Ghost of Tsushima PC Specs: NVIDIA RTX 4080 for 4K 60 FPS, Likely to Favor AMD Radeon

The PC specifications for Ghost of Tsushima have been revealed. The former PS5 exclusive is headed to Steam (and Epic Games) on the 16th of May. It will include the full game, Iki Island expansion, and coop multiplayer Legends modes. PC gamers can play with PS4/PS5 users and use in-game voice chat to communicate. In a surprise move, Ghost of Tsushima will also leverage the PlayStation overlay, including Friends list, Trophies, Settings, etc. Of course, this will require you to sign into your PSN account.

The official PC requirements for Ghost of Tsushima are a little high on the GPU side. Considering the console version came out several years back, it shouldn’t require one of the fastest graphics cards even for 4K. To run the game at the highest quality preset “Very High,” you’ll need a GeForce RTX 4080 or a Radeon RX 7900 XT alongside 16GB of memory.

The CPU requirements for “Very Low” start at quad-core i3/Ryzen 3 SKUs, and top out at the Core i5-11400/Ryzen 5 5600 for “Very High.” Seeing as the requirements for 4K 30 FPS “High” and 4K 60 FPS “Very High” are identical, it should go easy on modern processors. After all, the PS5 is built atop the Zen 2 core from 2019 (so is the PS5 Pro).

For 720p 30 FPS, you’ll need a GeForce GTX 960 or a Radeon RX 5500 XT which scales up to an RTX 2060/RX 5600 XT at 1080p 60 FPS and the RTX 3070/RX 6800 at 1440p 60 FPS. Our review shows that the RTX 4080 is notably faster than the RX 7900 XT. It competes with the 7900 XTX which costs at least $100 more than the XT.

The last two Sony titles to come to PC, Helldivers 2 and Horizon: Forbidden West, run considerably faster on Radeon GPUs. We expect the same from Ghost of Tsushima. Either way, there will be day 0 support for AMD FSR 3, NVIDIA DLSS 3, and Intel XeSS, with DLAA and FSR 3 Native AA for top-end PCs. The game is fully optimized for ultra-wide monitors, with support for 21:9 and 32:9 resolutions. Even 48:9 resolutions and triple monitor set-ups are supported.
