You need the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 to play World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth in 1080p at 60 fps
Although World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is not going to bring any major changes in the graphics department, NVIDA recommends a GeForce GTX 1060 to fully enjoy the game in high detail and 60 frames per second at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 are required to properly run the game at 2,560 x 1,440 and 3,840 x 2,160.
Earlier today, I got a new driver update from NVIDIA. The interesting part is that the new driver — officially released yesterday and bearing the version number 398.92 — came with a few details regarding the video cards needed to run World of Warcraft's upcoming seventh expansion pack at 60 frames per second while using the High detail level.
According to NVIDIA, World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth needs the following hardware setups — or better — to run at 60 frames per second:
In all the cases mentioned above, the recommended operating system is — obviously — Microsoft Windows x64. NVIDIA's benchmarks achieved average frame rates of 65 fps for the first two resolutions and hardware setups mentioned above, while the last configuration managed to score a perfect 60 fps result with a minimum of 51 fps.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is on its way and will arrive on August 14 as previously announced. The latest GeForce Game Ready driver also comes with optimizations for Monster Hunter: World.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
