The Witcher 2's system requirements are reasonable

The Witcher 2's system requirements are reasonable photo



Polygamia has the scoop on the system requirements for CD Projekt's highly anticipated The Witcher 2, a game that impressed me at Eurogamer and made Samit forget about sports in New York.

Recommended specs:
Processor: Intel Quad Core or AMD equivalent
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce 260, 1 GB memory / Radeon HD 4850 with 1 GB memory
Memory: 3 GB for Windows XP / 4 GB for Windows Vista and Windows 7
Hard Disk: At least 16 GB of free space

Minimum specs:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD 2.5 GHz equivalent
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800, 512 MB memory or ATI HD3850 512 MB
Memory: 1 GB for Windows XP / 2 GB for Windows Vista and Windows 7
Hard Disk: 8 GB for the game installation and 8 GB for bonus materials

They look reasonable enough. Most mid-range rigs should be able to run it, but if you were thinking of what kind of new PC to build, the recommended specs do make for a nice guideline. While the recommended quad core processor didn't include any model or speed, it's safe to assume you'll be fine with an i7 920 or something like that.

[Update: The Witcher 2's newsletter has some more info on the AMD/ATI specs, which has been added to this post. We have not yet received any reply to inquiries about what kind of "quad core" or reference resolution is assumed]

RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks rough

Mmm. There's no getting around it: RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks bad. I thought my expectations for the graphics were reasonable -- I've seen screenshots and they seemed adequate, if dated -- but in motion everything has become clear. You'd think this would be more of an upgrade from RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 considering that released over a decade ago. How disappointing.more
