With Apple already selling the iMac, iMac Pro, and newly released Mac Pro, is there room for another machine designed for gaming? If you believe the rumors, there is, with Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reporting that one will be announced during WWDC 2020.
The actual details are very thin on the ground. But the report says that the new machine will be either a large-screen notebook or an all-in-one similar to the iMac Pro. The pricing brings it into iMac Pro territory at around $5,000, too. But with gamers said to be the target audience, it’s possible that things like ECC memory and Intel Xeon chips will be cut in order to make room in the budget for high-end graphics.
Of course, there’s a ton here that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Are gamers willing to pay around $5,000 on a Mac gaming machine when a PC can be built for so much less? Probably not, and the idea of it being announced at WWDC doesn’t make too much sense either.
And then there’s the problem of games. The Mac gaming word isn’t a huge one, even with the arrival of Apple Arcade earlier this year.
We’re just not sure that demand exists, certainly not at the $5,000 asking price. But with WWDC set to take place in June if previous years are any indication, we should start to see more information about the rumored gaming Mac as we get closer to then.
