The Apple M1 Max chip's teraflops performance is slightly faster than a PS5.

So would you place the M1 Max graphics performance at the RTX 3060 level?

If so, that is extraordinary. Especially considering the much lower power requirements.

I have to wonder: will game publishers start paying attention to macOS now?

(And this is still M1!)

Apple: We removed the Touch Bar and added the ports you want!

Also Apple: Oh and we gave the new MacBook Pro a notch.

Do we know which "powerful discrete GPU" Apple is comparing against yet?

Apple M1 Max = Exists.
32 cores.
4x performance of Apple M1.

Ok. Fine. I'll take some buyer's remorse and a glass of wine, please.

So, M1 Pro = M1X?

OK, I don't have buyer's remorse... yet!

I WILL have buyer's remorse if the bezels disappear on the new MacBook Pro.

Welp. 🙁

Yep, there's a new @AMD@twitter.com @Radeon@twitter.com graphics card.
I slapped the RX 6600 into a @System76@twitter.com Thelio and I'll be asking the important question: WILL IT LINUX (and on what distros?)

Stay tuned.

I've been benchmarking like crazy and have to throw out a random thank you: to @Turn10Studios@twitter.com for making Forza Horizon 4 one of the most superbly optimized PC games.

I constantly notice that there's almost NO gap between average FPS and minimum FPS across all resolutions.

I installed Windows 11 on my test bench last night to benchmark some new stuff. Gotta say, I am thoroughly enjoying the overall visual makeover across the board.

It's still Windows, and I prefer Linux or macOS, but it's a VERY welcome improvement over Windows 10 so far.

What a powerful line that will probably always feel applicable in our modern lives.

Making awesome progress on the new site today! Stay tuned, this is gonna be quite a ride!
