    If you are having doubts about your PC being able to run Space Engineers - even after reading the System Requirements - you can post your system's specs here and ask for advice.

    Also, don't forget that Minimal requirements represent the bare minimum to run simple scenes and don’t guarantee a perfect experience.

    too slow on my e5300 :(

    What are the rest of your specs and slow how? in a workshop world or a new one?

    Well, I'm always doubtful, so I was wondering if my PC can run Space Engineers (even on lowest settings) with a decent amount of stuff and decent FPS.
    My specs are:

    CPU: AMD A-10 5750M Quad core APU @2.5GHz

    GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8650G

    RAM: 8GB

    can my laptop run this game? Want to know before I buy it:

    Brand: Sony VAIO
    CPU: Intel(R) Core i5 2430M (Dual Core)
    RAM: 6GB of DDR3
    GPU: Intel HD Graphics Family
    OS: Windows 7 64bit
    HDD: 1 TB of memory, 600ish GB remaining
    Display: 1366x768 resolution

    The GPU is no longer supported so my Drivers are out of date, and most games recognize it as a nonstandard GPU. If there is a problem then this will probably be it. Is there any way to replace/upgrade it without having to buy a new motherboard/laptop? I heard you could plug in a new one to a USB port, what about that?

    NotSo, probably not. That laptop does not have a GPU and USB GPU's are very slow.
    "Intel HD Graphics Family" is an integrated GPU and will not run the game very well. You want a desktop or laptop with a dedicated, separate GPU.

    Yeah, I realized that. I'm gonna try and build my own computer, wish me luck! Fed up with stupid integrated graphics, that freaking GPU has been giving me trouble for years.

    Hi there, CPU AMD quad core 4350 (4,2Ghz)
    GPU HD Radeon 6950
    RAM 8 GB (2133Mhz)
    In new made world i run about 200 FPS then i get close to asteroid and it goes down to 15.. i tryied reinstaling pc, playing with catalyst with in game settings.. without difference. When im close to "roid" i jump to system then back game runs smooth but after "roid" gets fully loaded im down again to 15 fps.. any advices ?

    If I remember right, the game right now does not support multithreading yet, so basically only uses 1 core of the computer which limits the performance a lot. Once they changed that bit, the performance should jump up a lot on most systems - but when I remember the blog right, it might easily take like 6-12 months until they can change it, so a bit patience is needed ;-)

    That's incorrect even for the date it was posted. It's been multithreaded every since i've known about SE.. It's just not multi for physics.

    Nobody official will reply to my topic and nobody will reply to my email so maybe i can get a reply here

    I can't get more then 50 fps on lowest resolution and settings and my laptop meets the recommended specs. Before the last few updates it was running just fine. Its fresh windows with no viruses and drivers are all up to date. Can someone please clarify?

    I struggle to get 30 fps in a somewhat complex 5 day old multiplayer survival mode scene regardless graphics settings. 2 large ships, 4 small construction ships, 1 large mining ship, a base with a couple refining/assembling farms.
    CPU usage around 30%, GPU usage around 30%. My buddy with an i7 4770k and twin GTX 970's can't do any better. The game is clearly not optimized for mid-high end hardware configurations, and is at this point in time is largely unplayable unless one sticks to small ships and simple worlds. As soon as one starts adding in special entities like Refineries, Assemblers, Turrets, ect and doing productive activities such as mining, it drags the game down rather quickly. Yet it never seems to really dig into the hardware as the fps plummets. Given this, I would imagine that you could have a CPU/GPU 60-70% slower and end up with similar results. If i find the time i can test my Phenom 9500/9800 GT Vista 32bit rig and see how it fares. Probably better than what i have now.

    Hope this helps.

    I dont believe you seem to understand that even tho we are blowing away the recommended requirements for the game, we are still suffering from slow down and poor performance George. I'm getting the feeling you guys arent even looking at this forum here anymore. I've been reporting failing on the blueprint/script/mod/world save loading problems for OVER a year now. Not once has there been any reply or acknowledgement of our problems.

    I want buy SE but i don't know i run it on my PC. RAM 4GB, Intel Core 2 quad q6600, Asus GTX 650 ti.

    Edit. Pff. Nice community. Thank's for you i don't buy this game. Say bye bye money's.

    Kpr, it probably for the best, Keen has lost alot of respect from the community, unless it affects a majority of people they dont care. I've been reporting the blueprint/script failure to load (which isnt mods wouldnt load) for over a year now. I'm seeing more and more people reporting this problem now. From what I can tell yeah, you could run it, but you wouldnt like it run really slow. The system requirements have changed and they wont update them. Tech support, alot of mod support, old guard, (me included) has left, and the game has been going down the tubes for about a year and half now. Save you money and get something else.

    Hi folks,

    I just want to let folks know that I have really low end old system and it runs SE decently although certainly not as well as better machines. However at least for single player I feel that it at least runs well enough to have a positive experience that is well worth playing. I do have to tweak settings toward the low end, AND I am only running at 1600x900, also I am sure if I loaded a very complex scene my system would crawl. But again, my system is really low and and I wanted to let people know that I am able to run SE however NOT with planets.

    your system is way better than mine and i can run it (without planets)

    I have ~20 FPS in earth like planet where I have a tiny base and two very small ships. I tried to increase FPS by lowering graphic settings further and I get ~10 FPS! I decided to revert back previous settings but FPS is still 10. I exit the game then restart, I have 20 FPS again. I lowered the settings then restart the game again now I have 20 FPS again.

    Is there a way to improve FPS up to 30?
    What do I need to upgrade to increase FPS; GPU or CPU?

    Core i7 920

    I know you asked this 9 months ago, but I figured what the hell :/
    That's near enough the same specs as my laptop, and the game is playable (with mods), but it gets choppy every now and then. I'm in the process of upgrading to a desktop because I feel this laptop is very close to being obsolete with current games. Hope this helps :)
