    Previously they've just been the absolute minimum needed to avoid your PC tapping out and falling unconscious. Technically correct, but utterly ridiculous framerates. My Netbook could 'technically' play Tomb Raider, but you'd never ever want it to...!
    Presumably this is now the absolute minimum needed for reasonable and actually playable performance?

    Doesn't seem that bad. Doesn't even say it has to be a 6GB 1060.

    RX 580 can be had for £155: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-DUAL-R...dp/B071NS93PH/
    Ryzen 1300X is £71.

    I've got a 1060 GB, but I'm curious if my old i7 870 can still handle it. I imagine the increased IPC of an i5 7600K would make it up to twice as fast possibly? In short, I *might* get away with running it at around 30fps or something, but it won't be pleasant!

    Re: Remedy: you will need a GTX 1060 / RX 580 minimum, to play Control

    Well I'm out - RX480 8Gb (which has more poke than a 1060 thanks to post release driver improvements - thanks AMD) and a 3570K which hasn't struggled yet?? I don't think I'd be complaining but if it can run on a xbox one which is far lower spec why can't it run on my PC (To many Nvidia enhancements??)

    Its also Epic store which I don't like so I'm doublely out. Shame - I was quite looking forward to this one.

    PC gaming is not a cheap hobby, if someone can't afford it, they will need a new hobby soon.

    Nah. I'm currently playing the amazing XCOM2, which cost about £5, on a mostly 9-year old computer powered by a £40 server chip from ebay. (The GPU is rather more modern, granted, but it meets the minimum requirements for this game too, not that I'll play it )

    *Minimum*

    1060 is meant to be mid-range, not entry level graphics.

    I think you're letting your imagine run ahead of Intel's actual IPC increases since 2009.

    Passmark rates the i7-870 and i5-7600K

    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare...600K/832vs2919

    And most of that is probably due to clocks and far better turbo.

    I didn't mean the IPC alone had increased two-fold, just that it would be performing around that range, although I didn't word it so much that way, but that was what I was thinking. I should have re-looked at what I had written. I understand the clockspeed differences too, but I've tried to overclock in the past, and I couldn't get anywhere near that as my motherboard is too cheapo. Either way, if that processor is minimum, I probably haven't got much of a chance!

    Probably just means it's heavily non-optimized or using some graphics technique that is quite cost heavily (i.e. Didn't Remedy do this with Quantum Break? 4x super-resolution blurryness for no good reason?)

    Biggest load of rubbish I've heard in a while. I've been a PC gamer since I was 14 in 1995 and I've always struggled to keep a usable PC together on a shoe string budget (Thanks to Uni, Mortgage then Family) but I've always done so and enjoyed doing so. Sure I've never had access to the higher resolutions or GPU tech (i.e. Ray tracing) but doesn't mean I can't have fun and enjoy the freedom to mod and cheaper games than I could on a similarly priced console. Step outside the realm of chasing the latest tech and its not really that expensive...

    Buying upper-level enthusiast components brand new at point of release to try and stay ahead of the tech curve is not cheap.... PC gaming is one of the cheapest hobbies I've ever had.

    If you don't believe me, try woodworking... or re-enactment... or vaping...

    Re: Remedy: you will need a GTX 1060 / RX 580 minimum, to play Control

    I'd have been quite interested to try this out on PC - as with most RTX games.

    Sadly they made the stupid decision to support anti competitive, anti consumer practices and release this as an Epic store exclusive, so they won't be seeing a penny from me now or in the future.

    We need to stand up for the PC gaming community and refuse to support this kind of rubbish.
