40-80 fps is excellent. Also i am reasonably sure that the refresh rate is 60 Hz on the MBP meaning it is incapable of displaying more than 60 fps regardless of how many fps your GPU is capable of rendering.

how can 40-80 fps be excellent :/


I had 250 fps constant with core 2 duo 3.0, 2gh ddr2 ram and 8800gt graphic :/ (windows)

and i had 125 fps on: amd atlon 3200+, 1gb of ram, ati radeon x800rx (windows)

So i expected at least 125 fps with this computer (snow leopard)

25 fps is a playable framerate. Anything under will stutter.

And for the most part 250 fps would be pointless anyway, as mentioned earlier, your screen refresh rate will be lower than this, and having a higher fps than refresh rate will result in screen tearing (unless you enable vsync, which then caps the fps at your screen anyway).

Running a game well is not just how many frames you can draw a second, its a balance between fps, in game details and textures, and the highest screen res you can pull off.

Also, its a laptop GPU, which is not really designed for gaming anyway.

40-80 fps is perfectly playable.

Refresh rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The screen in the MBP, mine at least, has a refresh rate of 60Hz. It CANNOT display more than 60 fps. Your average fps, provided the numbers you gave are correct, is the same. The only reason I could see for needing more, or 125 as mentioned is to increase your jump distance in game (COD4). I have read differing opinions about the optimal fps for the longest and/or highest jump distance and have never tinkered with it myself. But the point is that no matter how much you tinker with or tweak your settings your MBP will never display more than 60 fps regardless of how many frames your GPU can push out. FRAPS, assuming you use bootcamp/windows, could show 100+ fps but in actuality you are only seeing 60. My G53JW shows anywhere from 40-100 fps playing World of Tanks but as my LCD is a 60 Hz panel I never see more than 60. Sorry. BTW, fps is capped in the newer COD titles to prevent the super jumping that 125+ frame rates allow. It is almost universally considered "glitching" by most gamers and is frowned upon although unprovable.
