The source says Apple is going to release a handheld console that will compete with the Nintendo Switch and the yet to be released Steam Deck.
Few know that Apple released a console called the Apple Bandai Pippin, which launched in 1996 and was discontinued a year later. The company’s goal was to create a low-cost computer system designed primarily for playing multimedia software on CDs, in particular games.
Bandai produced around 100,000 units but only sold around 40,000 consoles. In May 2006, Apple’s Bandai Pippin was ranked 22nd in PC World’s 25 worst technology products of all time. Now Apple is ready for another try.
Apple’s console will be a hybrid device that combines the portability of a Switch with the performance of a PlayStation 5. In this regard, the Steam Deck is a huge fan of the game’s launch of AAA games. Rumor has it that Apple’s console will work with the company’s upcoming augmented and virtual reality headset.
It is also reported that Apple has launched the development of several games and connected large studios. The company already has analogues for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey.
No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games
The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.
And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.
However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.
Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
An offline game has appeared in the Opera gaming browser in case of an unstable Internet connection or network disconnection
Opera Software has announced the launch of an innovation for the Opera GX browser. As a reminder, Opera GX is being promoted as a browser designed specifically for gamers. The innovation is intended to brighten up the moments when Wi-Fi suddenly disappears for game lovers.
In this case, the arcade game Operius appeared in the browser, which can be played offline. Created with GameMaker Studio 2 engine, the game will automatically appear in the browser every time the connection fails. If someone wants to play Operius on a stable internet, they can simply type opera: // operius in the Opera GX address bar.
Operius was selected through a competition involving more than 900 games created in GameMaker Studio 2. As a result, Operius won a poll where more than 100,000 Opera GX and GameMaker users voted for eight games selected by experts.
Operius features retro graphics inspired by 1980s space arcade shooters and a soundtrack from Catonator. Multiplayer is available to players without the Internet: in order to do this, you need to enter the mode for two players and then share the keyboard with a friend.
