Re: Fo4

Well, i'm really hoping that there's not too strong an infection of consolitis in this game. I am sure that my existing rig will have no trouble with it.

Re: Fo4

I think its out 11/15. Here are the min/max requirements.

The system requirements for Fallout 4 on PC are as follows:

Minimum:
•Operating system: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
•Processor: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz or equivalent
•Memory: 8 GB RAM
•Hard disk space: 30 GB free HDD space
•Video: NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent

Recommended:
•Operating system: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
•Processor: Intel Core i7 4790 3.6GHz / AMD FX-9590 4.7GHz or equivalent
•Memory: 8 GB RAM
•Hard disk space: 30 GB free HDD space
•Video: NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB / AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent

I am not in the know about games but a preferred i7-4790 and GTX 780 are at the very top Must be a demanding game. I didn't find out if it is DX12 or not. What concerns me is the plot. Is this like Half Life? If so I might give it a go. Never played FO before and I need an immersive game that looks good.

Re: Fo4

The minimum card (NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB) is not too far from my beloved old GTX 570 (a 5yr old card).

Also, down at the bottom explains it all regarding the new 'FO4' improvements.

"Regardless of your system configuration, all NVIDIA GPU users will automatically receive Optimal Playable Settings for Fallout 4 through GeForce Experience, and those with sufficiently-speedy, compatible GPUs will have NVIDIA Volumetric Lighting effects enabled in-game. With a single-click, Fallout 4’s 20 settings will be auto-configured for your system, with a target of 60 frames per second, delivering a responsive, smooth experience.

With our Optimal Playable Settings, Game Ready drivers, and Volumetric Lighting effects, the definitive Fallout 4 experience will be on GeForce GTX PCs. If you do need or desire an upgrade to attain this experience, our recommended GeForce GTX 970 can be won in Radiation Check contest, along with an amazing, themed Fallout 4 PC, and copies of the game."

So like I was saying, you should load Game Experience and select the FO4 game to get optimal play and not just the driver.

I've been using that for over a year now on all my games and works well...

Here is what the developer says.

ABXZone Computer Forums - View Single Post - Fo4

lineup.png

At least a GTX 780 and a i7 4790K is recommended by the game developer. Hard to believe it takes that much power. The minimum is a GTX 550 Ti which is definitely not the card you want to go with.
