Age of Conan: First PCGH graphics cards benchmarks
Yesterday Age of Conan was released and the servers are online. PCGH made a short test with three different graphics cards.
As we already said, we will deal with Age of Conan rather shortly. To get an impression of the game's hardware requirements we assembled a test system. We took a Core 2 Duo E6750 on a XFX motherboard with an Nforce 680i SLI chipset and 2 GiByte DDR2 800 memory and used three graphics cards for a little performance check. The Geforce 8800 GT, the Radeon HD 3870 and a Geforce 9800 GTX had a chance to show what they could do with Age of Conan. As graphics drivers we used the current default versions of the Catalyst 8.5 and the Geforce 175.16. The operating system we chose was Windows XP with Service Pack 1.
Installing the game felt as if it took all day long. After more than an hour the installation was complete. But now we had to download additional data - in fact we had to wait for more than half a Gigabyte to be placed on our hard drive. After that the game folder had passed the 25 GByte border - the official requirements call for 32 GByte of free disk space. Finally we could register and start the benchmarks.
