What are the Elden Ring system requirements? Soulsborne games are brutally hard – for some – but what might be harder is getting Elden Ring to run at ultra settings, given its lofty RAM demands.

Elden Ring supports a maximum resolution of native 4K with HDR and frame rates of up to 60fps. Unfortunately, FromSoftware has implemented a frame rate cap, as it did previously with its previous game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. As usual, this is circumvented through mods, and they’re not difficult to install, so it’s not a major obstacle to overcome for one of the best PC games.

Here are the Elden Ring system requirements for 2024:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 Windows 10
Windows 11
CPU AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
Intel Core i5-8400
AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
Intel Core i7-8700K
RAM 12GB 16GB
GPU AMD Radeon RX 580
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070
VRAM 3-4GB 8GB
Storage 60GB 60GB

The Elden Ring minimum requirements are surprisingly low, with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU needed alongside an Intel Core i5 8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X CPU. A possible stumbling block is the 12GB of RAM, but even some older gaming systems should be packing 16GB as a minimum.

Likewise, the Elden Ring recommended specs aren’t a massive jump up. Asking for an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 GPU to be paired with an Intel Core i7 8700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. The RAM here also makes the jump up to a conventional 16GB.

For the Elden Ring ultra settings, there are no official specs, but you’ll want to target a Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series card and at least a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU.

Thankfully, the Elden Ring download size sits at just 60GB, before you download any of the best Elden Ring mods that is. Having the best gaming SSD isn’t a requirement, but something I strongly recommend for the performance benefits.
