Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is one of the most popular new games at the moment and its popularity is only increasing with more and more people buying it. Of course, the first thing to do before buying a new game is to check out its system requirements. In this manner, you’ll make sure that your computer is capable of running that game without any problems.

Sometimes, fans get carried away and buy their favorite games as soon as they’re out without even checking the necessary system requirements. Now, many of those are experiencing various technical issues.

RE 7 Biohazard can run on CPUs without SSE4.1 support

Capcom recently confirmed that it received many reports from players who can’t properly play Resident Evil 7 on computers equipped with CPUs that don’t support SSE4.1. Although these CPUs don’t meet the RE 7 requirements, the company is working to find a solution so as to help gamers play RE 7 even on CPUs without SSE4.1 support.

We’ve received reports from customers who have been experiencing issues playing Resident Evil 7 when using CPUs that doesn’t support SSE4.1.
While the CPU does not meet the minimum system requirements, the team is already hard at work investigating and triaging the issue to see if it can be fixed.  We’ll provide an update as soon as we find a solution. Please stay tuned.

This is a very good piece of news for Phenom CPU users. Perhaps many players will now decide to wait for the patch instead of demanding a refund, as others have already done.
