It's amazing that the minimum graphics memory requirement is higher than the recommended.....and by 510GB.... So, where do I find an HD7870 with 512GB of VRam?

All jokes aside, this is finally an example of a new game that's doesn't have ridiculous specs for once. No i7, no 6+ gb of vram, it's at least under 40gb in size. I'm hopeful for a port that's actually not trash in terms of optimization
 


That is true and something for us to be thankful for. It terms of the system spec needs it makes a lot more sense than the other games lately, and probably does point to it being a much better port.

Nice! My PC is ready! I don't buy many games when the first come out, but I will likely pick this up shortly after release. Been needing a good RPG fix for a while... I mean it isn't like DA2 scratched that itch... terrible game, I really hope that they make up for it with this.

I just hope the game isn't frame locked. Low specs are awesome. Not everyone has a beast of a machine. But it is nice when a dev acknowledges that not all PCs are equal and puts in that special something that pushes boundaries for those of us that can.

Well, I don't know about Electronic Arts but Origin itself says that "Dragon Age: Origins" is going to remain free until October 14th.
 
Um EA is Origin? obviously not the one in the game title but...

It is a nice promotion and a great game. If you can deal with EA:Origin. Supposedly the new one will let you play it the "correct" way, OR like DA2. I will wait for reviews. DA2 was playable for $10 but just lazy development.

Still though. They seem to be willing to make it scale down so hopefully they also put in effort to let it scale up too. Not just stop at the limit of what consoles do. Choice of play style is at least promising.

512GB of VRAM? That does it no GTX 970 for me. Now I shall wait 20 years for this 512GB VRAM GPU or maybe APU depending on how things go in the future. Maybe at that time we all get implant phones to our heads. Thinking text while driving will be the new leading way to get killed on the highway. That and the skynet cars trying to "protect" there owners.

I hate how game developers don't go into details on processor specs. I mean intel specs is a prime example of that, what are they basing those specs on the old core 2 quads..........
 
You are joking right? "casual" gamers would have no interest in this franscise but they are still pushing out mobile companion games. And the min specs are so low a decent 6 year old PC can play

Why is it that hovering over the link in this article shows "https://www.origin.com/en-us/store/free-games/on-the-house", but clicking on it takes you to "http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&jsonp=vglnk_141300151422810&key=984ed3ed6aa9a69986f88d56d10e7616&libId=da8496ba-697c-4f74-8ab0-525f21ac4034&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tomshardware.com%2Fnews%2Felectronic-arts-dragon-age-inquisition%2C27869.html%23react27869&v=1&out=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.origin.com%2Fen-us%2Fstore%2Ffree-games%2Fon-the-house&title=This%20Is%20What%20PC%20Gamers%20Need%20For%20Dragon%20Age%3A%20Inquisition&txt=Dragon%20Age%3A%20Origins" ????

Misrepresenting links is something only scumbags should do. The ever more aggressive advertising on Tom's is going to pay dividends, but not the kind you can take to the bank.

The ATI HD 4870 was a dx10 card, I know because I had one.

Pre-order from EA, what am I retarded?
Just goes to show, programing for next gen consoles has set the bar so low you could run the game on a shoebox with 14 year old hardware!

Yes because we all know that it cant possibly be a good game without cutting edge graphics... I mean wth a RPG game needs awesome graphics and a bad storyline to be good....*sarcasm* for those that cant perceive it well.
