Released specs are

Transgaming is behind the port. That means they're using Cider, which is basically a branch of Wine that they added a lot of proprietary code to. In other words, it's still the Windows version of the game with the DirectX calls translated in real time to OpenGL and Core Audio. So it's kind of like being emulated, which is going to demand more hardware. It sucks, but it's a lot better than nothing.
