Blizzard releases real specs for Starcraft II beta


Blizzard's released the real system specs for the beta of Starcraft II.

The list, which was revealed on the company's US support site, is below.

  • Windows XP SP3/Vista SP1/Windows 7
  • 2.2 Ghz Pentium IV or equivalent AMD Athlon processor
  • 1 GB system RAM/1.5 GB for Vista and Windows 7
  • 128 MB NVidia GeForce 6600 GT/ATI Radeon 9800 PRO video card
  • 1024x768 minimum display resolution
  • 4 GB free hard space (Beta)
  • Broadband connection

No specs for Mac though, considering there is no beta for it.

The beta is coming some time "later this month" according to Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime last week. The FAQ for it leaked yesterday.

It's close, kids. Very, very close: we can sense it.
