PC System Analysis For Nioh Requirements
Nioh will require Radeon R9 380X graphics card with a Core i7-4770K 4-Core 3.5GHz or Ryzen R5 1500X processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. Nioh needs a Core i5-3550 3.3GHz or FX-8320 processor coupled with a GeForce GTX 780 to get it to run minimum system requirements. This will return around 30FPS at 720p screen res on low graphics settings, but you can also adjust the settings further to tweak. Don't try and play Nioh without 6 GB, which helps get the 30FPS Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Nioh needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11.00. In short you need a 6 year old PC for best Nioh performance.

Will it be consistent, too? I'd prefer it not stutter when CPU-heavy events happen.

Yah you'll have the same issues as you had in DS3 if you're fine with that. Due to optimization issues, I'm sure it might be worse so low settings for sure.


Happy gaming. :)

The only real issue is the graphics card really, but due to poor optimization, you may get reasonable FPS medium settings in most areas, though for best FPS I'd stay closer to low with shadows and textures turned down.


Happy gaming. :)

You should be able to push a little more than low. Probably closer to med.

This game is a bit CPU-intensive (expect some random FPS drops because that bottleneck), but I'm sure you can play at 1080p30 on Low without any problem.

You might have slight issues at the worst of times due to the optimization of the game. If you do, adjusting AA or shadows (if options were given) may resolve dips and drops.

Quick update: Bought it, it runs well at 50-60 at 1080p. Only thing lowered is shadows.


I had shadows disabled during the intro because I was paranoid, so I can't say how it would run on the opening, but now it's on low shadows.

Should be able to no problem. Due to optimization at the resolution, you may see dips at intense parts. Though you should be fine.

You can. Though you will have some issues. The games not amazingly well optimized as a result you may see dips. This is due to the CPU, not much to fix that. Lower resolution and distance scaling.

Poorly optimized. :( Though technically you should be able to manage it.

These requirements are absurd and should by no means be followed. DS3's requirements were substantially lower and that game looks better in every aspect. If it requires a 780 as a minimum, it's poor optimisation, and nothing else.

The 6300 has a slight OC and the GTX 960 is actually the MSI OC 2GB version, which I need to correct. Just wondering what settings I could run it at.

Of course you can, even at 1080p. This game isn't that taxing, not sure what's happening with these exaggerated requirements, even if they are official.

The game is unoptimized and a port. At worst you may have slight issues here and there but your system should handle it quite well.

Man, I've always liked those Windforce X3 cards. Very cool design, I still prefer the overall glory of the ROG STRIX but man those wind force. :D


Happy gaming man.
