Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Computer specifications for Infiltrator and Showdown

I have a computer with the following specs: Intell(R) Core(TM) i7 - 2600 CPU @ 3.40 Ghz 3401, 4 Cores, 8 logical processors NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 12 gb ram

I have attempted to create projects from Infiltrator and Showdown demos and have been unable to get past 95% before it maxes out my cpu and ram usage.

What size system would I have to have in order to comfortably work with those demos and related/similar projects?

Product Version: UE 4.9

Hey Graphics4Life,

Your specs are all pretty solid, aside from your GPU. A GTX 770 or 9 series card will handle these scenes and projects pretty well. I just recently upgraded my GTX 650 Ti to a GTX 960, and see a huge difference in performance. Your RAM could also be improved to 16 GB or even 32 if you are feeling crazy! :)

Thanks Andrew for the reply. I'm looking at upgrading too but researching how far I will go with it. As far as graphic cards go I would imagine that that just because one works well for 4k gaming doesn't mean that it is optimum for heavy game developing. There are a lot of similar cards out there but what specs should I be looking for that will help most with this type of work? Within the 900 series, Titan X, etc? Two better than one, etc?
