Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Minimum System Requirements Blast Off

The final piece of this month's hectic first-person-shooter marathon arrives next week with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It may have the most disliked trailer in YouTube history, but I have funny feeling that's not going to stop COD: Infinite Warfare selling like gangbusters. Series veterans Infinity Ward are back at the helm this time around, steering the biggest franchise in gaming to a new frontier - space. Don't jump in your spaceship too quickly though, check out COD: Infinite Warfare's official system requirements to see if your PC is up to the task.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3225 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 820 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 70 GB available storage


The easiest way to size these specs up is to compare them to last year's outing - Black Ops 3. Across the border there's only an incremental jump up in demands, so chances are if you could play COD BLOPS 3 with any degree of reliability then you should be good to go here with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

CPU demands are where COD: Infinite Warfare is most lenient. Only a low-end Core i3 or an aging Phenom II X4 810 are required, so anyone with a CPU bought in the last five or so years will be fine. 

In terms of graphics cards the actual raw performance required for Call of Duty: IW remains pretty much the same, but you will need a graphics card a generation or two newer. Both the GeForce GTX 660 and the Radeon HD 7850 were mid-range graphics cards four or so years ago when they came out so you're only really going to struggle if you an extremely low-end model graphics card from today such as any GT x10 or x20 models for GeForce owners.

Probably the most noticeable part of these system specs is the huge 70GB install for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The COD series keeps ballooning in size with every version so this should come as little surprise. Bear in mind as well that if you also buy the Legacy Edition of Infinite Warfare which includes Modern Warfare 4: Remastered, the total installation size jumps to 130GB.

Ah, and one last thing. We've only got the minimum specs for Infinite Warfare and that's likely all we'll have. Black Ops III never had recommended specs released. We have however updated the game page with predicted recommended requirements based on the demands of last year's version, so be sure to check that out if you want perfect performance.

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare GPU benchmark chart.

These minimum settings sound good, but i think my gt 730 OC 30 % should handle just fine at 720p low settings with high textures @ 30 fps.

People are so hyped up about SSD's and how they improve loading times, but rarely buy them over 512GB. With a 70GB title I can fully understand that SSD's are useless since games take in too many space. SSD's need to lower in price soon.

yup. change my dedicated(just games) 120gb ssd to 1tb hdd because of large space required for games nowadays. I dun install much games but 120gb ssd used to be enuf for 3-4 AAA games a few years ago. sigh how time changed the space requirements.

futuristic games aren't that bad actually. but in COD case it kinda went boring after repeating the same bulls*it for years. and i personally think that Activision did really blew it up when it introduced the space element in to this game.

mass effect is not a shooter like cod is, it's more an RPG than a shooter.

Naturally it does, not for everyone though. I personally am far more likely to get excited about Medieval setting than sci-fi for example. Just the fact that this CoD has a Sci-fi setting makes it much less appealing to me that if it would have modern or historical setting.

exactly as fudge said, i find modern shooters or world war 1/2 games way more appealing to me, and that's just how i like the games, some people might like futuristic but i don't and that's just how it is :/

but futuristic just means different textures and gun models... the movement system on the other hand could have been done in other different ways, but indeed is the only key difference.

I bet it uses 6GB Ram at max. Do you remember COD Ghosts aka the game with min 6GB requirement that consumed 4GB of ram on ultra settings?

Can someone tell me why CoD always need so much harddrive space? I mean, as far as I know, the maps are a lot smaller than Battlefield for example. And Battlefield 1 is 20 gb less than Infinite Warfare at 50 gb space needed...

I would imagine it's the campaign. A lot of uncompressed audio and high res textures. In BF1 it reuses a lot of the multiplayer environments for single-player.
