Apple M1 Max plays GTA V, CS: GO, Crysis using high graphics settings in latest MacBook Pro 16 – Own Snap
Apple is showing its muscles through the rich gaming world where certain triple A titles melt graphics cards and processors. The latest M1 Max Apple Silicone is capable of more than just a boring workstation. A real hardware test was put on the Apple M1 Max chip which is “Gaming”! Many future MacBook Pro 16 buyers are looking for the SoC M1 Max to run any game in the world, whether on a Windows emulator or directly from the Steam store.
Surprisingly, M1 Max delivers a huge loaded punch consisting of 10 processors and 32 GPU cores with 32GB of memory, all in one roof. Andrew Tsai’s newly created YouTube channel focuses on MacBook hardware benchmarks on the Parallels or CrossOver method that can run Windows OS games on MacOS. The impressive first GTA V played on the M1 Max gaming benchmark made waves due to a stable 90fps frame rate in normal settings with MXAA turned off.
On the flip side, last year’s original M1 chip runs GTA V above 40 fps and the latest M1 Pro can carry the game up to 80 fps on average. Unfortunately, GTA V has CPU overload issues in MacBook Pro 16, even with the M1 Max chip, as the game runs on CrossOver emulation software. Either way, new weekly CrossOver updates could fix these issues and GTA V can be played on Max settings soon.
The most prominent first person shooter and highly addicting online multiplayer is of course CS: GO by steam launcher. Surprisingly, Apple’s SoC M1 Max is running CS: GO above 70 fps in an intense online shootout with the graphics settings all set to low. Usually, CS: GO can melt laptop hardware, causing the fan to spin up quickly and increase noise levels.
Can the MacBook Pro with M1 Max run Crysis? Granted, the original 2007 Crysis runs an average frame rate of 60 fps with a smooth experience on the M1 Max chip’s CPU and GPU hardware using high settings with ease. This question brings more headaches to Apple hardware developers from gaming enthusiasts. But now Tim Cook can rest well after seeing that Apple’s internal silicone is capable of running the Crysis game from 14 years ago.
