Saints Row's reboot will not melt your PC, at least not at 1080p
Saints Row's new reboot is coming to PC and consoles on August 23rd, and gamers can already have a play with the game's character editor with the game's free "Saints Row Boss Factory" demo on all platforms.
On the Epic Games Store, Deep Silver Volition have shared the minimum system requirements of Saints Row, revealing the hardware that PC gamers will need to play the game at 1080p 30 FPS. Thankfully, these hardware requirements are low, which means that most PC gamers will be able to aim for higher resolutions or framerates when they play the game later this year.
At this time, it has not been confirmed whether or not Saints Row will support resolution upscaling features like DLSS or FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0. Either feature would make the game easier to run on supported hardware.
On the CPU side, Saints Row's minimum CPU requirements are a joke, at least by today's standards. The game needs a CPU like the Intel i3-3240 or AMD's Ryzen 3 1200 to run, neither of which are remotely high-end, even when each of these processors launched. On the GPU side, things are a little more demanding, with Deep Silver Volition recommending a minimum of an Nvidia GTX 970 or a Radeon RX 480. Both of these graphics cards are considered low-end today, making Saints Row's reboot an easy game to run on PC.
PC System Requirements - 1080p 30 FPS
OS - Windows 10 64-bit
Processor - i3-3240 or Ryzen 3 1200
Memory - 8GB
Graphics - Geforce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 480
Storage - 50GB of Storage
DirectX - DX11
VRAM - 4GB
Saints Row's 2022 reboot is coming to both last-generation and current-generation consoles, which limits how much the game can make use of modern hardware. The game has to support the hardware within last-generation consoles, systems which were released almost nine years ago. With this in mind, it makes sense why Saints Row recommends such low-end PC hardware, especially on the CPU side.
