If you are ready to download and hop into a slashing combat in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds game, you should take a look at some system requirements to learn if your computer is compatible with the game or not. As you know, PUBG has modest PC system requirements, but the system requirements of the game for playing at 60fps will be different. You need to find out the suitable type of CPU, graphics card if you want to experience a smooth and great gaming performance. Grab a chance to explore everything about the minimum and recommended PUBG system requirements. Also, there will be some good tips for you on how to optimize the framerate.
Minimum system requirements
- OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
- Processor: Intel Core i3-4340 / AMD FX-6300
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB / AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
- DirectX: Version 11
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Storage: 30 GB available space
The first condition requiring your computer to have is the version of operating system, which must be at least Windows 7. The Intel Core i3-4340 is known as the dual-core CPU from 2013, which runs at 3.6GHz. This tells you that PUBG is able to work on a lower-end CPU without having 4 cores. However, after analyzing the performance, PUBG could be totally CPU restricted. Therefore, this is the lowest requirement.
GTX 660 is the requirement in terms of graphics. It was already launched in 2012, but you need to know that this kind of graphics isn’t completely strong for modern games. Even if it’s at the lowest settings, you probably have to put your effort into running the game at 30 fps.
Make sure that your computer/s storage is 30 GB available space since the real first install size of the game is around 13 GB.
Recommended system requirements
Playing PUBG game with the minimum settings may not be a good way to enjoy, especially when it comes to the heavy Battle Royale game like this. Below here are the recommended requirements you should follow:
- OS: 64-bit Windows 10
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 5-1600 / Intel Core i5-7600K
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB or better
(DirectX, Internet connection and storage requirements have no changes)
PUBG game totally works fine on Windows 7, however, this version of Windows hasn’t updated anymore. You can think about letting the game run on Windows 10 even though it’s not the perfect one, but it still brings you a much better gaming performance than Windows 8.
You should choose AMD Ryzen 5-1600 or the latest Intel which is Core i5 as the main processor of your computer so that PUBG game can run well. These kind of processors will be more than enough!
In addition, an important thing you should notice is that the dual-core CPUs may have to undergo some troubles, especially when the lowest framerates could totally turn up in the most challenging times of the game. Now, a quad-core CPU is highly recommended because it will bring you a much better result.
After analyzing the performance, it’s good to conclude that the 1060 3GB is kind of strong enough to let PUBG work at an average 60 fps at 1080p Ultra settings while decreasing it to 39fps in the most extreme moments. At 1080p medium, the median is more than 100fps, and will never reduce under 60.
GTX 970 is known as the former generation of the graphics card, but it’s still somewhat close to the latest one – GTX 1060 3GB. If you try to fire your opponents for 60 fps with a high-end graphics card, just hope for reducing the settings to low for a better framerate. PUBG game is still being developed in an active way, there shouldn’t be any expectations of changing the performance further.
AMD’s GPUs won’t be as effective and great as Nivida GPUs, but still, they are good a bit. Nvidia was more preferred by the former versions of PUBG. However, after the retail launch with the newest drivers, the RX 570/580 and Vega cards are mostly equivalent with the GTX 1060/1070/1070 Ti.
