Rockstar Games have unveiled the official system requirements for the PC version of Max Payne 3, and they’ve turned out to be surprisingly low – boasting “additional advanced graphics options” and optimised to run across a “wide range of PC setups”, the game asks only for a dual-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz (Intel) or 2.6 GHz (AMD) and a GeForce 8800 GT or Radeon HD 3400 at minimum.
The PC version of the game features full DirectX 11 support, including tessellation, but it remains to be seen whether the game suffers from the same optimisation and installation issues as L.A. Noire, described here. The recommended requirements ask for an Intel i7 3930K 6 Core x 3.06 GHz or AMD FX8150 8 Core x 3.6 GHz, and a 2 GB GeForce 680 GTX or 3 GB Radeon HD 7970.
Additionally, the game wants a minimum of 2 GB of RAM and a recommended of 16 GB, plus 35 GB of hard disk space (which might not be record-setting, but is still amazingly high). You can check out some new screenshots from the PC version of the game below, and you can find out more about Max Payne 3, which is slated for launch on PC on the 1st of June, on the game’s official website here.
