With the introduction of ray tracing via a recent upgrade patch, the Resident Evil 7 system requirements now require higher specs from your gaming PC. Support for DirectX 12 is now a must, which may lead to some older systems needing an upgrade or two.

You’ll now need to install Windows 11 or 10 in order to meet the updated Resident Evil 7 system requirements, in addition to making sure your rig has a compatible GPU. Thankfully, the barrier to entry isn’t too high, with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 and AMD Radeon RX 460 make up the new minimum specs for the horror game
