With its system requirements, the open-world shooter Rage 2 is fully in line with the current trend. The game is mainly important the graphics card, the processor plays just as much as the amount of memory rather a subordinate role.
At least Bethesda is using a Ryzen quad-core processor or a Core i5-3570 of the Ivy Bridge generation. The age of dual-core CPUs is thus at least in the official manufacturer's information, which according to the benchmarks on this point rather high, finally finished. Already in the past few months, the biners were no longer recognized by titles from the Triple-A segment.
According to the system requirements, the processor should either support a GeForce GTX 780 or an actually much slower Radeon R9 280. In addition, 8 GB of RAM and 50 GB of hard disk space must also be available in the recommended configuration.
More threads are recommended
For the recommended configuration Bethesda uses a processor with more threads: The Core i7-4770 with Haswell chip also has only four cores, but thanks to hyperthreading can process eight threads at the same time, AMD's Ryzen 1600X, however, has six cores and can Edit 12 threads. For graphics output here a Radeon RX Vega 56 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 needed – so a model of the current middle class.
Special features of the PC version
On the PC, Rage 2 gets additional setup options. These include a FOV slider, options for turning off the HUD, depth of field and motion blur, and changing the crosshairs. In addition, resolutions are supported in the still rare ultra-widescreen 21: 9 and 32: 9 formats. Rage 2 will be released on May 14 for Windows PCs, the PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One.
