Dead or Alive 6 Packs some Insane CPU Requirments

Dead or Alive 6 is set to land on PC this Friday, and Koei Tecmo Games has finally released the game's PC system requirements on Steam, where the title will be available exclusively on Windows. The game will also be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
     
While the game boasts a "new graphics engine" and a "new level" of graphics for the series, Dead or Alive 6 cannot be called one of the best looking games out there. 

Judging from the title's official PC system requirements, PC gamers may have a hard time running this title, especially if they have a lower-end processor, with Koei Tecmo recommending the use of an i7-8700 processor, a high-end Coffee Lake offering that can boost up to 4.6GHz under load. The game also recommends a staggering 16GB of system memory. 

This feels like a punch in the face to PC gamers, as Dead or Alive's PC system requirements are either incredible inaccurate, which is not uncommon for Koei Tecmo, or that the game actually needs a high-end six-core processor to run well on PC. If the latter is true, calling the game unoptimised could be considered an understatement.

Thankfully, things are a little laxer on the GPU side of the equation, with the game supporting a minimum of a GTX 770 graphics cards while recommending a GTX 1060. Sadly, no AMD hardware requirements have been provided, both on the CPU and GPU side, with the developer offering no indication of how much VRAM players are expected to have. 

MINIMUM:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10 ?64bit?
Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 or over
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 50 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 11 or over

RECOMMENDED:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 10 ?64bit?
Processor: Intel Core i7 8700 or over
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 50 GB available space

Dead or Alive 6 will release on PC through Steam on March 1st.
