YouTuber EverythingApplePro has released a new video showcasing how a fully loaded 2016 MacBook Pro can handle some of the most demanding games.

The new MacBook Pro uses a AMD Pro 460 GPU that seems to handle a lot of demanding graphics tests very well. During the video, EverythingApplePro tests the following games on a $4,300 MacBook Pro: GTA V, Battlefield 1, Witcher 3 and Tomb Raider. All of these games have been at least somewhat optimized for Mac hardware running Windows in Bootcamp.

All of the games tested seem to perform rather well, except for Tomb Raider which suffered to hit 30 fps at medium settings. Be sure to check out the full video below:

Apple has never built the Mac for gaming, and for a fraction of the price you can build a much better gaming rig. However, if you use a Mac and want to occasionally play a game, you can safely know that your expensive purchase will be able to get you through some of the most popular games with ease.

Have you tested out any of your favourite games on the new 2016 MacBook Pro? If so, let us know what you experience has been so far with the device’s gaming performance.

  • Very nice.
    I’ve been wanting to buy a new mac to replace my 2011 MacBook Air, I’m just not liking the pricing right now, they’ve really gone up in price.

    I am on 2009 macbook pro as well. I love it, but upgrading seems too costly now…

    I just picked up my 2016 MBP 13″, 16gb ram, and it is a superb laptop. I use it for software development and just basic internet stuff.. I can’t imagine anyone buying a machine like this for gaming — way too expensive for that…

  • It really does. Right now iMac desktop computers seem to be the cheapest of the lot aside from the out dated mac Mini’s
    My plan is to wait til tax time and use the return to probably get a 27″ iMac or something. Affording out just out of your normal monthly budget is just too much without putting yourself in $2000 credit card debit hah.

    Also I’ve been keeping my eye on Apple’s Canadian referbished section too. Can often find good deals on there, backed by Apple’s standard 1 year warranty

    Gaming rigs are about the same price, even more actually, and i game on my 2012 Retina, it also has two cards, pretty much the same aspecs. Sure i have a and xbox as well, but i play diablo on the mac,

    I don’t know what kind of gaming rig you’re building for $4300 but you can build a really good rig for under $1500
