Mass Effect Andromeda official requirements were released earlier and people were shocked to learn that the game seemed to be very demanding as you could only run the game at 720p with the low preset with a 2GB Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon 7750 and Intel Core i5 3570.
Talking about the recommended specifications, it was interesting to see that the recommended hardware was only able to run the game at 30 FPS.
Keeping that in mind one, would wonder what would be the advantage of playing the game on a PC when you will be getting console like performance? The hardware you will need is a Core i7 4790, 16GB of RAM, and a 3GB GTX 1060 or 4GB RX 480.
It seems that the Mass Effect Andromeda official requirements are not as accurate as we might think. According to Mass Effect Andromeda producer Michael Gamble:
No, I mean, it depends on your machine, and it’s really hard to benchmark individual machines. We’re just saying that that’s the bare minimum that it’ll run at. It’ll probably run at higher than that for most of the game, it’s just really hard to be specific about it. We just want to do the minimum and we want to do the recommended. The recommended, at least on my machine at home, I have a 1060, I run at higher than 30 [fps] for the majority of the game. But it’s hard to actually to say, ‘This is the specs, and this is exactly what you’ll run at.
This might come as a relief to some people, myself included being someone that has a GTX 1060. I think that we will only be able to tell the performance when we have real numbers and we will have to wait until then.
Let us know what you think about Mass Effect Andromeda and this new statement regarding the hardware requirements.
