Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Requires 213GB of Storage for Storage and Game Cache

The PC system requirements for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are out. The competitive shooter looks relatively more optimized than our usual guests. To run the game at the minimum settings (1080p Low at 30 FPS), you’ll need an Intel Core i5-6600 or a Ryzen 5 1400 alongside a GeForce GTX 960 or a Radeon RX 470. Now that’s old hardware, nearly a decade old. You’ll also require 8GB of memory, 149GB of SSD storage, and up to 32GB for assets cache.

To play at 1080p 60 FPS using the “High” quality preset, a fairly old midrange system will do. You’ll need a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or an RTX 3060 alongside a Core i7-6700K or a Ryzen 5 1600X. The memory requirements grow to 16GB and the overall storage space to 181GB (149GB + 32GB) if you include the high-resolution assets cache.

4K Ultra demands a GeForce RTX 3080 or an RTX 4070 and a Core i7-8700K or a Ryzen 7 2700X on the CPU side. In addition to 16GB of memory, you’ll need 213GB of storage space (149GB + 64GB for assets cache). 10GB of VRAM is required for a smooth experience.
