In a very short – yet to the point – entry on the NFS blog, the minimum specs required to run Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on a PC were posted. And, in an effort to keep it just as short and just as relevant as the source, we won’t break it, so here goes:
Operating System: Windows XP SP 3 (32-64 bits) / Windows Vista (32-64 bits) / Windows 7 (32-64 bits)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHZ or AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4GHZ
