It’s been a good 4 years since I’ve upgraded the old rig… so that was what-- Alpha 2.0 still being on the horizon?
Anyway, my current system looks like it isn’t doing quite as well when I look at the telemetry from RSI. It even appears I may be outside the minimum specs.
The rig upgrades look like they may need to be on the GPU and CPU, as well as an additional stick (or two) of DDR4 RAM.
Current GPU: Sapphire NITRO Radeon R9 390 (8GB)
Current CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.50 GHz
So, I have a couple things I need to consider before I even think about planning an upgrade.
First-- Is the telemetry on RSI a load of bullshit? Or is it an actual representation of what the community is running to support such a hardware intensive game.
Second-- Is timing going to make more sense later on as SQ42 hits Beta (Q32020 as of now)? My fear is sinking too much cash into hardware that the game itself will make obsolete by release (which I have clearly done once already).
Lastly- Any recommendations on hardware? I know there are higher end intel processors out there which will support the game, but am I losing out by not even looking at AMD? Other good GPUs out there that will help to run the game well?
Since this isn’t my greatest area of expertise, I always appreciate advice.
Thanks again fellas.
