Crossover 13 Released

Codeweavers announces the release of Crossover 13, a new version of their emulation software that allows Windows games to be played on OS X and Linux computers without even having Windows installed. The new version promises a significant performance improvement:

The centerpiece of release 13 is a dramatic improvement in graphics performance, particularly for games. According to CodeWeavers’ CEO Jeremy White, “Even though it’s been shown in many studies that frame rate isn’t the only measure of game play satisfaction, the truth is that many gamers do measure their success by their frame rate. With Performance Enhanced Graphics, now they can play their games any time the moment’s right.”

The reaction from CodeWeavers beta testers has been euphoric. Though user’s mileage may vary depending on their individual… hardware, frame rate increases of between 40-60% (or more) have been noted on titles such as Torchlight 2. One tester noticed a 2x-3x improvement in StarCraft 2. According to another, "With CrossOver 13, I can re-live all of the greatest moments of my misspent gaming youth, with excellent, near-native performance. I can once again be a nano-augmented resurrected Viking warrior working for the NSA, while mowing down innocent civilians in a four-wheeled death machine! Thanks, CodeWeavers!”
