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

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.
