Seems like we're hearing the first death knells of playing modern games on dualcores.

Though really given how people tell me BF3 ran on dualcores, we've been seeing signs for a while.

Interesting. I have a 7970, but my CPU is an older Phenom II x4 965 @ 4.0 Ghz. CPU won't gimp me too much, right?

It's about time my Core 2 Duo no longer passes the minimum requirement, time for upgrade. Glad I got the Wii U to tie me over before I build a new PC.

The DirectX 11 revolution is finally happening. DX9 no longer the minimum.
Now for all games to make HD 7850 the new standard.

Wow, looks like I'll have to buy some water cooling and crank my i5 up If I want this on PC.

Nice that the recommended is a 7850 though, Sure a 7850 will working nicely.

Pleased to see Octo-cores being important now, better multicore support is desperately needed on PC.

Your CPU is more powerful than next gen console's so probably not much

Depends how many virtual threads your cores are capable of. Most Intel CPUs DON'T have hyperthreading.

They've been stuck at seven cores with the i7. Don't think we'll need more.

None of the intel CPU's listed are 8 cores... unless Hyperthreading counts?

Our i7 2600k's will be fine. Tear for the i5 owners though.

CPUs seem a lot more important as devs push more physics and multicore support into their games. BF4 is brutal on PC CPUs on Ultra.

There are no 8 cores... At least from intel. Only 8 threaded cpu's. I have a CPU with 12 threads and 6 cores. Wasn't aware of 8 cores yet? But I don't follow amd CPUs.

Well, it's not like people with 32 bit cpus are that invested in high end games. Quad core cpu requirement does seem a bit steep, but you can get those for pretty good prices right now,

Our i7 2600k's will be fine. Tear for the i5 owners though.

The i5 2500k is four core, so people who have that should be fine.

I wonder why it is so CPU bound when the nextgen consoles have such relatively low powered CPU's.

The "recommended" i7 3770 is a 3.4GHz CPU (2x vs consoles), which is probably about 2-3x faster faster clock for clock, and being able to run 8 threads. This means a 4-6x increase at the minimum, which makes it very suprising.

Same here, got a Q6600. But my 560ti 2gb is in the recommended for gfx cards, so not all bad news.

Devs don't even utilize quad cores to their maximum, why the fuck should eight cores be a requirement? Sounds like some BS to me.

A high end quardcore will outperform any low eightcore by far.
