For you graphic whores out there, just avoid Blizzard titles all together if all you want is fancy graphics for your tri SLI 680 rigs. Go watch Crysis 3 videos instead.

Do we get to keep our progression from the beta? or we start at scratch once the game hits market?

Start from scratch. All beta achievements as well as characters will be wiped.

Beta seems to be good for getting to know what class you wanna play when launch comes around. Gives you a feel for how they play. smile.gif

Okay, I just want to provide some actual, physical evidence here to support my earlier claim that the graphical resources being claimed by this game are just way out of line.

I'm not going to p*** and moan too much about the graphics not being that good, because heck, I still fire up Dungeon Siege 2 from time to time, as well as TQ, and those are still fun. Graphics are not *that* important for a game like this. You guys are right about that.

However, the assertion that the graphics are not that great of quality just so that 'everyone can run this game' ... just don't hold up in my book. To me, it looks like there's something seriously amiss in terms of how hard this game is to run. It is, in fact, WAAAAAAY too hard to run for how it looks.

Consider the following screenies, run on my SLI 470's at my sig clocks. Note that D3 is maxed out, with AO forced through the driver. Take a gander at the scene that requires 52% of EACH of two 470's at 700c. Bear in mind, the only thing moving in this scene a bit of foggy mist over it ... none of the (scant) trees are waving in the breeze or anything like that. How this looks is almost exactly how it looks when you're playing, trust me.

IOW, unless the SLI profile is way screwed up, one 470 wouldn't hold this scene at 60fps. I know this from 1.5 years of toying w/my cards. Someone please tell me how this scene could max out a GTX470, when it looks like this? To me it looks like it could run on a 7800GT and have resources to spare ... I'm not even kidding.

375

Now compare to this scene from C2 ... note that it requires only 66% of GPU usage (or one might say, about 26% more gfx resources). This is in DX11, Ultra everything except shaders and pp are on Extreme, with tessellation, high-res textures, etc.

375

I mean, I know some of y'all are tired of this game's visuals getting bashed, but trust me, nobody has been looking forward to this game more than me, alright smile.gif

I'm just saying that something is very wrong with the way this beta uses gpu resources, because it should NOT take 52% of each of my two cards to run that scene. Not even close. I don't care that much if it doesn't look cutting-edge, but it should not be heating up my room like it does just to look like this wink.gif

locking beta at normal difficulty is wrong:( i felt like i'm falling asleep playing it.... need nightmare difficulty for this game to be enjoyable IMO.

I tried the demon hunter first, and it was OK. The 2nd character I have tried is the monk and I enjoyed it a bit more smile.gif I think that will be my starting class wink.gif

Like the wizard quite a bit, will be really interesting when I unlock more runes. About level 6/7 now and I think the graphics are pretty decent. Glad I gave it a try, going to be a seriously fun game.
