Windows Vista gamers to need 2GB+ of memory?

Posted on Friday, March 24 2006 @ 03:21:09 CET by

We already knew Windows Vista would require a bit more memory but now The Inquirer writes they have spend some time with a Windows Vista machine. The PC had an AMD Athlon 4000+ processor, a GeForce 7800 GTX and 2GB of memory.

They came to the conclusion that to play games with Windows Vista you'll need 2GB of memory or even more!
Here is another cool shot for you. You can clearly see that you need more than 1GB of memory to run the game. Far Cry is not that an intensive game, and we ended up with 1.23 GB page file and you can see that we are running a single instance of Explorer and a task manager.

I have a fear of FEAR the game as it will eat significantly more than Far Cry. We FEAR that you might need even more than 2GB as FEAR of already wants 2GB memory under Windows XP. It works with 1GB as well but it works better with 2GB, and so does the Battlefield 2. We are sure that you will soon be able to buy 4GB gaming kits, at least by the end of the year when Vista gets closer.
The memory industry will be happy when Windows Vista finally arrived in January 2007.
