That’s recommended specs, it’ll run on much less but that’s what’s recommended for good performance. It’s unclear how well it would run on the 750ti there might be someone with that card that has posted their performance but I would think that it wouldn’t be too bad.
I use the GTX 750ti in my home rig and have had no problems with it what so ever. There may be some others using it as well, but from my experience I’ve been fine.
My home rig:
I’m not using fully recommended specs. I have a dual core processor with 16gb ram and the 750 ti. A quad core would definitely help in some of my compile and build times but for my personal and side projects I’ve not noticed anything that would keep me from doing what I’ve wanted to thus far.
I have access to a machine with an Ivy cpu and a 750ti and have to say that it’s ok for developing and trying out, but you’d hit fps limits real fast on Epic settings. It’s a Gainward Golden sample model that comes overclocked out of the box and is further overclocked by a notch, so it’s definitely one of the faster versions you can get. Most of the demos from the marketplace drop below 20fps at times. Tested the recent landscape demo on it too yesterday and looking over the whole landscape with the ice pond in fov, fps dropped down to 16 in 2560x1080 res.
If you’re planning to develop for Oculus I can’t recommend using it as you will have a very hard time having constant 60 or 75 fps even with modest screen percentage settings.
I primarily use a 780ti and things work a lot smoother with that obviously (although still hitting limits with VR).
If it’s not urgent I’d wait for the 800 series and get a 860 which will be much closer or maybe even on level with a 780.
thanks kklors, in my country gtx 550 ti cards are still available, priced about 77-97 euro, while gtx 750 ti are about 100-129 euro.
i don’t think i’ll need more than 30 fps for animation workflow tests.
the UE4 (the Pre-Alpha at least) runs on nearly any Computer.
Hell it even runs on my 5 Year old Laptop smooth in High-Details:
Processor: Intel(R) Core™2 Quad CPU Q9000 @ 2.00GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M (The one with the G98-Chip)
And the FPS is smooth and no lag on High-Settings.
It is like every Unreal Engine Game. It don t need much Power too look very good.
thanks braverlumpl! that’s my point.
i understand gaming enthusiasts are willing to invest on high end hardware specs to get an excellent gaming experience.
but this is not my case; i just need to research animation workflow in UE4, so i’ll choose whichever cheaper card with lower power consumption too.
my current graphics card is a 4-year radeon 5670 hd; it’s time to upgrade it with budget in mind.
