Is Metal 3 exclusive to M2 and the App Store?
Today I look at the question I’ve been asked a lot in the last few days: is Metal 3 going to be exclusive to the M2 Mac or will older Macs be able to take advantage of the benefits of Metal 3? And will the new AAA games: Resident Evil Village, No Man’s Sky and Grid Legends run on older hardware, and will they be exclusive to the App Store or will they come to Steam as well?
