Full system requirements for ArmA III reported on Aug-17-2013

The regular GD visitor will have seen these requirements coming, as Bohemia Interactive, the ARMA 3 devs, have continually kept us updated for the past couple of years on what is to be the expected requirements.

Now that we are close to launch, the official requirements have just been finalized, so lets take a look and see if you can run ARMA 3 system requirements...

Arma III is a tactical shooter, one of the few that try to priorities realism (effectively). With that come huge maps, loads of vehicles, weapons and of course pretty and detailed leaves. There is no denying that Arma III is a good looking game, and with all the events happening it will likely take some horsepower.

In addition Bohemia Interactive previously stated that they will offer the player many graphical and system customization options in ARMA III, when the game releases. For example, screen resolutions can be adjusted as well as countless scenery option tweaks.

Alright, now you know what we are looking at and won't tumble across any surprises, lets see what you need to run this game, the official system requirements.

Arma III Minimum System Requirements

OS: Win Vista SP2 or Win 7 SP1 (Apple OS is not supported)

CPU: Intel Dual-Core 2.4 GHz or AMD Dual-Core Athlon 2.5 GHz

GPU RAM: 512 MB graphics memory

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT or ATI Radeon HD 3830 or Intel HD Graphics 4000

RAM: 2GB of memory

DX: 10 Direct X

HD: 15GB spare hard drive space

HD (BETA): 10 GB spare hard drive space

AUDIO: DX compatible on-board

OTHER: Internet connection plus Steam account for activation

 

Arma III Recommended System Requirements

OS: Win Vista SP2 or Win 7 SP1 (Apple OS is not supported)

CPU: Intel Core i5-2300 or AMD Phenom II X4 940

GPU RAM: 1 GB graphics memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 7750

RAM: 4 GB of memory

DX: 11 Direct X

HD: 25GB spare hard drive space

 

This title is PC only and clearly an example of a game that utilizes a hefty CPU, although interestingly can be played by a mid-range GPU. This CPU requirement is most likely due to the large ARMA 3 maps, the high number of possible players and their actions, which all need continual processing.

It's predecessor enjoyed a resurgence in popularity due to it's modding capabilities. I'm sure you are all aware of the immensely famous DayZ mod? Good news for the modding-fans as Arma III will continue to support the community-mods.

Arma III is scheduled for release on September 12th, 2013. What do you think of these system-requirements? Sound fair? Let us know how you will run this game in the comments below!

Something in the game. It may just be servers, if you are online.
Your gpu is more than good, the cpu is good. it should work fine. it's not your pc.
there are optimization guides out there.

It depends from server to server. I get 22-30 FPS on Avg in the wasteland server I play on… dense area or not I still get 22 FPS. You can probably avg high 27-30 FPS. But don't be discouraged because ARMA 3 isn't very well optimized…

Around 22-30 FPS. Honestly it depends on a server. The server I play on I get 25 avg FPS whether I'm at a city/town or on a field. Sometimes you'll hit up 40 FPS and few points you'll hit up to 60 FPS. ARMA 3 isn't very optimized…

You could definitely run it on low but I don't think you'd get much higher than 30 fps :) Sorry :(
