Starfield’s PC Specs Have Been Revealed
The much-anticipated Starfield, an open-world RPG developed by Bethesda, has recently unveiled its system requirements for PC gamers. As players eagerly await the game’s release, the official Steam page has been updated to provide a glimpse into what they can expect.
Fortunately, the minimum specifications are not overly demanding. PC players will need either an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X processor or an Intel Core i7-6800K, accompanied by an AMD Radeon RX 5700 or NVIDIA GeForce 1070 Ti graphics card. These specifications should allow players to enjoy Starfield on their systems, albeit at a baseline level.
For those seeking an optimal gaming experience, the recommended system requirements suggest an upgrade to either an AMD Ryzen 5 3600X or an Intel i5-10600K processor. These processors, paired with a higher-end graphics card, will ensure smoother gameplay and enhanced visual fidelity.
Notably, regardless of whether players opt for the minimum or recommended specifications, one crucial component is a solid-state drive (SSD). Starfield is set to occupy a substantial 125GB of storage space on players’ SSDs, underscoring the expansive nature of the game world and its richly detailed environments.
Here are the detailed system requirements for Starfield:
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X / Intel Core i7-6800K
- Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 5700 / NVIDIA GeForce 1070 Ti
- Storage: 125GB SSD
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X / Intel i5-10600K
- Graphics Card: (Higher-end model not specified)
- Storage: 125GB SSD
With these specifications now available, players can prepare their systems accordingly, ensuring they have sufficient space and hardware to embark on the interstellar adventure that awaits them in Starfield.
However, it’s important to note that these specs may change in the future as the Steam page is not part of an official announcement on Bethesda’s part. The specs don’t indicate what kind of performance users will experience either, so it’s unclear what frame rate and quality settings these requirements will target.
When it comes to console, Bethesda and Xbox have confirmed that Starfield will be locked at 30fps on Xbox Series X|S. It will run at 4K resolution on the Xbox Series X and 1440p on the Xbox Series S, but the framerate will be 30 FPS for performance consistency.
Starfield is set to launch on September 6, 2023 for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
