God of War Ragnarok system requirements kratos

What are the God of War Ragnarok system requirements? Following the reveal during Sony’s recent State of Play event, we now know that God of War Ragnarok will arrive on PC later this year, and it could be among the most demanding PS5 ports on PC.

We expect you’ll need the best graphics card to run God of War: Ragnarok at 4K resolution, and if we look at other PS5 ports we can discern that the now discontinued Nvidia GTX graphics cards could still feature as the entry-level pixel pusher.

Here are our God of War: Ragnarok system requirement predictions:

Minimum (1080p, 30fps) Recommended (1440p, 60fps)
OS Windows 10 or later Windows 10 or later
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650
AMD Radeon RX 5500XT
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070
AMD Radeon RX 6800
CPU Intel Core i3 8100
AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
Intel Core i7 9700
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Storage 90GB SSD 90GB SSD

When thinking about the God of War Ragnarok minimum requirements, it’s best to look towards Horizon Forbidden West as a guideline as this recently made the jump to PC too. We believe running God of War Ragnarok at 1080p with 60fps should only require an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon RX 5500XT alongside a quad-core gaming CPU with clock speeds of around 3.6GHz.

As for the God of War recommended specs, we expect a considerable jump, as these may target 1440p, 60fps gameplay. Expect to need an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or AMD Radeon RX 6800 paired with an octo-core gaming CPU with base clock speeds of around 3.0GHz.

Nvidia DLSS 3.7, AMD FSR 3.1, and Intel XeSS 1.3 were all confirmed during the reveal trailer alongside ultrawide support. The upscaling tech will help less powerful graphics cards, provided they’re supported, to reach higher frame rates. With the God of War Ragnarok PC release date now set, these requirements are likely to get an update soon.

The God of War Ragnarok download size is difficult to discern because the PS4 and PS5 versions both come in different sizes, and the Valhalla DLC will come with the PC version for no additional cost. Due to this, we anticipate needing at least 90GB of available space, with a gaming SSD being recommended across all system requirement levels.
