In an update to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Steam store page, Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games have revealed the minimum system specs for the title. Currently, the game's recommended system specs are still missing-in-action. When they pop up, I'll update this article accordingly.
The full minimum specs on the Steam page are as follows:
- OS: OS: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
- Processor: Intel® CoreTM i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD PhenomTM II X4 810 @ 2.80 GHz or better
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 450 @ 1GB / ATI® Radeon™ HD 5870 @ 1GB or better
- DirectX: Version 11
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Hard Drive: 55 GB available space
- Sound Card: DirectX-compatible
These specs aren't too far off from last year's entry in the franchise, Call of Duty: Ghosts. In fact, the only real change is a boost to the CPU requirements. That's not too surprising, as Advanced Warfare looks visually in the same ballpark, but with an added emphasis on high-jumping, futuristic combat.
Video card-wise, the GeForce GTS 450 and Radeon HD 5870 are pretty long in the tooth. Both options are four years old at this point, which is forever in PC GPU years. At this point, any mid-range videos card you pick up will be able to cover Advanced Warfare's minimum with no issues. On the cheap side, you can pick up an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti or AMD Radeon R7 260X for just under $150. I'd recommend spending a few more dollars to grab Radeon R9 270X ($170-180), and the comparable GeForce card, the GTX 760, costs $20 more than that.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will take up 45 GB on your Xbox One hard drive, but Activision has yet to release file sizes to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, or Xbxo 360.
