PC System Analysis For Need For Speed: Rivals Requirements
Need For Speed: Rivals will require Radeon HD 7870 graphics card with a Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz or Athlon II X4 620 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. 8 GB will also be needed to achieve the Need For Speed: Rivals rec specs and get 60FPS. Need For Speed: Rivals needs a graphics card thats at least as powerful as a GeForce 8800 GT/Radeon HD 3870 paired with Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5800+/Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz CPU to match the min specs.

Don't try and play Need For Speed: Rivals without 4 GB, which helps get the 30FPS Your graphics card will need to be capable of running DirectX 11. We suggest a 9 year old PC to play smoothly.
