Default Re: Everquest 2 high end system verses WoW high end system..

To make matters worse we've hit somewhat of a plateu in Single Core processor development. It's not going to be possible to pick up a CPU that's twice as fast every year like it was when EQ1 came out. I highly Doubt the dev's on EQ2 will take advantage of Dual core machines. And single processor performance aint gonna go up a whole lot this year. This means you are effectivly "Stuck" at your current level of performance for a long time. I hope you enjoy it and get cozy cause you arnt going to see any huge increase in performance Via hardware, as the only hardware that's still rapidly improving is Video card tech, the next Nvidia and ATi gpu's are suposed to have 24 pipes, of course EQ2 won't take advantage of it and you'll get like 2% performance upgrade for your 500 bucks because the games Geometry engine or some other facet dosent offload like it should.

Regards,
Mike
