PC System Analysis For Planet Coaster Requirements
Based on an Alpha version of Planet Coaster, it will require a high end computer to run at high graphics settings. So for 1080p screen resolution you will need around an Intel i5 3570 processor to meet recommended CPU requirements, along with a Radeon R9 380 graphics card and 16 GB system memory. To reach the minimum requirement setting for Planet Coaster, where you can play it on low graphics settings you will still need a Intel i5 2300 or AMD FX 4300 processor along side 8GB RAM and a GTX 560 GPU or an AMD HD 7850.

How well can I run this on my current rig right now? Finally got upgrades on CPU, and RAM amount, but sort of a degrade of graphics card I think.


Not sure how well it'd run on the current card I have, versus the graphics card that i had before which was a Radeon R9 270X Windforce OC Gigabyte edition, 2 gig which i had to replace,

I voted no because… This game is poorly optimized. It requires a hefty cpu to play this game at a decent framerate. More powerfull PC's than yours have trouble running the game at 30fps let alone 60.
