Trials is a series unlike few out there, demanding the upmost in precision, oftentimes at breakneck speed. Trials Fusion looks to be no different, setting the standard for the next generation of bike-em-ups.
This time, RedLynx is adopting the old adage that bigger is better, packing in more than 60 tracks, 1000 parts in Trials Fusion's creator mode, doubling the wheel count to four thanks to ATVs, and throwing in a trick system to boot. So, the game is changing, but what about the system requirements. Well, the Trials Fusion system requirements are probably enough to make your eyes water...
Trials Fusion Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista 32-bit SP2
CPU: 3.2 GHz Dual Core Intel Core i3-550 or 2.6 GHz Quad-Core AMD Athlon II X4 620
RAM: 3GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5850
DX: DirectX 10.1
HDD: 8 GB Free Hard Drive Space
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
Peripherals: Xbox 360 Controller recommended
Trials Fusion Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista 64-bit with Service Pack 2
CPU: 2.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5-2400S or 3.2 GHz Quad-Core AMD Phenom II X4 955
RAM: 4 GB System Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 7850
DX: Direct X 11
What's that I hear? Is that a roar of laughter? A gasp of shock? Yep, these are some pretty hefty system requirements, the bare minimum system requirements for Trials Fusion are probably enough to get a fair few gaming PCs running for their life.
First and foremost those GPU requirements. The GeForce GTX 460 and Radeon HD 5850 easily rank up there as one of the highest minimum system requirements we've ever had, hitting 8 out of 10 on the Game-Debate GPU Hardware Scale. To top it off you're going to be wanting a dual core i3-550 processor or a quad-core Athlon II X4 620 to supposedly get the game running at minmum. Still, at least the 3GB RAM requirement isn't too bad?
Moving on to the recommended requirements for Trials Fusion and it's the same tale again, this time asking for a whopping GeForce GTX 560 Ti or a Radeon HD 7850, and you'd best hope you're sporting a quad-core processor!
These requirements seem suspiciously high to us, particularly for a 2D-plane physics racing game. Developer RedLynx and the Trials series has a history of aiming for, and hitting, a solid 60 FPS. Trials HD managed a solid 60 FPS on 360, ditto with Trials Evolution. These Trials Fusion requirements may be artificially high to guarantee a smooth experience if you're hitting these brackets, but they're still pretty beastly.
Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the Trials Fusion System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users.
Compare your graphics card to the Trials: Fusion GPU benchmark chart.
Okay then, what do you think of these system requirements?
Were you expecting the system requirements for Trials Fusion to be anywhere near this high?

Bull**** like the cod ghosts and south park system req were
///Also why the dislikes it's the truth lol
The South Park system requirements were really a joke by the devs... But CoD Ghosts really does have stupid optimization... It runs sure enough on low settings with a playable frame rate on the HD 4000... But for max, you need a BF4 capable rig with say an i5-2500 and GTX 660 ti which is quite outrageous considering CoD Ghosts on max is not nearly as good looking as even Crysis 2 which was maxed out on a GTS 450 or HD 5770...
Ghosts looks far worse than crysis 2 with the dx11 graphics update it's only marginally better looking than blops2.
Ghosts doesnot even look like Crysis Warhead on high..:D
Wat? 460? 5850? Is this Watch dogs? Even Crysis 3 doesn't need a graphics card like that...
Are these guys drunk?? How can some 2d motorbike game require all that? No way. I can't believe it. Either their programming was the least efficient in the universe or they are lying.
Yeah... I mean, the graphics aren't all that impressive anyway, judging from the header image.
True!...that req are too hight...I don't belive it need same video card like Crysis 3 to be maxed out..
What the hell is with these crazy system requirements...? i3-550 in minimum...? Yeah right... Even Crysis 3 and BF4 have a 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo as minimum... And those GPU requirement...? Seriously...? They are not even that far apart in terms of the performance league...
i didn't know trials was on PC...
Will be agood game by the look of it
what settings for me
Way too demanding..So its running on Cryengine 3 or something? looks like a nice game.
Hmmmm I'm calling bullsh*t on this one.
I can get a stable 60fps with everything maxed and no drops in the beta so not sure what to think of these requirements.
Your gpu is above the recommendation and you have a low res and your Cpu is in the same level with the recommendation.
So...this game is a lot more demanding than Crysis 3 for example...at least judging from requirements.
it would appear so my friend. kinda worrying though cause there fairly high for a 2D game...
This is not really a 2d game it's renderd like a 3d game but the camera view is from the side.
I cant wait to play this game, looks fun.
