With a month to go before release, Eidos Montreal has released the minimum and recommended system requirements for the PC version of Deux Ex: Mankind Divided.
From the way the new installment was being hyped, it’s a bit surprising to see that the minimum specifications aren’t particularly high. Those with an old Intel Core i3 processor (or AMD equivalent) and Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD 7870 will be able to run the game. However, you’ll still require at least 8 GB of RAM to ensure that the system doesn’t cap on memory processing.
Coming to the recommended requirements, Deux Ex: Mankind Divided will demand an Intel Core i7 (or AMD equivalent) and a whopping 16 GB of RAM. Assuming that your resolution of choice is 1080p, your system better be packing an Nvidia GTX 970 or AMD RX 480. Eidos Montreal hasn’t revealed GPU requirements for those wanting to play Deux Ex: Mankind Divided at higher resolutions.
