So I got a new macbook pro 13" retina and I was just wondering if it would be able to handle games like LoL and Minecraft. I tried downloading LoL but my internet was just too slow and it already started fanning a little bit( probably because it's a big file).
I play Minecraft on my 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina Display all the time and it runs pretty nicely. Unless you are used to playing with shaders enabled at 60+ fps then you should be fairly pleased with the performance!
I haven't tried LoL in a while on OS X but last time I gave it a go the Mac client was so buggy I couldn't actually play a full game without something crashing or going wrong. Maybe take a look on the LoL forums to see if people are still reporting similar issues.
I'm playing on my 2014mid macbook pro 15". 1650x1050 60fps high/medium settings. It can push 100fps when not capped. But when big fight is going on. 40minions 10champs, shiv crits everywhere. Then it drops to 40 50fps
