I installed BootCamp yesterday on my MacPro. For the single reason to be able to play Games that are not available on the Mac, if i want to. I wanted to verify that it works, and that 3D performance was up to it with the current set of drivers, before i start getting rid of the Windows Shuttle PC i have sitting around for that purpose.

Installation was a breeze, very easy and straightforward. As the documentation states: “The only potential point of trouble is choosing the correct partition during the windows installation”, which is correct, but if you follow the instructions, or just choose Drive C: as the logical choice, you will be fine.

Now, holding down the Option key during boot, i can pick my target OS, and Windows boot fine. 3D Mark 2005 reports 11.000, which is like 40% faster than the fastest windows system i have available otherwise, so I guess Unreal Tournament will run just fine 🙂

A shame there is no 3D acceleration yet in Parallels, on the other hand, i do not play games that often.

Still, as an option, this is very nice. There is no reason left in the world not to buy a Mac in terms of pure hardware superiority.
