    I was wondering: how much of a difference will we see in terms of FPS with the newly seeded 10.6.5? I was focusing specifically on 3D games, like Team Fortress 2.

    I think those who might know are not permitted to say.

    OP meant Developer seeds of Mac OS X 10.6.5, the so-called Beta versions Apple seeds to developers.

    More to read here ...

    It is common knowledge, that Mac OS X is inferior to Windows, in fact every other OS on earth is not as good as Windows, but that is all I can say.

    I'm not that good on elaborating any of my statements with proper arguments anyway.

    Windows 7 - isn't that a dumbed down version of Tiger? :D Microsoft: only five years behind the power curve.

    I think Loptimist meant that the FPS numbers under 10.6.5 are good, but not as good as the numbers that are obtained when running the same apps under Windows. I'm no gamer, but that seems to be a common occurrence.

    I don't think he was attempting to bash OS X 10.6.5, and I assume he is not permitted to say more due to an NDA.

    Edit: I see he's spoken for himself.

    10.6.5 10H529 provides more stable frame rates, at least for me.

    people need to stop thinking whenever someone compares windows and osx, it is about osx being inferior to windows.

    Okay, as you didn't mention 3D performance in games, I was jumping your gun, even though this thread is about performance in 3D games.

    I'm sorry. :eek:
