This point was made by Techradar, who just published a long article on the future of the Mac platform in PC gaming,20 years agoappleThe gaming power of the Mac platform has been abandoned, but they may subvert PC gaming with a new model.
At the WWDC conference in June this year, Jeremy Sandmel, senior director of Apple’s GPU software, put forward a slogan, “All theMacBookThey are all game MacBooks.” At that time, they also announced two important developments, that is, “Resident Evil 8” and “No Man’s Sky” two PC game masterpieces will be launched on the Mac platform.
Of course, these two are not the only developers who have transferred their masterpieces to the Mac platform. When the M1 version of the MacBook was released before, Blizzard also announced that the Warcraft expansion “Shadow Country” supports the Mac platform. This is the first company to introduce 3A for the M1. game company.
There are currently more than 1,000 games on the Mac platform, and this is just the beginning of Mac games.
Of course, it is not unreasonable for Apple to be so confident. Since the self-developed processor, the GPU performance and software/game development of the Mac platform have been continuously improved. The M1 Ultra claims that the GPU performance exceeds the RTX 3090. Of course, the actual measurement is not as good as it is. Half of the performance, but such performance is still scary, and manufacturers should understand what the future results of such performance will be.
