Macs have never been characterized as a platform to playAlthough that could change in the coming years if Apple develops more powerful integrated graphics cards than the current ones, as it should be remembered that current eGPUs are not compatible with new Macs with ARM processors.
Blizzard, the developer behind World of Warcraft just announced than one of his best known titles, works natively on computers managed by the M1 processor, without having to use the Rosetta 2 emulator, becoming the first great game to offer it.
As we can read in the Blizzard post regarding this compatibility:
With this week’s patch 9.0.2, we added native Apple Silicon support to World of Warcraft. This means that the WoW 9.0.2 client will run natively on the ARM64 architecture, rather than being emulated through Rosetta.
We are delighted to have native support for Apple Silicon from day one.
Although our tests have been successful, we are very aware of the nature of day one support with updates like this. Please let us know if you have any issues with Apple Silicon on our Mac Support forum.
The first Macs with M1 processors began yesterday to reach the first users who have thrown themselves headfirst into it. change of course that Apple has made leaving aside the Intel processors to use their own.
Single-core performance tests of these new processors are offering very good numbers, so everything indicates that the transition from Intel to ARM will not be a problem for the users or for the company itself.
