Can Your PC Run Resident Evil 5?

Capcom may have released a benchmark tool for their upcoming PC port of Resident Evil 5, but some people don't like benchmark tools. They prefer raw specs. Specs like these!

So without further ado, here are the system requirements (along with recommended specs) for the game. Note that we have our own benchmarks for the game: we require at least two zombies on dirtbikes, but recommend at least four.

Oh, and if you're wondering, the game's out on September 15.


    Wow, I thought the specs would be SO much higher on this one. Does that mean that the future download content be free?

      Um... Why would DLC be free just because the game is less demanding on hardware than expected?

      I'm not following you on that one.

    Wow, even my 3 year old mac could handle that. Does that mean that the future download content be free?

    I've played this before on 360 does that mean my dlc will be free on pc too?
