Optimized For Excellent Performance

With a GeForce GTX graphics card, your World of Warcraft experience will benefit from our years of optimizations, giving you even-faster performance. And in addition, users can enable HBAO+ shadowing, adding depth and detail to almost-all areas of the game’s massive world; DSR for higher-resolution gameplay; and Surround for immersive multi-monitor gaming.

In fact, such is the level of optimization, you can now play World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth’s demanding moments at 1920x1080, with High settings, at a fluid 60 frames per second, on a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. This’ll give you even better performance during quests and those moments you’re mining or fishing, and enough headroom for performance-intensive raids.

If you like World of Warcraft, you like stats, so here’s some: at 1920x1080, our benchmarking concluded with an average framerate of 65.4 on the GeForce GTX 1060, when paired with an i5-6600K. A minimum framerate of 53 was the lowest we saw, and the frametime plot was near-perfect, indicating performance was smooth and stable.

At 2560x1440, the GeForce GTX 1070 gave us a 65.6 FPS average, with a minimum of 52, and equally-smooth frametimes. And at 4K, it’s recommended that players step up to an i7 for a perfect 60 frames per second on a GeForce GTX 1080, with the occasional dip to 51 FPS.
