PC System Analysis For Planet Coaster Requirements
The game engine for Planet Coaster is Cobra. Planet Coaster will require Radeon R9 380 graphics card with a Core i7-4770 4-Core 3.4GHz or FX-8350 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. 12 GB will also be needed to achieve the Planet Coaster rec specs and get 60FPS. Planet Coaster needs a graphics card thats at least as powerful as a GeForce GTX 560/Radeon HD 7850 paired with FX-4300/Core i5-2300 2.8GHz CPU to match the min specs. This PC setup will deliver 25-35 Frame Per Second at Low graphics setting on 720p resolution. Don't try and play Planet Coaster without 8 GB, which helps get the 30FPS Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Planet Coaster needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11.00. We suggest a 6 year old PC to play smoothly.

this game is totally heavy on cpu. 1080p+ with high details runs on 45fps average, sometimes drops to 35. my vega 64 are running only for 50%, but 4,8ghz 4790k running 90%+.

FX-8350 Radeon HD 7850 1GB Sapphire Edition 16GB

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.

I know this game has some weird demands, but my CPU is overclocked to 4 GHz and such. Need some general advice on what to expect with this specific setup. I'm aware that higher settings and larger parts mess with CPU power, but even mine?

I voted yes because...overclocked CPU and videocard has great performance in general for 1080p. Game should run at medium in some parks as well depending on your guests.

Will I be able to run this at all? Or will it be choppy at low to medium? My graphics card should be able to do medium, but not sure of my CPU or RAM. Or if it is worth playing this on low. Maybe I'll just wait to get Zen and larger RAM if not.

Depends on which resolution you play. I'm sorry to say 1080p probably won't cut it. 720p will but you have to sacrifice a lot of quality and limit your guest count to 2000 or so... but I would advise you to upgrade your pc.

Hard to say. The more you do, the more demanding it gets, specifically on the CPU.
