Youtuber Andrew Tsai had fun launching a few big games on a Mac Studio with the M1 Ultra chip, and we have to admit that it’s not a panacea: between 50 and 70 FPS in ultra on Metro Exodus with a 1080p resolution through Rosetta. It’s fluid, but it’s not amazing for a machine over €4,500 running a game from 2019! On GTA 5 (playable through CrossOver), performance also leaves something to be desired. The game struggles to exceed 60 FPS despite some graphic cleats pushed down.

One of the most beautiful games available on Mac today remains Shadow of the Tomb Raidera title all the same released in 2018.
