Just wondering if UE4 can run on a computer with 4gb ram, the minimum spec says 8gb. I suppose I’m asking if it will stick up an error dialog box in my face along the lines of: “sorry you need 8gb, please close application, you can’t use it” or whether it will run but may be slightly unstable?
Right now, I have a PC with 4gb (maximum mem upgrade currently possible - yes it’s old, I know!) and latest macbook air with 4gb (again no upgrade possible in near future).
I’m not going to make the next Killzone so level complexity would likely target midrange PCs (eg: my current PC) and mobiles.
Just buy as much ram as you can afford, I had 16GB but found my self running out when I was using UDK, photoshop and 3dsmax all at the same time so I upgraded to 32GB, got a good deal aswell ?140 for G skill rip jaws 1866mhz ram
Thanks Linkinworm/DieByZero, that’s good to know. My PC has a ******board with a 4gb max capacity (2004) so that means shopping for a new ******board/CPU/memory if I want to increase the memory. PC still runs latest games fine with 2 GTX670s though. And the mac is not upgradable unfortunately.
edit: didn’t realise the alternative word for “mum” was a swearword!
Yeah I’m running the editor with 5.5GB RAM and it seems to be running smooth for me.
Where you may face slow-downs is when you want to build lighting, or it may not even build lighting at all if it’s a large level.
I use 16gb. I haven’t had a problem with ram or cpu AMD 8-core 3.8ghz, but my video card, a GTX 480 was overheating and shutting down my whole computer. I switched to a 750ti, which uses a lot less power, doesn’t get as hot and it’s been running fine.
Hello everyone. Maybe this will be off topic but UE4 lags little to me when I add light to the scene. These are my specs:
Intel core i5 4440 @ 3.1 GHz 4cores
8GB DDR3 RAM
AMD Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3
UE4 specs require at least HD 6870. Do I have now problem with my graphic card or it’s something else? Greetings!
