Thanks to Nvidia, we've got the full system requirements for next week's Jurassic World Evolution. Last time around we only had the minimum specs but now we've got the recommended PC hardware for JW: Evolution. As expected, they fall closely in line with Frontier's other management sim, Planet Coaster. We've added the full system requirements to the original article below.

In addition to this, we've also got the full range of PC graphics settings available to tweak in Jurassic World Evolution. If it's anything like Planet Coaster, Jurassic World Evolution is going to be an immensely demanding game to run, so it's going to be important there's wide range of graphics options to tweak.

Original Story: 29-Mar-2018 - Jurassic World Evolution Minimum System Requirements Revealed

It wasn't the best-kept secret, but Frontier has revealed that Jurassic World Evolution will be coming to PC on June 12th, right in time for the new movie. Jurassic World Evolution is based heavily on Planet Coaster, but this time with an element of danger as players must react to harsh weather conditions, power cuts, and escaped dinosaurs rampaging through their park. It sounds heavenly, to be honest, but is it even more demanding than Planet Coaster? Frontier has provided the official minimum specs for Jurassic World Evolution.

Jurassic World Evolution Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8GHz or AMD FX-4300 3.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB or Radeon HD 7850 2GB
  • HDD: 8GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Jurassic World Evolution Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 6 GB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580
  • HDD: 8GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Jurassic World Evolution PC Graphics Settings

  • Ambient Occlusion: Off, Low, Medium, High, Ultra
  • Anti-Aliasing: Off, Temporal Anti-Aliasing, Upscaled Temporal Anti-Aliasing
  • Atmospherics Quality: Off, Low, High
  • Foliage Detail: Low, Medium, High
  • Geometry Detail: Low, Medium, High, Very High
  • Global Illumination: Off, Low, High
  • Post-Process Quality: Off, Low, High
  • Rain: Low, High
  • Screen Space Reflections: Off, On
  • Shader Quality: Low, Medium, High
  • Shadows: Off, Lowest, Low, Medium, High, Very High
  • Texture Quality: Low, Medium, High
  • Water Quality: Low, Medium, High, Ultra
  • Wind: Low, High

Jurassic World Evolution's minimum specs are almost identical to Planet Coaster aside from the graphics cards. For Jurassic World Evolution a GeForce GTX 650 Ti or Radeon HD 7850 is the minimum, while for Planet Coaster it was a GTX 560 or the very same Radeon HD 7850. So, not a whole lot in it then, and then the same applies to the recommended specs. Everything stays the same as Planet Coaster, bar an increase in suggest GPU. Previously, a GeForce GTX 970 would suffice, but now you'll be needing the slightly more powerful GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or a Radeon RX 580. The additional VRAM on offer is likely to come very handy.

If Planet Coaster is any sign, then we can expect JW:E to be extremely resource intensive with the larger parks. Frame rates will be heavily impacted by your CPU. A faster CPU will be able to cope with higher guest counts and larger parks. Fortunately, a, ahem, jurassic park will be considerably less complex than the huge rollercoasters and custom designs of Planet Coaster. It's the dinosaurs plus a few fences, so it should be a lot easier to deal with on the CPU end. This is likely how Jurassic World Evolution is also launching on the consoles, a move which probably isn't possible for Planet Coaster.

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

The difference between minimum and recommended GPU is huge. Hope it's well optimized.

Planet coaster alpha ran great on high settings on my potato laptop, but when it came out the performance was around 30% worse (I assume it's denuvo), hopefully JWE runs great, definitely getting it on nearest sale.

Really? Absolutely tanks my system once I get a decent sized park. It's easy to run with a fairly basic theme park but once you start putting some major stuff in it really slows down.

Let's hope it runs a little better than planet coaster.

gtx980 or r9 380? Umm the r9 380 is equivalent to the gtx960 so... How does that work? I can only assume its a mistake.

Also 4770 or 8350, when the 8350 struggles to keep up with even a 2500/2500k.

Hopefully it runs better than Planet Coaster. That game is borderline unplayable even on my "decent" rig

You know **** about the game, how dare you correct the recommend RAM - btw. Battlefield 3 already was scratching the 8 GB RAM limit if pagefile was disabled and you had additionally 1 chrome page open. RAM demand will increase in the future and you guys can't stop it, especially with tech advance.

First of all i dont recommend disabling pagefile for anyone, now 8gb of ram is still enough for decent gaming (though more on the budget side), just handful of games stutter, for example cod ww2, idk how its now but pubg used to choke on 8gb of ram too. I have to admit i am seeing this game first time but watching from other recommended specs 8gb of ram should suffice on max settings.

Now if someone still have 8gb of ram of course they are going to turn of as many unnecessary programs as possible and by doing it usually its enough to game on 8gb of ram though we are seeing its getting close when 12gb of ram is needed.

i picked for a friend one decent laptop 3 months ago with coffee lake i5, nvidia mx150 and 4gb of ram. Its nice that you can always upgrade ram in laptops and its very easy! How it runs AAA games? Curious since its been very long time i had 4gb of ram.

lol love how lopsided the GPU requirements are.... on the minimums, they weigh towards better Nvidia optimization, and on recommended they weigh towards better AMD optimization...... good to see we have some consistency here! xD
Still.... can't wait for this game, also hope we get a more action oriented Jurassic World game soon..... maybe an FPS or a 3rd person Witcher 3 style open world game..... THAT would be awesome!
