PC System Analysis For Final Fantasy XV Requirements
Final Fantasy XV is built using Square Enix's Luminous Studio graphics engine version 2.0. FFXV requires extremely high-end hardware in order to max out the graphical settings, although a reliable 60 frames per second can be achieved by a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480 when playing at 1080p screen resolution on High graphics settings. A mid-range GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R9 280 will be fine for playing at 900p, although you may need to dial the settings down to Medium/Low.The recommended Final Fantasy XV GPU requirement is an Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB or alternatively the RX 480 from AMD. Alongside this, you will want 16GB of system memory. The CPU requirements ask for either an Intel Core i7-3770 4-Core 3.4GHz or AMD FX-8350 processor, both of which are fairly powerful despite their age.
