LOL recommending an i7 for this game is so stupid (cocky blizz stuff) Game isn't optimized since forever,and I don't see any difference in graphics (low/high/ultra same shiet), but you need mooore money like always.Hope you learn something in near future because this is a JOKE! Game graphics are not so demanding so that is another JOKE. But like fella before me said: Blizzard has some Electonic Arts people in there to increase sales for Hardware distributors- which isn't anything new in this industry.Luckily my pc can run this joke very well, but to think of those poor souls who won't run game properly, shame on you Blizz!can't wait to see some triggered fanboy start hating me here x)
My one wish for BFA is proper multithreaded CPU optimisation.Every time this comes up the Blizzard defenders come in "Waaah my PC plays WOW with only 2% CPU, its optimised already!". Typically these same people don't know that by default Windows 10 task manager shows the overall CPU utilisation across all cores. Switch to viewing cores individually and when running WOW you'll see one core at 80-100% utilisation, a couple of others used a small amount for the game. The issue is the one heavily utilised core is the bottleneck, leading to "bad" performance for many people.On my Ryzen 7 1700 I have 16 "cores" in task manager, one sits at close to 100% in WOW. But on the default task manager view it shows as about 8% CPU usage.If the work currently performed on that one core could be broken out across at least two, I would more consistently see 100+ FPS and not suffer massive FPS drops during raids.
I sense major problems at launch because of this change.I mean Overwatch recommends 6GB RAM and dont use at all 6GB more like a little above 4GB.
It's been great playing WoW for the past 11 years. I don't expect to be doing so anymore since I'll be in prison for robbing the local Wells Fargo bank (if they catch me) for the funds to buy the required computer.
20-30man raids will be laggier than ever on low graphics
First I want to say I agree that Warcraft is not optimized correctly; however, let’s admit most people are trying to play this game on systems that are in desperate need of an update. Like the poster above me. Playing wow for the last 11 years. Probably updated his Pc one time 6 years ago. I’m able to play the game just fine at 4K ultra settings( minus AA as it’s not needed at that resolution). I take a hit in raids and questing I still get 60+ FPS. My specs are i7-3770k, 2X 256gb SSD, 32gb ram with a GTX 1080 GPU. I got top of the line hardware a few years back and just have to upgrade my GPU as needed. I’m still hoping they updated their system engine to take advantage of current hardware. Guess we will all find out in a short 8 months.
Curious why you need a DVD drive when you can just download the installer from the site and upgrade to BFA.
Woo, my desktop just made the cutoff for Recommended Settings!AMD FX-8350 CPURX 480 GPU8GB RAM250GB SSD
Will my i5 4460 be good?
So will they finally drop support for 32bits windows?
If your computer is below reqs now, around how much would it cost to get most of this? or would it be better to get a new computer all together?
My laptop recently crashed and have had it for 4 years so since BfA is around the corner looking to buy or build a pc to run it on ultra, hopefully! I'm wanting to spend around 1600-2000 any help appreciated!
There is more than one type of cpu in the i7-4770 range and the weakest of them, the i7-4770TE is actually less powerful than the FX-8310, https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html In Blizzards recommended system requirements they have to cover the whole range of 4770's because otherwise they could be sued by those with the weaker models in a given range.The base i7-4770 is only about 25-30% more powerful than the FX-8310 too, it's the far more expensive i7-4770k that is around 50% more powerful...but that's beyond the point. The point is that the weakest 4770 and the 8310 are comparable in performance in software that is optimized for more than 1 or 2 cpu cores. Blame intels overly convoluted cpu naming convention and the backwards legal systems if you don't like the facts.
my computer specs are AMD 7500 Radeon R7 , 8GB ram will my computer be able to handle BFA?
Hey guys,I have a mid 2014 MacBook Pro withProcessor 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5RAM - 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3HD - 128 GB Flash StorageGraphics - Intel Iris 1536 MBDoes this meet the Minimum Requirements?Thanks!
