Particularly interesting is the fact that 3GB of GDDR5 Video Memory is reserved for graphics, which is quite a significant figure, considering that the game is rendered at 1080p with a post-process anti-aliasing solution. In contrast, it’s rare for modern PC games running at 1080p to exceed 2GB of VRAM requirement. It should be interesting to see how the arrival of next-generation platforms affects the PC gaming environment.

Killzone: Shadow Fall is currently slated for release alongside the PS4. For more on the game, keep an eye out for Sony’s E3 press conference on June 10.
