Resident Evil 7 – New patch adds support for older generation CPUs

Capcom has released the second patch for the PC version of Resident Evil 7. This patch adds support for older generation CPUs as the game does not longer require the SSSE3 SIMD instruction set in order to run.

We are pretty sure that a lot of gamers will appreciate it as we’ve received messages from users that were unable to run the game due to this limitation.

This patch will be auto-download from Steam next time you start the client.

And here is the changelog for this second update for Resident Evil 7 PC:

  • Added support for older generation CPUs. More specifically, the game no longer requires SSSE3 SIMD instruction set.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
