DIRT 5’s PC system requirements have been updated with higher AMD Ryzen/Radeon recommendations

Earlier today, Codemasters confirmed that DIRT 5’s release on PS4, Xbox One and PC was delayed until November 5th, bringing the game’s PC release ever closer to the launch of both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. 

Alongside this update, Codemasters has also edited the PC system requirements of DIRT 5, upping the game’s recommended system requirements on AMD-powered systems. Strangely, the game’s Intel and Nvidia system requirements are unchanged; only the game’s recommended system requirements on Radeon hardware have been altered. 

Instead of recommending AMD’s Ryzen 5 2600X, Codemastersnow recommends AMD’s Ryzen 5 newer 3600 processor. On the graphics side, Codemasters has also changed its Radeon RX Vega 64 recommendations to AMD’s RDNA-powered RX 5700 XT. Both of these updated hardware recommendations are significantly faster than the hardware they replace in gaming applications, as both utilise newer Ryzen/Radeon CPU/Graphics architectures.

Now, AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT is recommended alongside an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 Ti, which is a strange pairing given the fact that AMD’s RX 5700 XT often competes with Nvidia’s RTX 2070 in modern gaming titles.
