    These guys are way behind even Intel in drivers. Not surprising that the real world performance in games will suck.

    Is 256GB enough for the latest generation MacBook Air

    I had an M1 base model and it was fine for basic usage. That said I am pretty good about only keeping what I need. When I buy for my parents I generally load up on the RAM and storage so that they won't call me up for tech support.

    Possible to get a worthwhile ~$200-250 upgrade for GTX 1080?

    The difference should be pretty significant. Still, you might do better to just spend a bit more for the next tier up 3060ti/3070/6700/xt etc. Can always sell the 1080 and get a bit back to make up the difference.

    [Rumor] Intel Arc A770 Early October Launch
