CAN YOU BUILD A MAC GAMING RIG???

by birtanpublished on May 12, 2021

Hey guys what's going on it's Karl here back with another episode and I know you can probably tell this one is slightly controversial as we are building a gaming rig out of a Mac and I can already foresee the top comment on this video PC master-race or gaming Mac they don't belong in the same sentence you're an idiot but let me slow your horses for a sec and kind of explain so I've primarily been a Mac user for the longest time I've had three versions of the MacBook Pro for the past I'd say almost 12 years originally I started off with this old

Guy and that could run low settings of World of Warcraft I then upgraded four years later to this one which could now run maybe some Starcraft 2 if I was lucky and four years later we now have my last model right behind me and I haven't even downloaded a single game because generally Macs gaming those just do not interchange so typically if you have a math you kind of have two options the first which is what I did you kind of just have to supper play some basic games on some low settings and that's kind of the end of the story or you can

Download boot camp partition your hard drive install a copy of Windows separately and you can kind of still play a couple games better than you could on the Mac side and I know for all the PC peeps out there you've got dedicated gaming laptops so I'm not going to comment how big how bulky they are or like most of you you are building your own dedicated PC gaming rig which I still plan to do and you need powerful guys like this the gtx 1062 1080 so you can rock 4k games at a high frame rate and just will crush anything any console will put out and just is the cream of

The crop when it comes to gaming you guys are you right here and this is where this video kind of leaves in NVIDIA has a beta service currently out now called GeForce now which you can turn your Mac into a high-end virtual gaming PC it essentially will connect your Mac to an on-demand access GeForce GTX gaming PC up in the cloud and in turn your math into a high-performance of virtual gaming PC which you can rock and play games at a higher level at better frame rates and I've even been getting games in the extreme and ultra modes on this guy and even on my iMac

Down there which is pretty impressive before we get into the details I will leave my unique code down below so you guys can check out the beta it's currently free right now so definitely check it out but it's super super simple to install and within a couple minutes you can be up and running on your Mac and playing games that either before you rocked at lower settings or games like overwatch which aren't even available on Macs you can now run them with no problems at extreme settings which is awesome and once you watch the app you can see all

The games that are currently supported by GeForce now games like overwatch Starcraft 2 fallout 4 v 5 the list is growing slowly over time and the nice thing is if you already own these games either through Steam or Blizzard simply just log in and you can start playing like that so for example Starcraft 2 which I've run on this guy behind me even though it's a four thousand dollar computer I could never get ultra settings I was kind of stuck to medium to high couldn't run on the highest resolution using GeForce now all of my settings are maxed out and it is silky

Smooth easily pushing over 60 FPS games like overwatch which I've only played over at my buddy Tessa's as they have PC not even available yet on a Mac I can now successfully play once again settings maxed out without a hint of live without a drop framerate and it's been super smooth and I've had no complaints I can finally level up my character level 3 right now pitiful even more graphic intensive games like Sims 5 I can crunch through without any difficulties even at Ultra and high settings I've been super impressed for something that is so simple to use and

You don't have to partition your hard drive it essentially just works perfectly as an app it's awesome so this service is currently available in both Canada and the US and as I mentioned it is right now free beta definitely definitely check it out I know in the future they are switching over to a pay-as-you-go service so in the meantime go check it out go play for free and go tell your friends that yes you can rock games over on your Mac they still might troll you how expensive your device was but at least you guys can rock some games I can

Still see PC master-race top comment after all of this anyways I hope you guys enjoyed this little intro to GeForce now and I'll definitely make a video in the future as this service gets better as I log more gaming time and of course to keep all of you guys connected for maybe some of you PC peeps out there or looking to still build your own PC I am giving away this geforce gtx 1060 to one of you guys out there so super simple just sub to the channel follow me over on instagram where i'll probably make the announcement and leave a comment down below what game you would

Rock under Mac or I guess what game you'd rock in general if you already have a gaming PC and just remember to try to keep the comments in very civil place I know this is a pretty heated topic and I will catch the rest of you in one of my next episodes or in one of my next vlogs peace
