CPU System Requirements to Change

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jan 17, 2011  | Comments

CPU System Requirements to Change - EVE Online -

With the EVE Online: Incursion expansion, the computer specifications will change slightly. CPUs unable to run the SSE2 Instruction Set (Streaming SIMD Extensions 2) will no longer be able to run EVE. During beta testing, it was discovered that SSE2 had been updated and that systems running the prior version have been rendered incompatible.

We've looked at hardware trend reports and the general status of the market and this obsolete generation of CPUs in desktop computers and gaming rigs is nearly extinct. We estimate that around 0.3% of the playerbase will be affected. We have, therefore, decided to not let this block the deployment of Incursion 1.1.0. An info message that pops up when you start the client on a non-SSE2 capable machine has been added for clarification. We urge everyone who encounters this specific error to submit a petition to our customer support department. We will have updates on the next steps we take with this issue immediately after the weekend but we wanted to get a blog up ASAP to inform everyone about the issue.
