Now that Windows 8 has been released, at least in upgrade form, I just want to see how everyone else is doing with WoW on this new OS.
I myself upgraded my Windows 7 pro x64 to Windows 8 Pro x64 in Friday. There were a few issues with some software and hardware. On the whole, though, the upgrade went surprisingly well. No major errors or BSoD.
WoW itself seem to work alright. However, I have noticed a small amount of graphic jerkiness. This jerkiness seems to occur every 5 seconds or so, or at least at fairly constant intervals. This jerkiness is more a very slight hiccup or jump in the graphics and is barely noticeable, really. I know that it's not my systems hardware that is the cause of this as I never noticed this when running Windows 7 x64. Just in case though, I lowered the screen resolution for the game. This made no difference at all. My native resolution is 1680x1050. I lowered the ingame resolution to 1440x900. FYI, my system specs are below.
It does not seem to have any relevance to the level of action taking place. It occurs at the same interval and to the same level whether I am just walking around a camp or taking part in a full-on Dungeon battle.
Anyone else noticed any oddities like this after their upgrade?
WoW is up to date and so is the OS and all drivers, etc.
