Team Fortress 2

Of course they have wondered: What team do I need to develop a video game? The possibilities of choosing are infinite and they always tend to go away for the most powerful thing. To annotate a little, Valve has shared the specifications of the teams that they use to develop both games and updates in his platform Steam. These configurations change every 18 months for what I leave to them the current list and the one that glides to be implemented shortly.


Current teams:

  • Card mother EVGA 780i SLI FTW
  • Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 to 2.83GHz
  • 4GB of ram PC2-6400 DDR2 to 1066MHz (Crucial Ballistix, Kingston ValueRam)
  • Videocard NVidia GTX280 1GB - ó - ATI 4870 1GB
  • 1 Hard disk SATA of 250GB (7200rpm) (Seagate, Digital Western)
  • 1 Hard disk SATA of 500GB (7200rpm) (Seagate, Digital Western)
  • Office Antec Sonata III
  • Heat spendthrift for CPU of Zalman
  • Source of power Antec of 850W
  • Monitor LCD Dell 3008FPW-HC of 30 ″ - ó - 2 monitors LCD Dell 2001FP of 20.1 ″
  • Windows XP 32bit (WTF!)

    Teams to future:

  • Card Mother EVGA X58 3X SLI
  • Processor Intel Corei7 940 to 2.93GHz
  • 12GB of ram PC3-10600 DDR3 to 1333MHz (Crucial Ballistix, Kingston ValueRam)
  • Videocard NVidia GTX285 1GB - ó - ATI 4870 1GB
  • 1 Hard disk SATA of 250GB (7200rpm) (Seagate, Digital Western)
  • 1 Hard disk SATA of 500GB (7200rpm) (Seagate, Digital Western)
  • Office They Tie Li P60-F Up
  • Heat spendthrift for CPU of Intel
  • Source of power Antec of 850W
  • Monitor LCD Dell 3008FPW-HC of 30 ″ - ó - 2 monitors LCD Dell 2001FP of 20.1 ″
  • Windows Dresses 64 - bit

    I surprise two things, first it is the loss of 800MB of RAM in the current configuration for one uses a Windows of 32 - bit and second it is the step backwards on having chosen a spendthrift Intel on a Zalman. For a recent experience I have verified that the fans that come with the processor do not give the breadth when they surrender to heavy work; here it is where Zalman goes out to the rescue since it has prevented me to come to 45ºC in full map compilation for UT3.

    Enviable the second configuration, somewhat costly but at the end of accounts you will have the certainty of which one of the most important studies they use it therefore there is no pretext to say that you remain short on having used Source.
