The minimum PC Specs for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 have been revealed. If you are running on an older machine then it may be time for an upgrade.
As well as not supporting Windows XP, the PC version will also reuse the same engine as the original Black Ops. Despite this though, it seems Treyarch is still quite proud of what it has achieved.
"We've improved the way the engine handles multiple threads. Additionally, we moved the engine from DX9 to DX11. The DX11 API is leaner than DX9 and requires less CPU time to do the same amount of work. It is important to point out that this benefits the entire range of supported GPUs, not just DX11 hardware. We have also added more 'quality vs performance' options than ever before so you can customize your experience to either run faster or to satisfy your taste in eye candy," Treyarch said on its official forum.
"Black Ops II PC features enhanced lighting, shadows, antialiasing, bloom, depth of field, ambient occlusion, and other enhanced effects that are still in the works. And the game can run at higher resolutions and higher framerates on the PC."
Here's a list of the minimum PC Specs:
- OS: Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7
- CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHz
- Memory: 2GB for 32-bit OS or 4GB for 64-bit OS
- Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512 MB or ATI Radeon HD 3870 512 MB
