Anybody else think that Apple should ditch Metal in favour of Vulkan? If they want the latest games ported to Mac then they should use an open API that is used on other platforms.
But I am starting to think that maybe ports is not Apple's game... Maybe they want there to be almost only Apple-specific titles on Mac so that people wouldn't compare performance on Mac to that on PC or consoles. Now that they are known mostly for laptops and their desktop machines are also having laptop-grade internals then they are not going to be able to compete on graphics performance anyway.
Ports means you're writing to least common denominator. The point of Metal is to make use of the iPhone and Mac hardware. And big companies like Blizzard are already sigining up to do Metal games. What exactly would be the point to ditch Metal to use some kind of compromise multi-platform alternative that
