[Equipment Configurations] System Requirement for New Version

We are looking to get a new laptop to run EW. I thought that before we bought one we should ask about the system requirements for the new version. I am cool with it not being out yet but could you tell me if the system specs will change, if you know? Thanks.

We don't have system specs yet, but our developers are designing it to be very lean and quick on almost any computer. They are testing it on a P4 1.6 Ghz computer to make sure they are meeting the lowest common denominator. I normally recommend going with a computer that meets our HD requirements.

Take a look at the laptops on this page.

Rodger, do you think we would be able to run the new EW with 3 screens with this configuration

Board, Asus P8Z77 V Pro
Memory 2x8GB DD3 1600
Processor: I7 3770K
Video Card: On Board (RGB + DVI) + GeForce 9800 GT
HDD: Seagate Barracuda SATA_III with 64MB Cache

WIndows 8 Ultimate
Office 2013
You won't be able to use the onboard graphics card. Get a single video card that can handle three outputs, like the amd radeon hd cards with eyefinity or the nvidia 660 or better. Are you wanting to do foldback, front of house and control screen or control screen and triple wide front of house?
The idea is to have
1 Front House (same projection in 3 different screens via Amplifier)
1 Foldback (Same projection in 2 different Screens via amplifier)
1 Control
You'll want an AMD Eyefinity card that can support up to three monitors or the new NVIDIA Geforce 650 or higher card that can support up to four monitors.
We are looking to switch from our "weak" laptop to a new desktop. I have been tasked with computer requirements. We are currently running EW 2007 I have recommended Going with the HD requirements and upgrading to EW 2009, I want to make sure the HD requirements will be gracious plenty for 2013. Also not sure if I should ask this here or another thread but if we upgrade to 2009 now will that "include" the upgrade to 2013 or should we just wait till 2013 comes out?
thanks Tom
Yes the 2009 HD requirement will do well for the next version.
In short :
3.0 Ghz Intel I5 or I7 processor.
4 or more Gig of memory
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650, 660, 670, 680, 690 / 750, 760, 770, 780, 790 video card.

The upgrade to the 2009 only covers 2009.
The next version will be a $49 upgrade from 2009.
If you skip 2009, it will be $149 to upgrade.
Rodger Thoughts?

I've come up with 3 options
Opt 1
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/MySa ... D=29746347
Pluses Lower cost Windows 7 albeit Home Premium
minuses Marginal PS

Opt 2
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/MySa ... D=18746174
Pluses Slightly faster, more exp slots, slightly larger PS
Minuses cost more Windows

Opt 3
I don't have a complete list but and est around $1,200
Pluses better components Windows 7 Pro larger PS
Minuses highest cost

then on either we would include a video capture card.... I'm finding the viewcast Osprey 260E close to $500 OUCH
I can't see the wishlists that you linked to. You may just have to give me a list of the components or a link to the computer.
I was out of town for the weekend and then busy, HMMM I set them as public not sure why you couldn't see them
OK they decided they want me to build the PC so here is what I am planning on recommending
Would also need the video capture card. We want to be able to eventually stream the video back on the screen and overlay the words.
is there anything else we would need, We have two SS broadcast cameras and switcher.
of course our long term goal is live streaming services

That all looks good to me. I personally don't see the need for the after market cpu cooler. I've always had good luck with the intel coolers. But, it won't hurt anything.
Now that you are close to an actual release, have you nailed down the recommended hardware specs? We would like to make sure that our computer is up to par or needs upgrading.
Here is what we have right now.

recommended hardware.
Windows 7 or 8
3.0 GHz Intel I5 or I7 processor with minimum of 8 GB RAM
Dual output NVIDIA GeForce GTX series graphics card or better. 750, 760. 770... models.
SSD Drive with 1 GB of free space.

Normal (minimum to run)
Windows Vista
2.4 GHz Intel Core2Duo oor i3 with 4 GB RAM
Dual output graphics card.
1 GB free hard drive space

I might have missed this answer but will a schedule built on a Mac be usable on a Windows machine and visa versa?
