Check Your Graphics Card

Check Your Graphics Card - EVE Online -

In a new blog post on the official EVE Online site, CCP Zulu fires a shot over the bow of players' graphics cards by announcing that ShaderModel 3.0 support will be required to play the game at some point in the first half of 2011. To help players assess whether or not their cards meet the standard, devs have created a small tool to run.

Why are we doing this?

To keep EVE vibrant and alive we publish two expansions every year. We rework art assets to bring them to and beyond the industry standard, we add new game play features, we refactor old systems and in general we keep evolving EVE and keep setting the bar higher for excellence. That means we need to also keep evaluating the platforms that can run the game client and we're now in a position where we need to move to ShaderModel 3.0 to make the next evolutionary step.

Not only is this needed for EVE to look amazing, it's needed for EVE to perform better.
