Blizzard has revealed that Heroes of the Storm is now the name of its upcoming MOBA, formerly known as Blizzard All-Stars.The publisher has released a new site and a teaser animation for the game, showing characters from WarCraft, StarCraft, and Diablo.It seems that the Blizzard All-Stars name isn't sticking around, though. You can now call it Heroes of the Storm.

While most of us were enjoying Heroes of the Storm Alpha test, a China Computer testing site ZOL was busy trying to push the game's graphics to its limit and testing what GPU and CPU are good to play the game at max settings at 1920*1080 and 2560*1600.


2560*1600 Max Setting


1920*1080 Max Setting

From the two screenshots above, there is no any difference between two kinds of resolutions, while you can have more details when you watch the maximized one. In this test, we found that there is a few difference between 1920*1080 and 2560*1600 and fps would shrink down dramatically when playing heavy battles.

There is the hardware list:

CPU Intel Core i7 - 3930X
  6 cores / 12 Threads / 3.3GHz / 15 MB L3
Clooer Antec H500
  Solo Fan
Memory ADATA XPG DDR3-1600 4GB*4
  (SPD: 9-9-9-24-1T)
Mother Board GIGABYTE GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI
  (Intel X79 Chipset)
HDD Seagate Barracuda 1TB
  (1TB / 7200RPM / 32MB / SATA3)
Power Antec HCP-750
  80Plus Gold / 750W
Monitor Dell Ultra Sharp 3008WFP
  30' LCD / 2560*1600


There is the software list:

System Win7 Ultimate RTM
  (64 bit / Version: 7601)
Drive Intel Chipset Device Software
  Solo Fan
AMD Drive AMD Catalyst
  (Beta / Version:13.12)
Nvidia Drive NVIDIA Forceware
  (WHQL / Version: 334.89)
Environment Win7 Ultimate RTM
  (2560*1600 / 32bit / 60Hz)

In this test, we respectively made Heroes of the Strom running under Nvidia and AMD and take three-minute-average-laning fps as our results. As this version didn’t offer AA settings, all of the tests were recorded at maximized effect.  


2560*1600 Max Setting


2560*1600 Minimum Setting


Training GTX780Ti fps:120+


Running at heavy battle. GTX780Ti fps:50+

During the test, we found that the fps was unstable. Especially, it shrunk down to 40 fps in 5v5 battle. It needed to point out that, fps didn’t get improvements when we closed shadow effect. Generally, from the Alpha test, Geforce GTX 760 / R9 270 are good ideas if you want to run Heroes of the storm at high resolution with shadow effect.
