Full system requirements for Ryse: Son Of Rome reported on Sep-04-2014
The Xbox One's undeniable graphical showcase back at launch, Ryse: Son of Rome is heading to PC and promising to look better than ever. We know that lot at Crytek are capable of creating some of the best looking games of all time, and Ryse: Son of Rome looks to be no different. Crytek promise Ryse will push PC hardware to its absolute limits, as players don their warrior garb and set foot in the bloody drama of Ancient Rome.
Leveraging the power of the CryEngine and the latest high-end PC gaming technology, players will step foot into intense gladiatorial arenas and travel the world in a cinematic campaign against the bloodthirsty barbarian hordes. Don't be too hasty to grab your sword and head into battle though, because you'll need a PC capable of playing Crytek's latest graphical wonder, so read on to check out the official Ryse: Son of Rome system requirements.

CPU:Â Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6300 2.8 GHz or Athlon II X2 260 3.2 GHz
RAM:Â 4GB System Memory

Ryse: Son Of Rome Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU:Â IntelÂ Quad CoreÂ i5-2500S 2.7 GHzÂ or AMD FX-8120 Eight-Core 3.1 GHz
RAM:Â 8 GB System Memory
GPU RAM:Â 4 GB Graphics Memory
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 or AMD Radeon HD 7990
The minimum Ryse: Son of Rome system requirements aren't too shabby themselves, you'll need a moderately recent PC sporting a 2.8 GHz dual-core processor and a DirectX 11-powered card with at least 1GB of VRAM. That's not to forget the pretty hefty 4GB of RAM for Ryse and a hefty 26GB hard drive space. We know that Crytek's engine is extremely scalable, so we would think Ryse will be pretty playable with a rig like this. Don't expect all the graphical bells and whistles seen in the trailers and screenshots though.
The minimum requirements are just to get Ryse: Son of Rome up and running though, and if you want to see CryTek's latest beauty looking its absolute best then you're going to have to meet some absolutely mammoth recommended requirements. Putting aside the hefty processors and 8GB of system memory for the moment, it's the demand for 4GB of VRAM that will prove the biggest test. The first baseline cards released by Nvidia with 4GB graphics memory are the high-end GeForce GTX 690 or Radeon HD 7990 graphics cards. If you can find them new these cards will still set you back around $500-600+. Most high end games nowadays are demanding 8GB of RAM on recommended and Ryse is no different, while the Intel quad-core and AMD octa-core are still relatively high-end processors.
Run Ryse: Son of Rome On Recommended Settings With A SLI or CrossFire Setup
We know from the Game Debate database that very few PC gamers own GPUs with 4GB of VRAM, so the best option for most is an SLI or CrossFire setup. We think you will be able to hit the Ryse: Son of Rome recommended requirements with a pair of lower-end graphics cards totalling 4GB of graphics memory. We don't know Ryse: Son of Rome's optimisation for SLI or CrossFire set ups yet, but these requirements look to be a great match. Ryse: Son of Rome on dual card systems potentially opens it up to a lot more gamers, particularly with the price of cards with 4GB VRAM or more. We do think these demands are a little high though, and depending on your resolution you're sure to be able to get away with less. Crytek has made a lot of noise about the 4K support, but provided you're gaming at 1080p you should be able to get away with a lot more.
