Is the 16-inch MacBook Pro playable? The author's actual test: the software is not yet "ready"!

The 16-inch version of the MacBook Pro launched by Apple, I believe many users are considering buying, and the performance is improved, so that the new MacBook Pro can finally deal with the full HD image quality of the next generation of works, but in the end, can the new generation of products play games? The author took a test and the result was temporarily unavailable.

The MacBook Pro's CPU uses the Intel Core i9 processor, of course, the performance is quite high, but in addition to the CPU's performance, the game requires the ability of the GPU to promote it. Apple has used AMD's 5500M graphics card on the latest products. After testing, The performance is similar to that of GTX 1650, and it is also the performance of GTX 1060 3GB version.

However, currently on the 16-inch MacBook Pro, there is a problem with the driver when installing Windows 10.

Apple's Windows 10 driver seems to have some bugs that will cause full-screen applications to run on Windows. There will be proportional problems. For example, if you set the 1920 x 1200 resolution, it will shrink when playing games. It doesn't work, but it works fine without borders.

Therefore, although the 16-inch version of the MacBook Pro can indeed play games, it needs Apple to make improvements in the driver to use it smoothly.
