System requirements released for Shogun 2

by: Chad -
Gone are the days when I really had to pay attention to system requirements of PC games.  Hardware used to be driven so much by available games, but that not really the case now.  Even a moderately priced system from 2-3 years ago can still handle new games (although at lower settings). 

If you want to crank the graphics quality up on Total War: Shogun 2 when it is released in March, below is what you are going to need.  Yeah, you can still use a single core processor.  Here are the Minimum Specs:
  • 2 GHz Intel Dual Core processor / 2.6 GHz Intel Single Core processor , or AMD equivalent (with SSE2)
  • 1GB RAM (XP), 2GB RAM (Vista / Windows7)
  • 256 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card (shader model 3)
  • 1024x768 minimum screen resolution
  • 20GB free hard disk space
Recommended Specs:
  • 2nd Generation Intel® Core i5 processor (or greater), or AMD equivalent
  • 2GB RAM (XP), 4GB RAM (Vista / Windows7)
  • AMD Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 series graphics cards or equivalent DirectX 11 compatible graphics card
  • 1280x1024 minimum screen resolution
  • 20GB free hard disk space
