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.

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.

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.

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.
