NWN2 web site FAQsEdit

1. Will Neverwinter Nights 2 support NVIDIA’s SLI feature?

Yes, if you have two video cards that make use of SLI, Neverwinter Nights 2 will support them.

2. Does Neverwinter Nights 2 support AMD 64-bit processors?

Yes, we’re planning to fully support AMD 64-bit processors running Windows XP; however, the game does not support Windows XP x64 edition.

3. Will Neverwinter Nights 2 make use of dual core CPU’s?

The Neverwinter Nights 2 Toolset is a multithreaded application; as a result, it will utilize the benefits of dual-core processors from both AMD and Intel.

4. Does Neverwinter Nights 2 still use the Aurora graphics engine?

Neverwinter Nights 2’s graphics engine has been replaced by the next-generation Electron engine, which supports advanced graphical features like fully dynamic lighting, normal mapping, specular mapping, shadow maps, and more.

5. Will Neverwinter Nights 2 make use of advanced features of newer video cards?

Yes -- The game fully supports Shader Model 2.0 and 3.0 cards (such as the NVIDIA GeForce 6 and 7 series and the ATI Radeon X1800) to achieve stunning visual effects at a much higher framerate than possible on older video cards.
The game requires at least a DirectX 9.0c compatible video card that supports at least Shader Model 2.0.

Pre-release notesEdit

  • Obsidian has stated that the "game runs great and looks great on all of our supported [video] cards, regardless of vendor. I'd look more to the performance features of the GPU than to the vendor when making my decision to upgrade." [1] Also, the "visual fidelity on either of the major vendors is pretty much equal. I attribute that to the fact that we've written the rendering engine to the DX9 spec. and not tried to get out there crazy with vendor specific features." [2]
  • The 3 Aug 2006 beta test announcement repeated the above system requirements. [3]
