LOL @ quad as recommended, I am sure a fast dual core like the Core 2 duo @ 3.0 will be fine, especially at higher res.

Well, Alone in the Dark 5 also required dual core, but I was able to run it at max. I just changed priority to high.

In fairness, any sensible Pc gamer playing modern games is nutz to be playing games on anything other then Dual core, games for a long time run way better on Dual, and Single core is poor. Move with the imes, Dual core has been out for ages, and many games won't run or barely run on Single core now, it is time to ditch the Dinosaur, lol. If we are afraid to move ahead progress would never get made.

how can they put quad cpu mercie_blink.gif as recomended!?!???

if minimum is 1.8 c2d, for recomended sys req they sould have put 2.6c2d and not 2.4 quad!!

 

but I can run it oujea!!

so, you will nead SP3 for XP.....

 

edit:

@ DHoff,

if you wanna buy a c2d or a quad you should buy a new PC because not many motherboards that can handle single core cpu can handle c2d or especially quad....

No Game had ever a Quad Core as recommended even Crysis Warhead had a fast Dual Core CPU as recommended i really don´t know what this sh*t is angry.gif

 

And the Graphic Card. They put a NVidia 8600 in the same line as a ATI 3870 as recommended. The 3870 killes the 8600 in any way by far.

 

Rockstar really know how to piss off the PC Gamers. I guess the Game will run as bad as Bully.

Then you should have done mroe reaearch, buying a Pc 2 years ago and getting a Single core was a bad choice is you wanted to game on it, single core was on its way out back then.

I wonder how my X2 5000+ will cope with that Game. The Graphic card should be good enough.

 

I run Fallout 3, Quantum of Solace, Dead Space and Far Cry 2 maxxed out on my System with 1280x1024 if GTA IV will run bad i will.... devil.gif

I know that even if they were much lower than that I still wouldn't be able to play it.. BUT I must admit that they seem much higher than what most people here were expecting.

you officially don't have minimum cpu frequency and it's a laptop...hm....hard to know...

p.s. it's weird, recommended cpu is intel quad 2.4 and amd X3 2.1(if I'm not wrong X3 means 3 cores)

everything seems normal except the QUAD, that is retarded, seriously, the CPU in the consoles is slower then mid range dua core PC cpur's, so why is Quad recommended??? Sounds fishy, everything else is normal though.

Looks like I'll be saving up for the new Prince of Persia and this, since they're coming around the same time now.

 

One thing that bugs me about this, is they waited so long to release the system requirements, giving a lot of people the impression they were optimizing the game so well. And now this Core2Duo minimum, Core2Quad recommended crap, and a delay on top of it. So much for them spending extra time optimizing it...

 

On the plus side, it doesn't look like it requires a very good graphics card, even for the recommended specs.

 

 

 

 

P.S: I have a little story for everyone hoping it runs on single core. There's a little game out there called Assassins Creed. It has a minimum requirement of a dual core processor (not even Core2Duo, just dual core). I attempt to play it with my piddley little Pentium 4 3.4Ghz processor and get random freezing for minutes at a time (it always works again, but every minute or two it freezes for a little bit, rendering the game unplayable).

 

After researching that my motherboard is a hunk of junk, I decide to get the only dual core it supports (since I have no intentions of upgrading the entire mobo, sorry you PC elitists out there), a Pentium D 960 3.6Ghz. The freezing stopped in Assassins Creed and now it is quite playable on my computer.

 

Moral of the story? If you want to keep playing newer games, I suggest an upgrade. If your motherboard can support better though, please don't get Pentium D. wink.gif

 

If you don't want to upgrade, I'm crossing my fingers for you. It could work fine.

No not everthing is normal.

 

The recommended Triple Core X3 Phenom in the same line as a Core 2 Quad and on the other side a Nvidia 8600 as recommended in the same line as the ATI HD3870 which is about 3x faster than any NV 8600.

 

These specs are really weird and sound as Rockstar wouldn´t have optimized the Game for Lower to Mid Range PC´s.

 

Even I think that i will be able to run it with all details I am really angry with the way they formed those recommendations. They sound like for Crysis 2.

I don't think it is fake. The requirements have been posted on GTA4.net too so there has to be strength in the news.

 

I was going to go for a Phenom X3 first but I think I'll go for the Core2Quad seeing that it beats the Phenom in almost every department of performance. With my latest upgrade coming up soon, I don't think I should be having any problems playing the game at full settings. smile.gif

Dual core as minimum is fine, this is 2008, lol, the problem is QUAD as recommended, thatsa pile of ass rot. Dual core minimum is OK, geez, single core has been near its death for ages, anyone who plays games on PC should know Single core is virtually dead. Has been for awhile, games that do run on Single run much slower.

Can you read? i said outsdie the QUAD core recommended, everything else is about on par, what do yuo expect? to play modern games ona P4, lol, welcome to 2008. I said the CPU requirements are mental, yes, everything else is about on par.
