I'm trying to play Steam games on my iMac using Bootcamp. I created a new Windows 7 partition on my internal SSD, installed the games then attempted to play.
When the game starts, everything is fine, but give it ten or fifteen minutes, and the game will start getting extremely choppy and become unplayable, the iMac gets pretty hot as well. HOWEVER, when I quickly view Windows task manager, I see that plenty of RAM is available, and the CPU processor isn't really under stress. My graphics card is capable too, so why is the game so choppy?
I am using Bootcamp assistant drivers, and the only modifications made to Windows 7 include resizing pagefiles and disabling hibernation.
My iMac's specs are: 3.4GHz Intel Core i7 16GB RAM, 1333MHz DDR3 AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2048 MB 250GB SSD & 2TB HDD OS 10.7.5 Windows 7 Home Premium
Games I want to play: Hitman: Absolution Crysis 2
I have tried: Reseting SMC (slight improvement, but not significant) Reseting PRAM (no improvement)
