Star Citizen uber specs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my friend has got me to play star citizen.

unfortunately my computer is a 

4790k

1080ti

16gig of ram.

500gig ssd.

 

Do I need to update my ram to play at uber settings???

I initially passed on ryzen due to being minimal upgrade but investing in 16gb of ddr3 seems wasteful at this point in time.

 

I dont play games on low settings...

Unless you have a million tabs open in the background, 16gb should be plenty of ram.

I wouldn't bother upgrading anything to play it until the game has an actual release.

Actually -

1. there is no uber setting and to be honest the graphics settings don't do much at all

2. as of now your fps are network bound so just throwing more hardware at it doesn't help

3. the current RAM usage is about 8 GB so as long as you have Chrome closed you're probably fine

4. 3.0.1 is the most unplayable patch we ever had so I'd suggest waiting 4 weeks 6 weeks for 3.1

@kiwibacon Your setup is more than enough to play star citizen at highest settings. The current alpha has performance issues that stem from bugs, memory leaks, server-side issues and lack of optimization... since it's an alpha. :)

 

You may experience stuttering, framerate drops and occasional memory overloads, but those are not your system's fault. We are alpha testers... we may occasionally have fun in SC, but our main purpose is to point these things out and provide telemetry data so they can be fixed.

The game uses about 14GB at maximum so 8GB is a bottleneck but it wont affect fps as textures can load in at lower quality first and after some time refresh.

I run Star Citizen using the following hardware:

  • Z77 chipset
  • i5-3570K @ 4.5 GHz
  • 16 GB DDR3-2400 @ CL10
  • GTX 1070 @ 2050 MHz
  • SC installed on a SATA III SSD
  • ...on a 2560x1080 @ 144 Hz display

In 'the persistent universe' ('Crusader'), I get whatever the current server-limited maximum is that other players are able to achieve; usually up to 40-45 FPS on a full server, but as high as offline mode performance when there are very few people and there is very little activity on the server.

 

In 'offline modes' such as in a hangar or in smaller online areas such as in Arena Commander matches, I get frame rates ranging from 90-110~ at "Very High" -- but as previously stated, the current graphics settings have very little in-game effect either on visuals or performance. The biggest changes you can make are to turn off SSDO and motion blur.

 

Your PC is ready to go for current and future releases.
