Sorian, Associate Content Engineer for Gas Powered Games, has tested the game on his home computer now and even though he said that the game is far from being polished, it ran very fluently on his system despite it really not being a new one.
  • OS: Windows XP
  • CPU: Pentium D 3.2 GHz
  • Memory: 2GB RAM
  • Graphics: ATI X1900
Furthermore, it has been reported that Gas Powered Games have been testing the game on a system as low as a GeForce 6800/ 1GB RAM/ 2.8 GHz single core.

After seeing the system requirements for the game I was curious just how accurate they are. So, I built a retail build on my machine to try it out. It ran at +10 sim speed from start to finish, but I have a Core i7 machine with 6 GB of ram, so it wasn't really a accurate test and Gordon called me on it. So, he took his FA dev machine, synced up to the latest build, and ran a 1v1 on Seton's Clutch. As expected, the performance was awful. So, we synced up SC2 (which does not have his or my optimization changes yet) and ran a 1v1 on a similar map. Smooth as glass. We even turned the graphics up to high, which did cause some graphics lag because of his old video card, but sim speed was full on the whole time.Source: Sorian's Blog
