We're still almost six months out from its launch, but already we've got our hands on Ghost Recon Wildlands closed Technical Test system requirements. The stress testing is going on behind closed doors, although this is the perfect opportunity to judge just what hardware you're going to need to run Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands at recommended or minimum graphics settings.
Ghost Recon Wildlands Minimum System Requirements
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5-2400S 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-4350 4.0 GHz
- RAM: 4 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R7 260X
- DX: DirectX 11
Ghost Recon Wildlands Recommended System Requirements
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
- RAM: 8 GB System Memory
- GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 Fury
As far as AAA gaming goes this set of system requirements for Ghost Recon Wildlands is about as standard as it gets. The GeForce GTX 970 has become the de facto standard for a lot of recommended requirements, although I suspect the R9 Fury is a little on the high side. A Radeon R9 290X or possibly even an R9 290 should be plenty.
Likewise with the minimum video cards for Ghost Recon Wildlands. The GTX 660 is a common minimum spec and we saw it with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare earlier today. Again, don't be put off by the newer model R7 260X suggested, a Radeon HD 7850 and upwards should be fine.
Elsewhere RAM requirements are on the low end so most PC gamers shouldn't have an issue running Tom Clancy's Wildlands as far as memory goes. CPU demands are a little on the high side but it's to be expected in a game which has open environments which stretch off for miles. There's a lot of legwork to be done by the CPU, so the faster the processor you can get your hands on the greater the draw distance and level of detail (provided you have a capable enough graphics card to go with it.
One last thing, keep in mind these are requirements for the closed Technical Test so they are liable to change between now and Ghost Recon Wildland's launch in March 2017.
Ordinarily I'd recommend you head to the Ghost Recon Wildlands game page and compare your rig to gauge performance but there's currently a few issues with updating system specs. This should be resolved by tomorrow and I'll update.
