Hi @trakgamer12 and welcome to Answers HQ

Your CPU is below the minimum system requirements for Apex Legends and therefore wont be able to run the game.

 

Minimum system requirements:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHz / AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • RAM: 6GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 / Radeon HD 7700
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB
  • HARD DRIVE: Minimum 30 GB of free space

There's sadly nothing we can do except press the "me too" button on threads in here.

 

POPCNT is a part of the SSE4 CPU instructions as can be seen here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE4

 

As can be seen here: https://www.reddit.com/r/apexlegends/comments/aop521/quick_update_before_the_weekend/ CPUs will also need SSE3 support.

They added message with new patch saying:

 

"CPU does not have POPCNT!"

 

Core2Quad and mostly Intel processors dont have popcnt because Intel built it in later series.

 

Same problem was with some other games, Quantum break for example.

Couldnt work without POPCNT, but could have worked with Intel SDE Emulator.

 

I tried it with Intel SDE but it cant start because easyanticheat doesnt want Debugger to be used...because cheats Standard smile Frown

 

 

EDIT1:

 

Tried this https://github.com/ogurets/popcnt_emulator

Not working

Unfortunately any of socket 775 wont work. We should make a pettion or something so they patch it and let us play.

Same here, my setup is:

 

mobo - asus p5p43td/usb3

cpu i2 quad q9400 - o/c to 3ghz

gpu msi gtx960 2gb

12gb ddr3 ram

P300 1tb hdd

PS corsair vs650

 

I know this cpu is bad but shouldve work anyways, it can handle witcher 3 high settings over 70 fps and many other games so i have no clue why does apex has that high min. requirements
