Steam for Mac System Requirements
Gaming on the Mac is about to get a pretty big boost with Steam for Mac OS X due just around the corner in May. Here’s what we know about the system requirements for the Mac Steam client:
* Intel processor support only
* Mac OS X 10.5 or greater, some games require 10.5.8 or 10.6.3 or higher
* X3100 and 950 integrated Intel Graphics chipsets are not supported (older MacBook models)
* Steam and Source both run native in Mac OS X with OpenGL
Games that are confirmed for the Mac version include: Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, The Half-Life Series, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal, and Portal 2. Mac users who already purchased the games for a PC will be able to use the same key and won’t have to buy the game again for the Mac version, and as expected you’ll be playing against all the PC users out there.
