EA games on Mac! Sorry, Macbook and non Intel C2D owners...

Recommended Posts

Seems a bit lame after they got up at the Keynote and made a big song and dance about their support for the mac platform.

 

Oh well, I guess more Mac games, however limited is a good thing.

No, the Intel integrated graphics is as basic as you can get and aren't nearly powerful enough to run the latest games.

very True, for some gaming experience you need a seperate graphics card - the faster the more VRAM the better

macbooks will not make a "playstation" macbook pro might. the iMAC might as well

the mac pro can for sure.

Just make sure you have a seperate graphics card with enough horsepower for any games you would like to play, and shared video mem is a NO GO there.

Whaaaat? The latest games needing hardware that is powerful enough to run them? Never!

 

sorry, but the gma950 is a heap of crap. It's only in the macbook and Mac Mini because they're cheap. Being a relatively recent switcher I know how awful the intel integrated graphics chips are. I'm amazed that they can run OS X's fancy effects to be honest.
