News: Tomb Raider PC System Requirements

new-tomb-raider_320wHave you been wondering whether your PC will be able to run Square Enix’s upcoming Tomb Raider? Well the official system requirements have been released by the company and to be honest, they don’t seem too demanding.

Tomb Raider will feature support for Big Picture Mode, high-resolution textures and Steamworks in addition to having been heavily optimised for PC play. So if you have your PC set up with your nice big HDTV, you’ll be able to enjoy the same experience as those who purchase the game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Check out the minimum and recommended requirements below:

Minimum System Requirements

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista,7,8 (32bit/64bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics card with 512Mb Video RAM: AMD Radeon HD 2600 XT, nVidia 8600
  • Dual core CPU: AMD Athlon64 X2 2.1 Ghz (4050+), Intel Core2 Duo 1.86 Ghz (E6300)
  • 1GB Memory (2GB on Vista)

Recommended System Requirements

  • Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB Video RAM: AMD Radeon HD 4870, nVidia GTX 480
  • Quad core CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 565, Intel Core i5-750
  • 4GB Memory

The minimum requirements are pretty handy if you like to game on your laptop, with most medium range laptops being well within the limits, and you may even be able to push for the higher settings with a few tweaks here and there. All in all, it shouldn’t be too much of a strain on mid-range PC’s and laptops, but obviously for the best experience you’ll want to be at least hitting the recommended specs.
