Atomic Heart is shaping up to be quite a mystery at the moment. With little to no transparency on development, and no release date in sight yet. Though despite all this developers Mundfish have given us a brand new update regarding some early PC system requirements.

So far things are looking pretty good, with a GTX 1060 and 8GB of RAM as the recommended specs. It certainly helps that they are planning to release the game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last-gen consoles.

It goes without saying though that these are early PC requirements and may change up until release. One thing that sticks out is the obvious lack of ray tracing requirements considering AH will be supporting the technology as well as DLSS. Either way, let's dive in and take a look at the Atomic Heart PC system requirements...

Atomic Heart minimum system requirements

Atomic Heart recommended system requirements

In order to meet Atomic Heart's recommended system requirements you will need a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 580 graphics card that should then be paired with either a Core i7-4770K or Ryzen 5 1500X processor. 8GB of system memory is also required and should achieve 60fps at High graphics settings.

You will need a GPU that's at least as powerful as a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 290 in order to meet the Atomic Heart minimum requirements. You will also need either a FX-6300 or Core i5-2500K CPU as well as 6GB of RAM. This should deliver 60fps on the Low graphics settings.

Looking over the specs above we can estimate that at least a 5 year old PC will be able to run Atomic Heart smoothly.

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

Apparently this game has been in development since 2008.

Nope. Just nope. The GTX 1060 as recommended is just a lie as every single developer has said in recent times due to it being the most popular GPU and publishers want sales. GTX 1060 can't run any of those games at High 60 fps.


However I am very excited for this game.

That's exactly what I thought. 1060 is a weak card, but it's cheap and popular. It's gotta be listed here to increase sales from people hoping to run the game well, but I'm certain it won't run that well on a 1060.

If they would have stated 1070 for 60 fps at High not Ultra, then that would have been much more palatable.

Probably yeah, I mean looking at it, they didn't even commit to any settings, FPS count or anything with requirements. So for all we know it could be 30FPS target or whatever. Plus whole thing about game not being out soon, means that this could easily change. And no one could hold them responsible, since they never stated at which settings, resolution or FPS. As far as I know.

Yeah, this is probably not even going to be 1080p60 (at least not for ultra), judging from what I've seen and the requirements WILL change in the future. I've watched a russian guy who got access to play the game at the Mundfish studio, he went in depth about what the game is like, the enemies, the gameplay and the performance was still sub-optimal. Granted, still tons of work left, but saying a 1060 is "recommended" is a far cry from what it will be in reality, I'd say.

That's pretty nice, assuming that's a "next-gen" game by using last version of UE4 and ray tracing, I believed the game wouldn't run well on a 1060.
8Gb in recommended is quite rare nowadays.
Maybe it'll run better than expected
