Mad Max System Requirements

System Requirements Optimum 1080p PC Build Low vs Ultra Screenshots GPU Performance Chart CPU List That Meet System Requirements GPU List That Meet System Requirements

Following closely in the pyrotechnic dust trail left behind in the wake of Fury Road, Avalanche is preparing to launch Mad Max in just a few weeks. It's not an official tie-in with the movie, so there's no character crossovers or anything of the sort, but it is Mad Max. So expect plenty of carnage in the wasteland, with vehicular based combat and brutal melee fisticuffs,

Mad Max is set within a post-apocalyptic open-world, with scarce ammo and even scarcer fuel. The remnants of humanity are forced to fight over the remaining resources, but luckily Mad Max himself is equipped with his Magnum Opus. It's a fully upgradeable vehicle that can be armed to the teeth, ready to run and gun down the marauding factions. 

Mad Max Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-650 3.2 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB
  • HDD: 32GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • Audio: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card

Mad Max Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 3GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon HD 7970

Despite the fact Mad Max is running on Avalanche's own in-house Avalanche Engine, these system requirements are almost identical to another title published by Warner Bros - Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. There's a few minor bumps to the graphics cards required, but the processor, memory and even hard drive demands remain much the same. 

Avalanche reckon you're going to need 2GB VRAM as a minimum, so it's a bit of a guzzler, and 3GB for recommended. If it's anything like Shadow of Mordor, it open world will push the capabilities of your video card memory to the max, particularly if you're thinking about Ultra settings.

The minimum requirements for Mad Max aren't particularly eye-opening, but you will need a 64-bit system and at least 6GB RAM, so 4GB won't cut it, much like last year's Advanced Warfare. It may be the case that 4GB will suffice, but it could really negatively impact performance. 

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

What do you make of the Mad Max system requirements? Let us know!

Isn't the 660ti (minimum req.) a little faster than the 760 (recommended) or it's just about the VRAM?

both of them have 2 gb of vram but gtx 760 is better because of its performance. and also, gtx 700 series cards are of course better than gtx 600 because 600 cards are getting older. gtx 700 cards will get older when nvidia will invent gtx 1000 cards maybe

Recommended GPU RAM is 3 GB so I'd imagine it's the 760 4GB version. 3 GB GPU RAM is the minimal size for higher texture settings for most (non indie) games now.

No the 660ti is slower but it's such a small difference that I really don't see why that is the low and recommended settings. unless the game only has the option to change reso or something this is just going to be wrong, as usual.

No. The 760 is faster. The 760 is 980MHz on a 256-bit bus, & the 660ti is 915MHz on a 192-bit bus. Where the 660ti catches up a little is on the shader performance. 660ti has 1344 CUDA cores, & the 760 has 1152 CUDA cores.

It's kinda MEDIO- just kidding. It's one of the best action movies I've seen in a while. It's almost always constant action and absolutely crazy. Also the style is fantastic. If you like Fallout and Borderlands, you will love this one (and the original Mad Max).

Yeah you should be able to. That 870M is almost identical to the minimum required desktop 660ti. The only difference is that the 870M has a slower memory clock speed. The 870M has 1250MHz memory speed vs the 660ti with 1500MHz speed. If you over clock the memory of your 870M to 1500MHz from the factory 1250MHz you should be fine. Good luck & hope for good optimization. ;)

Thanks buddy! Do you really think it's a good idea to overlook a laptop with such a slim design as the MSI GS70? What heat difference would it bring? By the way, is the minimum requirements for 1080p, 30 fps with low settings? :)

Well with a slim laptop you may be right not to want to risk an OC. First thing to do is do in monitor your temps in game & see how much head room you have to OC before hitting the thermal safety limit. Once you hit that safety temp the GPU will down clock & your performance will go to poo so you will want to keep an eye on the temps either way. Even at your stock clocks you should be fine.

I think the minimum is for medium settings @ 1080p & recommended is for high settings @ 1080p. The minimum PC requirements should match or slightly beat the console versions, & I think the console version are normally medium PC settings @ 1080p/30fps. You should be able to pull that off, & if the game gets decent optimization you may get a little better than 30 fps like maybe 40 with dips to 30.

Well you are thinking wrong. Most of the console versions of games run at medium PC settings. They may have 1 or 2 settings on high like textures & load distance, but that is it. Everything else is set to medium.

Yes I might just check the temps just to see what I'm actually running with, but the top of the laptop is already geting very hot so I'll not OC. Its nice to hear the minimum are for medium settings as I've always thought they are the requirements for just launching the game at low settings @ 1080p

That is how it used to be, but so many people have complained about that over the past few years that I have seen a change in how minimum requirements get listed by developers. I am guessing the devs got tired of so many hate emails from people using the minimum requirement not being able to play. Best way to deal with that is to just start raising the requirements to avoid that happening.

requirements are NEVER true, usually the developers don't have much hardware available and recommend what runs well on the hardware they have, I'm sure that it will run equally as good on an i5 as it will on an i7.

Especially if you look at the AMD counterpart. an Fx8350 could easely be comparable to an i5 4690. Now, it could depend on the core optimization (fx being 8 and i5 being 4 in that case) but I honestly doubt that it would bring such a difference. Although no one could be sure.

FX8350, 6300 or 4300 doesn't really matter, DX11 games do NOT benefit from more than 2 cores/threads, they do benefit from a lot of cache though, anyway an i5 will be better even than an piledriver 128 core for gaming.

Or you could look at the minimum requirements and see the same situation reversed....... devs just pull these requirements out of nowhere, they don't know a thing about hardware because they never have to touch anything less than their I7 5960X, Quad Titan X development rigs..... they just guesstimate how it's going to run for lower end rigs than that.

With 8GB Cards on the market right now it is normal that them use more resources to make the PC games look a lot better than consoles, and that is a good thing,

If people can't play it because of bad optimization then it really doesn't matter how good the actual game content is because we can't experience it the way it was intended..... it doesn't really matter whos fault it is, if the final product is crap.... then it's crap.

Actually NO game for the past 5-6 years has been well optimized(mainly due to tight budgets and deadlines), there were just games that were less optimized than others. Anyways it is true, there are games which run well and are demanding for what they are and there are games like assassin's creed unity which atm is optimized decently and people just do NOT want to admit that the game is demanding and still blame it on the optimization....
