PC System Analysis For Dishonored II Requirements
Based on a modified id Engine 6, Dishonored 2 will be running a graphics engine called Void. The visuals in D2 require a top end PC to enjoy fully. With the developer required specifications having been released, to run this title at 60FPS on high you will need 16GB of RAM, an i7-4770 or an FX-8350 coupled with a GTX 1060 or RX 480. Although we think that the FX-8350 is probably a good processor to deal with this game, we think you could probably get away with around 60 fps with a i5-4570 and a GTX 950 or R9 370X with the right setting tweaks, depending on what you prioritise.
