I know it's a bit premature but I had the time to work on it now, so the PC Performance Thread is here!

Will try and keep the thread updated as best as I can, but will probably need some help from the community to keep it as up to date.

Even used the NMS font in the banner :eek:

WE ARE HOURS AWAY GAF!!!! ALMOST THERE

You should add the FOV slider options to the 'Graphical settings' part. Sean confirmed them earlier this week IIRC.

That 8GB RAM minimum demand is confusing. I'm sure it's a very generous estimate. The only other game I have which uses 8GB of RAM (VR aside) is Mirror's Edge Catalyst which seems way more intensive than NMS based on what I've played of NMS on PS4. Edit: now I think about it, I'm sure descending to planets is really RAM-heavy.

I'll be very interested to see how this thing looks on proper high spec systems but also if it runs competently, if at all, on very low spec ones.
I don't think it'll be kind to low spec systems. Really intensive on the CPU, the GPU, and possibly the RAM.

Haha, let me find the image that was posted around reddit. I'll add it.

Also any suggestions or improvements you guys have for the OP, please let me know. I'll do my best here :)

21:9 support too, he mentioned taping cardboard to the sides of his monitor when implementing it because they don't have a 21:9 monitor at the studio.

Hope it runs on my Dell XPS.

intel I7 - 6700HQ
16GB of RAM
512SSD
1080p FHD screen
here's the part I'm kinda worried about...I got the Nvidia Geforce 960M 2GB.
If it's at all well optimized it well run great on that.

I'll be waiting in this game until it's around $20-30. Might have been tempted to jump with the usual 20% discount at least but seeing as that's not available I'll wait.

Excited to see some great screenshots though.

i've got a bad feeling about this.

i'm hoping and praying it looks and runs significantly better than PS4. My pc should be no problem:

i7-6700K, 16GB, GTX 1070.

I should probably post this in the OT but I'm thinking of buying this on GOG since it's cheaper there. Is there any reason why I shouldn't buy it there instead of Steam?

Going to be interesting as I'm reading in the steam discussion boards the 480 (minimum) is much better than the 900M series.

I hope it doesn't have the ugly pop-in with the ugly dithering. I also hope it's possible to disable Chromatic Abomination.

So, if this doesn't take full advantage of the way better CPU in a PC compared to PS4, which Sean Murray said in regards to the PS4 NEO would "completely change the experience we can provide" then, well....not sure what to say.

I really hope it is not just a full on PS4 port with some higher res and FPS.
But it'll probably be.
