Ah, it's as I expected. I can only run it on the fastest setting, so it's actually worse graphics than 2.7. ): Perhaps someday I'll be able to afford a decent gaming computer. The mechanics are still very fun to experience.

I have a Geforce 930m which, if it were on that list- would be soo low LOL
However if i remember correctly (its been awhile since playing) it runs WQ 2.7 on high with grass n stuff around 40 fps maybe 50? either way its totally playable and great on that setting and it runs a lot of the games i play decently on a good setting. I'm crossing my fingers i can play the game at a bearable fps rate on at least mid-high settings. I'm all about beautiful immersive graphics and its one of the top things im looking forward to in this game!
Im seriously considering getting a new laptop with a better GPU haha

Not sure. I have the 960 and it can run WolfQuest 3 on Good optimally.

My graphics card is Radeon HD 8450 G. I have had this laptop for 5 years and it has some screen damage but it's the only computer I have. I don't mind playing on a lower setting, I just want to be able to play the game at a reasonable framerate.
The Radeon HD 8450 G came out in 2013 and it's an integrated card, so you might have some trouble.

I have laptop with mobile 1050 and game goes smooth on Good settings. But the only problem that worries me is quiet frequent lagging caused by loading of distant forest I assume

You mean NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050? I'd think you'd be able to run the game smoothly on "Beautiful" at least, but how smooth (FPS) are we talking on "Good"?

Yes, it's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050. At "Good" I have 50-60 fps, if I choose "Beautiful" setting fps drops to 30 fps. But the thing disturb my gameplay the most is hitches when the world is loading new area. I was in situation when I am fighting a wolf at the spot where I guess was a border of two areas and running around this place caused game to lag because of loading one or another area. Hope this is not my graphic card issue and in future patches it will be fixed

There's definitely lag when moving from one area to another. That seems to affect almost all graphics card tbh, I get hit with it with my 1070Ti that can normally hit 60+ on the highest graphics settings. I know the team is working hard to figure out further optimizations, so hopefully this will get progressively better as they figure out additional ways to optimize. You could try playing with settings, maybe? Turn everything down and see if it's better, and then start turning settings back up one by one to figure out which settings are causing the most lag.

my laptop is a hp stream with only 2 GB of ram so it cant even run the game. I'm gonna trade it in for a better laptop.

do you guys have any reccomendations for cheap laptops that can run a game like WQ3?

What's the recommended range of graphics cards to play the game at the higher graphics quality settings? I'm planning on getting a new laptop soon since mine is damaged, and I'm trying to figure out what kind of graphics card I should be going for.

Here is where you can view the ratings of common graphics cards:

It'll take a lot longer to look through, but this page rates more graphics cards:
