CS:GO on 16" MacBook Pro

 Share

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I am going to travel a lot in the next few years, and am going to buy a Macbook Pro 16". The only game I play at the moment is CSGO. Here are the specs.

i9, 8 cores, 2.4 GHz.

32gb Ram

And Radeon 5500M 8gb GDDR6.

It could run, but definitely not at native resolution. You would have to drop if go 1080p in order for it not to be a slide show. You will also need a dongle to get a normal mouse plugged in. Not sure about thermals, but I suspect any really long gaming sessions would be out of the question.

why spend 3.5k on a laptop?

what is your reason for a mac here?

you likely can run it at full res just not a high framerate

I used to play csgo in a 2015 iMac (lowest spec) with frame rates that were definitely playable. So if you’re already getting the laptop for other purposes and this is just an added benefit, then you’re good. If you are buying this laptop for gaming, then go windows. 

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

I suspect it will get 100+ frames per second at the displays native resolution.  The thing will get mighty warm, so I wouldn't want to play with it actually on my lap, but it should be fine.

 

edit: I just booted into CS GO running an i5 8400, an RX590, and 16gb of RAM and was between 95 and 130 fps running at 4k resolution.

Tbf you can play CSGO on it fine and you don’t have to deal with windows which is always a plus
