Not sure if 5k will be my goal, we have suffered with games grinding to a crawl for so long it will be interesting to not have that as our one goal we want achieved from an RTS haha, but yeah I'm looking forward to some epic coop games verses multiple ai and seeing how it scales. Ill be playing on my current i7 machine but will no daubt invest in new hardware once this games released and we start to see benchmark tests so I know what direction to go with the new rig, and it will be nice for the game to take advantage of that investment for once.
I know you have to cater to all types so that anyone can play, but what made sup com so interesting is they set out to make a game that ran best in the fastest machines, rather than pandering to those still rocking old kit. I honestly would just buy a new rig than the game dumb itself down for me.
Just curious there's a lot of talk on dx12 and mutliple cores talking to multiple gpus at the same time and nitrous allowing this, how does memory come into this equation and how big an effect will it have on this game. Supreme commander had a memory limit, limited by 32bit applications if my memorys correct, something to do with large file addressing or something. But basically I could have 12gb of ram and it wouldn't use it, In fact the exe was always restricted to 1gb in size I think .
just as example I was staring at hardware reviews the other day (as you do) and I saw most mobos nowadays taking up to 32gb of ram with the price for that ram in a decent speed not being to bad, so I'm just curious how having a machine with that amount might affect performance, bearing in mind this is current tech, and not in a years time tech. Some of the ucs blade servers I work on at work have 196gb of ram and sometimes 2 or 3 times that. So it's potentially going to keep heading that way in the gaming world eventually #crazytimes
Also if you are penning ideas for new games get oxide games and there nitrous engine to remake sins rebellion in nitrous haha I would love to see what that would do on nitrous #mentals
