Need for Speed’s PC system requirements are nice and specific

The PC version of Need for Speed (the rebrand from last year) will be released on 17 March, and now has some system requirements for people to pick through.

In a very welcome move, the “minimum” and “recommended” both include more detailed specifics about what those words actually mean. Exactly the sort of thing I was asking more developers to do in my recent Quantum Break system specs article. More of this, please!

Minimum Requirements for 720p30 at low settings:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-4130 or equivalent with 4 hardware threads
  • Memory: 6GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB, or equivalent DX11 compatible GPU with 2GB of memory
  • Hard Drive: 30 GB free space

Recommended Requirements for 1080p60 at high settings:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 or equivalent with 4 hardware threads
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB, AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB, or equivalent DX11 compatible GPU with 4GB of memory
  • Hard Drive: 30 GB free space

The same announcement also includes a list of wheels that will be supported at Need for Speed’s release:

  • Logitech G27
  • Logitech G29
  • Logitech G920
  • Thrustmaster TX
  • Thrustmaster T150
  • Thrustmaster T300
