Deep Silver Volition has released the complete system requirements for its upcoming Saints Row reboot. Although the minimum system requirements were previously revealed by Deep Silver Volition back in June, you now have a better idea of how your computer will run the game.
You will need an Intel Core i7-6700k or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X to run the game at recommended settings (1080p @ 60FPS). You’ll also need at least 8GB of VRAM. The devs have specified a GeForce GTX 1070 and an AMD Radeon RX5700. Andy also noted that 16GB of RAM is required to run the game at the recommended settings.
For minimum settings (1080p and 30FPS), you can use an Intel Core i3-3240 or AMD Ryzen3 1200. It would help if you also had a GPU with at most 4GB VRAM, such as a GTX 970, RX 480, or a GTX 970. The game’s lowest settings require 8GB RAM, which is more flexible.
However, you will need a Core i5 12600x or Ryzen 7 5800x to crank up Saints Row to its maximum (4k 60 FPS). You’ll need 12GB VRAM for your card, such as an RX 6800XT or 3080ti.
To run all game versions, you will need Windows 10 64bit. If you are still using Windows 7 or 8, then you will not be able to play the game. Deep Silver Volition states that the game requires 50GB of space for installation. Any setting beyond the minimum specifications will require solid-state drive installation.
Below is a breakdown of Saints Row’s system requirements.
Deep Silver Volition has not yet specified the graphics settings for the PC version. However, Digital Foundry stated in a tech preview that the game packs many options, and each set is updated on the fly. This allows the game to show the world right as the presets change. These settings support Ray-Traced Ambient Occlusion, with four presets low, medium and high, and ultra. Although the game does not support ray-traced mirrors, it does provide multiple presets for screen-space reflections.
Digital Foundry mentions, however, that the game’s own Core i7 7700K rig and RTX 3080 failed to achieve 4K 60fps when playing in open-world areas. This would not have been the final game build, but Volition might have helped the game’s performance.
