Mac Performance

  • I spent a couple minutes searching this forum with no luck, so I'll ask it here.

    I have an early 2011 Macbook Pro. 8 GB RAM, 2.2 GHz Core i7, 1 GB DDR5 6750M Graphics, 7200RPM HDD, running OS X 10.7.2. The game installs and runs properly, the problem is my framerate. Whether my graphics are completely maxed out, or all the way down (with "Low FX" toggled on when turned down), I get a fairly consistent 35 fps. It's certainly playable, and I know OS X isn't an operating system that has traditionally performed very well for games, but should I be getting a better framerate than this? I installed the game on my Windows 7 partition using Boot Camp, and I get 50+ the entire time with the graphics maxed out. I know it isn't difficult to switch over to Windows, but I just like the idea of not having to restart my computer every time I want to play Diablo 3.

    Is this normal, or is it something that is being optimized for Mac and will get better with the launch of the full game? I may be picky, but I figured I would ask, just in case there is something I can do to help out with my framerate. Also, I made sure to toggle to option to always use my dedicated graphics before I launched the game, if that made any difference. Thanks for listening!
  • This is something I'm gathering feedback on and sending up to our team. Thanks for the report on this, and your system specifications.
