Unsupported Video Cards/Chipsets

Below, you will find a list of unsupported graphics cards.
  • Intel GMA 950
  • Intel GMA X3100
  • ATI Radeon X1600
  • ATI Radeon X1900
  • NVidia Geforce 7300
  • NVidia Geforce 7600
  • NVidia Quadro FX4500

Note: The Intel HD3000 (NOT X3100) is only working properly on 10.7.4 because of driver issues.
Note: The ATI Radeon 2400 is below minimum requirements, so performance might be an issue.

All other cards are supported. This means that we will do our best to fix issues, including performance, with those cards.

Display Mode/Resolution Changes
    The resolutions do not represent display modes any more. The native display mode is used. If your desktop uses your monitor native resolution then the game doesn't change it. You can choose at which resolution the game will be rendered. Diablo III tries to figure out the native resolution and generates 10 resolutions based on that.

    For example: If your resolution uses 1920 x 1080, 16:9 ratio; it will offer resolutions based on the same ratio aspect:
    • 1066x600 (wide)
    • 1180x664 (wide)
    • 1284x772 (wide)
    • 1380x776 (wide)
    • 1468x826 (wide)
    • 1552x874 (wide)
    • 1632x918 (wide)
    • 1710x962 (wide)
    • 1782x1002 (wide)
    • 1920x1080 (wide)

If you have issues with resolutions not being generated correctly, please try reverting to the older display mode, where it is limited but the current resolution of your OS.
    1. Make sure Diablo III is closed.
    2. Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities)
    3. Copy/Paste the following command:
    defaults write com.blizzard.diablo3 DesktopModeIsDefault 14. Press Return. (There should be no output if done correctly)
    5. Exit Terminal.

This should now allow you to display resolutions based on your current OS resolution.
