It's not often that a real-time strategy game can look awe-inspiring, but Battlefleet Gothic: Armada truly does. Based on the classic tabletop game from Games Workshop, it's space battling on an epic scale. Ships several kilometres long duke it out in the Gothic sector, helmed by iconic Warhammer 40K races such as the Chaos, Imperium, Orks, and Eldar. 

Players will be tasked with managing every aspect of their fleet, including equipment the giant battleships, choosing crews, captains, and slotting in weaponry. As you'd expect these deep space battles are absolutely gorgeous, so if you're thinking of picking Battlefleet Gothic Armada up you're probably wondering just how steep the official system requirements are...

Battlefleet Gothic Armada Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 3.3GHz or AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6850
  • HDD: 10 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Battlefleet Gothic Armada Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R9 270X

I'm not really sure what's going on with the Core i5-2500 and the FX-4100 down at the minimum. The Intel CPU is on another level to AMD's chip so they're really even very comparable. What it does indicate is that you'll be able to get away with a lesser Intel CPU for Battlefleet Gothic Armada than the one presented, possibly even an i5-750. 

Other than that though it's business as usual down at the lower end. From what little we've seen of Battlefleet Gothic Armada it's gorgeous at what it does. Those massive space vessels truly are a sight to behold, and you'll need the graphics hardware to match. By today's standards both the GTX 560 and Radeon HD 6850 are extremely low-end, hitting the market roughly five years ago. 

Should you want to crank all them dials to the max then things get a little more interesting. Clearly Battlefleet Gothic is no slouch in terms of the number of units and actions happening on screen at any one time, and this comes at the cost of some meat processors if you want to enable some of the more advanced affects such as tracer fire. Both the i7 and the FX-8350 are skirting near the top of their respective families. Other than that there's not too much to worry with the graphics cards, which aren't really a massive leap even from the minimum.

Kindly proof-read your article (or let someone else do it for you), before posting. Thank you very much.
It's not very coherent (missing words, wonky sentences..), nor does it make too much sense (although that's another discussion altogether).

i don't trust these requirements.when it comes to large battles im pretty sure even high end rigs won't even manage to keep a stable 60fps.plus an i5 means you're gonna need an i7 if you want to stand a chance online.

By saying "Laying Down Fire On Your Rig" i presume this game is going to be really CPU intensive, maybe its getting to that time where i need to think of investing in a new CPU, too many games are beginning to require an i7

That's some dumb cu?t sh¡t right there. "...laying down fire on your rig"? All the while demanding an 8350, 8GB of RAM and a GTX 760? What exactly are you smoking?
?igga I was eXPecting some Core i9, 1TB of RAM and 512GB VRAM, not this joke. Damn, this has clickbait written all over it. I was expecting some quality content given the author.

So you're expecting specs from like 100 years from now then is what you are getting at.

This is rich coming from you... The language you used there and your quality of writing is atrocious... Don't throw stones while sitting in a glass house...

I read the post and then I'm like: "aaah Super Nintendo!" :D

GTX 560 extremely low end? I would save the extremely for something like an Intel HD Graphics or GeForce 8800 GT
