PC System Analysis For Apex Legends Requirements
Apex Legends requires at least a Radeon R9 290 or GeForce GTX 970 4GB to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. 8 GB will also be needed to achieve the Apex Legends rec specs and get 60FPS. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Apex Legends needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11. We suggest a 7 year old PC to play smoothly.
