Elden Ring’s PC System Requirements Include a Quad-Core Ryzen 3 3300X, NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB, 12GB RAM, and 60GB of Storage

Elden Ring, the spiritual successor to the Dark Souls trilogy is slated to land on PC and the next-gen consoles later this year. FromSoftware has been providing updates on the project over the last six months, and all seems to be going according to plan. Elden Ring is expected to be much closer to Sekiro than Dark Souls, with the devs promising more forgiving combat, most likely to reel in a larger audience.

Moving onto the technical tidbits, FromSoftware has also announced the minimum system specifications of the game for PC gamers. In line with previous titles from the Japanese studio, Elden Ring will go easy on your computer as well. The minimum system requirements include a Core i5-8400 or an AMD Ryzen 3 3300X processor, and a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or an AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU. The memory requirements are a bit higher at 12GB, and the storage goes all the way up to 60GB, quite a bit higher than Dark Souls 3.

Minimum requirements:

  • OS: Windows 10 or 11 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
  • Memory: 12 GB of RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580
  • DirectX: Version 12 (DirectX 12)
  • Storage: 60 GB of available space

Interestingly, the game will be ditching DirectX11 in favor of DirectX 12 which is a much welcome change. This should improve CPU utilization as well as GPU performance on older AMD hardware. In case you’re wondering about ray-tracing or DLSS, I highly doubt either will be supported. Also, keep in mind that the minimum system requirements are tailored for the lowest graphics settings at 720p, targeting 30 FPS gameplay.
