    All tests are done in boot camp at 1400x900 with the 13" TB MBP with Iris Pro 550 8GB/512GB base CPU. I will put FPS and most playable setting.

    • Ark Survival - Low - 32FPS
    • Smite - Maxed - 160FPS
    • The Division - Med - 35FPS
    • Battle Front - Med - 32 FPS
    • WOW Moonguard RP Goldshire Inn - Max - 50FPS
    • Overwatch - Coming Soon...
    • STARCRAFT 2 - MAX Settings - 50FPS
    • Heroes of the Storm - Max Settings - 45FPS
    Please request a game to test, and I'll add results my very best. Thanks!

    Wow Ark on the 13" MBP @ 32FPS? Shocking. Wonder how the 15" will do. Pretty demanding game.

    A comment on fan noise (RPM if possible) while gaming would be greatly appreciated!

    That's good to hear! I tried the non 2016 TB 13" and a game like WOW made the fan spin to almost 6000 RPM. And at that point both the volume and pitch became very annoying.

    Thank you so much for doing this. I've been searching everywhere for a thread like this.

    How well would Starcraft 2 work on Windows. My purchase of the 13" Mbp TB rest entirely on this question. Again, thank you for spending your time to answer our questions. >3

    I purchased a nTB 13" just this past week and will be trying out a few games as well! So far I have found the iris 540 to be quite capable of a IGPU. Its still not as good as a lower end dgpu but that should come as no surprise. What is surprising is that it doesn't seem to be much of a hindrance to the system overall as the previous IGUs have been.

    Overwatch in 1080p high and medium presets, please. I am curious, how powerful this little thing is, in comparison to dGPUs.

    Fair Enough :). Then Maybe Heroes of the Storm? I have seen now the post. 45 FPS. in 1440x900? Max settings?

    GT650M in the same resolution is struggling to get past 35 FPS on Medium... O_O.

    Just tried out overwatch on the 540.... At 1400x900 and the lowest possible settings (75% render scale) it was only able to achieve 32FPS. Was expecting more.

    It will probably run about 35-45 on the same settings on the iris 550. The 15 watt processors seems to Peter out earlier as well due to headroom.
