Just installed Unreal 4 Editor on:
Mac Pro 2009
2x 2.26 Ghz Quad-Core
32 GB Ram
ATI Radeon HD 5870
The initial impression was good with some of the starter kits (like first person shooter blueprint).
However, when opening the various content examples (Shooter Game, Mobile Temple, Effects Cave etc.) the system is brought to it’s knees immediately. It’s not a frame rate issue even it’s an overtaking of all usability of the computer. I managed to change the Engine and Texture quality to Low in the shooter game and even then it would not run smoothly. For example if I fired the gun the whole machine would freeze for a while.
I am wondering what the timeline for improving the Mac performance is.
Or - maybe there is some issue I need to address which I would love to know.
