For those wondering how their current builds might stand up to the current requirements in ARR, feel free to share your experiences in Gridania / Old Gridania performance wise. **DO NOT REFERENCE ANYTHING OUTSIDE THE GATES** I propose a format of Specs/How your benchmark scored/and how you felt your experience was in Gridania. Here's what I'm using:
http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/ - A site that provides video card comparison charts for performance.
ATI Radeon 6950
8 GB lower latency memory
200 GB Corsair Force 3 SSD
Windows 7 Professional
Benchmark Setting: Maximum
Benchmark Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Benchmark Score: 5587
Gridania Setting: Maximum
Gridania Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Experience was very fast. Shadows were gorgeous, the world really felt alive. I had no slowdown or real loading issues moving between Old Gridania and New Gridania. The Aethercyte crystal in town was gorgeous, and the lighting effects depending on the time of day/night were pretty impressive. If you have specs similar to mine, I would expect your experience to be quite pleasant performance-wise.
