Call of Duty Ghosts System Requirements

System Requirements Optimum 1080p PC Build Low vs Ultra Screenshots GPU Performance Chart CPU List That Meet System Requirements GPU List That Meet System Requirements

The next COD game, Ghosts is nearly with us and the requirements are looking like they are huge. Following in the footsteps of the Assassins Creed 4 requirements, we are thinking that the next gen level of tech requirements are finally here in full force.

Lets take a look at the Call of Duty Ghosts system requirements...

Call of Duty Ghosts Minimum System Requirements

OS: Win 7 64-Bit or Win 8 64-Bit

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ or an AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ

RAM: 6GB system memory

HD : 40GB of free hard disk

GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5870 or NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Ti

DX: 11 Direct X

NET: Activation requires one off internet connection and of course multiplayer will also need constant internet access

Ok I can sense some of you are weeping right now. After all, thats some pretty hefty requirements for Ghosts minimum specs. But this is "next gen" according to the marketing. What remains to be seen is whether Ghosts will look and play like it is worth 50GB of hard space, minimum of 6GB RAM and a powerful Radeon HD 5870, or if it is just badly ported.

Another thing to consider is that they may be exaggerating the minimum system requirements because they need to give the impression that Ghosts really is a Next Gen title, when in fact there might be a chance that it will run on a lesser machine and still look good.

Only time will tell and once we get our hands on Call of Duty Ghosts we will run it through its paces to see what lesser PC machines can do with it.

A final thing to note is that the Radeon HD 5870 is quite a bit more powerful than the GTX 550 Ti, which further suggests that Nvidia are the ones that have early access to this game for early optimising purposes.

Remember you can check out how well your PC Can Run Call of Duty Ghosts System Requirements here and as always we will adjust the requirements on that page further as the real world requirements start to get reported across the millions of different gaming systems.

Okay, its your turn guys, lets hear your thoughts?

This game being 64-bit as its minimum is really ridiculous. Try-hard :&#60.

smritimoy is right... No way in hell a game running on a modified BO2 engine (which itself was a modified MW2/3 engine) can have such requirements... Those CPUs will bottleneck even a GTS 450 leave alone an HD 5870... Minimum system requirements for this game have to be lower than BF4... In fact, any game that can run BF4 on low or medium can run a BO2 engine game on high or very high... Perhaps GTX 550 ti and HD 6770 will be recommended for this game...

Even that laptop will be fine... From the footage of campaign gameplay, this game has a lower level of detail than Crysis 2 leave alone 3... This game will use a heavily modified BO2 engine... If your laptop could run BO2, chances are it will have little trouble with Ghosts...

Anti-aliasing(AA) is meant to smooth jagged lines in game. AA tends to eat Frames per second (FPS) so it is better to go without if you are on the bottom end of a detail requirement. an example would be: You run this game on ultra and get 35 fps. That is still playable and will look pretty but for competitive play it is better to have 40-50+ fps. So by turning AA off you would gain the extra fps needed to be about 40 fps. It is just people trying to help you get the most out of games. But if eye candy is your main concern then by all means rock AA but it will hurt your fps.

Of course... If no major improvement over BO2, then max (HD 6770 could max BO2 even on 1080p)... If it really is way more demanding than BO2, then tweaked high... Your low resolution helps...

Honestly-with these reqs, like I said before, this game has to look like Crysis 3 on an overdose of steroids. It just looks like a slightly polished BO2. So almost anyone should be fine with this. I'm not saying it's true, its just that it is likely.
So yeah, smrit should be fine.

chombe is right... This game runs on a heavily modified BO2 engine and from the campaign gameplay tarilers I've seen, the level of detail seems way way way way lower than CryEngine 3 and Frostbite 3 games... HD 4000 and GT 610 should manage low at 720p no problem...

GTX 550 ti can probably max this game at 1920x1080 at 60+ fps... This game uses a modified BO2 engine and according to notebookcheck, they maxed it at 1920x1080 with AAx4 and AFx16 on a GTS 450 at minimum 34 fps and disabling AA would have pushed it to 45+ fps... GTX 550 ti is basically an overclocked GTS 450 with an extra memory channel...

HD 2500 can barely run BO2 on low settings at 25 fps and this game is indeed going to be more demanding (not exactly in the league of Frostbite 3 or Anvil Next though)... I would not get my hopes up... How do you run BO2 anyway...? Have you tried on your rig...?

No it will take between 15-20 gb(guessing) these requirements were released by Nvidia and activision already said they are the official. The official will be barely higher than MW3 since they are on the same engine.

These are fake... After seeing campaign gameplay footage, I saw that the level of detail is below Crysis 2... This game is using a heavily modified BO2 engine that IW is calling IW6 for as yet unknown reasons... Game is likely to be more demanding than BO2 but below Crysis 2 and BF3 leave alone Crysis 3 and BF4...

This game's level of detail is nowhere near (NOWHERE NEAR) Crysis 2 leave alone Crysis 3 and BF4... Most likely this game will require a Core 2 Quad or Phenom Quad Core and GTX 550 ti or HD 6770 for ultra settings... RAM is also most liekly going to be 2 GB minimum and 4 GB recommended...
