COD Advanced Warfare System Requirements Glimpsed

Annual COD! Its that time of the year, when the massive budget gaming releases are fast coming into view. Whether you like COD or not, the franchise sells well for Activision and you can bet your bottom dollar that they will keep producing an annual COD if people keep buying it. And they do. Apparently Ghosts sold 14.5 million copies.

Advanced Warfare looks like it took some serious inspiration from Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, as you get to run around in a super fancy muscle enhancing exo-skeleton. Well we have caught a brief glimpse of the COD Advanced Warfare system requirements and if you want to run Call of Duty Advanced Warfare on your PC, assuming the optimisation of Advanced Warfare is solid, then you are going to need a reasonable modern rig.

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 Ghz OR AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 Ghz or better
  • RAM: 6GB of System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX GTS 450 OR ATI Radeon HD 5870
  • HD: 40GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • Net: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-680 @3.6GHz or similar AMD CPU
  • RAM: 8GB of System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760

An important point of note is that these requirements were since removed from the official site where we spotted them. This could mean one of a couple of things. Firstly, these requirements are just a copy of the COD Ghosts requirements and could have been accidentally copied to the Activision site, as they templated the new advanced warfare webpage from the similar Ghosts page. OR they are just the early guess requirements, based entirely on COD Ghosts requirements but are pending the technical teams confirmation of accuracy and so were pulled until that happens. Or they are in fact the accurate COD Advanced Warfare requirements but because they have not officially announced the requirements yet via a press release they had to be pulled until the marketing is in place to capitalise on the announcement.

All that is left on the official website at the moment is confirmation of the operating system (win 7 or 8 64bit) and its Direct X requirement (DX 11). You can check out how well your PC can run COD Advanced Warfare System Requirements here. And you can also check out Frames Per Second results and performance from other users once they get their hands on it. Compare your graphics card to the Advanced Warfare benchmark charts.

Finally, let us know what your thoughts are about these requirements. Do they smell like rumour, are they just wrong or are they official advanced warfare system requirements? They are identical to Ghosts at this stage, so we feel like they are going to shift a little bit as the final optimisations are made by the development team on this final road to release. While it reportedly uses a new game engine to its predecessor, Ghosts also claimed to sport a new game engine and we were promised great things from Ghosts engine, which turned out not to be a new engine (next gen and all that) and it left us largely unimpressed. But Ghosts was still calling for a pretty powerful PC to play smoothly and the optimisation left something to be desired. Well we only have until the beginning of this November 2014, before we can see what special stuff this version of COD has in store for us.

these requirements are making me loose faith in developers and the future of pc gaming. Developers are becoming stupid with requirements and although there will always be a future in pc games, i think bs like this will make people jump ship. R.I.P master race.

Companies r forcing PC gamers to buy more than 1TB HDD force fully trying to backdate powerful GPU like GTX 660 670 680 690 HD 7870 7950 7970....CPU's like 3450 3470 3570 3570k 3770k FX 6300 FX 6350....this CPU and GPU's r more than enough for next gen games which r old wine in a new bottle.

It's call of duty , so why does anyone care ? The game will most likely be a unoptimized mess akin to ghosts and the gameplay looks like the typical rubbish , anyone with common sense will avoid this.

I have to say, I take all of that back. The game looks fantastic, a good return to form. They fixed the majority of the prominent problems in cod and optimized it well to boot. I can't wait to see what sledgehammer do next. They've just gone and made treyarch look like amateurs.

If these are the actual requirements for the game, then I will once again be skipping this years CoD. I get that games are becoming more advanced and need higher specs, but 4 gigs of VRAM for 1080p? Even Metro has lower requirements.

Come, Have a look at our latest game's system requirement, so that you'll get excited about the new engine that we copy-pasted from last engine and changed the name,
Sincerely
EA,
And if u preorder now you'll get to play SP missions that we were going to include in main game but'll soon release as DLC so that our company can make more bucks - 59.99$

Worse optimalisation. where is the optimalisation like in MW3? It has slightly better graphics than MW2 and ran at the same FPS (25-40) on my Intel HD 1000 (i3-350M) at med settings 768p

Actually the i7 Turbos to 3.2 during gaming. So it's much better than an i3. Yes, the i7 is much better than the GPU.

Also, the GPU is 2GB DDR5. This setup can still play every game to date, although some games have to run on low @1080 or medium @720.
