    Exciting news. Keep hearing about Metal for a long time and couldn't help but notice that NO game supported it. Until yesterday that is, with the new Legion expansion.

    It seems the Metal version is 60% faster than the old OpenGL version:

    There's already some talk about this in an earlier thread. Metal support has been available for about six weeks; you do not need to buy the expansion to get it.
