It's only a matter of weeks now until the new football seasons are upon us, and that can mean only one thing - EA Sports preparing to launch FIFA 16. Its annual footie series is back on PC this September, bringing with it the usual raft of changes and revisions.

One of the most talked about features is the addition of women's teams, adding a total of 16 international squads for the first time in the series. That's not all for FIFA 16 either, with contact-less dribbling,   advanced defending, mid-air tackling, the new FIFA Trainer system, and more. Ah, and the refs now get the magic spray out to mark free kicks, what more could you ask for? Before that though, find out whether your gaming rig makes Messi look messy or a world-class champion, by checking out the official FIFA 16 system requirements...

FIFA 16 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 3.1 GHz or AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-Core 2.4GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 or Radeon HD 5770
  • HDD: 15GB Available Space
  • DX: DirectX 11

FIFA 16 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2550K 3.4GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 460 or Radeon HD 6870

In terms of the system requirements for last year's edition, these for FIFA 16 are pretty much identical, with only minor incremental leaps. If you could run FIFA 15, it's practically guaranteed you'll be able to run FIFA 16 at exactly the same graphics settings. 

For series newcomers, you're going to need a base-level DirectX 11-capable machine to play FIFA 16. The respective minimum processors are fairly low-end now, matched by moderate graphics cards in the shape of the GeForce GTX 650 and the Radeon HD 5770. Both of these or their modern equivalents are extremely affordable and so shouldn't pose much of a problem. 

Moving up to the FIFA 16 recommended system requirements, and these are somewhat on par with what we'd expect from a PS4/Xbox One port. For OS fans it might give you a little tingle of excitement to see our first set of system requirements with Windows 10 recommended. Early reports indicate Windows 10 will see performance boosts across the board, so if this were to be paired with the minimum specs you could be looking at some decent performance.

Elsewhere it is perhaps slightly unusual for the recommended Nvidia graphics card to be a generation older than the minimum, but EA Sports reckon this is a decent fit. In truth there isn't much to tell the two cards apart, suggesting there might not be too much wiggle room in terms of graphical options.  

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the FIFA 16 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the FIFA 16 benchmark chart

2550K....yeah..right..because the iGPU and 0.1GHz in terms of Turbo clock matter! Or how to be a ho pretending you're special asking for "different" system requirements.

No, at least not according to the requirements :/ But I'm sure the game will run well. Just wait until it comes out, so we can get some benchmarks done.

Still, I'm pretty sure the 650 is about as fast as the 460. If not a tiny bit faster.

The first digit in the Nvidia gpu's tells you what generation this gpu is from (ofcourse the higher the newer) the last two digits is the one you need to look at. A 650 is newer than a 570 but since the 570 has the second digit higher than the 650 means it performes better. :)

that is incredibly wrong. again the first number is generation when the second number is tier. Newer generations have better performance per tier of card but they are not consistant. Ex. gtx 670 is faster then the 760 buy a small margin but the 770 is faster then the 680. It's all based on each individual comparison.

Agree with above, altough the difference between the x50 and x60 card of each generation is allways quite big

Well, the 650 is two generations newer than the 460 while being only one tier lower. Also, it still has driver support which would mean a 650 and 460 are the same in terms of performance.
