What are the Diablo 4 system requirements? It won’t be long now until Blizzard unleashes the upcoming RPG game and hordes of demons upon the gaming space. You’d best act quickly if you want to prepare your system for Diablo 4 and its throngs of hellspawn.
Blizzard has worked hard to push the Diablo 4 minimum requirements as low as it can. Fret not adventurers, as you needn’t equip your rig with the best gaming CPU in all the land. Ten-year-old processors like the Intel Core i5 2500K or AMD FX-8100 will suffice here, so any modern chip should do just fine.
Here are the Diablo 4 system requirements:
|OS||Windows 10 64-bit||Windows 10 64-bit|
|CPU||Intel Core i5 2500K
|Intel Core i5 4760K
AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 660
AMD Radeon R9 280
|Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
AMD Radeon RX 470
|Storage||45GB SSD||45GB SSD|
Meanwhile, the rest of the game’s necessary specs are just as amicable. A measly 8GB of gaming RAM is enough to hold back the forces of darkness, so long as it’s aided by pixel pushers as powerful as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 280. All of these components combined should net you 30 frames per second using low settings at a 720p resolution.
Moving up to the Diablo 4 recommended specs, processing power jumps to the slightly less old Intel Core i5 4670K or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and RAM requirements jump to 16GB. On the GPU side, the beloved Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 470 should see you through. That said, Blizzard has confirmed that ray tracing support will be made available to those with the best graphics cards via a post-launch update.
You’ll need 45GB of space to contend with the Diablo 4 size requirements, and Blizzard explicitly recommends installing the game on the best SSD you have. You can try to run it on a hard drive, but the developer warns “the experience may be significantly diminished.”
