UT 2007 is changing name to UT3 and suddenly disappears from IMG's list of release dates?

Actually, given that the release date is given (for PC & consoles) as late 2007 maybe they're fudging the title so that the Mac version can come out in early 2008 without it being too much of an embarrassment.

Tower MacPro 2x2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon / 4gb RAM / Radeon X1900 XT 512 / 20" Cinema Display.
MacBook Pro 1.8 gHz Core Duo  / 1gb RAM / Radeon mobility X1600 128 / 15" LCD
PowerBook G4 1x1.67ghz / 1gb RAM / Radeon mobility 9700 128 / 15" LCD

I suspect it's still pretty likely that MacSoft will port it.

Well they did say they wrote the editing tools for Mac and Linux too so it'd be a waste if they didn't bring the client too don't you think?

I'd guess a deal must be struck to bring this to the Mac, but this game has an excellent track record of making a Mac appearance.

Frankly, I thought UT2003 and 2004 both looked too cartoony especially the character models.  Haven't been totally
impressed by the UT2007 videos yet either.   The only thing that would probably keep me interested in 2007/U3 is the
inclusion of the Mac editor.

Hey, I know this is a bit off topic, but will UT 2004 work on the new macbooks?

Not well.  The integrated graphics can't handle it.  The Macbook Pros, on the other hand, do fine.

Not really.  It would work better with an actual graphics card, apparently.  ;)

Hard to say until it's out.  Based on what I've gathered (largely comments from Ryan Gordon from quite a while ago), it would run OK on high-end G5s, possibly with some settings turned down, assuming they do a PPC version.  Mark Rein of Epic has expressed frustration with integrated graphics, so Macbooks and Minis are probably right out.  Mac Pros should be fine (with at least a X1900), and current iMacs would also be OK-ish I think.  All that could be wrong though.

Im of the opinion that a mid to high range G5 tower (dual 2.3 and above, possibly dual 2.0) with at least a 9800 should be able to run on pretty basic settings.

based on the GPU requirements ive just guessed at, itd be Radeon 9800 minimum on the ATI side of things, and a 6600 for radeons. bear in mind that the X1600 is equivalent to the 9800, as is a 6600, and the 7300.

Integrated graphics are going to start maturing a lot in the next few years.
Intel have yet to release their next generation of them, and AMD/ATI are working on a fusion CPU/GPU with both built into one chip, as if it were a dual core processor. not to mention Nvidias efforts in this area. Mix this in with increasing FSBs and faster RAM, and we might eventually see something worthwhile. Maybe not for the newest releases, but at least competent with games of the previous year, while youd want to get a discreet GPU for serious gaming.

i reckon you can scratch PPC right out of there. the markets there but why bother doing a UB if theyre going waste all this time and then gain complaints about performance on PPC rigs

UT3 as in 2003? I imagine the 2003 version because of lack of a UB would not perform well on intel Macs.  But UT2k4 does have a UB so I'd give that version a try except I remember seeing pretty low frames for the MacBook.

Side note- UT2k4 runs just fine on my PPC G5, but that probably has nothing to do with this conversation.

No, UT3 as in "The Game Formerly Known as UT2k7" (see above).
