I have an old Alienware M17x, with
- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU X 920 @ 2.00GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
- 2 x AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5800 Series (Crossfire)
- Driver (latest and final - legacy) : AMD Radeon Settings Version : 2016.0226.1531.27895 ; Driver Packaging Version : 15.301.1901-160226a-299900E
I purchased the game a few days ago, but could not go further than the 1st tutorial mission, with a crash when placing a mine or upgrading robotics factory.
Problem is solved now, after allowing in "Properties/Betas" the "next_version", running now version 1.11.15006 with Direct3D 11.0.
