Here are the specs for my MBP: http://www.everymac....bolt-specs.html
And I'm obviously running Guild Wars 2 on windows 7 under bootcamp. I have installed the most recent graphic card drivers from the official AMD website.
According to this performance chart released by Anet themselves, my graphics card is in the 'high-end' section, 4th best (tied with 2 others) of the AMD series at 59 FPS.
Concidering I have a Quadcore processor (2.2 GHz) and 4 GB Ram, I don't think anything is bottlenecking it there.
What I noticed is that on default, it sets almost all graphical settings to Medium or Off which averages me at around 15-20 FPS. Even with everything turned to the absolute minimum, I'm still reaching a max of 20 FPS.
The strange part is that when I turn everything to the absolute max (ultra), I'm still hovering around 15-20 FPS, as in only a very slight performance decrease compared to everything on the minimum. But regardless of all this, my computer should be able to run everything on max with atleast 30 FPS, yet I'm barely reaching the 20 FPS mark on lowest.
What's going on?!
P.S.: Note that my macbook is actually a pretty "beast" gaming laptop. I understand MBP's aren't made for gaming, but that doesn't mean they're not exceptionally good at it, which they are, or atleast mine is. I've been able to play every game I've ever installed on the absolute max settings and I've never had any issues with my graphics. I always had stable FPS in every game I played. So please don't reply with hollow statements such as "MBP's aren't made for gaming". The issue is obviously related to Guild Wars itself, but I wonder if people have figured out a workaround.
