With Max Payne ready to retun the the gaming scene, Rockstar recently revealed the PC requirements to run this game. From what we’ve seen, the game looks stunning and the requirements…well, judge for yourself.
Windows 7 32/64 Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 32/64 Service Pack 2, Windows XP 32/64 Service Pack 3
Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ – i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHZ / AMD Dual Core 2.6 GHZ – FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHZ
2GB – 16GB
NVIDIA® 8600 GT 512MB VRAM – NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680 2GB VRAM / Radeon HD 3400 512MB VRAM – Radeon HD 7970 3GB VRAM
100% Direct X 9.0 compatible – Direct X 9.0 compatible supporting Dolby Digital Live
From all that above, it looks like you’ll really need to max out your hardware to get something brilliant. From what we’ve known in the past, Rockstar games for the PC, usually come in a less than desired optimized state. So I’d take the above with a pinch of salt. I would think, if you’re rocking a Core i5 with a 6870 and atleast 8 gigs of RAM, you should be good.
Here’s a look at some of the latest PC only screenshots in full detail.
