Konami has been missing in action for too many years and except for that eFootballwhich is the direct heir to the mythical Pro Evolution Soccer lifelong, the rest of the old and glorious franchises of the Japanese seemed lost forever in the trunk of memories. But look where not, and the proof is everything they showed in the week of October 17, 2022 with several new projects… and the occasional remake.
A return to the future
The fact is that among all the pedrea of novelties that are going to surround Silent Hill in the near future, the PC has been lucky to enjoy a new version of that second installment which initially came to PS2 in 2001, although later it was adapted for other machines such as PS3 and Xbox 360. So this arrival in the field of compatible games is one of the best news that the Japanese could give us, especially when it comes to of a story that had nothing to do with the first original PSX game.
Now, what team do you think you need to get this game going? Well, because of what the company announced, they don’t seem too demanding, although there is one point that says a lot about the number of PCs that will be able to start it, and that is the RAM, which will require at least 12GB to start. So keep it in mind if you are below that figure because you would have to buy something else or, as we suggest, make the leap to one of the gaming laptops that you have on the market right now and that offer extraordinary performance in matters such as the power of the processor, the power of the graphics card, the quality of the screen and the read/write speed of its SSD drives (there are exceptions).
These are the minimum and recommended requirements of Silent Hill 2 Remake for PC:
|Minimum requirements||Recommended Requirements|
|Processor:||Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X||Intel Core i7 8700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X|
|Graphic card:||AMD Radeon RX 5700 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080||AMD Radeon 6800XT or Nvidia GeForce 2080 RTX|
What laptop do I buy?
With all of the above on the table, we are going to focus on a laptop model that meets and exceeds what Konami asks of us as recommended requirements for Silent Hill 2so we have gone to the market and we bring you a very interesting model.
Its about Acer Predator Triton 300, which is located in an intermediate range between the most modest models for gaming -which usually cost around 80 euros-, and those that already cost 2,000, which are much more powerful but you just don’t want to spend so much. So for a middle ground, nothing like this model that offers an Intel Core i7 11800H processor, 16GB of RAM memory expandable to 32 from the first minute, 1TB of SSD storage space and a graphics card with very good performance such as the Titanium version of the Nvidia RTX 3050. Of course, it comes without an operating system.
The screen, as if that were not enough, is IPS, with a size of 15.6 inches, FullHD resolution (1080p) and a refresh rate of 144Hz, which is a real wonder to enjoy any video game with a smoothness of movements of an almost eSport level. You know, the one that allows you to aim at the pixel without losing precision or suffering annoying lags.
