    So, I've been googling around and I'm wondering if anyone knows of any FPS benchmarks for the 2011 models yet. More specifically, the i7 27" w/ 6970 1GB and also 2GB.

    So seeing as you can plug 2 displays and the 27" has the 6970m, can you do eyefinity gaming in Windows? Even though you'd have to turn down the details and probably resolution to 1080, that would be pretty awesome.

    Portal 2 gameplay

    Max resolution
    Max settings
    x8 aa
    filtering x16


    between 40-60 fps it seems.

    Now i dont want to sound like a fanboy or anything. But for a all in one system running a brand new game with max settings, everything maxed at those fps, is pretty sweet. turn down the aa/filtering and u will see even more steady fps.

    And yes PC people can say their system is running this at 200fps, but the monitor limited the "experience" to 60fps anyways so anything over that is just overkill.

    Hope to see more results soon

    Thanks for that article! That made my decision to just buy it at the store instead of waiting a week and a half so much better. Now I can just sit back and relax and enjoy this lovely beast.

    Yea ... and another experience is, you can´t get those beautifull screen 1440P, IPS panel with a Quad GPU winblows PC unless you pay much much more than an iMac, which would defeat the purpose of showing a Mac for being too expensive

    Not to mention fan blows like an aircraft and those unnecessary LEDs on CPU chassis to enlight the darkside of winblows

    And insane electric bill of course, so screw you :apple: hater :D

    God. I was terrible :/

    Haha! Be a fanboy, mate, if you feel like it. Good for you...!

    Mind you - not wanting to rain on the parade - I'd say Portal 2's greater attribute is visual design, rather than graphic complexity. Get Crysis running on that bad-boy, and get back to me...! ;)
