Just wanted to say thank-you to CCP for releasing the client on Mac. Im lucky enough to be running it on a brand new imac so i have a nice system. Played eve previously mostly on pc and enjoying my eve experience far more on my Mac.

For those unsure, EvE looks outstanding on Mac!

Thank-you CCP!

Yeah mine runs totally fine too! It's cool to have a "hardcore" game on the mac.

Works fine on mine too.
I went out and got the 27" iMac with the i7 quad and all the bells and whistles- game screams on it :)

Nah, great games are just hard to find CHEAP and with good performance for macs ;-)

Performance wise its mostly apples fault, while the hardware is "good", gaming optimisation in drivers are poor, apple could deliver better drivers or increase pressure on ati and nvidia to release better drivers.

Still I have to agree that cider and eve do a good job on mac most of the time, though stability problems and losing several ships this, together with better multi-monitor support in windows are still a very good reason to boot a windows on your mac to play eve.

Apple has been working closer with Valve and other companies to improve their drivers, the last three OS Updates have taken steps to address this.

I am aware of this. Still a lot to do on this topic.
Anyway it is a lot better than it was 18 months ago, and we are not losing half our fps when playing on osx.
