    Hello guys, I have a problem with the new BattleGrounds game, which is like h1z1. Anyway, whenever I look northeast or southeast, I get horrific lag that renders the game unplayable. On the plane i get around 10 fps, in air around 15, and on ground, as long as im not looking in those directions, i get 25-30 fps. I'm playing on a macbook pro 2015 that has a intel i7 quad core, an intel iris graphics, and 16 gb of ram. Is it just the shitty specs, or the game? I can run overwatch on medium at 45 fps, so idk if its the game or my macbook. Any help will be appreciated

    Looking at the minimum spec it says you need the gtx 660 and you probably have the iris pro 5200 which is weak and did you try the lowest settings? Overwatch doesn't need a powerful graphic card, maybe that's why you get high fps from there.

    So i think it's your laptop problem, did you buy it for gaming? You could have gotten a much better one for lower price.

    Overpriced, the specs are great with i7 processor, retina 2k display, 16gb ram, probably ssd 256gb. All great, but no powerful graphic card. That's apple for you, same like iphone and other products that people buy.

    If you plan on getting a laptop with 1070 or even 1050 ti, it's 100 times better than macbook for gaming.

    Do u have any suggestions? I was thinking about the Asus rog strix, with the i7 and the gtx 1070, but are there any others that are a bit cheaper? As the one I'm thinking about is 1600

    To be honest, I don't know which brand is good or bad try to read reviews or if any other member can suggest to you. Your budget is 1600$ right? I think you should be able to get 1 with nvidia gtx 1060, which is awesome too for full hd gaming.

    The game itself isn't very well optimized as well. I have an i7 4790K as well as a 1080 and still get massive FPS drops. (From 89 FPS to 29 FPS in some places.) Battlegrounds is in early access so I hope they fix it up a bit more in that regard.

    Still the intel gpu isn't the best but you can wait for optimization if you want, even though playing at 10 to 20 fps is horrible.

    Yeah, I've gotta save up. It'll take me around 5 months to save 1,400$, but it'll be worth it.
