The latest dispatches from Azeroth

WoW on Windows and OSX on the same Mac

| 2 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

This is interesting: the new Intel Macs run WoW faster under Windows than they do in OS X.

They main theories why are:

  1. DirectX is just plain faster than OpenGL
  2. The Intel build of WoW hasn't been optimised just yet.

Still, interesting...

Was it with the same settings? Apparently some of the games get confused by the dual-core processor and hardware settings, either reporting "under minimum spec" or defaulting to rock-bottom settings. They can be manually adjusted upwards though and run well. People have had Guild Wars and EQ2 running on Apple hardware, so I think the days of my long-in-the-tooth PC are drawing to a close.
