Gaming Cards World of Warcraft wasn't very demanding on GPUs when it first released and WoTLK Gold isn't changing much with the most recent update. A majority of GPU manufactured in the past two years will be able to run the game flawlessly, even at extremely high resolutions, with top quality. Older models, such as those like the GeForce 6800, will run perfectly if you compromise image quality settings. The results that are displayed on high on the chart looks suspiciously like a VSync cap However, we double checked to confirm that V-Sync wasn't disabled. It seems like it is the processor Intel QX9770 that will become the bottleneck after you go up to level GeForce GTX 260 or Radeon HD 4870 level and beyond.
CPU The floundering city Dalaran and its large population, is the ideal CPU place to test the CPU. The most demanding component of any game with a massive multiplayer is typically the city. Our frame rates fell by half when we entered Dalaran. It was still enjoyable even with our slow Pentium 4. It didn't appear to improve performance, however faster clock speeds helped improve performance.
Memory World of Warcraft requires 1GB of RAM on Windows Vista, and the game is running well on the recommended specifications. The addition of a gigabyte of RAM over it didn't improve performance or loading times. The game would stop frequently when we tried dropping the memory to 512MB. We'd never suggest running Windows Vista with only 512MB of memory.
Activision Blizzard and parent company Vivendi have made an appeal in the emergency of the decision of last week's court that WoTLK Classic Gold stopped the game's publisher's attempts to segregate it from Vivendi in an $8.2 billion agreement, according to the documents that were obtained from The Wall Street Journal.
