phoca_thumb_l_thesimsmedieval_twitter_14On the The sims 3 italian facebook page the staff published system requirement for The Sims Medieval... let's go read them! Just keep in mind that these are minimum requirement to run the game.

These requirement are pretty similar to The Sims 3, as producers told some times ago during The Sims Town Hall event. So, if you already run The Sims 3, you should run The Sims Medieval too.
Requirements cite P4 processor, this is a single core processor. If you have a laptop or a dual or a quad core the value is different. If you have a Centrino processor on your laptop the equivalent value is about the double, if you have a dual core the equivalent is x2, quad core is x4.

In add, on our pictures gallery related to The Sims Medieval, you can find some new screens!

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly.

Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants may default to settings that are higher than what would be optimal for them. Graphics settings can be lowered to improve performance.

NVIDIA ION computers require at least 2 GB RAM.

The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista.

7300, 7600
8600, 8800
