PC System Analysis For Death Stranding Requirements
Death Stranding requires a Radeon RX 590 8GB graphics card with a Core i7-3770 4-Core 3.4GHz or Ryzen R5 1600 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. Death Stranding needs a Core i5-3470 3.2GHz or Ryzen R3 1200 processor coupled with a GeForce GTX 1050 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. Minimum RAM requirements are 8 GB system memory. Your graphics card will need to be capable of running DirectX 12.00. In short you need a 3 year old PC for best Death Stranding performance.

Realistically, what do you think the performance will be? Just recently upgraded my mobo, processor and ram. Saving up for a new GPU, looking at the 2070 or 2070S. Hoping within the next few months.

I checked the system requirements and compared the GTX 1050 against your GPU which is actually worse than yours by 55%. So yes it will run on the system though achieving 60fps at 1080p might be difficult if not impossible with that GPU. Your best bet is turn all settings down to low.


Do NOT turn on the "Memory for Streaming" option! YOUR GPU CAN'T HANDLE IT!

You can 60FPS it with that, maybe with a tweaked medium-high.

In short you will mostly be getting 58-60+ fps if you choose to run at medium-high tweaked settings, it will be totally playable and generally a good smooth experience. This game is well optimized even the 970 can handle it its a beast of a card

The 970 is no beast. It's actually more mid-range by today's standards.


Death Stranding just isn't very demanding at all.

Well thats what i said , hence the " even the 970 can handle it" part ... Its no beast but still can run many games at medium to high tweaked settings and for someone who owns it and doesnt have the money to upgrade it definitely is a great gpu

You guys are all awesome! Thank you very much for your input. I just bought a EVGA 2060 Super and got the game for free with my purchase, so I'll be able to play worry free. Was about to get a 2070 until I found out the 2060S was newer and cheaper. Would have liked to get a 2070 Super but it was out of my price range.

It should be possible, tho you might have to tweak the settings to get stable 60FPS at 1080p

at 1080p definitely , hell with the use of DLSS 2.0 id say you might even be able to go 4k 60 fps as they are claiming this game to be very well optimized

It should be possible.
You meet the min system requirements, and since your goal is medium 1080p (some tweaks may be necessary) I think it should work.
P.S.
I'd love to hear back from you, when you measured your FPS.

Yes im willing to tweak whatever is necessary ( atleast to the point where it doesnt look like a ps2 game lol). I'm hoping its well optimized all Hideo kojima games ive ever played were tho but fingers crossed here.
Ill let you know how it runs when it releases (Y)

Averaging 58 fps on high settings , it depends on the areas though when its really dense area with trees and ambient occlusion it drops to even 40 fps but other than that getting about 60 mostly , i knew it would be well optimized !
