Gaming On The Mac Mini
9:06 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

In a recent article, Macworld's Game Room examined Apple's Intel based Mac Mini. The article examines the strengths and weaknesses of the Mini's hardware, covers the controversial integrated graphics issue, and discusses changes in Apple's Mac Mini advertising.

But Apple’s new Web site for the Mac mini says this:

"The Intel GMA950 graphics supports Tiger Core Graphics and the latest 3D games."

And frankly, that’s an assertion I dispute. Tiger Core Graphics? Sure. The latest 3D games? Probably not so much. We can play semantic arguments until we’re blue in the face about what “latest 3D games” means. But it seems like a lot of our readers, judging from the forum posts made this week, have higher expectations than what our initial tests are showing as possible for this machine.

I’ll be the first to tell people that if they want a gaming Mac, they’re much better off looking at an Intel iMac or even a MacBook Pro. With each additional Universal Binary game we’re getting, we’re seeing great performance on both these machines.
