BioShock is quickly becoming one of the best gaming franchises in PC history. Despite only have 3 games to its name thus far, the BioShock series and its creators have crafted a memorable experience out of each one.
And in the new BioShock Infinite game, players are taken out of Rapture and into the sky in a new type of utopia project. The graphics are colorful and jawdroppingly beautiful. But here’s the real question: is your PC fast enough to run it?
-Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
-Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz CPU/AMD Athlon X2 2.7GHz
-2GB of RAM
-20GB of hard drive space
-ATI Radeon 3870 or later/Nvidia 8800GT or later/Intel HD 3000 Integrated Graphics
-512MB of video card memory
Those system requirements seem really low. But keep in mind they’re the absolute minimum system requirements needed to run the game. Still, with the Intel HD 3000 onboard graphics card being able to run BioShock Infinite, that seems like a surprisingly well-optimized game.
Nevertheless, we recommend having at least 1GB of video card memory, 4GB of RAM, and a quad-core processor in order to play BioShock Infinite the way it was meant to be played.
