Of course it will need a discrete graphics card! Good luck even getting the game's start icon to show with integrated...

What I want to now as this doesn't really state is this actual cores or threads. Because i7's have 4 cores but 8 processing threads and the higher end 980x has 6 cores with 12 threads.

So is this just support for 8 threads like I assume or 8 actual cores which with hyper threading could be 16 threads?

I think from a software perspective you deal with threads, not cores so this would be 8 threads.

It's too overhyped....it's just graphics, can it depict human emotion?...Developers need to stop boosting the high-end natures and requirments of graphical powers on PCs!

This is pretty cool, I thought it would be a while before 8 cores would be supported by any game.

maybe my next PC will be 8 cores (probably 6 though).

Finally some good news for my i7 980x @ 4.44 ghz , oh ye and my discrete gtx 480s in sli.
But I'm not convinced untill its bechmarked. Crytek said cryengine 2 support 4 cores at launch but only supports 2. More games comming out support quad cores (bfbc2, mafia 2, dragon age for eg.) So if this is true crytek will riase the standards once again.
