  Published: 1 week ago


Despite its "pro" marketing, the iMac Pro still has a Vega 56 inside - Can it possibly hope to drive that beautiful 5K display? And can we do better?

Found the background music a bit annoying and distracting.

Or you can just optimize the games to run on 4k? I mean, in most games medium texture resolution looks the same as ultra res, even on a 4k display sooo no point in keeping that setting too high.

Apple: We are much more sophisticated, we don't make iMacs for gaming, it is for "office work" that much more sophisticated and rich businessmen use......
Others: We make PCs that are more powerful than your iMacs for gaming, but hey, it can also be used for office work.
If you want class, get rid of the RGB lighting which is otherwise cool, and get a classy case.
Apple Others
Professional work Yes Yes
Gaming Shit Yes
And we have a winner ladies and gentlemen!

My brother said that his 15” MacBook is better than my Alienware 17R gaming laptop XD. I was dying when he told me this.

I was a PC person for over 30+ years and even was building my own computer in the end (I was even a certified PC Technician). I am now a computer graphics and web developer who's is also into video editing. I used to be somewhat of a hardcorde gamer way back when Atari 400/800, Amiga Computers and the Commodore 64 were the computers that were having people dropping their mouths with awe. Graphics have come along way and gameplay as well. Apple computers me suits my needs well now, for I once I'm done with the initial purchase I am pretty well content for the next 3 to 4 years (or maybe more). I'm no longer a hardcore game that needs all the high end specs and when I do game if the game's high resolution is taxing my cpu/gpu I simply dial down the resolution a little that is if I end up having a long gaming session. I hardly notice the lower graphic resolution's quality, plus I'm an old timer anyways were gameplay trumps pretty graphics. I think this review is geared more for the hardcore gamers and I really don't anyone who would buy a iMac Pro for just to game on it in the first place unless they're rich.
