    Question Running Project: Gorgon on M1 Macs

    Hi everyone!

    I've been playing PG since it was in its free-to-play pre-alpha form, at which point I had a 2013 MacBook Air. I still play on that same computer, but as it's aging, I'm thinking I'm getting close to needing a new laptop. I've used Macs all my life, and have a soft spot for the design, the UNIX-based OS, and the ease of linking with all my other Apple products. That being said, my husband just got a new Lenovo Legion laptop and my jaw hit the floor when I saw he had 40-60 fps in Serbule on the good graphics setting... I've been limping to about 10 fps in Serb on the bad setting.

    So this threw a wrench into my laptop buying decision making process. I was tossing around the idea of a PC, but I know Apple came out with their new M1 processors last year. Does anyone play with that configuration, and if so, what's your performance like?

    Thanks!

    Hello,
    Can't answer about the M1 processor but I've used and played on Mac a long time.
    I began PG with a Mac, having trouble with the fps as well. The processor is not the problem, it's the graphic card. You don't have one on MacBook Air or pro, unless u specifically choose ur Mac with this option. You only have a chipset.
    So, you can choose to remain on Mac, but if you want better fps and graphics, you'll need one with a nice graphic card (it will be expensive).
    I did buy a windows computer because every time I played a game, I had to lower everything and it never gave me great fps. I kept my Mac for work and everything, the Windows one is only used for video games.

    I just order a Macbook Air M1 base configuration. Expect it to arrive within a week or so. I am also very curious as to how it is gonna go. In any case, I really hope it will outperform my late 2013 Macbook Pro 13" even when I run the game on Rosetta. My old macbook was already struggling to handle PG at 0 graphics settings for years. Will let you know how it goes :-) If anyone has already tried this please let me know what to expect.

    Short status report for those few interested. PG runs great on my new base config MacBook Air M1 in my opinion. Soo much much better than my 8 year old Macbook Pro. I got 20+FPS at Serbule well with the following settings
    Mac connected to external 4k display and output set to default (1080p).
    Game settings 4k (3840x2160) resolution, with graphics setting 4 Great.
    All other areas are clearly higher FPS. The couple I tried were around 30 at this setting. In some areas even the higher graphics settings seemed playable.

    I never seen this game in soo much detail before Imagine all that sharp text, UI and who knew there was even actual grass on the maps before :P
