Whats specs are SOE using to run Planetside 2 in these videos?


I know the game is not fully optimized and by the time it comes out we'll probably have the 780 and 8970 but I'm just curious as performance seems good in the videos.

Thanx.

They probably had a cray super computer powered by 4 nuclear reactors and and a flux capacitor.


The level of detail is almost worrying in a way. I fear my computer may not be able to run the game at anything faster than a slideshow.

I'll probably be able to run it smoothly, provided I turn the graphics down and not run everything in all its high-def glowy beauty. :/

SOE isn't new to making games. I'm sure it will be within reason.

A while ago Higby said his computer was equipped with a pair of 460s in SLI, but that it was way overkill. So a single 460 should still be sufficient enough.

EDIT:

I was way off on that one, but still, that was some months ago (March 3rd). So I'm optimistic about the requirements.

Safe to say they had some pretty impressive PC's. The latest stuff(within 6 months gear).

It's actually only 3 reactors. The NRC requires us to have the fourth available as a backup.
