Graphics Card Support

As with all of our previous expansions, Warlrods of Draenor has seen improvements made to World of Warcraft’s graphics. While these improvements to our game’s engine are vital to keeping pace in a competitive marketplace, it also means that some video cards which were barely able to play the game during the Mists of Pandaria expansion will no longer be able to play World of Warcraft.

The best way to check if your current video card is capable of playing World of Warcraft is to check this article, which contains a list of all supported and non supported video cards.

What can you do if your video card is no longer able to play World of Warcraft?

- Desktop: If your computer is a desktop then you may be able to upgrade the video card. This is particularly likely if your computer only has a built-in (onboard) video chip such as an Intel Series 4. Many online resources exist to help with choosing a new video card, including our tech forum regulars.

- Laptop: Unfortunately, aside from a handful of specialized “high-end” laptops, the video card in laptops cannot be upgraded. If your laptop is no longer able to play World of Warcraft now Warlrods of Draenor has launched you will have to look at obtaining a newer computer.
