The "funny" thing is I actually play on desktop and the only reason I use integrated graphics is because my GPU died a bit over a month ago, which is why I know it's not just the CPU that's an issue. I was able to play EoD just fine up until my card died and only after did EoD start causing such issues (that I noticed anyway—I wasn't actively monitoring before it died) even though my integrated graphics actually have much more memory than my old GPU (2GB vs 8GB). If it were purely CPU related—or any other component—I would have expected there to be issues from the start, but as they only happened when my GPU died, I can only conclude it's either a flaw with how the game pulls info from the GPU or a GPU-CPU hybrid issue as integrated graphics do put more load on the CPU. It also means if I met the minimum specs before I should still meet them now, but I don't even though my integrated graphics are listed as the minimum requirement. If I didn't meet the base requirement I wouldn't complain, but I do. So either Anet lied about base requirements, "minimum specs" is being treated like a technicality in that technically the game will load even if you can't do much, or there's a serious issue (e.g. memory leak) that higher specs can compensate for but get the more obvious faster the fewer resources you have to spare. yeah as someone else pointed out your mobo has a 1200 socket, so the 2.9Ghz is the base and not the max setting of your CPU. But you really need to replace your GFX card as soon as you're able to hehe. Personally I have an i7 11700K CPU that starts at 3.6 Ghz base. They tend to make a low base and a high base and for gaming I feel that the higher base is better somehow. The cards with the lower base also use less power but I think they might not manage the CPU load of an MMO than the ones with the higher base. Just my opinion there. But yeah, Anet posting different requirements on different places is really not a good moment for them, let's say. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
