It's time to give your thumb down to life's responsibilities. Paradox's next grand strategy game, Imperator: Rome, will be launching on PC on April 25th, priced at $39.99. This roman historical strategy game will allow players to rule over the classic world following the death of Alexander the Great, governing hundreds of ancient kingdoms.

In addition to the release date, Paradox has also supplied the system requirements for Imperator: Rome and they're a pretty big step up from their usual strategy titles.

Imperator: Rome Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2105 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-8120 3.1 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1.25 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 570 or Radeon HD 6970
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA Available Hard Drive Space

Imperator: Rome Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5 GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 2200G 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R9 380
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA Available Hard Drive Space

Thankfully, these specs are on the low-end but they're still quite a bit more demanding than the studio's previous in-house game, Hearts of Iron IV. I should imagine a lot of people play Paradox grand strategy on laptops and so these system requirements for Imperator: Rome could potentially pose a few problems.

Down at the minimum end, you'll be needing a dual-core low-end processor to play Imperator: Rome, paired with DX11 video card with a minimum of 1.25GB VRAM. This shouldn't pose too much of a problem for anyone who's bought a system in the last five or so years. This will be enough to play Imperator: Rome at lower resolutions and graphics settings.

As for the recommended sys reqs for Imperator, these are actually pretty punch considering it's quite a rudimentary-looking game. AI maneuvres are probably going to be your main enemy here and the faster your processor, the faster their moves can be calculated. That said, provided you have any sort of quad-core processor we can't see you running into any trouble with Imperator: Rome.

As always, you can check out how well your PC can run  Imperator: Rome System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users.

HoI IV uses only one cpu core making it slow in late game. I hope this one is multithreaded.

The FX-8120 seems a bit out of place compared to the i3-2105

Their IPC is about the same,it might be an indicator that the Game is Single Threaded

IPC is much better on the i3 though.

the i3 has higher IPC, the fx 8120 has about 30-35% lower IPC, so it would have to be overclocked to about 4.0Ghz to match it.

I used to own an i3 2105 back in the Day it scored pretty low in Single Core it about matched that of the FX 8350 IIRC,I assume the FX 8120 would be quite close
