There is also the Ray Tracing rendering technique in the latest Shadowlands expansion. To play the game at its best, we recommend the following system requirements.

    World of Warcraft Shadowlands requires an Intel Core i5-3450 or
    AMD FX™ 8300
    , and the system information file shows an Intel Core i7-9750H. Meaning it meets (and exceeds) the minimum system requirements. For more info about CPU performances and the benchmarks, check out this website so you can compare your CPU with the required one.
    The same goes for the amount of system memory available. The system info shows 15.8 GB, which is well above the minimum of 4GB.

    Check your video card(s) whether it meets the minimum requirements.
    World of Warcraft requires at least an nVidia NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, AMD Radeon RX 560 or Intel UHD 630, so an Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 meets and exceeds the minimum system requirements. If your laptop or a PC has only one GPU, only one would be listed.
