Good morning everyone. Since so many people are curious how the new iMac 27 performs in the gaming arena, I thought I would do my best to provide you with a few gaming benchmarks throughout the afternoon. It's going to take me a bit to download everything, but I'll at least note what I'm going to test below, and fill them in as I go. All tests will be conducted at maximum settings in max resolution, no AA on since it's pointless at such a high resolution. Also, these are all done under the default, non-overclocked video drivers, though I intend to overclock the hell out of this thing, since I'm fairly confident I can easily OC this to 5870m speeds without generating much more heat at all. The system is an i5 27' with the ATI Radeon Mobility 5850 (or the ATI Radeon 5750, herpa derp) and eight gigs of RAM. OSX: World of Warcraft - Don't know yet. Going to take me a while to redownload this. Torchlight - 60 FPS at all times unless there's a lot of effects going on, then it drops two or three. Windows 7: 3dMark Vantage - This seems to be one of the most asked for benchmarks. With everything on default settings (the low test basically), I scored a 7307 which is roughly 2100 more points than my 2009 iMac i7. Definitely an improvement over my quad core PC with a 9800 GTX! Later I'll run it on max settings if there's enough interest. StarCraft II - Another one that's mentioned a lot. I cannot believe how well it runs on the 27' maxed out across the board, always hovering in the 30-40 FPS range and never dipping low. I believe this game could use some updated drivers for Boot Camp, however, as there is very, very slight input delay at the high resolution that newer drivers may be able to resolve. Left 4 Dead 2 - Will find out later. Torchlight - Never dips below 60 FPS. Crysis - Such a boring game, but I'll get some benchmark results hopefully later on. If you have any requests at all, please let me know, and I'll do my best to benchmark them for you, provided I own a copy of the game.
