I bisected this regression on the iMac itself, and the "bad" patch is
70889d68664c1211caf5a845014953dfee66c8f4. However, the patch is working
as it is supposed to.

The game has a setting "GPU Synchro" that defaults to "Immediate". With
this setting the game uses event queries to achieve the equivalent of
glFinish(). Before 70889d68 an unsignalled event query would return S_OK
and *data was set to FALSE. Now it returns S_FALSE and *data is left
unset. This change in behavior makes the game's wait work as intended
and the performance goes down.

Setting the synchronization to 1 frame (so the game waits for a query
from one frame ago) restores the original performance.
