Just got the i5 6630m Mini... Will tell you as soon as the download finishes!!!!!!!!!!I'm planning on buying a mac mini as soon as I sell my current machine. I'm not a huge computer gamer but Diablo 3 is one that I plan on getting. Can anyone with beta access let me know how the game plays on their mini?
I'm running the Diablo 3 beta, and it plays very well at 1366x768 on my HDTV. 1920x1080 was giving me some ghosting I didn't like, and the lower res gives more room for overhead.Although not ideal, you could try it at a lower resolution (yeah, I know scaling isn't the best either), and perhaps get med settings working.
A laptop resolution of 1366x768 (or 1280x720) will be much easier on the graphics chip. I didn't check the 6630m, but even the lowly HD 3000 is on the list of supported chipsets for Diablo 3 (albeit at the lower end).
What settings do you use apart from the resolution? And what sort of FPS are you getting?I'm running the Diablo 3 beta, and it plays very well at 1366x768 on my HDTV. 1920x1080 was giving me some ghosting I didn't like, and the lower res gives more room for overhead.
I've got the Mac Mini with the Radeon 6630 and a 2.5GHz i5.
Unfortunately, they removed the /showfps command in Patch 13, so I can't tell you FPS. (I haven't tried Patch 14 yet.) Other than that, I stick with the standard settings, since other than shadows, nothing seems to make a difference. The chip in the mini has a hard time with complex shadows, so you see the biggest performance boost lowering the shadow detail.What settings do you use apart from the resolution?

I currently have a 2.53 GHZ C2D Macbook Pro 13" with a 9400m... Starcraft 2 is playable with low graphic settings, and on laptops resolution - impossible to go over to my 24" display and dare to go up from 1280x800 - slows down
ps. I wish Apple released new mac minis soon with updated GPUs so we could run Diablo 3 on them at least on medium settings to get good experience on gameplay.
