Check Your Graphics Card

Check Your Graphics Card - EVE Online -

The EVE Online blog has been updated with a reminder that support for graphics cards using Shader Model 2.0 will be discontinued on April 5th. In an interesting move to help players still utilizing this type of card, CCP is working with graphics card manufacturers to secure discounts for player upgrading.

We realize there is still a portion of the player base (we estimate around 9,000 users) that has Shader Model 2 cards. To try and ease the transition we are working on securing a discount deal with a graphics card vendor that we will announce in the next couple of weeks.

Please note that although we are discontinuing support of Shader Model 2 we will not actively block those cards from running the client. It is therefore possible that players with that hardware will be able to run EVE for some time afterward. We do, however, urge them to update their graphics cards as soon as possible.
