[DE]Danielle Posted September 7, 2022 Share Posted September 7, 2022 (edited) PSA: PC Minimum Supported Specs Changes Coming in 2023 In 2023 (specific date TBD), we will be changing our minimum specs to require the following CPU features: SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2*. *Your CPU must support SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2. These are CPU-instructions that were first added to processors like the Intel i7 860 (Nehalem microarchitecture released in 2008) or the AMD FX-4170 (Bulldozer microarchitecture released 2011). As you can see, even computers that are a decade old support these features so you probably have nothing to worry about! If you’re still rocking a vintage machine that doesn’t support these instructions, you’ll see a warning in the Warframe launcher so you know it’s time for an upgrade. These changes will finally let the PC version of the game get optimizations we’ve had on the Xbox and PlayStation versions for years and will make it easier to do more optimizations, since all developers will be using them all day every day (as opposed to only when testing on some consoles). In true minspec PSA style, we want to give our PC Tenno a very early heads up. While 2023 is still a ways away, we don’t want any surprises when it comes time to implement these changes. In addition to the Launcher warning, we will post another PSA as a follow up to this one once we have a date to share of the updated minspec. Thank you, Tenno! ----- 03/03/2023 Edit: As announced on Devstream #168, The Duviri Paradox is coming in April - and so are the above changes to the minimum spec requirements on PC!
