Changing this setting[edit | edit source]

This CVar requires a UI reload. In-game, type the following

/console gxDepthBits setting
/console gxColorBits setting
/console gxRestart

Alternatively, you can exit wow, open the Config.wtf file, and add the following line:

SET gxDepthBits setting
SET gxColorBits setting

Notes on 16-bit setting[edit | edit source]

As of 3.1, 16-bit is no longer a valid setting in the Interface dropdown menu[1]. However, if you still need to use this setting due to a very low-end graphics card, you can via the in-game macro:

/console gxDepthBits 16
/console gxColorBits 16
/console gxRestart

Be aware that this setting does NOT save when you shut down the game, and you'll have to run these lines every time you log in.
