I do also like to do some gaming in free of work time just to relax the way i like.
And 58FPS in Diablo III seems quite low as for D700. My order is for D500 so it will be like 40FPS?. So far it looks like Apple really overdid it in the "pro" way.
It'll be interesting to see, but there's absolutely no way the Mac Pro will run X-Plane at maximum settings. Depending on how the GPU's shape up for games (yet to be known really) it may run it pretty darn well, but X-Plane will outperform pretty much anything in terms of desire for horsepower.
It's almost limitless in it's demands. Good frame rate? Just keep cranking the settings up and eventually any computer will bend. To some extent that's the nature of true open-world games such as high-end sims.
That all said, I'm still keen to see!
Not sure where Mr. Bazu got his info, but it's only pushing 58 FPS in Diablo3 which is hardly an intensive game on cpu or gpu.
Helpful article ... I'm a flight enthusiast so don't know if 58 and 86 are "good" or "ok". When you spec out a Falcon with dual Titans, it's pricer than a similar nMP spec with dual 700's. Not a windows fan, so still very tempted by the nMP.
Well I am in graphic design industry but I do also like play games. Mostly SC2, WoW or D3. What I'd expect is FP D500 (one i ordered) have similar performance to FP W7000 in those games. But so far it looks like on paper it has better specs but in real games usage it is worse.
Here you go.
Looks like D700 is same performance in games as 780M. So predictions D700 is some sort of W9000 were bit off. D500 will probably be somewhere near 770M or worse .
Check data for 760M.
Also check W7000 or W9000 performance in games. It doesn't look like any of new D's
Actually it's somewhat intensive on GPU, but I do doubt that it's anywhere near that low on the D700.
don't overreact to one hastily published result, bazu. details will come soon and then we'll know what's up. right now we hardly know anything about what's behind the numbers.
Not trying to overact. Trying to find out how those numbers compare. You must admit that so far those don't look promising.
well, given that insane fcp.co video showing a nMP playing redcode 8:1 4k footage with 18 effects in realtime, I'd say gaming results that equal other single gpu systems are a good indicator that the games are only using one gpu-- an iMac can't do what's in that fcp.co video. so lets wait and see what barefeats and anandtech have to say.
also, 'overreact' was a poor choice of words on my part. sorry about that. just meant we really don't have enough info to be drawing any conclusions like "the nMP sucks for gaming" yet.
