The representative from developers, Piranha Games, followed up by saying this regarding the MWO System Requirements -
Right now a duo core system is our minimum spec machine but it is also our main focus of concern. It is playable on those specifications and I have tested it myself but it is currently very much a minimum spec type of experience running on low-detail settings. It’s obvious that a Quad core system is the key as even the earliest Core 2 Quad systems run the game very well and it is our goal (since there are still so many out there), to optimize the Core 2 Duo systems to run much faster.
Thats some hefty recommended RAM requirements there and interestingly they seem to recommend a Intel Core i3-2500 CPU. As far as I know that doesnt exist and they actually mean an i5-2500. Please let me know if I am wrong about that.All The Latest News On Game Debate
