World of Warcraft v3.2.2 Patch

Blizzard has issued a new patch for World of Warcraft, bringing this popular MMORPG to v3.2.2.

ATI Eyefinity runs WoW at 7680 x 3200

A few days ago, AMD demo'd WoW running seamlessly on six Dell 30" monitors, 7680x3200 resolution, at playable frame rates from a single Eyefinity card. Dirt 2 was also running, full DX11, again at playable frame rates, from the same card. Left4Dead stuttered a bit here and there, but was very playable. At 7K+ resolution from one card, that is not bad at all.

The take home message is that Eyefinity does one thing that no one else can, simulate a single monitor on multiple displays transparently to Windows. It should just work, and from what we saw, it does. This simple thing breaks through a fundamental brick wall for GPU adoption, limited resolution monitors.

World of Warcraft Launches Paid Faction Changes
