Capcom Releases Free Resident Evil 6 PC Benchmark Test

Resident Evil 6 is steadily crawling its way towards its March 22 release date for the PC, and to help prepare gamers for the undead onslaught Capcom and NVIDIA are offering a standalone benchmark that's available to download for free. The test stresses PCs using what's called the Mercenaries mode from the console version, except in the benchmark there are a lot more targets for the characters Leon and Helena to shoot at. Suffice it to say, anything lower than an NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS and Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz (or AMD Athlon X2 2.8 Ghz) will likely result in abysmal benchmark scores. To get halfway decent benchmark ratings you will need an Intel Core 2 Quad 2.6 Ghz (or AMD PhenomTM II X4 3 Ghz) and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 (or its AMD equivalent).
