Steam VR, Unity, and Unreal engines have come to the Mac for Metal 2 / Metal VR.
John Turnus, VP of hardware engineering is up to talk more about Mac hardware.
The iMac has been the gold standard of desktops for many years. The 4k and 5k displays are the best displays on any desktop. And now, they're better: 500 nits, 43% brighter than ever before. They have 10-bit dithering and can support one billion colors.
Configurable up to 64 GB of RAM.
Fusion drives standard on all 27-inch configurations.
80% faster on the base model 21 inch iMac
3x faster graphics than the previous generation.
5.5 teraflops of graphics compute. That's a great platform for VR content creation.
ILM's John Knoll comes up.
"I've always done my development on the Mac, so I'm real excited"
Using Unreal's engine to create a VR experience all powered by Mac.
It's cool how the Mac really unlocks VR with Unreal.
