Steam On Mac Performance... Improved!
Posted on Tuesday, August 17 @ 22:26:11 PST by Daniel BischoffWhen Steam launched on the Mac, I was a little disappointed. So disappointed in fact, that I went ahead and reinstalled Windows XP, something I was hoping to not have to do. I had already uninstalled that side of my Mac and returned it to a united machine in anticipation.
My point is, I'm happy again. My frame rate is at the decent pace it used to be and I'm able to play Team Fortress 2 without it turning into a total slide show. Still, I should have known that Valve would get it all worked out in their own goddam time.
A new report from the developer/digital publisher is giving me pause on my second bootable operating system. Apparently...
Depending on the game, video settings and the hardware, we have measured frame rate improvements from 15% to 120% on these systems.I just have to say that I admire Valve's conviction to bringing a quality experience to a platform that really needed. I may keep my Windows XP boot to play my games, but I'm really happy that someone out there is doing something for gamers to show they really care. I wonder if there's anybody out there listening and if they might want to take their company in a different direction....
