Skyrim HD Pack Updated

Bethesda Blog has details on an update that's now available on Steam for the free HD texture pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim:

In a continued effort to support our PC fanbase, weíve released a Steam update to Skyrimís (free) HD Texture Pack. In addition to high resolution textures in the main game, the update adds improved textures for Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and the newly-released Dragonborn.

Before you download, make sure your PC has the horsepower to support it. Make sure your system requirements exceed Skyrimís recommended specs before attempting to install, and that your PC has Windows Vista/7, a minimum of 4GB of system RAM, and a DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with at least 1 GB of RAM and the latest drivers.

If you already have the Skyrim texture pack, be aware that youíll be downloading an update thatís approximately 4.7 GB in size.

And since you do actually need quite a beefy rig to be able to run the game well with this texture pack, if you include it from the start, the people with lesser rigs will get shitty performance.
No, people with lesser rigs just have to use a lower texture quality setting so lower resolution mipmaps are used, like has been done in PC games for well over a decade now. Also, they obviously had the textures in the HD pack before the game released, as the textures in the base game are just downsampled versions of the ones in the HD texture pack.
