Lucky I only need to upgrade my processor.. But that thing was getting old anyway, I was waiting for a reason to upgrade it :pBought a 1TB SSD a month ago and I must say that it is really really convenient. Dalaran loads in like 6 sec :D
Yeah, to be honest i don't think these are the real launch system requirements for BFA - Worse case scenario: Blizzard has some Electonic Arts PR people in there overstating the requirements to increase sales for Hardware distributors- which isn't anything new in this industry.Best-case scenario: these are the current BETA specs for BFA and haven't been optimized yet.
By the way, now is a horrible time to be upgrading your computer. There's a graphics card shortage right now : The current CPUs are all vulnerable to exploits, and the software fixes mean that have been released mean taking a performance hit.I'm going to wait until the beta for BfA, and re-evaluate things then. Hopefully they've come to their senses and optimized the game a bit more, and reduced the requirements. If I do really need to buy a new computer to play WoW when BfA comes out, then at least hopefully there might be better upgrade options on the market at that time.
Well, can't afford the upgrade. Here in my country taxes and greed from vendors make the prices too high. And real life costs a lot more. In my home, it's one or the other.
Just bought a new computer, should have any day! How will this work ?AMD Ryzen 5 1600NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB8GB DDR4 Memory240GB Solid State Drive2TB 7200RPM Storage
my workstation cpu is gonna bottleneck me. :( like always. it's 8 cores but slow speed and prolly only 4mb cache not sure. i think i'll be ok, i used to run this game on worse and only like to replace my PC when it dies and i never run on max. if i have to turn off shadows while raiding, so be it. but luckily i can have full shadows while questing. :) i have everything on max but force the "distance" sliders to all be 5 since i couldn't notice a real world practical difference for anything above 5 unless i fly around the world a lot. (which nobody did cause of the flight limitations)all in all. i'm hoping i'm good to go.
Everything seems fine to me still except the video card. Already have the warning saying my computer will be obsolete and that I need a new card that can use metal. This mean the game will run badly or will it not let me play?
How many WoW tokens for a new computer?
So they're gonna make particles twice as heavy as they did in legion? :D
They aren't recommending Windows 10 anymore! :D
Still cracks me up how 1024x768 is still a minimum display requirement.As others have said in here I really do hope that they get their head in the game and make it properly multi-threaded. From the legion pre-patch I noticed that my (admittedly trash Mac laptop) had problems. Even more so with the introduction of Metal drivers and the jump to Sierra. However starting around patch 7.2 onwards, the game has run excellently even with me running a plethora of addons. For patch 7.3 I held off updating to High Sierra because of complaints of flickering after the upgrade. But I upgraded regardless when it was shown that Apple was taking their time with the Spectre and Meltdown exploits on anything but High Sierra. WoW runs well and I see flicker (I was seeing at 7.3 anyways) but I don’t mind given how old this machine is from when I got it through the college store.As a side note, Addon control panel is something that I discovered during NH when I learned that having all my usual addons on (sans transmog ones) lagged me out continuously during Skorpyron to spellblade. With my computer tanking again at Elisande. I can set the bare essentials for M+ and raid. And then can easily switch to a pre-selected list for regular world content or content I don’t care about (LFR). Really helpful when using the AllTheThings addon too.Hopefully everything on the market stabilizes in price (cryptocurrency driving prices up) so that I can use the 1080ti I bought last summer when I was thinking of making an eGPU.Tl;dr hardware prices are still terrible and if these are geniune requirements even after Blizzard has done their part, expect to see people be unable to play until later in the year. Or be forced into a “solo” game experience for fear of degraded game playability.Laptop spec for the people who don’t care:2012 15” non-retina MBPi7-3615QMIntel HD4000 with Nvidia GT650m 512mb16 GB 1600 MHz ddr32 TB seagate HybridThe upgrades were cheap and easy. $100 for the sshd and ram each. Just had to wait and space out the upgrades.
