I would like to try Codemasters F1 2016 game, from Steam,but because my PC is very poor,I am unsure whether it would run on my machine.
I could wait until I get a better gaming rig, also hopefully the game my be on a cheaper sale deal on Steam.

I can run F1 2014 well enough,but when I tried F1 2015,the game run and was well frappy. Although on the latter I heard that the 2015 version was bugged to hell and even people with very high spec computers had problems.

Below are some details of my PC specs(not great) and what the site, System Requirements Lab says,regarding my ability to run the F1 2016 and 2014 game.

My System: System Information
------------------


   Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit
             Memory: 8192MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 7650MB RAM
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11

Display Devices
---------------
          Card name: AMD Radeon HD 8330
     Display Memory: 4077 MB
   Dedicated Memory: 493 MB
      Shared Memory: 3584 MB
       Current Mode: 1366 x 768 (32 bit) (60H)
        Native Mode: 1366 x 768(p) (59.989Hz)

System Requirements Lab for F1 2016 (Minimum Spec) says I need an upgrade of my Video card.Pixel and vertex shader are fine but dedicated ram is 1024 and I have 493.2. Also I have CPU AMD A4-5000 APU with Radeon™ HD Graphics but it requires Intel Core i3 530 or AMD FX 4100
On recommended it is the same with the addition of my CPU speed not good enough.

F1 2014 that I can run well:On minimum all is fine, except a little down on CPU speed and on Recommended my CPU speed is down. I am down again on the CPU and on my Video card my dedicated video ram is down from the recommended 1gb to my 493.2

Is it worth the risk of a purchase or should I wait for an upgrade ?

Thanks for any advice !

Hi Marco and thanks for the info.

It is looking more likely of a massive upgrade at some point in time :hithead: :duh:

If F1 2015 didn't run well on your system, F1 2016 will be running just as bad if not worse.

F1 2015 was buggy at the release, but it is well optimised now after quite a lot of patches. I experienced that at the moment F1 2015 runs better than 2016.
