This is my first post on MacRumors having been a reader of the site for about 4 years I haven't really felt the need to make any posts until now. However I have a few questions. Putting all the problems that some people claim to have had with their new 27" iMac's my questions relate to your estimations/opinions on how good it is at running games. I currently own a Mid 2010 17" MBP and love it, no issues whatsoever with it, and I didn't have plans to upgrade so early to a new machine, but since seeing Phil Schiller up on the stage with it months ago I was really impressed with the aesthetics of the machine. I have only in the last month or so, read some reviews on its specs; I didn't realise it was packing high end i7s, 2GB graphics cards and fast 1600Mhz RAM. I was impressed with the Fusion Drive, but I guess I told myself I could do without this, and would stick with the MBP. Also due to it not being a Retina screen I thought no point upgrading, but then I released do you really need Retina on it? As its already 2560 x 1440 and you sit a few feet from it, so its a brilliant screen anyway. Retina would probably make it lag with current graphics cards, or make so much processing power/gpu power be reserved for Retina, limiting what the non-retina could really do with today's specs. So now I arrive at the questions, do you guys reckon a top spec machine with the 2GB GTX 680MX, 8GB RAM (I'll upgrade it eventually to 32GB with 3rd party RAM) be able to run top end games etc, and older titles like Flight Simulator X on Ultra High without the system running hot? I'm basing this on a 2010 spec MBP running at one point over 80C with FSX on ultra high. I would assume as its an iMac cooling is a lot better than a 3yr old MBP, its a bigger device etc, cooling could be easier, and its 3 years newer etc. I love Apple and all the products I've owned have done me well, I used to have a cheap and ugly looking PC to run certain Windows game, but if the iMac can do everything I want without stressing itself out such as that example, I would be completely sold on it. What do you guys think? Will FSX run on ultra high etc without heating up, Flash running without using a high CPU load, or heating up? The machines are great at multitasking lots of different programs, no Windows PC can do it without slowing down, the Mac I have doesn't slow down, but I don't like thinking am I making it do too much on the CPU load, heat side of things?? It doesn't appear as though its stressing though. Even running FSX was getting 50FPS locked but it was running @80C at some points etc, so is this an issue to worry about if I saw the same thing on a new iMac? By comparsion I couldn't play FSX on ultra high on my old Windows laptop, it was like 10fps on ultra high and running at about 65C. Cheers for any answers guys.
