Resident Evil 2 remake’s PC System Requirements

Capcom is set to return to Raccoon City in early 2019, recreating Resident Evil 2 with Resident Evil 7’s RE Engine to deliver enhanced visuals and a reimagining of the classic experience that is more palatable for modern audiences. 

During AMD’s E3 livestream the company confirmed that they are co-operating with the development of Capcom’s remake, with plans to deliver DirectX 12 support, optimise the title’s performance and offer full support for FreeSync 2 and HDR.  

It is possible that AMD’s optimisation work will also apply to other RE Engine games like Devil May Cry 5, though co-operation beyond Resident Evil 2 (Remake) has not been confirmed. Recent AMD optimised games offer support for Radeon features like Shader Intrinsics and Rapid Packed Math (FP16 acceleration). 

So far, Resident Evil 2 appears to be easy to run on modern PCs, with the game’s PC system requirements asking for a minimum of an R7 260X, which was a low-end GPU that released in 2013. Modern gaming PCs shouldn’t have any issues running this game. 


If these PC system requirements are correct, we can assume that Resident Evil 2 will support both DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, with Capcom listing both sub-3GHz Haswell CPUs and AMD Piledriver-based CPUs in their system requirements, which are pretty low-end when compared to modern Intel i3 and AMD Ryzen processors.
