    Thanks for the link

    I'm really happy that low settings still looks really good. Sometimes a game can look fantastic on high but just plain ugly on low (rift imo) but it still looks great and 'clear' (for lack of a better word).

    I think I'll put options like AA to low (seem to have the biggest hit for me) but particle and distance details up.

    Wow even the low settings look really good, still makes me want to upgrade from my crappy dual core computer. Thanks for this, very nice.

    Things glaringly missing at first glimpse:

    1. FSAA
    2. FOV adjustment

    Brownie points for stereoscopic rendering. 3D glasses aren't my thing, but it's always good to support emerging new tech.

    Wow, it still looks surprisingly good on low settings. I wonder at what setting I will be able to play the game at once its optimized.

    May also note that they are not playing in 1080p there, its set to 1600 something, so it will look even better.

    1680x1050 is one of the most common resolutions found in modern PC monitors in sub-23 inch range. It's a true 16:10 (rather then narrow "tank viewport" of 16:9). It's higher resolution "brother" would be 1920x1200.

    Which youtube scaled down. Quality (besides losing res) usually only gets destroyed when the aspect ratio is lost, which in this case that did happen.

    So if any case, the quality is worse.

    It could be 2080p for all we know and it will still look like its being recorded in 720p, because of youtube.

    Its amazing how beautiful the game still looks on the lowest settings, and how well it performed on the highest settings during all that WvW action. And this is the performance un-optimized!!!!!

    Looking good on low settings is not a good thing, because it doesn't make a huge difference in performance. It should look bad, because at that point you're trying to get performance over graphics.

    I am disappointed with the performance, the computer he used is well worth over $700 without peripherals and hardrives and it is noticeably struggling even on the lowest settings.
