Recently the minimum and recommended specs were released for the upcoming expansion to Elite Dangerous.

MINIMUM PC SPECIFICATIONS:

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
  • Processor: Quad Core CPU (4 x 2Ghz)
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 470 / ATI 7240HD (DirectX 11 functionality required)
  • Network Broadband Internet Connection
  • Hard Drive: 8 GB available space

RECOMMENDED PC SPECIFICATIONS:

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770K Quad Core CPU or better / AMD FX 4350 Quad Core CPU or better
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 770 / AMD Radeon R9 280X or better
  • Network Broadband Internet Connection
  • Hard Drive: 8 GB available spaceEliteDangerousCobra.jpg

The differences from the base game for the minimum specs are 6 GB of ram rather then 4 GB , the graphics cards need to be better then the GTX 260 / ATI 4870HD recommended before , 8 GB of hard drive space rather then the 7 GB and the biggest change is the OS now has to be 64 bit.

My own thoughts: With them introducing planetary exploration I knew it would require a bit more power to render, I had actually bought the main game a while back but was waiting for this expansion before I put some serious time into it.
