Max Payne 3 specs revealed

The adventures of the New York detective Max Payne will continue in the third instalment of the popular game franchise nearly ten years after the release of Max Payne 2. The launch day is coming soon and this is why Rockstar Games – the publisher of the highly expected third person shooter – has been recently leaking information about the game in an attempt to raise the high interest level of gamers even further.

The latest piece of information on Max Payne 3 coming directly from Rockstar concerns the system requirements gamers need to meet in order to play the game. Unfortunately for some folks with older hardware the third instalment of the Max Payne franchise requires some beefy hardware – to just start the game you will need Windows XP SP3 x86/x64, Windows Vista SP2 x86/x64 or Windows 7 SP1 x86/x64, a dual core Intel processor at 2.4 GHz or a dual core AMD CPU at 2.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, GeForce 8600GT 512 MB or Radeon HD 3400 512 MB graphics card, a DirectX 9.0 sound card and whopping 35 GB of free hard drive space. Now if you think these requirements are not too bad take a look at the recommended specs – where you need a Core i7-3930K CPU at 3.06 GHz or one of AMD’s latest FX-8150 processors, 16 GB of RAM and a powerful GeForce GTX 680 card with 2 GB of VRAM or a Radeon HD 7970 3 GB video card. Now that’s some speedy and expensive hardware!

Max Payne 3 is expected to debut next month. The game will support Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
