In order to run the race at the minimum level of graphics without "brakes", you will need a simple Intel Pentium 4 processor of the initial generation, 1 GB of RAM and a GeFroce 6600 level video card with 128 MB of memory. To install the game, you need 4 GB of free hard disk space and the installed DirectX 9.0 library.
If you set the maximum level of graphics, then for a comfortable gameplay with a frame rate above 30, you will need 2 GB of RAM, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and a 256 GB or higher video card. The amount of hard drive space forinstallation remains the same.
Now consider the system requirements of Burnout Paradise Remastered, which was released in 2018. This version also has two options for requirements.
For the minimum quality of the picture, you will need a computer with a 2-core processor "Intel Core i3" or a similar manufacturer from AMD. You also need 4 GB of RAM and a GT 450 video card or equivalent from AMD with DirectX 11 support. Now you will need 8 GB of hard drive space instead of 4 GB.
Recommended system requirements for Burnout Paradise Remastered are as follows: Intel Core i5 or AMD equivalent, 3.4GHz or faster, 8GB RAM, GTX 750 Ti graphics accelerator or higher.
While the regular version of the racing game can run on Windows XP, the re-release only works on Windows 7 and newer. To set the maximum graphics quality, you will have to play on the "top ten", which supports DirectX 11. So you can enjoy high-resolution textures, effects, lighting and all other changes of the remaster.
