Skyrim requires 2GHz dual core CPU 2GB RAM

first_imgBethesda is set to release the next game in the Elder Scrolls series in less than three weeks on November 11th. We’ve already seen how good Skyrim looks in multiple gameplay videos, but what does that mean for the PC rig you need to play it?Surprisingly, the minimum spec is quite modest. As a bare minimum you will get away with the following components:2GHz dual-core CPU2GB RAMDirectX 9 graphics card with 512MB RAMKeep in mind that is the minimum hardware, and you won’t be able to turn the resolution up or have or the nice effects turned on.If you want to turn it up to 11, then you’ll need the recommended specs or higher. As the minimum specs are quite modest, I guess quite a few gamers will already have the following inside their case or laptop:Quad-core processor (we’re assuming 2GHz+ again here although it is not stated)4GB RAMDirectX 9 graphics card with 1GB RAM (GeForce GTX260 or Radeon 4890 minimum)In both cases the game works with Windows XP/Vista/7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors and requires 6GB of hard drive space. You will also be required to setup a Steam account in order to activate the game. Many gamers will have been expecting that though, as Rage did exactly the same thing a few weeks ago.Of course, if you don’t have a PC good enough there’s always the console versions you can pick up. And somehow Bethesda managed to squeeze the whole game on to a single DVD for the Xbox 360.Is your PC good enough to handle Skyrim, or is this the excuse you needed to invest and upgrade?Read more at Bethesda Bloglast_img
