    Looks like the i7-2600k 4.4GHZ ,20GB RAM, and R9 295×2 system is reaching EOL me thinks. Ultra with 2K virtual plasma? We’ll see..

    First of all, I guess that without magical DX12 this game would required Core i7-Extreme or even two for ultra! This is going to be a very bad port, I assume.

    Second, there IS NO AMD equivalent to i7 4790.

    Minimum OS Windows 10? I’m out.

    “Remedy has also clarified that the Ultra specs are for 4K resolution on PC.”

    Do you have a source for that ? Looking at the tweets, the guy replied ‘no comment’ to the 4k question.
