Installation Size and Multithreading

8 posts in this topic

In the specs it says 5Gb install size.

Is this all that is needed, or is any extra space required for decompression / temp / stuff?

I'm hoping to make a 5Gb RAMdrive to install this baby on - need to make sure it's big enough.

Is the engine mostly IO or CPU or Video bound? I can't alter the specs of my laptop, and I really want to get it running as smooth as possible. How tweakable is it? Is it Largeaddress aware? Will it use RAM above 4Gb? Is it fully multi-threaded for 4 hyperthreading cores?

Will my 2Gb 5850 (only ddr3) burn up and die?

download size is 1.5GB (source: here)

no idea if that's uncompressed or not, nor the full file size if it is.

Im pretty sure the minimum/recommended specs stated would be for the beta only, a lot can happen between now and September

5GB is an estimated for installed full version

1,3Gb is setup/download file size

1,8GB is beta install filesize

Will the beta allow multiple installations from a single S/N?

I have 4 or 5 different systems I'd like to test this out on, various CPU / Video combos.
