The PTR just came up, so it'll be a few weeks yet. Some random Tuesday in the next month or two.

True; from what I've seen, people have blindly shouted DX11 as if it's a game-changer. However, if they can put more weight on the GPU, it'll be worth it; the game could use any optimization it'll get.

For all your nay-saying, I actually agree with this one. The game needs a new engine... though obviously that won't happen for WoW; they're putting work into Titan...

WoW has had DX11 Support since the release of the expansion.

So that is going on 5 months now.

They beat crysis 2 before crysis 2 was even out.

It helps to read patch\\expansion notes.

Yep experimental DX11 support was in the cata patch, there were reports of 20-30% increase in fps from some people and i noticed an improvment when i played.

The DX11 update had nothing to do with graphic quality or new effects.

DX11 helps fix this because it offloads CPU workloads to the GPU. Increasing performance, because anything CPU's can do, a GPU can do it 10x faster. Why do you think people crack passwords using GPU power?

The fact that you said a new API with more features and better performance had nothing to do with graphics quality or new effects. It has everything to do with it!!

I agree to an extent, but at times there are hundreds of players visible in WoW, which makes it a very CPU intensive game, no matter how much you optimize it. My Q6600 is struggling @ max settings. Bottlenecked by HDD? I haven't encountered such problems, please elaborate.
