CCP Changing System Requirements for EVE on July 10th

Posted Wed, Jun 19, 2013 by Martuk

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:

  • Minimum: OS: Windows XP Service Pack 2 / Vista / 7 / 8, CPU: Intel Dual Core @ 2.0 GHz, AMD Dual Core @ 2.0 GHz, RAM: XP SP2 – 1 GB / Vista and newer – 2 GB,  AMD Radeon 2600 XT or NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
  • Recommended: OS: Windows 7 / 8, CPU: Intel Pentium i7 Series or AMD X4 @ 2.0 GHz or greater, RAM: 4 GB or higher, AMD Radeon 6790 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or better with at least 1 GB VRAM

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

  • Minimum: OS: Mac OS X 10.6.7, CPU: Intel Dual Core @ 2.0 GHz, RAM: 2 GB, NVIDIA Geforce 320m, Intel HD 3000
  • Recommended: OS: Mac OS X 10.8.2, CPU: Intel Core i Series @ 3.0 GHz or greater, RAM: 8 GB or higher, Video: NVIDIA GeForce 675mx or better with at least 1 GB VRAM

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.
