AoC vs Video Cards

Posted Mon, Apr 28, 2008 by Morvelaira

Those get expensive!

Tobold takes the guess work out of graphics for us, with a rundown of WoW graphics vs. AoC graphics.

But once you compared various video cards and benchmarks and prices, you'll come out with a result like this: a $100 video card will run World of Warcraft perfectly, even at higher resolution and with lots of graphics details turned on. The same $100 video card will meet the minimum requirements for Age of Conan, but you'll have to tone down the graphics options. And that is with a $100 video card you buy today. If you bought a $100 video card in 2004 when WoW came out, that card will still run WoW at acceptable speed, but it won't run Age of Conan at all. AoC is not only three-and-a-half years younger than WoW, it also was designed with the idea of having stunning graphics. Gamers like me might enjoy it, but my video cards only last 2 years and are more expensive than $100.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.
