I was wondering if anyone with an iMac 5K who plays overwatch would share how their performance is (with which settings).

Considering buying one but I would really like to play overwatch on it. It doesn't run at all on my Macbook Pro with 650M.

Easy reply for this Overwatch is not available for the Mac, only on PC PS4 and Xbox One.

Well unless your Bootcamping that is.

It doesn't run at all with your MBP? Settings are turned down I assume? That's pretty surprising.

Not sure about the 5k, but i too am wondering how my system will perform..

....using bootcamp on my 2011 27'' 3.5ghz i7. I think its got a ATI 6670M GPU, but cant check as im not home.

Guess ill try it out anyways, see how it goes on the lowest settings.

Another reason Apple will not do anything.

Just to add some more info, I have a 15" rMBP with the 2.5/16 and 750m. I installed Overwatch today and it's playing well. The auto detect did a good job IMO, res is 1600x900 and everything is on low. It plays smooth and my FPS stays around 55-65.

It's probably a little bit of cognitive dissonance, but I don't feel like playing a game like this (that isn't photo realistic) on low settings is much of an inconvenience.

Also, it's a really fun game!
