Multithreaded OpenGL Benchmarks with WoW
8:36 AM | Anthony Wang | 11 comments
Barefeats has posted benchmarks of World of WarCraft taking advantage of the new OpenGL multithread update from Blizzard. In their initial results, gamers enabling multithreading are likely to see a significant increase in their FPS.
Interestingly, not all new Mac models showed a speed bump, it looks like this might be of more benefit to Mac Pro owners than those using notebook computers:
Big gains are to be had with multi-threaded OpenGL enabled in lower resolutions (full screen) or in windowed mode.Head over to Bare Feats for the benchmarks, and also watch for more as they explore this option with other hardware configurations.
Though we saw gains on the Mac Pro with the Radeon X1900 XT, we saw no gains on our MacBook Pro 17" Core Duo with the X1600 Mobility.
