Here Are The Recommended Specs For Final Fantasy 7 Remake On PC

PC specs for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake have been revealed ahead of the game’s launch later this week. The PC port will include the base game, and also the Integrade DLC that was released on next-gen consoles earlier this year. 

The minimum and recommended specifications do not provide any expectation for performance, but the good news is that the minimum recommended card is not anything too demanding. PC players who want to run the minimum recommended specs – which is most likely 720p at 30fps – will need an NVidia GTX 780 or Radeon RX 480 along with other components listed below.

To run the game at the recommended settings – which we’d guess would be 1080p/1440p at 60/30fps respectively – you’ll need a Nvidia GTX 1080 or a Radeon RX 5700. Square Enix has not yet provided any details about what players can expect from those settings. So, we are literally just doing some guessing work based on typical performances from those cards. 

PC players can also expect to lose a fair amount of storage space to Final Fantasy VII Remake. You’ll need at least 100gb of storage. Based on some of the streaming issues the game had on PS4 – texture popin was common – we would recommend installing the game on an SSD if possible.

The full specs needed for recommended, and minimum, can be seen below. 

Minimum Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3330 / AMD FX-8350
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Storage: 100GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 12 or later
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 / Radeon RX 480

Recommended Requirements (at least 1440p)

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3330 / AMD Ryzen 3 3100
  • Memory: 12GB
  • Storage: 100GB
  • DirectX: DirectX 12 or later
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1080 / Radeon RX 5700

Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch exclusively on the Epic Games Store later this week, where players can purchase the game for a whopping £65. Fans have been critical of the pricing, which falls in line with what consumers are paying for titles on next-gen consoles.
