Can someone who plays wow at 4k and has a 3080 test ray tracing performance? It needs windows 2004 update and i haven't updated since my internet is really slow until i move next month so i cant really download the windows updates, i play with every single setting maxed out and at 1000% resolution scale, if you don't have a 4k monitor then at 1080p you can set resolution scale to 200% for it to render it at 4k

    I think it depends on your CPU.. I'm using a Ryzen 3900X, and while I don't have my 3080 yet, the 2070 Super I am using, with all the settings maxed and ray tracing at max setting, I get over 85fps in a lot of areas outside of the cities and mid 50s-60s in cities and newer areas at 1080p with resolution scale maxed out at 200%.
     
    Unless there is some limitation in the WoW engine, I'd be willing to bet the lows on the 3080 will probably be close to 100fps at the same settings, if not more.  But to be honest, it doesn't really look much different. I'm disappointed they don't use RT for reflections. The shadows are just way too subtle, so you may find yourself just turning it back off.

    The performance in Boralus is a disaster. Everything on Max with a Ryzen 3900X, an RTX 3080 XC3 Ultra in 4K and many players around 40-50FPS. In Zuldazar about 65-70 FPS when quests.

    yeah i wonder if they are not using rt cores at all since wow ray tracing uses the windows ray tracing not nvidia tech

    and cpu wise, i was hoping the drop wasn't gonna be much and it isnt, like in control or other rt games turning rt on at 4k takes 3080 from 100 to like 35 fps on average, and wow isnt really cpu bound anyways lol, i do wonder if framerate will drop even more in shadowlands areas where graphics might be better, i doubt you could be cpu bottlenecked at 4k unless you are using some single or dual core, toms hardware did testing at 4k with new gpus compared to a few gens of intel processors and even 3rd gen i7 from 2013 was within a few fps of brand new i9 10900k, i have 4690k at 4.6 and when i compare my numbers to reviews for 3080 im very close to their numbers and no games get my cpu 100% at 4k since the gpu is sitting at 100% the whole time

    Actual RT for WoW is useless... it is only for Shadow, it is not perfect and it decreases sooo much the FPS...
    We can bypass RT for the moment and Wait that Blizzard enhances it really :)

    signed! Tested yesterday in the beta (new maps). Significant fps drop with rt high.

    sadly thats every game right now with current rt cores, i bought 2080super in july and returned it a week later because rt performance was so bad i had to play at 1080p30 in games that were 4k60 without rt, and its about same right now, unless you use dlss which is not for me and not many games have it now, you are doing 4k30 at best with rt on, 4k60 wont be happening till 4080 when we get new rt cores

    I tested it in Dalaran and was getting like 70-90fps fluctuating on a 3090. But GPU usage was low.  It wasn't maxed out.  Disabling it, GPU usage went back to 100% and FPS to like 120-140.  There's an issue with RT in that game for sure.  And honestly...totally not worth any performance hit anyway.  The demo videos of them showing off RT shadows was just embarrassing.   Almost no visible difference.  Haha.

    Need to spamtribute 100 posts for Elite status to be able to get a KingPin because Jacob. My apologies in advance.

    I'm running in DX12. I read that I might have to edit the .ini file because WoW still thinks I have a non-ray tracing card.
