Your CPU does not meet the minimum specification for running Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

“I keep getting this error when trying to start MULTIPLAYER. My CPU is clearly over the minimum specs (Running a G3258 at 4.0GHz) but the game will not even start. This really shouldn’t even be an issue. My CPU runs any other game just fine. I just want to find a workaround that will let me play the game without having to drive to Microcenter and buy an i5..”

How to fix Call of Duty Advanced Warfare CPU Error ‘Your CPU does not meet the minimum specification’:

Try this solution below:

Find config file, it is located here:

\Call of Duty Advanced Warfare\players2\config.cfg

one thing I noticed was:

seta r_videoMemoryScale “0.85”

I changed this to

seta r_videoMemoryScale “1”

and now the game detects/uses my full 3gig of VRAM, whereas before it detected 2.5 gigs
