MacWorld: The Mac Pro from a Gamer's Perspective
8:45 AM | Evan Holt | 4 comments

Peter Cohen from MacWorld has posted a weblog on the release of the new Mac Pro from Apple.

Peter takes a look at the features of the new Apple tower such as the 16-lane double-wide PCI Express slot and what it means to the Mac gaming community:

The Nvidia GeForce 7300 GT card that Apple includes in the “standard” Mac Pro configuration is competent enough, but the best cost benefit for gamers appears to be the ATI Radeon X1900 XT card you can add on to the system for an additional $350. Apple’s own benchmarks running Doom 3 and Quake 4 produce frame rates more than twice as high with the ATI Radeon X1900 card than with the GeForce 7300. That shouldn’t be a huge surprise—the memory bandwidth, number of vertices per second the cards can process, and fill rate make the Radeon X1900 XT a much better fit for gamers.
You can read Peter's entire weblog following the link below.
