There's a bit of buzz surrounding Rime right now. The studio behind Deadlight has been beavering away on this sun-dappled third-person adventure game for the best part of five years now, and it shows. Parallels have already been drawn with Sony Japan's Ico series. Those particular games have never appeared on PC though, so Rime promises to be quite a treat. Rime is much better looking than your typical indie game though, so don't go expecting you can run it on a calculator like Super Meat Boy. Here's the official Rime PC system specs so you can find out if it runs on your system.

Rime Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2310 2.9 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 6850
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 7.4 GB available space

Rime Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 3.6 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 or AMD Radeon R9 280X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 7.4 GB available space

As far as your typical indie titles go, Rime is one of the prettiest we've seen. Its style of reminiscent of The Witness meets The Last Guardian, with a lovely minimalist aesthetic. The simple texture work bleeds through to Rime's system requirements, which are very low end when considered in the AAA space.

The absolute minimum you're going to need to run Rime is a DirectX 11-capable graphics card with at least 1GB VRAM. The vast majority should be sorted on this front. CPU demands are a little higher,the minimum suggesting a mid-tier quad-core processor.

The bump up to Rime's recommended specs aren't overly huge either. We're effectively getting a doubling of graphics card horsepower, which seems reasonable enough if you want to crank Rime up to max settings at 1080p. I'd guess any resolution higher than 1080p is going to need more than 2 gigs GDDR5 vid memory however.

Operating systems aren't going to make much of a difference to Rime's performance either. There's no DirectX 12 support to speak of, so this is just Tequila Works opting for a latest OS as recommended out of simplicity.

 

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Rime System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Rime GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Rime Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

First off lets get this straight. Yes it gorgeous but its not gorgeous due to graphical fidelity. It is gorgeous due to its art style.
Secondly if this game can run on a mobile device like The Switch (yes it is a mobile device not a full blown console as you can put lipstick on a pig but that ain't going to make it beautiful)...then these system requirements are overkill. An i5 3570K and GTX 770? Are you kidding me?


This Game has Lame Optimization. End of Story.

Damn, people still believe these system requirements... I think that Mad Max had larger minimum system requirements than Rise of the Tomb Raider and I could play that game on medium/high really well, but in RotTR I couldn't even get constant 30 fps with lowest settings and on lowest it looked like complete crap.

Pretty tame requirements since the 770 can be picked up for around $100 now.

These requirements show an unoptimized game, just like everything these days.

How? these are pretty low specs even for the recommended.

Back when I had a 280X I could basically play GTA5 at max/near max settings at 1080p/60, this game. Having seen the trailer, I don't think this game looks anywhere near GTA5 tech-wise

Despite what ppl are saying above, i think as long as it makes it to pc and is "playable" we are good!! I think the experience is what will matter the most for this one and as long as it is "playable" thats perfect
