NVIDIA’s GeForce Now let me play ‘The Witcher 3’ on a MacBook Air – Engadget

Saturday, January 07, 2017

Being able to play The Witcher 3 on such an underpowered system is intriguing enough, but I was also surprised by how well it ran. I tried as hard as I could to make the game stutter, but even when I moved the mouse around like a madman, there was surprisingly low latency between my movements and what was on screen. I also tried hard to find compression artifacts in…

Saturday, January 07, 2017

This wasn’t the shovelware or six-year-old games that Mac users are used to. (Don’t play, you know I’m speaking the truth.) I played Witcher 3—a game that’s never been released on Macs. On a GeForce GTX 1080—a graphics card never found…

(That’s also bigger than the 13-inch MacBook…
