The minimum system requirements for the PC version of Mirror's Edge have been unwrapped by developer DICE, along with a video of the new PC-only PhysX effects.

"Actual gameplay footage slowed down to emphasize PhysX effects," the video notes.

Those PhysX effects are purely optional, designer Fredrik Thylander confirmed alongside the minimum system requirements in the On Mirror's Edge forums:

Operating System Microsoft Windows XP SP2 / Vista

Processor Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz or 100% compatible equivalent

The PC version of Mirror's Edge hits North America on January 13.
