It's official folks, as we finally have a release date for Halo Infinite, launching on December 8th this year. The game is also now available for pre-order, and with the Steam Store page now up we finally also know the official system requirements for when the game launches in Holiday 2021.

So what kind of PC hardware is needed to run Halo Infinite at the minimum and recommended specs? Well, unfortunately for us Halo Infinite seems to be a pretty demanding game. If you want to play it at its best then you will need some pretty recent hardware. Minimum requirements might be a bit much for some people, especially after the Halo: The Master Chief Collection ran so well on PCs recently. Though if you're rocking some old mid-range hardware then you should be fine at least.

So let's take a look at the official Halo Infinite PC system requirements...

Halo Infinite minimum system requirements

Halo Infinite recommended system requirements

You will need either a Core i7-9700K or Ryzen 3700X processor coupled with an RTX 2070 or RX 5700 XT graphics card in order to run the Halo Infinite recommended system requirements. This setup should deliver around 60fps performance at 1080p resolution on High graphics settings. RAM required is 16GB.

Looking at the Halo Infinite minimum system requirements you will require a GTX 1050 Ti or RX 570 GPU paired with either a Core i5-4440 or FX-8370 CPU to reach the Halo Infinite minimum specs, which should deliver around 60fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution. System memory required is 8GB.

Overall, looking over the recommended Halo Infinite system requirements you will need around a 3 year old PC in order to run at its best.

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

Oof... I know most system requirements these days are exaggerated, but it still looks like I might be looking at only medium settings at best on for smooth fps (GTX 1650 Mobile GDDR6). Here's hoping the game is as well optimized as the MCC titles. They run smoothly on the Vega 7 iGPU on my Ryzen 5 5500U if you tweak the settings a bit.

Me thinks my aging vehicle of graphics will chug.

your cpu is holding your gpu back by a lot. I had an overclocked 8350 that was consistently over 5ghz and it would strangle my previous 1080, let alone a 1080ti.

even at these lower speeds you can see that piledriver still bottlenecks those gpus. there is less than a 1000 point difference between 1 and 2 cards. 1 gpu with a 3800x only got beat in 1 test. a better gpu isn't going to help you at this point.

Seems like a demanding title, are we sure that those recommended are for 1080p ultra and not 1440p or 4k? minimum req seems a little bit high but still almost on par with most demading titles talking about cp 2077 , ms flight sim and the medium

It requires an octa-core cpu? Wow!!! Very demanding game!

Chances are you can get easily get away using a cpu with less cores. As it is, games (including open world ones) mainly use the GPU anyway, The worst that can happen is a bottleneck which results in FPS loss, but if the GPU is powerful enough anyway that won't be noticeable.

RTX 2070 recommended? I think it will be the case if you want to play with ray-tracing.

I don't think it is, RX5700XT isn't that far behind and that definitely isn't for raytracing. Though it does feel like they are pretty conservative with requirements, rather going above and it might be another Witcher 3 situation where minumum requirements get you running at 1080p medium, I think. Plus considering that it is supposed to have also previous gen version, it likely will be very scalable with dropping some settings. But I guess we will see with benchmarks.

Yeah it should be scalable and that will prove to be a good thing as I still can't get my hands on a decent new GPU.
