Ger 'Alt Of Here With These Witcher 3 System Specs

For the past decade I’ve done the financially responsible thing and bought a mid-tier PC and stuck with it till it was melting, crashing, rubble around my feet, but last year I bought something properly top-end for the first time ever. A good thing, because it means it no longer reboots as soon as I load a game. A good thing, because I have a thousand tabs open right now and Chrome needs all the memory it can get. A good thing, if The Witcher 3‘s system requirements are anything to go by, since even the minimum spec is unusually steep. The full details are below.

These details:

Minimum System Requirements

  • Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz
  • AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940
  • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660
  • AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
  • RAM 6GB
  • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
  • Direct X 11
  • HDD Space 40 GB
  • Recommended System Requirements

  • Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3,4 GHz
  • AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz
  • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770
  • AMD GPU Radeon R9 290
  • RAM 8GB
  • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
  • Direct X 11
  • HDD Space 40 GB

The Witcher 3 certainly looks pretty enough to justify high demands of your PC, but such high system requirements are a recently returned phenomenon. Perhaps the new console generation really has put an end to years of stagnancy in graphics engines and we’re in for a few years of unfettered polygon growth, every game an open world full of crowds and particle effects and shaders.
