В первую очередь проект от серой массы отличает именно графическая составляющая - World of Tanks это яркий образец того, что может выйти из долгой и кропотливой работы. Детализация моделей танков просто потрясающая, локации огромны и разнообразны. Качество эффектов на очень высоком уровне, что позволяет в полной мере насладиться игровым процессом.

Не последнее место в игре занимает физика разрушений и хотя до воссоздания реализма ещё очень далеко, определённый шаги в эту сторону ведутся и нужно сказать они вполне успешны. Управление в полной мере адаптировано под ПК манипуляторы и не вызывает никаких неудобств.

Тест GPU

Все видеокарты тестировались на максимальном качестве графики программой FRAPS. Целью теста является определить, как ведут себя видеокарты от различных производителей при одинаковых условиях. За показатель производительности брался средний FPS. Тест для видеокарт проходил на тренировочной карте без соперников, ниже приведено видео тестового отрезка для видеокарт:  

Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1680x1050, 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 at the maximum graphics quality settings allowed by World of Tanks. The test was conducted in two modes - with FXAA disabled and FXAA high quality. Multi-chip configurations from AMD and NVIDIA are currently not supported by the game. As we wrote above, the test of video cards was carried out on a training map, since it turned out to be simply impossible to test World of Tanks with random generation of maps for battle.

VRAM test

memory GPU

Testing of the video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the  MSI Afterburner program. The results on top video cards from AMD and NVIDIA at resolutions of  1680x1050, 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 were taken as the indicator.

The optimal amount of video memory for World of Tanks is about 1024 MB, for ultra-high resolutions you will need about 1280 MB of video memory.

CPU test

 WorldOfTanks 2013_01_15_10_36_51_989

We tested processor dependence on 12 models of basic configurations that are relevant today. The test was carried out in those places where the value of the video card for the game is minimal and its load was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1920x1080 with maximum graphics quality settings. The test was carried out in the mode on a filled map.

World of Tanks processors 

World of Tanks can effectively use only two processor cores. A more advanced processor architecture and higher clock speeds will show greater efficiency.

RAM test

3930k

Testing of the RAM consumed by the game was carried out by monitoring directly through the Windows Task Manager. The test was conducted on the base configuration Core i 7 3930K@4.8 GHz with 8GB DDR3 2400 MGz pre-installed memory.

Testing at various quality settings

 World of Tanks ram

As we can see, at various quality settings, the amount of RAM consumed in World of Tanks is at the level of 550-750 megabytes. 

From the above test, we can conclude that for optimal performance in the game you need a good mid-range graphics card and a powerful dual-core processor of the latest architecture of the Core i family. Our new utility GameGPU CreatoR will help you determine the configuration for World of Tanks in the most optimal way .
