We’re approaching the season of Every Game Release. You can tell because we’re currently in the season of Every Set of System Specs Appearing Online, and Call of Duty: Ghosts is no exception to this.
Nvidia have posted up a set of Call of Duty: Ghosts specs which are a wee bit higher than those of last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (as spotted by DSOGaming). While the processor requirements have remained the same, everything else has had a rather large jump, presumably to accommodate the higher graphical fidelity offered by the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.
The specs are as follows:
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
RAM: 6 GB RAM
HDD: 50 GB HD space
Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card
Internet: Broadband connection and service required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet connection required for activation.
Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780
No word as to what ATI users will require for Recommended performance. Then again, this is Nvidia’s site. I’m not sure they really want to “recommend” a competitor’s card.
Two points worthy of note: first, this is another game requiring a 64-bit operating system. Second, that’s a hell of a leap from BlOps 2. While the processor requirements are identical, last year’s Call of Duty only needed 2GB of RAM (4GB, with a 64-bit OS) and a GeForce 8800 GT as minimum. Going from an 8800 GT to a 550 Ti is quite something.
Also: a GTX 780 as recommended? Good grief. I hope by “recommended” they mean “maximum.”Related to this article
