For those customers who have purchased the latest 2.9Ghz MacBook Pro model w/ the Radeon Pro 460 GPU compute engine ... including support for multiple external 4K/5K displays ... will these work well with XP 10/11?

The other thread was more about preference.  My question represents a non trivial number of customers / potential customers who have the new gear.  Geekbench4 shows 30% improvement on the graphics compute side, versus the mid-2015 MB Pro.

I expect the team will be testing this soon, based on this system now starting to ship.

Thanks all.  Not going to buy another computer.

No! Sorry but Mac's don't work well at all with XP, especially 11. Cooling is a BIG issue with Mac's. Mac's are used for business/daily work, even some editing but definitely not gaming! As for your CPU, even if you turbo boost it, the experience will be bad. You could have gotten a high performance laptop even with a 1080 or 1070 GPU for around the same price. That would have been great and gotten you a high quality experience. I would suggest returning the Mac and get a gaming laptop but at the end of the day, it's your choice.
