    Hey guys. I've recently gotten 2 dual monitors and hooked them up to my Macbook Pro but now things have fps issues especially games. The Fps will just have a seizure and rapidly move inside the range of 10-60 making it impossible to play. As far as I know my macbook should have enough power to handle 2 monitors.

    Before the dual monitors Windows 7 ran perfectly on my macbook pro and all my games had steady 60fps. However when I trade to play those same games on Mac my fps would be in the 30s. BUT, now that I have dual monitors my fps and performance on windows 7 has gone to utter crap but those same games that didn't work as well on mac now have perfectly normal fps.... It literally makes no sense.

    Is there anyone to fix this?

    Depends on your hardware. Typically in Windows with a dual monitor configuration, gaming only occurs on the primary monitor. In any case, it requires a lot more power to drive twice the resolution (assuming you are gaming on both monitors as a single screen).
