Codemasters' latest racing sim Dirt 5 is releasing in a couple months on October 16th after being delayed by a week, but how demanding will the game be when it hits our PC systems? Will we need the horsepower of a high-end car engine to run smoothly? Let's take a look at the official PC system requirements for Dirt 5...

Dirt 5 minimum system requirements

Dirt 5 recommended system requirements

In order to run the Dirt 5 recommended requirements you will need a GTX 1070 Ti or Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card with a Core i5-9600K or Ryzen 5 2600X processor, achieving high graphics setting at 1080p resolution. 16GB of RAM will also be needed to achieve the Dirt 5 recommended specs and get 60FPS.

In order to run the minimum system requirements for Dirt 5 you will need a graphics card that's at least as powerful as a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 480 paired with an FX-4300 or Core i3-2130 3.4GHz CPU. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on Low graphics setting at 1080p resolution. Minimum RAM requirements are 8GB system memory.

Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 12 or Dirt 5 won’t run. We suggest a 3 year old PC in order to play smoothly.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Dirt 5 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Dirt 5 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Dirt 5 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

I think the requirements are a little bit high on the gpu side.

they should specify what these specs are for 1080p medium 30fps? 60fps? or 1080p ultra 120fps? or 4k ultra 30?
that is massively helpful
Plus with Dirt5 on next gen targeting 120fps I think thats the recommendation we getting here

For the past idk, 10 years, I feel like the norm has been 1080p60, since the majority of the people own 1080p60 screens.

The unpopular opinion - Requirements aren't based upon consoles and can keep going up independently. Unless someone here is programming these games, they have nothing to base the idea that any of these are too high. I'm sure pulling the requirements for the previous games would show that theywent up each time a new one was released.
On that note, these are perfectly acceptable requirements.

dirt rally 2.0 (2019) has the same cpu requirements but gpu requirements only went up minimum HD7750 or GTX650Ti and recommended RX Vega 56 or GTX 1070 to whats above makes them perfectly acceptable. an update to the engine would account for that.

Pretty obvious that DiRT 5 was made for next generation consoles. I'm sure the PS4 and Xbox One will get versions but pretty clear with these requirements that Codemasters has the future in mind.

I'm probably going to buy an RTX 3080 when they come out and then I can feel safe again lol. Not that the 1080 is slow, but I'm trying to run at 1440p 100+ fps so I need all the power I can afford
