ID, EA games back on Macs

Electronic Arts co-founder and chief creative officer Bing Gordon today at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco today revealed that the company is moving staff members over to the Mac platform to once again release gaming titles for Mac users. The first titles to ship for Mac will include Command and Conquer 3, Battlefield 2142, Need for Speed Carbon, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. EA offered a demo of Harry Potter with smooth, sharp graphics and high-tech lighting effects. The company has also promised to ship Madden and Tiger Woods '08 simultaneously for Mac OS X. Id Software chief technical officer and owner John Carmack also made an appearance during the keynote, showcasing a next-generation technology with realistic cliffs, metal objects, fabrics, and more.

    GPUs?

    Mac GPUs are good for not much more than casual gaming or stuff like The Sims or World of Warcraft.. Will EA be able to get better performance out of all those chintzy integrated Intel GPUs or last-gen (or pre-last-gen) parts installed in iMacs?

    Or will Macistas have to plump out $3k for a Pro with a decent last-gen ATI card?

    Meh.

    PPC?

    Does anyone know - will these new releases be Universal apps, or Intel only? As an iMac G5 owner, it'd be nice not to be completely forgotten by the game makers as they re-embrace the Mac platform.
