The recommend system requirements says a quad core CPU and in the example given, there is a dual core i3 :p Well maybe hyper threading does come into picture. Anyway, looking forward to this game.

I've asked this before without an answer so here goes again.

Does anyone know at what resolution they use for each?

Example:

Minimum - 720p

Recommended - 1080p

Hi-Performance - 1440p

720p for minimum? that sounds alittle bit too high.
But then again, they did ask for pretty decent cards for it. The 5770 is a very good card though. It makes me wonder if the game will come in DX11 only.

The MP alpha was poorly. I would get barely 30 FPS. People were even getting as low as 15FPS with mid-high range systems.

We won't know until the game is out. Game companies are notorious for giving us unrealistic requirements, so take this thread with a pinch of salt.

Taking a conservative guess. The CPU portion, definitely. The GPU portion (6550) is pretty weak so my guess is 720p at low/medium/low settings, and no anti aliasing.
