I'm using i7 retina for my LoL Client. Can't play game on max screen resolution even though I already turned off most settings, FPS is always around 30. I had to down to like 75% resolution to be able to play Co-Op AI games because it will lag on team fights. I don't want to annoy others in normal games.

However, after BootCamp a Windows 7 into my Mac. I can play max resolution and enjoy normal games easily, FPS is around 50-60. That points out that it's not my pc's problem but it's the client's problem. Hope you guys can fix it.

if you're running max resolution with retina it probably won't run that well. If I recall, Bootcamp on the retina will not run retina resolution (2880x1800). You can try and set the resolution to more space (1920x1080) rather than "best for display" and see if it makes a difference?

It's possible that the retina scaling algorithm on Mac is slowing your performance. Try running in Full screen mode at a smaller resolution and see if that helps resolves your issue. If it does maybe we can investigate ways to disable retina scaling while League is running.

Also go to your energy saver options and make sure installing Maverick did not reset them.

Vsync off in game setting and as brent said make sure you go to your system preferences and select Higher Performance int he energy saver option this works 98.9% of the time. it doesn't hurt to reduce the resolution slightly either but with your specs i can understand why youd want to push it to the max!

best of luck man
