Diablo 3: Unsupported Video Cards

Diablo 3 is finally here after years of waiting, so everyone wants to know if their PC that ran Diablo 2 is going to work (good luck guys!).

The minimum video card requirements seem a little steeper than what I expected from a top down game, but either way this is the official unsupported video card list for Diablo 3.

Note that this is not a comprehensive list. Just because you don’t see your video card listed here doesn’t mean it will work. Check my Diablo 3 supported video cards list to see if it’s there, and if it’s not on either of these then it may just be too old.

Unsupported – Poor Performance

The game may start with one of these video cards, but it may not be able to run very well, if at all.

    Diablo III runs just fine on a 7800 card, provided it is PCIe, I have personally verified this. There were AGP versions of the same card that have well documented performance issues, these probably wouldn’t work so well.
