    Looking to grab either a 2013 rMBP off of eBay or CL for college, and want to do some light gaming (2D platformers, indie games, and League) for on-the-go gaming. I can't really find any decent benchmarks of League on Iris. I've seen a few videos where people are getting like 20FPS, and others are at like 60FPS.

    Anyway, can someone give me some numbers for a specific setup?

    League of Legends on Windows
    1280x800 and 2560x1600 resolution
    Everything on High, shadows off
    AA off, VSync off]
    FPS uncapped.

    This is the setup I'd run on a laptop to play League, as shadows were nenver important in a MOBA game, and the first things I turn off in games to get more FPS

    Anyway, if someone could do a test run, that would help me out so much. :)

    I don't know anything about LoL, but Dota 2 is a pretty similar game. In Dota 2, I get 60fps at 1440x900 with a 2010 15" mbp (nvidia 330M) in windows, with most settings on low. A 13" with Iris should do a little better, so I think you'll be fine in windows at 1280x800. Native res will likely not run smoothly.

    Dota 2 has somewhat superior visuals though, so I imagine Intel Iris should be able to run all high settings, if I keep shadows off.

    1680x1050 65-75 fps

    2560x1600 45-55 fps


    Both under OS X

    Add 10fps more under Windows

    After the last major patch where they changed the map, riot kinda dumbed down the graphics in league...my FPS nearly doubled just from the patch....I'm assuming all computers benefit to some extent in a similar fashion. You should be fine on the iris.

    Iris Pro for the most part stays between 60-71fps at native retina rez, with all settings at highest.

    LoL is very doable on current-gen integrated.

    Awesome, my main issue is that the lack of storage due to expensive SSDs, and the dual core kind of turn me off. The storage won't matter -too- much since my biggest hog will be my music collection, but I like having too much than not enough. :p

    The dual core vs quad core is more just for light video editing and stuff.
