The Mac Pro
Mac Pro is a very capable gaming device. I assumed and believed what everyone said, its 5 year old architecture would be slow and that gaming would be impossible.
Overall I am able to run most games on max graphics with playable FPS.
All Games Tested with 2560x1080
GTA5 Runs at around 40-70 FPS on Ultra this is very impressive!
BF1 can Run at medium to high with 30-50 FPS, a new title game!
BF4 is very optimized, runs with 90 FPS older titles are optimized!
Everything else ran really well.
Should I do a part 2? Or
a Video with d500 or d700 video?
I was unable to get Doom working. As game drivers mature they will take better advantage of these workstation graphics cards D300. The D300 solo can run most games well. When the game supports Cross fire games can run very well! The performance scales up to double!
The Mac Mini 350+ USD
Gaming Review: Some light gaming on TeamFortress 2, League of Legends or Counter-strike along with some GTA5 the Mac mini will be able to play all those games, not perfect but it can maintain 25-80 FPS on 1280x800 with the HD 6000 model or if you can opt for the iris model and the oldest model that can play games is the HD4000 model originally released in 2012. Thats the version with easy ram and storage upgrades, its shame they made this process more difficult by soldering the back plate.
Its small and portable enough to not be noticed or herd and can be a great media center pc in the living room or bedroom.
I bought this Mac Mini for my mom!
The Imac 5k, 4k, 27 inch or 21.5 inch Starts at 1000+ USD
Gaming Review: This Imac can play any modern game with 60-80 FPS on high-Ultra Graphics at 1080p or 1440p depending on the game and configuration. I personally opted for the m395x graphics card in my imac because I knew I wanted to game, if your a big gamer grab this card its going to be very important for your gaming needs!
Personally this is my favorite computer!
The Mac Pro
Want the fastest computer Apple has to offer? Well be prepared to pay a lot of money for that extra 50-500% performance increase compared to mac mini. This Mac Pro runs on Xeon Processors and can be configured with a 12 core CPU and a 20 core experimental model CPU if you find one on ebay or amazon. its max ram is 64GB at 1866mhz and a 1TB SSD for storage. Its equipped with duel video cards each can be a 2gb, 3gb and 6gb Vram per card, each card is a AMD fire Pro D300, D500 or D700.
This computer is designed for business professionals or hardware enthusiast that demand there computers CPU to have more cores. Designed for multithreaded application processing, for video editing or 3d rendering, photo editing. this Mac's AMD Fire Pro cards have a lot of stream processors and a big amount of customizable Vram that allow for faster rendering of videos or compiling of 3d renders.
Gaming on Mac Pro: You wont have problems gaming on the Mac Pro throw any game at it and it will play pretty good including Grand theft auto, LOL and CS:GO. But if your really gonna get this model grab the D700 or D500 graphics as it will go a long way in future proofing your Mac Pro. Hold off on the extra cores because more cores will slow your gaming experience down since your GHZ speeds will drop to 2.2ghz and possibly lower when thermal throttling kicks in during intense moments.
If I could afford a maxed out model I would get one, perhaps its best to grab the cheapest model and swap out parts for a better hardware down the line as this mac is very upgradable! this would be my first pick but its expensive! Adding a video card would cost about 700-1500 from a part retailer for d700.
Mac Pro grab the base model for 2200 on ebay or amazon than grab a RAM, CPU upgrade kits and get close to maxing out your imac under 4 grand.
Closing thoughts. These Macs are for different people, all of them do the same thing but some are faster, if you want basics grab the Mac Mini, if you want power and lots of value and your willing to spend a little more grab the imac all in one. Ultimate performance? grab a Mac Pro!
