Yeah I noticed this too. I have a Hackintosh that I use mainaly for video editing and as a server. Running a Q6600 @ 3.5GHz, 8GB memory, and an 8800GTS 512MB video card and on Portal @ 1680X1050 I actually have to turn down some settings to make it playable. Portal is not all tha a demanding a game so the 8800GTS should be able to handle it with ease with all settings maxed out on 1680X1050.

Problem is... I can't find anything like FRAPS on OSX to see what is actually happening with my framerates. So few Mac gamers I guess nobody has ever bothered developing something like fraps.

Oh well. This was just an experiment for me. I don't plan on gaming on that machine
