Listen up, pilots. Star Wars Squadrons was recently announced, a space-faring pilot sim that sees you take control of some of the most iconic ships in the Star Wars universe. Battle it out in 5v5 multiplayer or experience a full single-player story that's fully compatible in VR. So what are the system requirements then? Will we be able to take off without a hitch? Let's take a look at the official Star Wars: Squadrons PC system requirements for VR and non-VR.

So first of all, as you can see below there are 3 sets of requirements, there's a minimum non-VR requirement, a recommended non-VR and minimum VR requirements, and finally the recommended VR requirements. So whether you're planning on venturing into the virtual cyberscape or not, these are the specs you'll need to run Star Wars: Squadrons on PC.

And lastly, the requirements listed here aren't all that much different from Star Wars: Battlefront 2, so depending on how well you can run that game, you should see similar performance results here. Now let's dive in...

Star Wars Squadrons minimum (non-VR) system requirements

Star Wars Squadrons recommended (non-VR) / minimum (VR) system requirements

Star Wars Squadrons recommended (VR) system requirements

In order to run the Star Wars: Squadrons recommended system requirements you will need a graphics card that is as powerful as a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480 and it should be paired with either a Ryzen 3 3200G or Core i7-7700 4-Core CPU as well as 16GB of system memory. With these specs it looks like we can expect 60fps on High graphics settings at 1080p monitor resolution in Star Wars Squadrons.

In order to run the Star Wars: Squadrons minimum system requirements you will need a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 GPU paired with a Ryzen R3 1300X or Core i5-7600 processor and 8GB of ram. Based on these requirements we can expect that Star Wars Squadrons will run at 60fps on Low settings at 1080p screen resolution.

At the moment, these requirements for Star Wars: Squadrons suggest that a player's PC can run the game at the recommended specs if it has 4 year old hardware components in it.

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

GPU vram requirements should be removed. There is no mention in official announcement and game-debate constantly throws random numbers.

GTX 1070 or RX 570? o.O
I know Frostbite engine games are partial to AMD cards, but sheesh.

I compared the specs to each other, the RX 570 is 50% weaker than the GTX 1070.


So I'm thinking the game is either less optimized on Nvidia's side or someone thought the RX 570 is is as powerful as the GTX 1070 (due to the 70 in both of the names, causing confusion) and put that instead of the Radeon RX 5600 6GB, the closest AMD equivalent.


IMO someone most likely listed the wrong GPU.

Maybe Rx 5700 and not 570

RX 5700 is even better than a GTX 1080 at this point, considering the recent driver updates. Saying that from my personal experience.

To what I've seen, RX Vega 56 is most closest equivalent to the GTX 1070 and 1070ti, sits right in the middle.

I just started thinking about it, and maybe it has to do with VRAM, since 570s are available with 8GB VRAM and are still pretty decent performers....... and from the looks of it, even the much more powerful RX 5600 XT and RTX 2060 would struggle to run this game in VR if that's the case since they're both only 6GB cards.

It still does not make sense,an rx 480 is listed as minimum vr requirement on the official ea page... the rx480 is faster than the rx570..

yeah, no idea, vega 56 is really what should be there in place of RX 570..... I've got this theory though(one I've had for a long time) that devs just pull these requirements out of thin air and have no clue what they're talking about. lol

Now, Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300X give better performance than i7 7700K for about 130 bucks, so the value of 4c/8t did go lower than gamers expected

In some workstation or rendering etc yeah it is ahead which is really impressive given the difference in where each product was/is on the market ladder. But gaming terms the 3100 is a good bit behind and for the 3300x is very comparable gaming wise, sometimes is ahead and sometimes vice versa, Workstation stuff it pulls a bit on the i7 which is impressive.
