      Aren't they going to release M4 Macs soon?
      Or are you under the impression that the M4 is only for iPads?

      My 2012 Macbook Pro runs better on Sonoma than it did on Catalina.
      It's not even supported and Apple improved the performance.

      Impressive to see people still misinterpreting this over a decade later
      They made iPhones throttle when the battery voltage dropped due to age because the alternative was them randomly shutting off, if you just swapped in a new battery they went right back to normal

    Do we have GTA V benchmark results yet?

      Wouldn't that be a useless metric since it doesn't run natively on Macs?
      A game that has native Windows and Silicon Mac versions should be much better, no?

        GTA V is a 2013 game. More importantly it bypasses all the hardware acceleration that geekbench takes into account.

          But that's useless if that same 13yo game isn't made for that architecture, because of the performance hit from running it through CrossOver or whatever you use.
          You can't use it to gauge how good the hardware is compared to other hardware that runs it natively.
          I guess it's useful if you want to compare different Silicon SoCs, or if you actually want to play the game on M4 and want to see how your experience is going to be.

            You're missing the point. You know how Apple blatantly cheats in benchmarks by using hardware acceleration? They can't do that in GTA V because after that ~20℅ performance hit we get to see RAW CPU performance.

            Basically Apple wants as little people to find out about GTA V performance because it might lead to normalgays beginning to question if using an iPhone CPU on a laptop is a good idea or not.

            You get a raw cpu/GPU performance that's been reduced 3 times (directx to metal, x86 to arm, and windows to mac), so unless you're sure that it's going to be an exact percentage that you can factor in (which you're not), the result is going to be unreliable and won't be usable for comparing M4 with Windows-based hardware.

            Just use a game that has both a Windows x86 and a Mac Silicon native version and you can get that useful raw performance. It's that simple.
            Why does it have to be GTA V specifically?

            NO. HARDWARE. ACCELERATION. IS. BEING. TESTED. IN. GTA. V.

            ONLY. THE. CPU.

            How is hardware acceleration cheating as long it leads to the same results? It's not like HW acceleration for encoding that gives a worse result.

            >It's not like HW acceleration for encoding that gives a worse result.
            You're moronic, I'll just leave it at that.

            And this test is impossible to do accurately because when you test on Windows you're only running the pure game, while on Mac you're running it through 3 translation layers, which make it run slower than it would run if it were a native version.

            Again, why does it have to be GTA V specifically?

    Performance in absolute terms is not very good. That's why they always present it in terms of power efficiency. Which it is good at. But, plug your fricking laptop in. Problem solved.

    its a cpu, so you will be constrained by memory bandwidth in ai.
    BUT its a cpu so you can have branching in your code
    id like to lay hands on one of these just to mess around and make myself an actually informed idea

    its expensive doe. and thats beyond question
