Intel Claims Mac Doesn’t Stand a Chance in Gaming Against Windows
#1    Intel Claims Mac Doesn’t Stand a Chance in Gaming Against Windows
The company praised Windows PCs at a Computex presentation 
Jun 1, 2021 15:57 GMT  ·  By Bogdan Popa          Apple officially made the switch from Intel to Apple Silicon last November when the company launched the first M1-powered computers, and in the long term, the Cupertino-based tech giant is fully committed to equipping more of its devices with the custom ARM chip.

In the meantime, Intel, which has most likely felt the impact of Apple’s change of mind, has embraced a new approach, trying to tell the world just how awesome Windows PCs actually are.

Not only because they run Microsoft’s operating system, but also because, you know, they come with Intel chips.

At a recent Computex presentation, for example, Intel directly said that Windows provides “better gaming experience than 100% of Mac laptops,” explaining that over 50 percent of the super-popular games out there don’t run on Apple computers.

Does Apple care about these claims? Not really
Furthermore, the company has published detailed benchmarks on its website to show just how much better a Windows device currently is as compared to a Mac when it comes to gaming.

“The 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor is the world's best for thin and light laptops. In thin & light Windows-based devices, based on unique features and performance testing (as of May 21, 2021) on industry benchmarks and Representative Usage Guides across 5 key usages: productivity, creation, collaboration, gaming and entertainment of Intel Core i7-1195G7, including in comparison to AMD Ryzen 7 5800U,” the company said, explaining that despite all the “changes to computing landscape, Intel still provides the best-real world performance.”

“And, the 11th Generation Intel Core i9-11980HK is the world's best gaming laptop processor. As measured by frames per second on similarly configured systems with 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11980HK, Intel Core i9-10980HK, or Ryzen 9 5900HX processors. Product prices may vary. Results: 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11980HK scored higher on the majority of the 29 game titles tested.”

Apple, of course, is unlikely to care too much about these claims, especially because Macs have never been about gaming anyway. And now that Apple Silicon is alive and kicking, the company is fully committed to going for its own custom chips on as many devices as possible.
