wot sys 

World of Tanks is a client-based massively multiplayer real-time online game in the genre of an arcade tank simulator in the historical setting of World War II, developed by the Belarusian studio Wargaming.net. The developers position the game as an MMO action game with elements of a role-playing game, shooter and strategy. The concept of "World of Tanks" is based on team tank battles in PvP mode.   

Update 9.9 for World of Tanks was released under the slogan: “Quality is the main thing!” Steel Hunt is a new version of the Supremacy game event. 14 models have been redesigned in a new visual quality: Type 62, AMX 50 100, FCM 50 t, Churchill VII, Caernarvon, Conqueror, Panther/M10, VK 36.01 (H), M6A2E1, T23E3, M46 Patton, T110E3, T110E4, T-62A . Significant overall optimization of the 3D engine.

THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects.

Supported OS and graphics API

World of Tanks is supported by major Windows operating systems, which include XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Other operating systems are not currently supported by the developers and will not receive support. 

 wot

The priority and main graphics API for World of Tanks is  DirectX 9  

Game engine 

The game is based on the BigWorld game engine, which was developed by Wargaming for use in its own products.

We did not find more detailed information about the game engine, except for the above data ...  

 

Advanced game settings

 

The graphical menu in World of Tanks hasn't changed much since version 9.0. As before, we have the main menu for changing graphics settings with an advanced settings sub-item, where we can flexibly manipulate graphics settings depending on system performance.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum, medium and maximum graphics quality settings. 

Various quality modes
low 1 sr 1 max 1
low 2 sr 2 max 2

As we can see, the quality of the picture  changes significantly between different settings, and at the maximum settings World of Tanks is incredibly beautiful.

Comparison of FullHD and 4K 
hd 1 4k1
hd 2 4k2

В 4К World of Tanksвыглядит намного красивее и сам игровой процесс кажется намного реалистичнее за счёт более высокой детализации. Так же стоит отметить, что игровой интерфейс теперь масштабируется относительно разрешения.

Теперь вместо одного FXAA нам доступны ещё два режима сглаживания TSSAA.

Общее визульное оформление и игровая физика

World of Tanks 9.9 по сути являет собой продолжение наработок 9-й версии проекта. Каких-либо значим нововведений кроме эффектов постобработки и нового режима сглаживания не наблюдается. Так же стоит отметить что графика была немного упрощена - очень заметно что дальность прорисовки травы невелика и прорисовывывается она во время движения буквально "на глазах".

Тест GPU

Все видеокарты тестировались на максимальном качестве графики программой MSI Afterburner. Целью теста является определить, как ведут себя видеокарты от различных производителей при одинаковых условиях. За показатель производительности брался средний и минимальный FPS. Ниже приведено видео тестового отрезка:    

Наши видеокарты тестировались при разрешениях 1920х1080, 2560х1600 и 3840х2160 при максимальных настройках качества графики, допустимых World of Tanks версии 9.9. AMD CrossFireX на данный момент не поддерживаются игрой.  SLI так же работает не без проблем - мерцание тестур времена просто "дикое", поэтому его производительность нужно считать лишь теоретической, нежели полезной.

It is also worth noting that in our further testing Windows 10 will be used. And in this test there will be a debut comparison of processors in  Windows 10 RTM Escrow and  Windows 8.1 . The processor part was taken as a comparative basis, since the performance in the graphics component did not change.

With these settings, video cards of the Radeon HD 7970 or GeForce GTX 680 level showed an acceptable FPS. GeForce GTX 980 and higher solutions will be the best solutions.

 

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 were taken as an indicator at resolutions of  1920x1080 and 2560x1600 with various anti-aliasing settings.

Testing at maximum memory GPU quality settings

wot vram 

The recommended amount of video memory usage for a resolution of 1920x1200 will be 1024 MB of video memory, for a resolution of 2560x1600 - 1536 MB of video memory and for a resolution of 3840x2160 about 2048 MB of video memory. 

CPU test

worldoftanks 2015 07 17 16 11 06 676 

We tested processor dependence on 16 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 CPU performance in the game is sufficient for all models. It is worth noting that with the transition to Windows 10, AMD's performance increased slightly, and Intel, on the contrary, fell slightly.

World of Tanks 9.9 is capable of supporting up to 3 computational threads, but barely uses only 4 computational cores. Comparison of the download in Windows 10 RTM Escrow and Windows 8.1 was not taken, as it is almost identical.

RAM test

The test was carried out on the base configuration Core i 7 5960X @ 4.6 GHz with 16GB DDR4 2400 MGz pre-installed memory. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various test benches without running extraneous applications (browsers, etc.).

Testing the game's RAM consumption at various quality settings 

wot ram 

As we can see, at various quality settings, the amount of RAM consumed in World of Tanks 9.9 is at the level of 650-750 megabytes.

Testing system RAM consumption  

wot ram 2 

With a system with 6 gigabytes, World of Tanks 9.9 consumes about 2.3 gigabytes of RAM. In the presence of a system with 8 gigabytes, the RAM consumption of all RAM was 2.5 gigabytes. With a 16 GB system, total memory consumption was almost 2.7 GB. And with 32 gigabytes of RAM, the system consumes 3.5  gigabytes of RAM.
