Operation Flashpoint 2 System Requirements: Bring Multiple Cores

Looks like Codemasters have quietly slipped some system requirements for the upcoming Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising into a post on the game's official boards.

Those expecting an easy run of things will be...wait, were any of you really expecting an easy run of things? New developers or not, this is a Flashpoint game, only now with fancy graphics. And as you can see in the recommended specs, that'll be asking quite a lot of you, thanks very much.

Minimum requirement
Operating system: Windows XP SP2 or later
GPU: DirectX 9.0c GPU: Shader 3.0 (GeForce 7900 GT / 256 MB VRAM or higher)
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
1 GB Memory: 1 GB
8 GB Hard disk: 8 GB
CPU: Dual Core CPU 2 x 2.4 GHz
DVD-ROM DVD drive: Dual Layer DVD-ROM

Recommended System
Operating system: Windows XP SP2 or later
GPU: Shader 3.0 (GeForce 8800 GT / 512 MB VRAM or higher), DirectX 9.0c
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
Memory: 2 GB
Hard disk: 8 GB
CPU: Quad Core CPU
DVD drive: Dual Layer DVD-ROM

Can't think of too many other games on the horizon recommending a quad core system.

[Codemasters, thanks everyone who sent this is in!]
