Ray Traced Callisto Protocol Out: NVIDIA RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT for 1080p Ultra, RTX 4090 Fails to Hit 60 FPS at 4K

Much awaited survival thriller “The Callisto Protocol” is now out on PC, Xbox Series X, and PS5. Leveraging cutting-edge ray-tracing technologies, this game has got some hefty system recommendations. The developer recommends a GeForce RTX 3080 or a Radeon RX 6900 XT for 1080p ultra. The Ryzen 9 3900X and Core i9-9900K are the suggested CPUs, rather tame considering how taxing ray-tracing can be on both chips. In addition, you’ll need 16GB of memory and 75GB of available storage, preferably an SSD.

The ultra-quality preset is preceded by “Max”, a step down with relatively mild requirements. For running Callisto Protocol using the Max preset at 1080p, you’ll need a GeForce RTX 2070 or the Radeon RX 6700 XT alongside the Ryzen 7 2700X or the Core i9-9700K. It’s worth noting that the game is poorly optimized and doesn’t hit the 60 FPS mark at 4K, even with the newly launched GeForce RTX 4090.
