In Topic: Apple's M1 chip - huge GPU gain over Iris graphics

Sounds like unless you need and get one of the higher end dGPUs, the M1 is a star performer.

My GPU died and I'm stuck on Intel UHD graphics :bleedingeyes: until I get a replacement, so I've gone all the way old school and have been replaying Fallout 1 recently. Think the last time I played it was the ancient OSX port in 2011 or 2012 on my PowerBook G4 Titanium.

Marathon 1 is next.

A WallStreet!!!

Aptly named, my first trades of my life were buying AAPL in 2001 on a PowerBook G3 WallStreet. I haven't kept all of my old Macs but some of them were so cool they made the cut; my WallStreet G3 is one. In fact I think I posted a thread a ways back about how I resurrected it after I unboxed it after a move to discover it was dead. Never did get the Transcend PATA SSD I got for it working though. I need to go back to it at some point... maybe the solution of getting an M.2 SATA to PATA adapter that worked in my PowerBook G4 Titanium would work on the PBG3.

I still have a stack of dead batteries for that WallStreet in one of my desk drawers in my office. It feels wrong to clear them out.

Sometimes I want to smack Linus. This isn't one of them, great video with an even-handed realistic take.
