Far Cry 6 is roughly a month away, and ahead of the game’s official October 7 release date, the system requirements needed to run the PC version have been officially revealed.
The game’s minimum specs are not too heavy, with an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or an Intel Core i5-4460 processor and either an AMD Radeon RX 460 or an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 graphics card inside your rig. Those minimum specs on the CPU and GPU front, along with 8GB of RAM will run the game on a low preset with a resolution of 1080 and 30 frames per second and no ray tracing.
Now, if you are looking to run the game at 1440p or 4K resolutions, you will need to have more powerful hardware upgrades for your machines. For example, if you want to run the game at 1440p with 60FPS and no ray tracing, you would need an AMD Ryzen 5 3600X or Intel i7-9700 processor with either an AMD RX 5700 XT or Nvidia RTX 2070 Super as your GPU with 16GB of RAM.
Here is everything you’ll need to know about the PC specs to best experience #FarCry6.

But if you want to run this game at Ultra Settings, you will need the most recent hardware available on the market. To run the game at Ultra Settings, you need at least an AMD RX 6800 or an Nvidia RTX 3080 graphics card with your CPU either an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X or an Intel i7-10700k with 16GB of RAM.
Fortunately, Far Cry 6 is one of the games that will support FidelityFX Super Resolution, AMD’s supersampling technology. Unlike Nvidia’s DLSS, FidelityFX Super Resolution does not require machine learning and it is open-source, meaning you can use this supersampling tech on both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards. This includes Nvidia’s GTX series, which does not have support for ray tracing or DLSS.
Far Cry 6 arrives on October 7. Ahead of its release date, IGN had the chance to do a hands-on preview.
