Wrath of The Lich King Graphics & Benchmarks

PCGH takes a look at new graphics the Wrath of the Lich King expansion is bringing to World of Warcraft, using console options for things like Level of Detail and the concentration of foliage to see the impact of the increased density of foliage in the add-on. They have screenshots demonstrating the visuals and benchmarks showing the impact cranking up such options has on framerates. Update: Edited for accuracy.

The console commands are at least two months old, of not more so. However, I don't know if any other sites have run benchmarks on them (though I would not be surprised.)

With regards to "manic half," there are various detail configuration options in WoW, but they are very minimal. The console commands give you more adjustable control over the specific settings as well as surpassing the allowable maximum in the configuration area.
As a raiding rogue, looking at WotLK and feeling a bit worried...,

I'm looking for some alien toilet to park my bricks; who's first?
I love you, mom.
