CCP is making a few changes to EVE Online’s system requirements starting on next month that will up the minimum system requirements to play the game as it heads into its second decade. Unfortunately, this will mean that those of you using some older hardware may need to make a few upgrades if you want to keep flying with your corporation and allies in EVE.
With the July 10th update, CCP will be adding official support for Windows 8 and the minimum and recommended specs for Windows will changes to the following:
Graphics cards from the Nvidia 6000 and 7000 series may still work but will not be officially supported. Older operating systems such as Windows 95, 98, ME, NT and 2000 are also not supported, but if you haven’t upgraded from those by now you have more serious problems.
Mac specifications will be set a bit higher
CCP also confirmed that Macs with ATI X1600 or ATI X1900 graphics chipset will not be supported but may still run following the changes by disabling the "Load Station Environment" option.
The new system requirements update will be deployed on July 10th, so be sure to read the full spec change list to ensure that you're ready.
