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?

Macs heat up so fast you need ice to cool them down.

How about ... running all these fancy tests on PC hardware, but setup as a Hackintosh, instead of Windows?

How does gaming and other things perform on a Hackintosh compared to a real Mac? @Linus Tech Tips.

And I'd say, do this in a comparison between standarized PC hardware, and actually beefed-up gaming hardware.

so you mention the streaming thing... but if anyone wants to play, lets say an fps, that's not a very good solution. the latency would just be too much if youre streaming from a pc in your house to another monitor. ive tried it with steams in home streaming and its just not the same. just get a long ass hdmi or dp cable and put the tower in like the next room over, and if you REALLY need to you can drill a hole. I had to do it when i ran the coaxial cable from the wall to my modem in the next room, and i almost did it when i put my pc in the other room but decided against it because i dont really care anymore if a cable runs along the wall.
