    I too got an email from Derek. I replied that I have no issue testing a solution. I have not heard back from him.

    Just to add I'm having similar issues if that can possibly add weight to this issue on a mbpr.  Just in the last 48hrs the graphics slowed down.  Batman Arkham City on bootcamp fps down to 8-11fps @ 1600x900 & High.  With the SMC reset now back to 20-56fps


    Thanks to all in the thread for the advise.  Would be better if Apple fixed it and saved me losing my evening trying to resolve it !

    Today Apple has released an update EFI firmware but in the release notes above does not seem to solve this problem!

  • w00fa Level 1 Level 1

    There's a pre-release rMBP SMC Update in testing, right now. Please allow some time.


    I'll keep you updated.

  • Spodboyjono Level 1 Level 1

    That would be great - many thanks

    Same thing happening to me but the smc reset doesn't seem to help, serious lag in games. Apple please fix this!

    Hey, man? Any news?

    Where did u find this update??

  • Costes08 Level 1 Level 1

    I'm having the same issue since today, started World of Warcraft and FPS dropped arround 80% compared to yesterday... please fix this!

    Due to friend advice, I gave a chance and Tested 10.8.3 Beta. Builds 12D61 and 12D65 (For Developers) and problem is gone.


    I was really ****** off cause no reply from Apple, so I guess they were working to fix this at next Release.


    Playing Diablo III and StarCraft 2 at Mac OS X and other games at Windows with no issues now.


    Good Luck u all.

    this helped for you...

    not for me

    I hope Apple will be able to push out a fix for this issue soon. When I first tried playing CS:GO in Win7 Boot Camp the performance was atrocious and I was quite alarmed also at the CPU temps reported by HWMonitor (pushing 100C every once in a while).


    Turns out after resetting SMC the CPU stays much cooler on average (well under 90C though some spikes up to 100 seem to remain), and the GPU never got to 80C either. And this was without the fans at full blast yet, they only went up to ~5000RPM. It's clear that turning the entire notebook casing into a heatsink surface was a very good design idea.


    I really do wonder why the computer ends up in a state where it will produce more heat while performing at ~20%.  Without a software update from Apple it appears that I will have to carefully monitor the machine's behavior to know when to do a shutdown - SMC reset procedure, which is hardly ideal -- however I'm very glad to find out that the hardware is clearly capable of sinking the heat generated by the chips. We just gotta get the software right...

    Hi w00fa


    Any update on the issue, if still seems to be occurring. 



  • w00fa Level 1 Level 1



    Unfortunately, I can't give out any details. You're going to have to wait for the official release.

    I find the rMBP to be a formidable gaming machine. Performance in OS X with CS:GO is fantastic, couldn't ask for more. It is perhaps slightly smoother under windows, but I fear for the life of the poor CPU.


    smcFanControl is more or less necessary at this stage. The stock fan curve is far too noise-conservative and I have encountered hard-freezes on Windows due to CPU hitting Tj max (105deg Celcius) which causes the CPU to trip a hardware shutoff threshold. But temperatures this high can never be reached so long as fans are forced to max. Essentially it is possible for thermal load to increase faster than the fans can respond through the sensor feedback loop. IMHO, the fans should basically be set to max once temperature exceeds 90 Celsius. 


    I have not depended on this machine for gaming for several consecutive hours yet. I hope that a fix for the SMC being corrupted (resulting in poor performance) will be provided soon.

    Hi Fabio,


    I am interested if they actually did fix the graphics and lag with 10.8.3.


    How much memory does your system have  and how much of it is free? Also how much memory is the WindowServer process taking?


    A workaround I am using is to use a non HiDPI resolution, it seems to resolve all lag and performance issues, and decrease the memory footprint at the cost of a less sharper screen.
