Barefeats has new article comparing Mojave and High Sierra Metal performance. Spoiler is performance is the same.

Thanks jeannot :). Finally something quantitive. That is what I was expecting. As far as games, I think your on AMD, so maybe different for us on nvidia Macs, as there has been some huge hits for us.

I deleted my High Sierra partition a month ago, or I would have updated that and checked for myself. I need to check updating to Sierra thou.

It also removes "Back to my Mac" :(. I have not tried Sierra since it didn't add anything important, so don't know if any of the performance drop-off is there. No one has benchmarks? El Capitan has been so great, I am just afraid of getting the slowness to get the latest OS that just has features that are so unimportant and never use (since I can't use eGPU).

MacBook Pro retina 2012 with 10.11 El Capitan:
Cinebench R15 CPU 538 cb
Cinebench R15 OpenGL 52.39 fps
War Thunder Pacific War 83.1 fps (19018 rating) OpenGL

MacBook Pro retina 2012 with 10.13 High Sierra:
Cinebench R15 CPU 449 cb
Cinebench R15 OpenGL 42.07 fps
War Thunder Pacific War 76.4 fps (17491 rating) OpenGL
War Thunder Pacific War 35.3 fps (8073 rating) Metal

edit: for now I know I don't want to update to Mojave and lose iTunes 12.6.5 that I use all the time (thanks Janichson :) )

Blizzard announced WoW Classic Demo at BlizzCon.


Bring Home the BlizzCon® WoW® Classic Demo With the Virtual Ticket

The BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket is now available for purchase and if you’re a World of Warcraft fan you won’t want to miss a moment of the event—or the WoW extras that come with it, including epic in-game goodies and access to the Blizzcon WoW Classic demo at home!


Every BlizzCon, we look for opportunities to bring new aspects of the experience to our community around the world. This year, we’re excited to announce that for the first time ever, BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders will join BlizzCon attendees as the first people to play the World of Warcraft Classic demo we’re creating for BlizzCon at home.

Shortly after the BlizzCon opening ceremony on November 2 (on or around 1pm PDT), players will be able to download the same in-development BlizzCon WoW Classic Demo that will be playable on the show floor. Players will have a chance to explore and enjoy a limited questing experience through a pair of classic early-level zones—one Horde and one Alliance—and experience firsthand our recreation of the original Azeroth.

Once the demo is live, you’ll be able to play until 10am PST on November 8, giving BlizzCon attendees a chance to check it out again once they get back home

Notice any performance differences? When I made the mistake of High Sierra, everything was significantly slower. This includes Basic finder operations, War Thunder benchmarks and Cinebench R15 benchmarks. I am assuming Mojave would be the same slowness as High Sierra.
