PC System Analysis For NieR: Automata Requirements
NieR: Automata will require Radeon R9 380X graphics card with a Core i5-4670 3.4GHz or APU A10-7850K Quad-Core processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. The RAM requirements are at least a 8 GB memory. To meet min requirements your hardware requires at least a Radeon R9 270X or GeForce GTX 770, which you will likely need to run on low graphics setting in game. You may need to adjust your screen resolution down from 1080p to reach a stable 30FPS. Also try adjusting other in-game graphic settings to further improve your minimum performance. Don't try and play NieR: Automata without 4 GB, which helps get the 30FPS Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 11 or NieR: Automata won’t run. Finally, NieR: Automata will need hardware that is a 7 year old PC or younger to run recommended.
