The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt system requirements will test even the biggest of rigs

What are The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt system requirements? CDProjectRed has set the minimum and recommended set up: can you run it?

You’re going to need to find a nice cool place in your house, start packing the walls and ceiling with ice, and layer the floor with heatsinks and cooling trays. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s system specs have been revealed and that game’s going to make you computer run hot.

I’m looking through the minimum specs and the only thing my desktop can manage is the 40GB of hard drive space.

Check out the minimum system requirements:

  • Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz

  • AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940

  • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660

  • AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870

  • RAM 6GB

  • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)

  • DirectX 11

  • HDD Space 40 GB

And that’s just to get the thing running. If you want The Witcher 3 to fly on your machine CDProjekt RED recommend:

  • Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3.4 GHz

  • AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz

  • Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770

  • AMD GPU Radeon R9 290

  • RAM 8GB

  • OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)

  • DirectX 11

  • HDD Space 40 GB

Looks like I’m going to be borrowing my flatmate’s computer because my Windows Vista-toting, Radeon 7850-toting, svelte 4GB of RAM-wearing PC won’t cut the mustard.

How well does your machine match up to the demands?

You have until May 19 to get your rig in order. That’s when The Witcher 3 releases on PC.
