a little birdie told me ;) that one system requirment that should not be overlooked, especially when your wanting ultra settings is the cpu's frequency, a 2-core at 3Ghz will do better in Rift than a 4-core at 2.0Ghz

So they won't be taking advantage of multi-threading? That seems like a poor choice for a next generation engine.

That VRAM requirement is also a bit high, are those recommended settings or minimum? I don't want to have to replace my GTX260 just so I can play on native resolution.

Multi-threading is used but they will "so far" break it up to have audio, networking e.t.c on different cores and the graphics thread will be the clincher as it probably based on one of the cores by itself.

Also remember that the ram requirement means ram on-top of what it takes to run your computer.

and thirdly, Trion has not officaly released system requirements but these are a good ballpark figure for medium to medium-low settings.

Thanks for the inside scoop Bohtauri. Awaiting early next year to max out my pc to run both Rift and ES:V in all its glory.

RAM is easily upgraded, I meant the dedicated video ram, since that is mostly used for increasing resolution, and most cards still only have 512-1GB, which had me wondering if those were recommended or minimum specs to go by.

You might find ES:V to be easily maxed out already, since it's reportedly going to be using the gamebryo engine again, based very much on what they've done with the current fallout games.

Abigale(The senior community manager) posted the official system specs yesterday on the forums. I'm really glad I built a new rig this spring. Rift seems like such a beautiful game and I wanna experience it at it's best.

Is there any foreseeable plans for support with DX10 or even DX11 in the near or distant future?

Wonder if a GTX 260M could run this. Any thoughts anyone?

Forgive my ignorance, but it requires a sound card? My computer has on-board sound, will that be okay?

it doesn't require a sound card in the meaning of an independent sound card. Sound cards are usually built into the motherboard. an independent sound card wouldn't hurt for sure. But I play with the built-in one and get good sound.
