Planetside 2 System Requirements?


Update: http://wiki.planetside-universe.com/...Specifications

What do you guys think the system requirements for this game will be.
I have alot of friends with mid range systems. That can play WoW, Rift, Cyrsis 2 reasonably well.

I will be picking up a new comp sometime in the near future when I hear the official system specs. going all out for this game. very excited.

But what type of systems do you think the game will run on?

They said they are aiming to make it run on a 4(5?) year old PCs in the interview.

I'm quite sure Crisis 2 grade PC is going to be more than enough.

Yeah, a lot of speculation right now. Especially over my PhysX question posted a couple of days ago. Right now I'm running a dual core e8400 w/ 4Gb of memory and a Radeon 6850. But will probably do a massive upgrade and roll into a hexa-core with 6-8Gb of memory and 2 nVidia cards SLI'd. Could be overkill, could be just right. But I want to do Planetside 2 justice when playing it. You don't buy a Ferarri to just have it sit in your driveway.

As soon as I settle down in 1 spot i'll get a kickass PC. Until then I'm stuck on my laptop.

It depends whether they meant 5 years old from when they made the statement or 5 years old at the time of release. Either way, everything's just speculation until people can test their rigs in beta.

They said 4 - 5 years old, Smedley said 3 years.

My computer which was just behind the curve 4 years ago:

C2Duo @ 2.66 Ghz
2 GB 800 MHz Corsair Dominator Ram
8800 GT 512 mb

Probably something like that.

I have a GTX 460 right now and I'm waiting to find out what the specs are before I upgrade my CPU/RAM/MOBO.

I'd imagine DX10/11 honestly. With their feature set, from a programming perspective, I'm picturing bottlenecks in DX9 leading me to believe they'll not support or drop DX9 support quickly in order to make certain feature untoggleable.

Medium range DX10 card probably will be the minimum with a quad-core CPU and 4 GB of RAM with Windows 7.

What they'll tell people though on the package? DX9 with a dual core XP and 2 GB of RAM. It'll run horribly on low quality in battles and die when the fights get large.

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume when they mean "run on 4 - 5 year old gaming machines" they mean ~30 fps with everything turned to shit.

Re: Planetside 2 System Requirements.?


highly doubt a base quad will be needed for DX11, that's just ridiculous! 3.0+ Ghz Dualcore man, that's going to the the recommended... because if this game is optimized for dual core... MAYBE a tri-core, then my 4.0Ghz or 3.5Ghz Dualcore E8400 will be better than a 2.6 Quad logically using only 3 cores. Honestly How many games are truly even taking advantage of 3 or more cores? that being said, I highly doubt Planetside will be have that much CPU demand. I'm seeing more of a GPU demand with a relatively moderate CPU model and/or clocked chip. Think about it, a 4 year old system had Pentium D's and EARLY C2D for Intel and AMD had Athlon x2's like the 4600+-5500+. I remember buying an AMD Athlon x2 5000BE(2.6Ghz) chip in 2006. My brother is using that chip overclocked to 3Ghz and running strong after 5 years! That's what I used to play Planetside on, with an AGP HD3850 512MB getting 60-90 Frames per second. good times good times

I'm sure it will, I'm actually thinking of buying a GTX 460 1GB... I was jsut about to get the galaxy super OC one for 160... and they sold out! I was fucking pissed. Which do you recommend? I'm stepping off the ATI(not AMD) train and this is going to be my first geforce since geforce MX440 from when I use to play tribes 2.
my cardline is as shows:
9600PRO(flashed to XT) 256MB -> X850PRO(pencil vmod and flashed to XT) 256MB -> HD1950 -> HD3850 512MB /END AGP
HD4850 512MB PCI-e. Now i'm looking at the Nvidia GTX460 (by the way, nvidia sounds like spanish for envious, food for thought)

I got this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo

But it's out of stock, the only other MSI 460 they have is this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127518

Which is slower and more expensive (mine comes in at $130 after MIR, this one is $150 after MIR) though I'm sure you can OC it up to the speeds on the one I got as they have the same cooling.

I've had it for a week and in my most graphic intensive game, Crysis, it doesn't go over 55 C under full load. Fans only get up to about 60%, and are just BARELY audible when there's no game noise. Idles at 40% fans 35 C. Great card, great value.

Oh, and I guess I should add that it gets good fps too . 30 - 40 everything on high in Crysis 1 with my old computer (C2Duo@2.66, 2gb ram)

It's pretty speculative at the moment but if you have a pretty good computer you are playing modern games on now you should be more than fine.

I intend to build a couple badass computers for Jen and I in the next several months. I want to smash mine every time I use it
