That hasn't much to do with the amount of VRAM, it's just how the idTech 4 engine works. It's notorious for the texture pop-in.

Have you watched Youtube playthroughs of games based on idTech 4? PCs and Macs using more than 512MB of VRAM (which is what my Mac is limited to) show much, much less visible texture pop-in.

Hi, everyone, just a quick update to let you know how things are going on my unactivated Windows 10 install.

Still get the "please activate" watermark on my desktop, and still can't change themes and the like (but who cares, right?)

I am still able to apply Windows updates as they're available, and still able to update Steam and the Epic Games Launcher. In fact, I bought the latest Wolfenstein game and it's fun so far (but my Mac has the same problems in Windows as I did in Rage under OSX (texture pop-in due to not enough VRAM). I also bought Doom 2016 during the Steam Summer Sale, and wow, what a difference a new graphics engine makes!! Guess which game runs better and smoother on my Mac with no texture pop-in? Doom 2016 FTW, baby!!

If any of you were leery as I was about being able to enjoy this cutting edge game at playable frame rate on an aging Mac, don't be! Yes, I'm running everything set to the lowest everything, you'd be surprised to learn just how good the game looks on those settings!

Just my 2 cents.... :)

Holy popsnizzle, guys. Metal 2, SteamVR, discrete GPUs on iMacs, external GPUs (!).  Is it actually April fools??

Just when I abandon AAA gaming on the Mac.


That'll learn ya! :)

Best announcement: Black, Extended wireless Apple Keyboard. If that isn't sold separately I will murder a small kitten.


I wish that Apple (or someone) would do a wired version of it with mechanical keys. :)

Metal 2, SteamVR, Vive VR support, plug-and-play e-GPU support, AR Kit:

This could very well be the best DubDub for gamers ever!

And, Michelle Obama exercising her right to bare arms ;)

And the best part of course, is that High Sierra is fully baked! :)
