Does Warzone 3, and MW3 & Zombies run on MacBook Pro M1 Pro.

Also, do you think GTA6, and the next blackops 2024 will run on this?

If so, is it really worth paying £500 more for the M1 Max.

Thanks.

AFAIK you would have to either stream it or use a VM which could potentially decrease your game performance, since it's not directly supported on Mac.

Are you specifically set on getting a Mac to use for gaming?

Yeah, you won't be running demanding games like that on a MacBook since they aren't made for gaming. Your best bet would be to use a VM as Sus said such as GeForce Now, Shadow or use Parsec if you already have access to a powerful machine. Laptops also lower their performance to conserve battery life too (not sure if it works the same on Apple products) so you would need to be plugged in for you to receive the maximum performance.

I would just build a Windows machine using parts that are made for gaming if that is your aim. You can get a laptop if you plan on moving a lot however the performance won't be as good and you often pay more than you would if you were to buy each of the parts and put them in a desktop build. There are a few very helpful people who are active in the PC building section so if you choose to go down that route, you can always ask for help there.

No, I'm just looking to upgrade from my 2019 MacBook Pro.

Since I have a budget, I was debating the upgrade to M1 Pro, which I don't NEED, but I would see benefits from.

On the other hand, my 2019 MacBook Pro has just been replaced by apple, so I was thinking of keeping it and getting something like a legion go for gaming.

But, I feel like I would make more use from the MacBook upgrade, i I though if I could game too, it's the best of both worlds.

Have had Xbox, a PC, and a ps4 in the past but I'm not looking to keep things as portable as possible.

Am not sure what I'll do to be honest!

Was considering a gaming laptop but I hate windows purely because I like that I can call apple anytime with ease for support.

Idk...

Ok thanks.

I'm just looking to upgrade from my 2019 MacBook Pro, and was hoping to game also. I've been consider a legion go, I've seen warzone 3 running fairly smooth on it. I'm trying to keep as mobile as possible due to needing to move around and potentially travel in the future.

Did look at a gaming laptop, the razor blade looks good, but was unsure how it would compare to a MacBook for productivity, and I do not like windows, mainly for support.

In your situation personally I would just get a gaming laptop for gaming and keep your 2019 Macbook for personal use.

What are the specs on your Macbook btw? If it has an intel chip, you should be able to actually run a legit copy of Windows 10/11 on it via bootcamp. It wouldn't be a VM so wouldn't be limiting you there.

So you could boot into Windows when you wanna game and switch to your Mac OS otherwise. Only thing is if your Macbook's hardware specs are not that great for gaming, you would be very limited with your gaming performance.

I would have recommended bootcamp with a newer Macbook however that functionality got removed once Apple introduced the M1 chipset unfortunately.

It's i7 16gb / 512gb but it's only got the 5300m 4gb so may not be great for newer games. Plus, I did instal windows with boot camp but had a few issues. Maybe I'll try again, or search up some benchmarks to see if I can maybe run MW3 with this GPU.

I might just get the legion go.
