Yesterday, 10:44 AM

While we weren't looking, Aspyr has finally updated the Steam version of Civ V to 64-bit. About frigging time.

That would likely be acceptable for many non-3D 32 bit indie games.
Codeweavers' technology is actually driving the 64-bit version of Final Fantasy XIV for Mac. Seems neither non-3D nor indie to me. :P

Depends on my mood. Sometimes I want to immerse myself in a great story with interesting characters and involving plot, sometimes I just enjoy to turn off my brain and get lost in the thrill of the action.

4096 x 2304 is true  16:9 4k. 6016 x 3384 is the 6K resolution of the Pro display.

Hm, okay. Seems about right.

​I expect the lack of true 4k on the built in display is for power saving. At 15 - 16 inches the PPI is already very high. They look SHARP to the human eye. Another thousand pixels is another thousand pixels to power for what may be considered a marginal visual improvement.
How tight must the energy budget be when there's not enough juice to push that extra pixels - which, by the way, many competitors offer.

And the point of having actual 4K is not so much that the pixels on the current displays are so disgustingly huge. It's that if you want or need scaled higher resolutions on your MacBook display, you absolutely will see scaling artifacts, like flickering fine lines or blurred details.
