I managed to play on low settings on a AMD Phenom 9550 with 4GB DDR2 at 800 mhz and a Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 750Ti Windforce 2X at a rezolution of 1600x900 and 60Hz. I did not try to tweak the game towards medium.

I am running this game on medium, 1920x1080 using a Core 2 Duo E7400 2.80Ghz, 4GB RAM and a Geforce 9600GT 512mb. I don't know how many fps, but I believe it's around 25-30.

I have a Potato laptop I tested it on.

It tells me that I can't run it even on the minimum, cause my gpu is too weak. I run it on highest settings possible with no issues at all. Great game btw.

So far with 20+ hours of gameplay (600 stars, 30 ai), no problems. 50 fps on average. However, in big fleet battles, fps drops to 30, still playable.

It' a stable 40-50 fps for me, with normal settings. But I did not went far in the game, so maybe it will lag a bit later when there will be more spaceship and planets? I don't knwo yet
