    Although some experiences have been described in a few threads, I was wondering how the new iMacs fared when it comes to gaming.
    Irrespective of the XT/Pro debate how well do these machines do?

    Even subjective replies would do as I'm wondering exactly how the two 20" models compare. I've got a copy of BioShock waiting for a computer to play it on. :)

    Visit barefeats.com

    Although, last time I checked they didn't have the low-end iMac benchmarks, i'm sure they will post some benchmarks when time comes.

    BioShock runs fine on Med 1024x768 settings on the new 20" iMac with HD 2600

    I recently tested the Window version of Quake 4 Multiplayer and got an average of 60FPS with High Settings, Multi-core processor support enabled, at 1680x1050.

    Barefeats just posted upgraded Vista benchmarks on the 2.8 ghz Imac, and they are a tad better when running 1920x1200 than on XP. Just shows its a driver issue the cards have currently, both in XP and especially in OSX gaming.

    cough - Quake 4 at 120+ fps on high settings, at 1920x1200 is quite ok for decent gaming.

    WoW is a steady 80 fps at same resolution and detail level in OSX...

    Well barefeats updated and it looks as if there's a fair amount of difference between the two models.
    Looks as if the higher 20" is a better buy.
