System requirement related questions

I am planing on getting a new laptop and I have a few questions related to requirements of UE4:

  1. What are lowest properties of a graphics card for it to be able to start up UE4?
  2. Will graphical requirement be lowered in future? (aka. will I be able to start it up with a weaker card in future)
  3. Will there ever be a 32bit version of UE4


You will need a powerful setup to get started developing with UE4 right now. Here’s what we recommend:

Desktop PC or Mac
Windows 7 64-bit or Mac OS X 10.9.2 or later
Quad-core Intel or AMD processor, 2.5 GHz or faster
NVIDIA GeForce 470 GTX or AMD Radeon 6870 HD series card or higher

If you have more specific graphics card questions, there may be some answers you can search for here or at forums:
