My laptop is old but it’s gotta be more powerful than the graphics and processing of my old iPhone 5s?
I was hoping Zwift would work with one of the two laptops in the house, or the ipad2, or my android, or an android tablet, but no! But it does work with my old iPhone even though it is microscopic! I got a digital out cable and run it to a TV. It does a great job, though trying to activate the miniscule buttons on the iphone to select a workout, for example, is near impossible!
I moved to a Chrome browser and haven’t needed a Windows machine for a year, even though I still do graphics and make websites. So the idea of purchasing a Windows computer now is not something I’m looking forward too. But I have really enjoyed Zwift, and I can see I’ll eventually want the best experience.
I was assuming that Zwift would run through a browser and all the processing would be done on a server somewhere. But it seems that is not the case and you have to do a lot of processing on your local machine. I don’t understand the benchmarks and all the numbers but it’s hard to believe that my iPhone5s has all the capability to run Zwift, but my Toshiba laptop does not!
Like I said, loving Zwift, and it’s a necessity for me at the moment. I already need a new trainer because my budget smart trainer can’t handle sprints. And now it seems I need a Windows machine, a 4K TV, and a probaby a new bike!
