WAR's minimum system requirements have been stated by Mythic Entertainment in the WAR Herald - Source.

Other InformationEdit

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slowly. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly. Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants will have low settings selected, but should run satisfactorily.

Please note that attempting to play the game using video hardware that isn’t listed above may result in reduced performance, graphical issues or cause the game to not run at all.

The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista.

Chipsets not in the official support list, but proven to workEdit

  • GeForce FX 5500 Series works, however it runs a little slow even on the fastest framerate graphics mode.
  • GeForce 7300 Go runs WAR well in the fastest framerate graphics mode
  • GeForce 8600M GT with 512 VRAM built into the Macbook Pro runs WAR well in the high quality graphics mode
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT built in to late 2007 24" imac runs well at high quality.
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT
  • ATI Radeon HD 3450
  • ATI Radeon HD 3200 (mobile), runs 30-40 FPS on lower settings.
  • ATI Radeon 4200 with 1919mb hypermemory runs well on low-medium settings.
  • ATI Radeon HD5770 runs well on high quality, on macpro
