Starfield PC Specs: NVIDIA RTX 2080, AMD Ryzen 5 3600X with 125GB of SSD Storage

The system requirements for Bethesda’s blockbuster title Starfield are out. Like much of the developer’s previous games, the hardware requirements are modest, requiring an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti or a Radeon RX 5700 and an Intel Core i7-6800K or a Ryzen 5 2600X (at the very least). On the memory side, you’ll need 16GB alongside 125GB of SSD storage. The SSD is compulsory to prevent texture steaming-related issues. Like Forsaken, Starfield will also leverage the DX12 Direct Storage API to boost load times.

Minimum Specs

  • OS: Windows 10 version 2004 (10.0.19041.0)
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600x, Intel Core i7-6800K
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 5700, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 125 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: SSD Required

The recommended specifications are substantially higher than the minimum requirements. You’ll need a Radeon RX 6800 XT, a GeForce RTX 2080, plus a Ryzen 5 3600X or a Core i5-10600K. The memory and storage requirements remain the same.

RECOMMENDED SPECS

  • OS: Windows 10/11 with updates
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X, Intel i5-10600K
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Storage: 125 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: SSD Required

Bethesda hasn’t revealed the resolution and settings for the abovementioned hardware, which makes it a little hard to comment on them. The recommended requirements could indicate the 4K or 1440p requirements. We also don’t know the targeted frame rates and graphics settings targeted for these specs. Support for upscaling technologies like DLSS, FSR, and XeSS is expected but not a certainty. We should hear more in the coming months. Starfield is coming to Xbox and PC in September.
