It is very early days for C&C Generals 2 but we have projected Generals 2 system requirements to ponder over already.
Lets take a look at the Predicted system requirements...
The first thing to consider is that it will be using the Frostbite 2 Engine
Command & Conquer: Generals 2 Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) 32-bit
CPU: 2 GHz Dual Core (Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.7 GHz)
RAM: 2 GB Memory
HDD: 20 GB Hard Disk Space
GFX (AMD): DirectX 10.1 compatible with 512 MB RAM (ATI Radeon 3000, 4000, 5000 or 6000 series, with ATI Radeon 3870 or higher performance)
GFX (NVIDIA): DirectX 10.0 compatible with 512 MB RAM (NVIDIA GeForce 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 or 500 series with NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or higher performance)
Command & Conquer: Generals 2 Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: Quad Core
RAM: 4 GB
GFX RAM: 1024 MB Memory
GFX: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 or ATI Radeon 6950
Having digested these predicted Generals 2 specs I think it is fair to say that they have been put together based around the knowledge that the game is using the Frostbite 2 Engine and so they have taken BF3 system requirements as a template. As many of you know and as we have been saying for a long time, the Frostbite engine is awesome but can be scaled comfortably down to enable lesser machines access to a very palatable game.
Another point to make is that NFS: The Run was recently released and it too uses the Frostbite 2 Engine. But BF3 and The Run have different requirements. When we asked EA about system requirement differences between The Run and BF3 we were told that the engine itself can be utilised in different ways and therefore Frostbite 2 system requirements can vary from game to game
The bottom line? Its probably still way too early to say for sure but we will keep you informed.
