Help! UE4 running slow on macbook pro

Hi there, i recently moved from using Unity 5 to Unreal Engine because it looks incredible!
I have noticed it’s running awfully slow, very choppy and it has crashed multiple times. I have even gone through the trouble to upgrade my RAM to 8GB.
It is a MacBook Pro, there is absolutely nothing running in the background, so i don’t understand the issue.
Everything else i run that is super fast including other new engines.
Any feedback would be great!! Thank you, I’m excited to get working!


Can you post your full computer specs here? Additionally, what settings are you currently using? You can find this in the Settings>Engine Scalability Settings submenu.

Version 10.10.2
Macbook Pro 17"
Processor 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 8GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB

Currently updating Unreal Engine will post specs in a few minutes
Thanks again!

Hi ColemanW,

Unfortunately your card only supports up to OpenGL2.1, the editor requires a minimum of OpenGL3.0 to efficiently run on a Mac. I would recommend upgrading your video card to a card model that supports OpenGL3.0.
