It's here, folks, the remaster of the ultimate Grand Theft Auto competitor has arrived in glorious, purple style. The lude, crude, and most definitely not prude Saints Row 3 Remastered has arrived, so let's take a look at the PC system requirements to see if you can run the latest game.

Before we begin, what's interesting here is that the developers have listed the performance expectations under each requirement, stating that the minimum system requirements for Saints Row 3 Remastered will see 720p resolution on Low settings. Whilst the PC recommended system requirements for the Saints Row the Third Remastered will see 1080p resolution on High settings.

Saints Row 3 Remastered Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD / Intel CPU, running at 3.4 GHz or higher: AMD FX 6000 series or Intel Core i5-3000 series or newer is recommended.
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU RAM: 4GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon 500 series or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or newer.
  • DX: 11
  • HDD: 46GB

Saints Row 3 Remastered Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD / Intel processor running at 3.5 GHz (AMD FX 8000 series or Intel Core i5 4000 series or newer is recommended).
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU RAM: 6GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 5700 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1000 series or newer.
  • DX: 11
  • HDD: 46GB

So first things first, the requirements here are a little vague and don't exactly give any clear indications as to what exact hardware will be required apart from CPU clock speeds and a couple example requirements. So we've gone ahead and translated it to the relatable hardware that is mentioned above.

For the minimum PC system requirements for Saints Row 3 Remastered you will need an Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-6200 processor together with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon RX 570 graphics card and 8GB of ram. What's interesting here is that the requirements ask for a GPU capable of 4GB of VRAM, but list the GTX 660 specifically which only has 2GB. Though, apart from that, we can see that Saints Row the Third Remastered is a pretty demanding game even to just get it running off the ground.

In order to run the recommended PC system requirements for Saints Row 3 Remastered you will need an Intel Core i5-4690 or AMD FX-8320 CPU coupled with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 5700 GPU and 16GB of ram. Once again we have some mismatched requirements, but overall the Saints Row the Third Remastered is a pretty demanding game, which should go to show much actual work has gone into remastering this game fully.

I played a bit, sick smooth 60fps lock at ultra settings But for sure, it will drop when I'll do something stupid like exploding tanks

The amount of work put in this remaster actually took me by surprise. Very rarely do we see a developer put in this type of effort. The game looks amazing and is really well-optimized to boot. Hats off to you Deep Silver Volition and Sperasoft.

A remaster is in the works. They found the source code for it again last year and two people are working on getting it fixed and working properly. The console DLC will be on PC too and everyone that owns it on Steam will get a free copy. Here's the link to the video

I can't be the only one that thinks that the PC-Version is a technical disaster? The game misses a frame every few seconds, the frametimes are all over the place ranging from 9 ms to 50 ms at times and the 60 fps bug at the beginning that you can fix by changing any setting is still there...

yeah i noticed this too, sometimes my game is stuck at 50fps gameplay and 25fps cutscenes, even when im lucky to get 60fps the microstutter ruins the game, as you say the frametimes are all over the place, and then there's the mouth movement, its really off, for now i wont properly play the game till they patch these issues
