Intel’s marketing department has spent a lot of effort over the past few months attempting to wean Apple fans off of Macs and onto the PC platform. One of the arguments that blue team has really enjoyed making is that Macs simply can’t compete in terms of gaming, a point that has been stressed yet again in new promotional slides that claim PCs provide a “better gaming experience than 100 percent of Mac laptops.” Intel supported its argument with first-party benchmarks of its latest 11th Gen Core H-series processors, suggesting that they can outperform Mac systems by as much as 3.54x in select titles. The company also argued that many popular games are not supported natively on MacOS and run poorly on virtualization software such as Parallels

The red in this graph is actually an Intel-powered MacBook Pro, using a Core i9 9980HK alongside an AMD Radeon Pro 5600M to be exact, compared to the Core i5 11400H alongside a GeForce RTX 3060. Proof, if it were needed, that PCs are just better. Leading to Intel dropping the slide about PCs offering better gaming experiences than 100% of Mac laptops.
