Anyone playing Sleeping Dogs and noticing bad performance? According to Steam's FPS thingy the game only maintains 60 FPS indoors. Outside it hovers around 30, and can dip as low as 20 with lots of people running around. Mostly high settings, except antialiasing is off and shadows are medium. Controls still remain responsive, though. This is with a 970 at 1080p, so I'd hate to see what a real Mac is like with this game.

I will probably re-add my overclock and see if that helps; maybe it's just a very CPU-bound game, though the requirements only ask for a 2 ghz CPU. (I have a first gen 2.8 i5.)

In my experience nvidia performance is terrible on OS X. Many games run significantly better with my 4870 than 680 even with the web drivers. Something Apple and nvidia doesn't mix. I would be interested to see ati performance.

I've not double checked my exact settings or needed to look at fps but the game is running fine on my old Mac Pro with 7950 at 1440p and high texture quality and with FXAA on.

It defaulted to medium but going up to high seems just fine - changing to extreme did cause a significant drop so I went back down to high.

In my experience everything runs better with my GTX680 than anything did with my Radeon 5870, Windows or OS X, unless there was a specific NVIDIA bug in the dev's code. I wouldn't go back to the 5870 save for my life depending on it or I got enough of a tax break for me to afford buying another NVIDIA card.
