Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montreal has revealed Shadow of the Tomb Raider's PC system requirements, unveiling notably higher hardware recommendations than the game's predecessors. 

On the CPU-side, most of the game's hardware recommendations have seen a generational upgrade over Rise of the Tomb Raider, with the minimum CPU requirement raising from an Intel Core i3-2100 to an i3-3220, with the game's recommended CPU increasing to an Intel i7-3770K to an i7-4770K or an AMD Ryzen 5 1600. 

RAM-wise, Shadow of the Tomb Raider requires a minimum of 8GB of system memory, with Square Enix recommending that users have a total of 16GB of RAM. GPU-wise things remain similar to before, requiring a minimum of a GTX 660/GTX 1050, a Radeon HD 7770 or an equivalent DirectX 11 graphics card.

Moving to the game's recommended graphics requirements, we find the game's developers recommending a DirectX 12 graphics card that is equivalent to or greater than a Radeon RX 480 8GB or a Geforce GTX 1060 6GB.    

 
Shadow of the Tomb Raider will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on September 14th. Below are the game's full PC system requirements.  


MINIMUM:


OS: Windows 7 64 bit
Processor: i3-3220 Intel or AMD equivalent

Hmm way too low for an enjoyable experience for us graphics lovers. I'd like to know what it takes to run it with all eye candy enabled (sans RT).Quote

A 1060 for recommended is pretty good considering the graphics in this game.Quote

But ... it is really not saying much is it? If anything, it is the marketing department saying that THEY suggest you buy the game if you got that card. And their interest is sales. I think they are OK with you being able to run the game around medium settings....



A better way, would be to list what is needed to run the game at various settings. "Recommended" is really worthless.Quote

If it was a Recommended of High 30fps then it wouldn't be as bad. But considering it's battlefield, a 1060 at 1080p high is easily able to hit 60fps. So in this instance I don't think it matters much. But I don't disagree that it should be more detailed. A few games have done that and it's very helpful.Quote
