Resident Evil 5 PC Specs

A few weeks ago, Capcom announced that the PC version of Resident Evil 5 will hit retail shelves on September 15 in North America, and September 18 in Europe. The new version will include a new and improved mercenaries mode with "three times as many" enemies, new costumes, and Nvidia's GeForce 3D Vision technology (wireless 3D Vision glasses sold separately). To promote the game's 3D goodness, Nvidia uploaded a stereo 3D tech demo (with benchmark) right here.

  • wow i'm no Nvidia fan but doesn't it seem strange that 6800 can still run this game but you need an HD Series from ati?

  • The PC version will have more shadows/shaders and there for require more power to drive RE5.

    also don't forget the 7800 doesnt support 3d Vision either.
