally low. (30-40 fps.) :(

    This may be related to how OS X handles v sync. I've noticed in many games if it drops below 60 it'll clamp the frame rates at 30.

    There was a blue post from Blizzard about this in regard to World of Warcraft.

    Hopefully the gaming capabilities of OS X gets more love!
