Evolve System Requirements

Turtle Rock Studios made a big name for itself with the original Left 4 Dead, immediately getting snapped up by Valve following its launch before going independent a year later. Now they're back and promising to be bigger than ever with another bite at the cooperative shooter apple with Evolve, a 4 v 1 asymmetric multiplayer title about teams of hunters fighting against a gigantic roaming player-controller monster.

Evolve's system requirements originally got revealed back in October last year when the Big Alpha went live, but since then Turtle Rock has clearly changed things a bit, tweaking the system requirements somewhat. To find out whether your rig's a towering Goliath or a hunter crushed beneath its foot, read on to check out the official Evolve PC system requirements.

Evolve Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400+ 3.2 GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1GB Graphics Memory 
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 5770
  • HDD: 50GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

Evolve Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-920 2.67 GHz or AMD A8-3870K 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R9 280

Now in terms of changes, the differences between the Evolve Big Alpha and the final release are fairly minor. The install size takes the biggest leap, jumping from 15GB to 50GB, which was to be expected considering the Alpha was just a sliver of the final game. Minimum processor requirements for Evolve stay the same for AMD users, but Intel owners' requirements have taken a minor leap from an Intel Pentium D 930 up to the Core 2 Duo E6600. Everything else for minimum remains identical, which is to say that Evolve isn't a particularly demanding experience. Those minimum graphics card requirements are also probably fairly accurate, we ran the Alpha on a GTX 650 and it just about got 30 frames per second on Low at 720p, so it's unlikely you'll get away with much under the GTX 560 asked for.

The recommended requirements for Evolve also remain much the same, with the AMD CPU being tweaked slightly from the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T to a more recent model in the A8-3870K. Performance is actually slightly lower on the newer CPU. The Nvidia GPU has also been altered to be more in line with its AMD counterpart the R9 280, dropping from a GTX 680 down to a GTX 760. 

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the Evolve System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Evolve benchmark chart.

yep ran the beta maxed out vsync off and god a nice 70s in fps, works pretty well but the game isn't really a type you will be playing for a long time like l4d its like you play for maybe a year with friends and then you all move on

Hopefully it is moddable as l4d 1. I still have fond memories of killing waves of enemies in modded maps with like 30 players and waves of hunters hopping up at you or 3 tanks just decimating everyone. Also the game was greatly optimized ran great on my Pentium dual core e2180 with a 512mb gts 7600.

I played with this system on medium-high with 30-40 fps in alpha version. With a little frame drop when the game starts.

OK these are not terrifying but I still gotta ask two things:



  1. GTX 560 and HD 5770...? Must be Radeon optimized...

  2. Aren't those CPUs a major bottleneck for the GTX 560 and HD 5770...?

Dualcore? I say no. I played the Alpha (urr, duur, it's just an Alpha!! - I'm sorry but an "Alpha" which in reality was more like a beta almost finished, and we're talking about a Triple A title here, not an indie) was terribly optimized, not mentioning the game was boring as hell. That's just my two cents though.

To be fair everything is maxed on advanced warfare except like the highest possible texture settings and super sampling isn't x16 because that produces noticeable visual lag. Wolfenstein on the other hand just doesn't want to be played :/

Same with CoD:AW.

You're telling me you're running CoD with everything on MAX? including those crazy shadow settings and super sampling x16 @ a solid 60fps? I find that kinda hard to believe. We are talking about multiplayer here right?

I stand corrected. I'm playing with Anisotropic Filtering on Low, and SMAAx1 for solid 60fps.


But Wolfenstein:TNO I am playing on Max settings for 60 fps.

Confirming that Wolfenstein: TNO runs at 60FPS maxed on my single card (READ: THERE IS NO SLI PROFILE FOR THE ENGINE!). Your 970 should have totally kicked ass at it.
Start looking for the problem :)

Yeah apparently it's well known that the pc version is bugged as hell, if you're running it perfectly maxed, consider yourself lucky. There are a load of solution on the steam community that I'll check out.

That's quite a leap between minimum and recommended, both in CPU and GPU, a nice change from the "i5 gtx670 min, i7 gtx780 rec" we so often see nowadays.
