Along with the announcement of the game’s release date, Relic Entertainment also revealed the hardware requirements for Dawn of War III.
The requirements are somewhat unspecified on a few things. For instance, the CPU section doesn’t list a specific Intel or AMD processor, although it does mention a specific clock speed. If you want more information on the which CPU fits the game’s requirements, check out our CPU hierarchy chart. In addition, there is no mention of storage space.
|Dawn of War III||Minimum||Recommended|
|CPU||Intel Core i3 (3.0 GHz) or AMD equivalent||Intel Core i5 (3.0 GHz) or AMD equivalent|
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 AMD Radeon HD 6950||Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 AMD Radeon HD 7970|
|RAM||4 GB||8 GB|
|OS||Windows 7 (64-bit)||Windows 10 (64-bit)|

Always excited for a new Dawn of War or CoH, although can't help but be a little disappointed they didn't move the engine to DX12/Vulkan.Reply
Could someone just let me know what the AMD equivalent to a 3.0GHz i3 is? I have an FX-4170 clocked at 5.0GHz, but as most of you know, the FX series tends to punch well below its weight compared to Intel.Reply
To ROMEOREJECT, a core i3 like cpu is any of the follwing AMD cpus: "FX-6350, 4350,Phenom II X6 1100T BE, 1090T BE, Phenom II X4 Black Edition 980, 975". I think your overclocked FX-4170 will be enaugh.Reply
Holy hell, you've got to be kidding me. Question to anyone thinking of buying one of these beast: Even if you think you'll get 10 more years of reliable operation out of this unit compared with established industry PSUs (even though it's not warranted as such), do you think CM/Murata or even another experienced PSU OEM will not invent anything better in the next 10 years? Because even if you think "Made in Japan" and "build quality" are going to give that extra life, the math just doesn't add up. Buy a leading 1000/1200/1500 watt unit today for ONE FIFTH the cost, let it burn in 10 years, then buy 2 more of those (or whatever else has been invented/improved upon in the meantime), and you're still $400 ahead (not including the gain from inflation).Reply
I guarantee if you slapped some LED lights on an AX1200i, you'd sell more of those units at $1,000 than this sucker. Unreal.
Much obliged, thanks!19395494 said:To ROMEOREJECT, a core i3 like cpu is any of the follwing AMD cpus: "FX-6350, 4350,Phenom II X6 1100T BE, 1090T BE, Phenom II X4 Black Edition 980, 975". I think your overclocked FX-4170 will be enaugh.
