But if you think about it and these based on 64 player requirements.... :/

Or they say quad core and only mean tri core... But intel is the way system req's are based :/

Plus it dont say what vid card you need :/
BC2 on a dual core Intel was just barely enough, even at 3Ghz. I imagine when they say Quad Core, they mean Quad Core.

My 9950 Quad Phenom will handle it......but it looks like my 9800GTX+ will barely scrape by.

Time to start saving for a new rig....

Nooooo, this makes my q6600 show its age Soon it won't meet minimum specs of future games, but I don't want to upgrade, to much hassle/$$$
like it said its for tech purposes and server testing im sure they will focus on client performance when the beta comes around. I can see it requiring quadcore CPUs but i don't think they mean brand spanking i7s

Quad core and 4GB RAM? Yeah right, I bet a E8500 or an equivalent would run it no problem.

BC2 doesn't count, as it was a crappy console port.

Looking at those specs makes me realize that poor umbra isn't as young as it used to be.

I won't be upgrading anytime soon though. Not if i can help it.

All the more reason to push those overclocks further. Now thats the real spirit of overclocking.

yea well that "crappy console port" runs pretty well, can ultilize 6 core CPUs and has support for DX11 (not much of a console port is it?)
maybe check out Console Port 101 and actually learn what a console port is before labeling various games.

anyway BF always like quad core or more. trust me the difference between quad and dual in BF is huge.
i think the min requirement will be a triple core.
