While the minimum requirements list much older CPUs, they list relatively high-end graphics cards. Are people who have something like a GTX 1060/1650 or RX 580 going to have a hard time running this game even at minimum settings? According to this site, the 1650 and 1060 make up over 10% of the PC graphics card market. Will people with that level of midrange GPU be able to run the game well enough so the graphics don’t get in the way of the experience?
The GTX 1080 only has about 1.00% market share, plus that’s a pretty high bar for minimum requirements.
Also, with the recommended cards having ray tracing capability, does ST:R support ray tracing? Those cards also have 8gb VRAM or more, will a card with less VRAM be super bottlenecked?
I’m concerned about it being so heavy on GPU power, the game may not be able to reach as many people in the PC market with such high minimum requirements.
I agree! I have an RX570 (not the RX5700) with 4 GB of VRAM.
I can play any game I want, most on decent quality and also on 2560x1440 resolution.
The bare minimum for ST:R is an RX5700 and an RX6700 is recommended.
Will it run on my RX570 at all then?
Will there be a demo of the first 5 minutes or so so I can try if it’ll run or not…?
We made some generational cut-offs based on manufacturer driver support health.
I spent most of our development cycle running an RX580 (Thanks to the GPU shortage)
through 6K worth of screen real-estate, being able to play the game, in editor, on one of my HD monitors just fine.
We officially begin support at our listed minimum specs. Remember you can always take advantage of Epic store refund policies and give it a try on older hardware, we just can’t make any promises. There are a few scenes within the first 2 hours that can serve as benchmarks.
The game does not support raytracing.
Thanks for your reply.
Being a huge Star Trek fan, and especially of games like A Final Unity, Judgement Rites, 25th Anniversary and games like that, I am really excited about this game and will of course buy it.
I also have PS5, although I prefer to play these games on my pc, since it’s more convenient for me.
But perhaps I’ll get the PS5-version just to be safe
I’d recommend trying the PC version. Like we said, the minimum requirements are more driven by the lack of manufacturers driver support for older cards, rather than the games ability to run. It can run reasonably well on older cards, even though they may no longer be supported by Nvidia or AMD.
@jdstrawesome and @Kevin, as @vrowdy said, thank you for your replies. This puts me at ease.
Then it will be fine on the Radeon Pro 580X. Most games are still running well on that video card. I got one for the 2019 I-Mac with Windows 11 running on Bootcamp, the specs on my machine are 32 gigs of ram and 3.700 Mhz clock speed and has the Intel Core i5 processor.
I use A Geforce GTX 1660 TI with 6 GB VRAM. it surge some times, but for me ism´t it disturbing.
