    Looking forward game performance reviews that prove 16GB of RAM provides a worthwhile benefit to gameplay.

    I'm going to call it now. The EA forums are going to light up like Christmas with posts from people complaining about performance problems on low-end gaming computers.

    Re: PC system requirements for Star Wars: Battlefront published

    I did a double take the other day when i found out those requirements.... so much higher than BF4, why?

    Also, its been stated elsewhere that there is no server browser, only quick match-making, so how are you supposed to play with mates? I do have a PC capable of playing this without any problems, but now it is no longer a definate must buy... i am now almost definately not going to buy... if the server management game joining process doesn't allow total freedom to choose which server i am joining.

    Surprised that 970 is the recommended card considering how good the graphics look in videos that I have seen so far.

    This is of course assuming that recommended does not translate to 'high' but not 'ultra' settings.

    They don't look bad at all.

    Lets not forget the current consoles makes 8GB the new norm. They are asking for a DUAL core CPU.

    The only debatable point is the GPU. 7850 doesn't seem particularly outrageous to me.

    From Nvidia :-

    Based on our own testing, Electronic Arts' recommendation of a GeForce GTX 970 will give gamers 60 frames per second and above at 1920x1080, with medium detail settings, in the Walker Assault's 40-player battles. Higher detail levels will require more powerful GPUs, such as the GeForce GTX 980 and 980 Ti, as will higher resolutions.

    Re: PC system requirements for Star Wars: Battlefront published

    Surely these are pre-optimisation specs? No way the recommended specs can be R9 290/GTX 970 level. My rig with a ****ing R9 280X and a Phenom II 955 has ran everything (including Crysis) on just about Ultra so far and you're telling me my PC won't manage this very well? Hmmm..

    Having said that, it would be nice if games started pushing the boundaries of hardware limits again because lets face it, there's not many games that bring the mid-high level cards to their knees which kind of renders high-end stuff superfluous.
