Bootcamp gives significantly better performance than macOS

After experimenting multiple times, I found that StarCraft II on macOS (Metal API) has tons of bugs (black terrain, invalid particle effects, rendering bugs after window restoration, frequent resource stalls, etc., which aren’t present on Windows) and significantly lower performance compared to running in Bootcamp. The performance issue is mainly due to random stalls (not network related).

I have 16’’ MacBook Pro (i9-9880H, 16GB DDR4, 5500M 4GB), and the issue above is present on both macOS 10.15 and 11

I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this problem? Is development aware of this?

I do, I experience the same. I will install SC2 on a Bootcamp partition.
