We've had to wait a frustratingly long time for the original Devil May Cry trilogy to make its way to PC, but next month will be demon-slaying with the best of them, this time in glorious HD. For action fans, Devil May Cry HD Collection is a whole lot of ultra-balletic, fast-paced combat in a single package. Can your PC run Devil May Cry HD though? Find out with the Devil May Cry HD Collection PC specs. 

Devil May Cry HD Collection Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2115C 2.0GHz or AMD Athlon II X3 455 3.3 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R9 280
  • HDD: 12GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 9

Devil May Cry HD Collection Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8370 4.1 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 960 or Radeon R9 380
  • HDD: 12GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 9

We were spoiled yesterday by Sea of Thieves' system requirements, and it seems decidedly less care has been put into providing accurate for DMC HD Collection. We'll start with the minimum specs for Devil May Cry HD, which seem reasonable enough. You'll be needing a dual-core Core i3 CPU or equivalent, which just about everyone probably has. No issue there. It'll need to be backed up by 4GB RAM and a 12GB install for all three games.

Then we've got the GPUs. The GeForce GTX 760 and the Radeon R9 280 are about four years old now, so certainly showing their age somewhat, although they're only a minor step below the recommended graphics cards. As such, either Devil May Cry HD Collection doesn't have very many graphics options to mess around with, or you can actually get away with much weaker graphics cards. Considering this is just an HD rendering of the original, very old, games, and running on DX9 to boot, we'd estimate that something like a GeForce GTX 650 or Radeon HD 7750 shouldn't run into any major issues at lower resolutions. There's no guarantee on that front, but a GTX 760 does seem like a high minimum GPU.

Meanwhile, Devil May Cry Hd Collection's recommended CPUs really do kick things up a gear. Something equivalent to a Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8370 might be needed to high 60 frames per second, but again, it's difficult to envisage an older Core i5 having trouble.

As with any fast-paced character action like this though, it's almost imperative you target 60fps above all else in DMC for the best feeling gameplay. These games even hit 60fps on the PS2, so you can see how it was such a priority for Capcom. If that means dropping the graphics settings or the resolution, then this comes highly recommended. 

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

The CPU and RAM requirements for these old games are ridiculous!
Great games though just badly optimized.

Its a coin toss whether its funky system reqts or just badly optimized. In this particular case, my money is on the former.

Make false system requirements (not to mention poor optimization and unreal hdd space) to scam people into buying hardware, wait... profit. This has been done for at least 6 years now (some say this has been done since 2008 but i noticed it since 2012), a real conspiracy of the big software/hardware companies, no surprise here for those that realize this.

I can't tell if you're serious. Graphics cards can't be made fast enough as it is, what possible benefit would there be to artificially increasing the DMC system requirements?

I have the same question for the Crysis developers, who add Needless and Useless polygons, effects and so on just to make their games(Crysis 1 and Crysis 3 in particular) more demanding... and many infinite loops.

Demographics that are influenced by DMC is very very small. I don't think anyone would even bother to artificially up the requirements just to make them buy more hardware

These requirements are BS... I can run even the reboot DMC/DMC 5 maxed out at 2560x1080 with 100fps+... let alone re-textured 2005, 2003 and 2001 games...
