    Are you using HS on your 2008 Air? That model does not support Metal (or Metal 2).

    ah no, Guille, sadly my macbook air 2008 had mb failure in 2016 :(

    i tested it on other macs (recent ones with metal support v2 and v3)

    What games are you playing? They have to be updated to support Metal 2.

    i just played 2 Blizzard games for 30min (i don t use macs for games )

    - heroes of the storms : if i select "Metal" on the options menu, i have less FPS
    - Diablo 3

    i was looking for some gamers! :)

    Thanks for sharing this! I knew I saw something up when I was playing Heroes yesterday.
