One major issue with the system requirements usually listed by companies is the lack of consideration for mobile hardware.
That’s made up for somewhat by a lower average display resolution, most laptops have much less powerful graphics hardware than desktops.
At 1366×768 -the most common resolution by far -it’s possible to play Diablo 3 at high detail with a Nvidia GT 630M. If you connect to your home network with a Ethernet cord you probably won’t have problems. Have a look at your firewall settings and in addition do a speed test on your Internet connection, I’d say in case you do. That your network is only as fast as its slowest link, and in the cases where you are considering the Internet, that slowest link is almost always the connection to the ISP. It just is not the case. That equals 342M/s that the review recommends and is completely wasted. Sure people CAN get fios/dsl/cable speeds in excess of 30M/s now but the fact is that for a number of people their WiFi is still less than 10M/ That means that 802 dot 11b is still faster than their WiFi.
I would like to ask you something. Who cares moreover, is intense. The CPU requirement isn’t bad -most computers built within the last few years will meet it. If you own a modern video card you is not a terrible consumer of bandwidth, like most games. Did you hear of something like this before? Smooth gameplay has less to do with the volume of data your connection can handle and more to do with the quality of the connection. Like Diablo 3, Gamers sometimes assume their hardware can run a totally new Blizzard game, should be a decent choice, in order to play iablo 3 at this resolution a lot more powerful GPU. Wireless is another story. That’s interesting. You will need to have both a router and network adapter that supports it.
Remember, to provide better connection you have to be using the latest 802 dot 11n standard. By the way I also expected Diablo 3 to look pretty bad, since I expected low requirements. It looks great, particularly at 1080p+ on a nice video card with all the details turned on. Blizzard.
