What graphics card would be necessary to run WoWs on max graphics settings?   Would the NVIDIA GTX970M be enough?  (Likely to be running with 16GB of RAM, i7-6700 CPU, 256 GB SSD, if that information helps).

Try experimenting & test it during co-op battle. Because the mobile/laptop version of branded graphic card chip are questionable.

Using a GTX 750, able to run on max setting with frame rate 50-60. I'm using a desktop. Y

 

I'm using GTX 750ti but with an i3 cpu. i get 50-60 fps too, but i get stutter sometimes because of the old processor :P

Yup same here :P 5 year old i3 too. But hey, the graphics still look good. I changed my graphics card for the sake of WOWs :)

Have a 960M on my notebook. Runs at 60fps everything maxed out at 1080p..in CPU's case an i5 (even a dual core one) is more than enough.

GTX970M? Mobile graphics may require about 2GB to run at max graphics. I'm currently running i7 3615QM at 2.3GHz, 8GB DDR3 RAM, GT650M 1GB on a macbook pro. Running medium graphics around 20-50fps. Playable by my standards, but if you need 60fps then by my specs above I'll need to drop it down to low.

The bottleneck is usually the CPU instead of the graphics for this game (I don't really know why). It eats intense amounts of CPU but barely stresses my GFX card.

GTX750Ti is the best choice :trollface:

 

I can attest to this. I get 60FPS with all settings maxed out with Intel i5-3570k, GTX 750Ti and 12GB DDR3-1600. I also have a VM, 3 separate browsers w/ 12+ tabs each and VS2015 in the background.

hd 4670 + old crappy amd x3 + 4gb ram = 20-30 fps medium

hd 7750+ old crappy amd x2 + 4gb ram = 20-30 fps medium

intel 5020u + onboard hd 5500 + 4gb ram = 20-30 fps medium

 

game needs a fast cpu and and at least 8gb of ram. 4gb runs fine until there's a lot of smoke and fires framerates drop and game stutters.

 

anyone here using 920m, 930m or 940m i3 laptop? can you max out the settings? planning to get a 940m laptop thanks

​I have the GTX960 and she sits on 59fps on full settings, I5 6500, 16gb ram on a SSB drive and have no issues at all with it. The only time I do have an issue is when I get lag from ping issues. My normal ping is generally around 100-120..

My current setup is a GTX980ti, i5-4590 with 16Gb RAM and 256Gb SSD. Getting 40-60 fps with max settings. FYI, was previously running this with a GTX750ti too and was getting about the same fps on about the same settings. One thing I have noticed is that the fps tend to be higher when playing Coop compared to Random battles. This leads me to believe that having a better CPU may help. I monitored my i5-4590's utilization and have found it averaging under 40% when playing but with occasional spikes to 100%. Having a SSD definitely helps with the speed of loading compared to conventional HDD.

I run a 560 TI at 60 FPS most setting high etc so you don't need much

 

 

I'm similar to you,I am using a GTX 580 running at 1920 x 1200 with i7 2700k CPU,with max setting except post processing ( personal preference ) and getting max framerate.It seems to mainly want CPU anyway.

I run in Full HD and all settings to max with the following config:

I7-2600k (no-oc)

12 GB DDR3

GTX 950 2GB oc

SATA3 SSD 400GB

 

I achieve an average of 58-62 fps and have limited lag in really really rare occasion, mostly when situation is very confuse with explosions everywhere at short range ;)

OP you need to tell us what resolution you want to play at.  A potato can run at max settings 640x480 but 4K res or something is a different story, that goes for most of the replies here too.  No good telling the OP what cpu/gfx/fps you have if you do not say the resolution.
