  1. I posted this on the NA forums a few days ago and forgot to post it here also. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/470166-actual-video-memory-required-for-playing-world-of-tanks/ I was curious about how much video memory was actually required to run World of Tanks. So, I fired up MSI afterburner, enabled logging, and ran a pair of replays through multiple video settings. What I found is that a GPU with 2 GB of video memory should be adequate for playing World of Tanks at 1920x1080 resolution. The maximum memory used by the GPU was about 1.5 GB. Some notes: Maximum in the pre set settings isn't actually maximum. You can still turn up one slider higher and also enable TSSAA-HQ under AA settings to get a "true maximum" setting. My custom settings are the settings that work best for me on my computer as a mix of FPS and image quality. The Cromwell replay was a tier 6 stronghold replay. The Type 59 replay was a tier 8 battle. Both replays were on different maps(Serene Coast and Windstorm). I ran the replays multiple times and got the same results for the MB of GPU memory used. The system used for this was a gaming laptop with an Intel i7 CPU and a GTX 680M GPU I used the latest WHQL driver from Nvidia. I didn't have an AMD GPU to test. I'd expect similar results based on tests of other games with Nvidia and AMD GPUs. The results are below: Replay Setting Resolution AA Max Memory MB Mods Cromwell My Custom 1920x1080 OFF 1042 No Type 59 My Custom 1920x1080 OFF 1350 No Cromwell Maximum 1920x1080 OFF 1106 No Type 59 Maximum 1920x1080 OFF 1432 No Cromwell True Maximum 1920x1080 TSSAA-HQ 1205 No Type 59 True Maximum 1920x1080 TSSAA-HQ 1534 No Cromwell High 1920x1080 OFF 787 No Type 59 High 1920x1080 OFF 923 No Cromwell Medium 1920x1080 OFF 752 No Type 59 Medium 1920x1080 OFF 879 No Cromwell My Custom 1920x1080 OFF 1042 No Apparently copying and pasting from Excel doesn't work as well as it use to. Here is a screenshot from the spreadsheet. What does this mean? If you play mostly World of Tanks and don't play above 1920x1080 resolution, you probably don't need more than 2 GB of video memory since the game doesn't use much more than 1.5 GB of video memory with all of the detail settings turned up. Other more modern games do use more than 2GB of video memory at 1920x1080. You have to consider that if you are getting a new GPU and play other games.
