So dose anyone know what kinda of a pc your going to need for this game, with those graphics.... theres no way that i can play it on my pc.. my 1,3 ghz can handle 2k4 but no way it will handle 2k7.. im thinking of buying a new pc but if its not going to be able 07 then why buy it? im thinking a 3.0ghz P4 with HT and a 128 mb 300x vcard

If I had to guess, I'd wager a 1.6GHz P4 will be recommended (reccomended for 04 was 1Ghz). The better your system, the better.

don't worry
the pics look like they just raised the resolution of the textures
it should be possible to play UT07 with a "slow" PC on low detail

I think with the way computers have speeded up this year you may need a decent machine to run it at acceptable settings. This year we get Dual core processers, later to be followed by Dual core gfx - not to forget NVidia's SLI. My guess at a spec would be something around really high spec now for minimum. Game aint coming out for 2 years and if you follow Moore's Law computers double in speed every 18 months.

Either way, you still have a lot of time to save before UT2007 [arrgg, have to get used to it] is released. Even if you don't have money to get the best, you should still be able to afford a current High-End Pc in 2006.

I'm gonna be saving up so I can get a new PC around the time it comes out. I'm not satisfied with the performance of my 2.8 GHz P4 and 9800 Pro as it is, so there's no way I'd try to play UT3 (I'm not saying UT2007 until the game ships with that title on the box) on it. I'm definitely going AMD next time. Hopefully something along the lines of dual-core 64-bit goodness if such a thing exists by then and dual ATI video cards...

The Dual cores are nearly out mate. There been reviews on them on numerous sites:

May 31 is going to be interesting day, as it brings the launch of dual core processors on the desktop. Of course the hyper-threaded Pentium Extreme Edition 840 is sparsely available today - for example, it can be found at Dell.......

I Game aint coming out for 2 years...

According to Mike Capps at Epic in the Gamespot article, it's coming mid 2006...which is around a year away.
Not a lot of time to get saving.

Yeah for a dual core, dual processor setup, 2 Gb 500mhz DDR2 with 4x SLI 6800 Ultra cards working together... And that's just to make sure Longhorn will boot up :D

The_Head do you maybe know dual core is for gamers to?

I got a 3 ghz, 1 gig RAM, 6800 gt vid card...i'll be good. I don't play ut games but i'll definatly try ut2007, for sure :D

14th May 2005, 09:49 PM
Im guessing the minimum specs will be around:
- 2.2Ghz processor (Dual core reccomended)
- 10 Gigs Free HDD space (15 Reccomended)
- Radeon X600XT or GeForce 6600GT mininmum (Radeon R520/equivilient or better reccomended)
- 1 Gig ram (2 Reccomended)
- DVD Drive

This computer should be considered 'slow' by the time UT07 (Gah @ name) will come out

BTW UT07 is being devloped with dual core in mind.

Isn't it more likely to be "Hyperthreading recommended"? Dual core > hyperthreading but HT still can partially do what (theoretically) is asked?

x600 min my arse :lol: i bet it'll still be ok on most cards that ut2004 is - not doing so would limit the potential buyers by a stupid amount - Less buyers = less money fro epic = not gonna happen

Im gonna buy a AMD Ahtlon 64 X2 4800+ DualCore ill already made a reservation but i want more info about the PPU and unreal 2007

I know, just get an xbox 360! That should handle Unreal Tournament 2007

I'd prefer it on PC myself, much more flexability, tweaking and expansion. Also I don't like joysticks :p
Well, I think there shouldn't be THAT much of a leap in requirements, but that's just me.

We nee the system specs of the game because maybe we buy new stuff atm and maybe it will not run when the game is out

The_Head do you maybe know dual core is for gamers to?

Yeh, in the future. No games at the moment gain any performance directly from the second core. The only performance you will see is the game not being slowed down by any background programs.
I'm going to get a Dual core as soon as a can afford a 4800, being able to run 2 or more programs at full speed is going to be v. nice

Quake 3 did SMP.

I'm waiting til' the games are actually released.
Hell I didn't get any upgrades ofr htis comp til' 2k4 was well into it's release phase.

Besides... not only do you have UT2007 to contend with.. but Quake4 (which is looking freakin' amazing) and wasn't there also a new Crytech (teh Farcry peeps) engine in the works as well right now?

It's still way too early to be making threads like this.

Man this whole forum shouldn't have gone up til' like 3-4 months before release.

i duno but im buying a new PC before it comes out with :
dual Athlon 4800+X2s
2GB ram (at least)
2 radeon R850(or near) cards
PPU

as well as raid and what have ya.

should run it i think :D

ha ati a linkin system to? on the new cards? source? cuz nvidia got parnership with Epic so i think it will work better on a nvidia

Quake 3 did SMP.
^^ so it did. :)
That game is old though and single core processers get through it just as quick.
I wasn't really into pc gaming back when the SMP on quake would have been well known. Was it a good performance increase?

@ Lauren
Yes, ATI are working on a linking system. Iirc it will be a connection via the motherboard not over a bridge (like on SLI)
The game being made with NVidia won't necessarily effect performance on ATI cards.

@Boogity
About not adding the forum until nearer the release. They want to build excitement about the game :D
Who knows Epic may be reading this to learn what people want in the game (crosses fingers)

BooGiTyBoY
16th May 2005, 02:06 PM
Well in that case all they are learning is apparently everyone and their brother hates the name/logo, and the sniper rifle sucks...

Most threads on this forum are making me the exact opposite of excited about this game. hehe.

Not true. While Epic DOES have a partnership with nvidia, they also have a partnership with microsoft, and microsoft uses ATI in their xbox 360's, as well as with whatever else they might come out with. So, I'm guessing ATI and Nvidia should come out close to equal on 2007. That is, unless ATI comes out with a kickass revolutionary card that totally ownz nvidia's. GO ATI!

EDIT: oh, and yeah, they have announced a new linking system, that is said to work through the motherboard without a connector cable as well as allow different cards to link together. They've also announced 500 mb cards too.

Agree with LP- to run it well it'll need
a PPU
?2GB - depending on how well memory controllers will have developed
at least a 256k graphics card
A fast dual cored processor - i.e. an AMD

Why on earth would you buy a new intel rig now; since a socket 939 mobo will accept a dual cored chip.

Stalling and saving till socket M2 is probably sensible - and spending on a cheap system now; and investing in the case, PSU, monitor and other eternals.
(a relative term, of course)
