Report RSS Hardware requirements for ME:R

Posted by on

We're proud to give you some information about our release. These information article concerns the hardware requirements. The mod won't work without the Shader 2.0 enhancement. Indeed, the Advanced Light Design shader (made by me, Erayser) is needed to play the mod.

Minimal configuration
PIV 2,4 GHz
1Gb of RAM
3D Card 256Mb - Pixel Shader 2.0 (Minimum)
1Gb free disk space
Available for XP/Vista/Seven &+ and MacOSX

Recommended configuration
Intel Core 2 2,6 Ghz or AMD equivalent
ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT or NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT - Pixel Shader 3.0
1Gb free disk space
1.5Gb of Ram
Available for XP/Vista/Seven &+ and MacOSX

Please notice that "&+" means "latest versions".

If you don't know exactly what mean these configurations, here you have some examples:

  • If you can run Mass Effect 2 only at normal graphic settings, you can play at ME:R for, mostly, a decent performance. You won't be able to play at 60fps with important battles however. In this case, we can say that this point may concern normal computers.
  • If you can play at Mass Effect 3 at highest settings, you can play at ME:R without any problem, even if there is more than 50 cruisers. Please notice, it depends of your processor. You don't need an High-End computer to play with 50 cruisers, just a good configuration.

Ok everyone.
That was Erayser,
Thanks for reading.
