The officially release of the third installment in the BioShock series is slowly creeping in on us. While it’s still a couple months away, it’ll be here before we know it, and Irrational Games has released PC specification requirements for the new game, BioShock Infinite. This will give you a little bit of time to save up some cash and buy a new graphics card, because you may need it.
Minimum requirements are actually quite respectable, and we can’t imagine most PC gamers will have a hard time running the upcoming game. BioShock Infinite requires at least an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2.7 GHz, with 2GB of RAM, and 20GB of hard drive space available. As far as a video card goes, at least an ATI Radeon HD 3870, NVIDIA 8800 GT, or Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics will be good enough.
Recommended requirements call for a bit more prowess. You’ll need a “quad-core processer”, 4GB of RAM, 30GB of hard drive space available, and at least an AMD Radeon HD 6950 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560. Even the recommended requirements aren’t too bad, and we’re guessing that any hardcore PC gamers already have a tricked-out PC that can run this.
As far as PC controls and other options, Irrational Games says that you’ll have all of the traditional options to choose from in the settings, like changing key combinations and adjusting levels for mouse sensitivity. The game will also support AMD Eyefinity, NVIDIA Surround, and Matrox TripleHead2Go, and gamers will have separate controls available for aspect ratio, resolution, and display mode.
