Game Porting Toolkit gets first update

Game Porting Toolkit gets update to beta 1.0.2. This update brings significant performance improvements as long as some important compatibility enhancements bringing support for games previously failed to be ported.

Researches highlight that some games are running better on Apple Silicon Pro and Max chips rather than Ultra chips.

Andrew Tsai made some tests with this update and was able to confirm these performance improvements.

Game Porting Toolkit is evaluated by developers

Apple's Game Porting Toolkit is now being evaluated by developers and journalists. It turns out that even without any code changes some of the games could run pretty well on the Mac.

Some additional tweaking by game developers could help improving performance and minimize overhead caused by this translation layer. Essentially, Game Porting Toolkit is Wine patch that allows DirectX 12 commands translation into Metal.
