    A lot of people are worried about Football Manager 2013 system requirements with the fear their old laptop won't be able to handle the new game; either that or there will be annoying delays between 'continues'.


    Update 6 September: FM13 minimum system specs revealed and will be slightly higher compared to FM12.

    PC
    OS - Windows XP/Vista/W7
    Processor - XP : 1.6GHz or Faster, Vista/W7/W8 : 2.2GHz or Faster
    Supported Processors: Intel Pentium 4, Intel Core, AMD Athlon
    Memory - XP/Vista/W7/W8 : 1.0GB RAM
    Video Card - 128MB *Supported Chipsets (see below)
    DirectX: 9.0c
    Sound: DirectX 9.0c compatible
    Supported Chipsets:
    Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 or greater; Intel 82915G/82910GL or greater.
    A fully DirectX 9 compliant graphics card is required.
    Earlier cards may only display 2D Match Viewer Mode and are not supported.
    Earlier cards may require the DirectX 9.0 SDK is installed to run the game.
    Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported.

    Mac
    OS - OS X 10.6.8/10.7.x/10.8.x or higher
    Processor - Intel Processor
    Memory: 1.0GB RAM
    Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 7300 GT or greater. ATI Radeon X1600 or greater.

    Either PC or Mac, you will need at least 2GB free space in your hard disk drive.


    Football Manager on Netbooks
    There are people on Netbooks who were able to play Football Manager 2012 just fine by using the special Netbook skin for FM 2012, even though game performance was admittedly slower especially when they tried to load more than one leagues for their save.
    The thing is that Netbooks are not powerful enough to provide a smooth playing FM experience, hence why there is no official Netbook optimized skin in the first place.
    So if your Netbook could play FM 2012, chances are you'll be able to play FM 2013 on it as well.

    Football Manager Handheld
    PSP
    We expect Football Manager Handheld 2013 for PSP to be playable on both PS Vita and older PSP editions, but most likely without native support for PS Vita. If FMH13 comes out for PSP in the first place that is, because there are some rumors that it might not.
    iOS and Android
    The specs of FMH 2012 will probably remain the same, so Football Manager Handheld 2013 for iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch shall require iOS 3.0 or higher. So if you're running an iOS version prior to v3.0 you should apply a newer update.
    Football Manager Handheld 2013 for Android is expected to require operating system version 2.2 or higher.

    AMD Vision is in theory the best choice for digital entertainment and gaming, so you should be fine on that front. Do you know the exact specs of the one you have though?

    Looks good enough to me, I wouldn't buy new hardware. Demo should be out soon and you can check how your computer is coping with it before buying anything.

    FMRegen27 : aren't those FM12 Same Requirements??

    Almost. Requirements have been slightly increased. CPU has risen by 200 Mhz for all Windows users, RAM is now 1 GB instead of 512 MB for Windows XP users, and for Mac users the OS minimum is now 10.6.8 instead of 10.5.8.
