UPDATE: Capcom has updated the official PC system requirements for Devil May Cry 5. They've had a little play around as we near DMC5's March 8th launch date, tweaking several important specs and simultaneously making Devil May Cry 5 easier to run whilst also raising the recommended specs.

Devil May Cry 5 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R7 260X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

Devil May Cry 5 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 6 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

First of all, then, the minimum system specs for Devil May Cry 5 have been lowered. Capcom says DMC5 can now be played with a much weaker Core i5-4460 or AMD FX-6300 CPU versus the previously suggest Core i7-4770 or Ryzen 5 1500X processors. Nvidia's minimum spec GPU for DMC5 stays the same while AMD's suggest GPU drops to a Radeon R7 260X. This is actually a much weaker video card than the GeForce GTX 760, perhaps indicative of Capcom's partnership with AMD for Devil May Cry 5. These lowered CPUs and GPUs contribute to an overall 15% decrease in system requirements.

There are big changes to be found in Devil May Cry 5's recommended system requirements as well. The CPUs have been switched for older Intel and AMD processors, although the Core i7-3770 and FX-9590 still have roughly the same performance as the Core i7-4770 and Ryzen 5 1500X. It's the graphics cards that make the biggest difference here/ Previously you could've got away with a low-end GTX 960 or Radeon R9 380 for playing DMC5 at 1080p/High, now you'll need a mid-range GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or Radeon RX 480 8GB graphics card.

In the chart below you can see how the system requirements have changed for Devil May Cry 5 since the original announcement. As you can see, the recommended specs for DMC5 have increased considerably while the minimum specs have lowered, ensuring DMC5 (2019) should run on a wider range of PC gaming systems.

Recommended represents 100% using our hardware algorithm, while the other figures represent the relative demand of the hardware.

For GeForce GTX 1060 6GB owners this now means you can expect a considerable drop in frame rates in Devil May Cry 5 compared to previously expected. Based upon the previous specs we estimated the GTX 1060 would hit 103 frames per second at 1080p / High in DMC5, whereas now we have revised this down to 60FPS.

Original Story: 21-Sep-2019 - Devil May Cry 5 PC System Requirements Revealed - Intel Core i7-4770 Minimum CPU

The devil hunters are back. Dante and Nero return for fast-paced demon-slicing action in Devil May Cry 5 early next year. Capcom's in-house team is back at the helm for DMC5, providing a true sequel to DMC 4. Devil May Cry 5 is the first in the series to be built using Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, offering the most detailed visuals yet seen in a Devil May Cry title. But what's that mean for PC performance and system specs? Here are the official DMC5 PC system requirements.

Devil May Cry 5 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R9 270X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

Devil May Cry 5 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 960 or Radeon R9 380
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

When looking at the system requirements for Devil May Cry 5, there's one thing that really sticks out. Both the minimum and recommended requirements for DMC5 are identical except for the graphics cards.

The suspicion is the system specs for Devil May Cry 5 could change a great deal between now and its March 9th release date. They could stay exactly as they are of course, although we believe the recommended GPUs may rise slightly while the minimum CPUs will actually drop. It won't be major changes but there's no way DMC5 needs a Core i7-4770 as the minimum spec processor.

In fact, if we look at Resident Evil 7's system requirements we get a decent idea of where both performance and system requirements are headed. DMC5 is based on the same RE Engine as Resident Evil 7 and features very similar system specs. However, the minimum CPUs ae a Core i5-4460 or an AMD FX-6300, so something along these lines is likely to end up as the minimum requirements CPUs for Devil May Cry 5.

When it comes to the graphics card though, the changes between now and launch could be far more minor. 60fps is going to be fairly crucial in a fast-paced character action game like Devil May Cry 5, so the recommended spec GPUs should definitely be seen as targets. If performance is similar to RE7, a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390 may be required for a locked 60fps with no dips.

He should wait for the Ryzen 3000 series. If they are as good as they are made out to be and they are configured and priced as rumored, the few months of wait is really worth it I would say, a 6 core/12 thread Ryzen 3 around 100$ and 8 core/16 thread ryzen 5 for around 200$ would be a much better deal than current gen ones.

He should go for a CPU that will give him 70-80% boost, a huge noticeable jump.
I am enjoying my 2700X well enough so I guess going for an 8 core/16 thread would be a good enough jump for him.
Granted Ryzen 3000 series will clock higher it is a good reason to get that as it also would be fast.

Yes that's the minimum for a good upgrade and it would be a great upgrade, but those 7nm Zen2 CPUs are worth a few months of waiting, especially if you want to get more powerful than current gen for the same price, or as powerful for a lower price. They will also have better single-core performance thanks to 7nm's higher clock speeds alone, let alone the rumored 17% IPC improvement.

@Maximuspop
Ok do this, get a Pentium 4 then get an i7 8700k, disable all but one core on the 8700k(make it a single core) and clock them equally let's say at 3Ghz. The 8700k would be about 4-5.35x times faster. Why? Well, it has a higher IPC, lower CPI, better instruction set, lower latencies, much better branch prediction, much better branch prediction penalty, it has much better and more FPUs and ALUs...

No probs, glad to help, but you are still wrong.
You don't need a specific, specific CPU, but what they mean by giving a specific CPU is that you need a CPU that has a combination of IPC, CPI and clock speeds and, core count, equally as good as the specified CPU. Now since there is only AMD and intel, your choices are limited.


Also, many developers don't spend tons of hours testing 1000s of system configurations, just run in on 4-5 systems they have available and that's it... that's why requirements are rarely accurate, usually NOT even accurate Enough.

Sad situation of unoptimization. Why do they do stuff like this? With such beefy requirements, gamers are discouraged from buying these games as they won't be able to get decent performance from this title. Gamers will just wait to buy this game when they have the money to afford upgrading their rig.


And then these game devs will cry out that their game didn't sell well in the release window which is the hottest windoow for game sales.

When you decide to upgrade I'd advise to go with AMD. They're making some killer CPU's + their mobos are better, in the sense that they'll support several generations of CPU's.

The price performance is definitely on AMD's side. Right now I'd say AMD's CPU's are highly competitive with Intel's. If it turns out that AMD's new CPU's will be made on the 7nm die they'll overtake Intel in performance and leave them in the dust.

Hi, you shouldn't have no problem at all to run this game at 1080p and all next games in an year. I know market of electric components go really fast now, but games still take time to design, so they work with your graphic card right now (not really the 2080, because it just get out)
Your processor is perfect for gaming either and you can overclock it so easily to 4.5GHz if it's not done already.

Damn your right, I just see your motherboard in your profile and you can't really overclock with it. but your psu will be good enough for an overclock at 4.5GHz with a cpu Vcore at +/- 1.3 . I take in consideration all your components and you will pull 510W in load. So for now your 6600k is not very useful and you should take a 6600 instead with this motherboard.You still have a nice pc :)

Either there is an error, or CAPCOM is assuming that the game should be played at 60FPS regardless of the resolution... Which is not absurd since it is a frantic Hack N Slash game where fluidity is very important.


EDIT: But I still find these CPU requirements exaggerated.
