With Total War: Three Kingdoms, the next installment of the Total War series will be released on May 23, 2019. After playing Warhammer 2, released in 2017, in a fantasy universe, Three Kingdoms leads the player to third-century China. Now Sega announces the official system requirements of the strategy game.
Spartan minimal details with old hardware
The information provided by the publisher covers a wide range of hardware. For the Spartan minimum settings and about 30 frames per second, an Intel Core 2 Duo, four GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon HD 7850 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti equipped with a GB video memory are enough. Provided Windows 7 is also available in 64-bit Variant. Sega is still guilty of the required storage space.
According to Sega, the resolution, which is much more contemporary with Full HD and around 50 FPS, requires an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X or a Core i5-6600. While the required memory doubles to eight GB, the amount of video memory required quadruples to four GB. A concrete example is a Radeon R9 Fury and a GeForce GTX 970.
For 60 FPS Sega calls an Intel Core i7-8700K
For a consistent resolution, but maximized settings and at least 60 FPS Sega finally calls an i7-8700K and thus demands almost the maximum; a presumably unrealistic high estimate. While RAM is still specified at 8GB, the graphics card requirement is growing well: a GeForce RTX 2060 and six GB of video memory are mentioned. An AMD counterpart, however, owe the information, experience has shown that a Radeon RX Vega 56 or 64 equate here. Furthermore, Sega recommends now Windows 10 in the 64-bit variant.
