Are you running the latest drivers from AMD? Seems like most of those games should run no prob, unless you are trying to game at 5K or something and the resolution is fraking with stuff?

Yikes. I have an AMD Saphire GPU and I was thinking of getting Wolfenstein: the New Order for my Mac Pro. Bad idea?

Runs fine on my wifes Radeon 7850 (at reasonable settings for that older GPU) with the current drivers.
Steam refund be your savior. It was running at 5k. The game didn't even show me the graphics dialog, it just ceased to exist. Couldn't even find the .config file, that also ceased to exist. Pursuit of any mention of a similar issue on the internet was fruitless. There were so many different conversations all over the internet about nightmares with this game that I couldn't be bothered wasting my time with it. Unfortunate I really wanted to play it.
MGSV btw looks incredible and is well optimised. I've also purchased Resident evil 4 and KOTOR2 (does anyone have advice on content restoration mods? what do i need to install?)
From a technical standpoint the computer is quite amazing. There are some teething pains but nothing like I imagined. Windows 10 has native PPi switching now and it works quite well. Windows 10 on that note is quite a nice OS, it finally has smooth fonts like OS X and a minimal amount of metro bullpopsnizzle.
Boot camp can now install all in one process too, no CD/DVD/USB Stick needed. You just load your ISO and... provided the partitioning doesn't cook your entire hard drive, It installs the OS, and then reboots and installs the drivers. Easy!
On the topic of hardware, this looks like the sort of product
we'll be able to buy in two years time. It also looks like something Intel will once again gouge the crap out of and make financially un-viable to most consumers. Staying positive though.
