This is essentially a 5 year old game, and even though it has seen graphical updates and increased scale, the developers have been committed to keeping it viable for PCs from five years ago.

I run Warframe on two different systems but works rather well on both. My main PC runs a solid 60FPS with no glitches are server connection issues. My laptop is somewhat older and not spec'ed for gaming but still holds at a 30 FPS most of the time.


Tech aside, the game is awesome but with a rather large learning curve. But I will admit once you find out where everything is, its a blast.

Just curious whether I can run it or have to make some tweaks in the settings for it to run smoothly.

You might be able to go on ultra with 8GB RAM but 16 would probably make sure you're always above 60fps

This game is optimized so damn well, I run it locked at 120fps with literally every setting at its respective maximum.

Quick question...is Warframe's playability based more on the graphics card or the processor? Because I have a 4-core i7 processor, but an Nvidia NVS 4200m card.
