GPU performance in Guild Wars 2

Postposted on Thu Aug 23, 2012 2:01 pm

I was a great fan of Guild Wars 1 and spent a lot of time playing PvP. I am eagerly awaiting GW2 after a short taste of beta-testing, and I imagine it will be one of the best games of the year and probably the best MMO for several years to come. I fell upon a blog entry talking about performance under GW2 which I found quite interesting as it compares performance across different graphics cards. Might be interesting for those looking for an upgrade.

I played all through the betas and am looking forward to Saturday with tons of anticipation. Your link doesn't appear to work at the moment (maybe server load, who knows) however I will say that throughout the betas the devs repeatedly stated that the performance was not optimized for GPUs yet and should be a lot better come release time. The only time I felt any stutter with my 560ti at 1920 was during massive WvWvW type scenarios. Everything else looked wonderful and played smoothly.

edit: The link wouldn't work over https, removing the SSL causes my work filter to kick in :D
