I am planing on getting a new laptop and I have a few questions related to requirements of UE4:
- What are lowest properties of a graphics card for it to be able to start up UE4?
- Will graphical requirement be lowered in future? (aka. will I be able to start it up with a weaker card in future)
- 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
8 GB RAM
If you have more specific graphics card questions, there may be some answers you can search for here or at forums: https://forums.unrealengine.com/
