Formula One! I never watch TV, sports or believe that the Queen of England is actually real, but even I know about this massive motoring event. It’s the one where the cars go reeeeeeeaaaaaally fast around a track, right? Right!

A new F1 game launches later this month on console and PC. And yes, the PC version will have the best visuals. Hell, it had better, or there’ll be trouble. Here’s what you need to get the game running with minimum specs:

  • OS: Windows 7 64 bit or Windows 8 64 bit
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad @ 3.0GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 @ 3.2GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Intel 4th Gen Iris Graphics or AMD HD5770 or NVIDIA GTS450
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 20 GB available space
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible soundcard

And here’s what Codemasters is recommending for first places finishes in the recommended specs department:

  • OS: Windows 7 64 bit or Windows 8 64 bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 4770 or AMD FX 9370
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Intel 5th Gen Iris Pro or AMD R9 290 or Nvidia GTX970
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Hard Drive: 20 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Direct X compatible soundcard

According to Alessandro, those are some hefty requirements. According to me, I like crayons. As Al enlightened me, those are near the requirements for the PC version of Batman Arkham Knight, minus the unrelenting rage that followed from realising that you may have bought a broken game a few weeks ago.

But seriously, according to Geoff and Al, there is some confusion here, as the specs detail either onboard graphics or a dedicated graphic card to get the best results. Weird. F1 2015 is out on July 10 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. VROOM!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
