Splinter Cell: Conviction PC System Requirements

Those wanting to play Splinter Cell: Conviction on their PCs have to be mindful of two things: 1) the system requirements; and 2) Ubisoft's new internet DRM.

Thanks to a listing posted on VG247, we now have the full details on what it takes to run the next chapter of Sam Fisher's adventures.

Recommended specs:* Supported OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 * Processor: 1.8 GHz Intel Core2 Duo or 2.4 GHz AMD Athlon X2 64 * RAM: 1.5 GB Windows XP / 2 GB Windows Vista, Windows 7 * Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 9.0c–compliant video card (512 MB recommended) (see supported list*) * Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c–compliant sound card * DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c * DVD-ROM: DVD-ROM drive * Hard Drive Space: 10 GB * Peripherals Supported: Mouse, keyboard, headset, 12-button gamepads with analog sticks * Internet Connection: Broadband Internet connection*Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:* NVIDIA GeForce 7800 / 7900 / 8 / 9 / GTX series * ATI RADEON X1800 / X1900 / HD 2000 / HD 3000 / HD 4000 / HD 5000 series * Laptop versions of these cards may work but are NOT supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game.Note: A permanent high speed internet connection and creation of a Ubisoft account are required to play this video game at all times and to unlock exclusive content. Such content may only be unlocked one single time with a unique key. You must be at least 13 to create a Ubisoft account.

 Sadly, even though a demo is hitting Xbox 360 gamers today, PC gamers won't be treated to any try-before-you-buy action.

    LMAO at permanent internet requirement to play the game. Yeah this won't be solved within an hour of release. LMAO at these companies that stay failing with DRM.

    Also why bother playing this in the PC over the 360? It's in DX 9.

    So regardless of the DRM, I'll be playing it one way or another.

    Being an Intel fanboy, I always think that is funny.

    DRM is killing gaming.he joy of owning what you payed for is being flushed down the toilet.

    better textures, higher resolution, better framerate. i could probably give a dozen more reasons if you'd like?

    It must have sucked to be you in the P4 days. Also that's original athlon it's talking about. (though I dont know how fast a athlon II would have to be to match the same...)

    I saw the trailer for this like 5 years ago. Wtf, I thought it had been released. Ubisoft has been taking their time...
