CPU 11400F, ignore if you have good CPU
GPU: 3060 12GB will be very good, 3060TI is also very nice, make sure youa re getting it on MSRP
Ram go for 32GB DDR4 or 16GB DDR4
NVME SSD is a must if your motherboard cna support it, not SATA SSD, go for NvMe SSD.
Also turn off precision mouse pointer in mouse settings.
This is my spec, ran very well in Beta with uncapped frames, never dropped below 60 on high. I am waiting for 3080.
I think that a good setting is:
CPU: Intel core i7 11700 or AMD ryzen 5800x
GPU: RTX 3070 or AMD RADEON 6700XT
RAM: 2x16GB DDR4 with frequency which depend on the motherboard native, if you don’t want overclock the ram
SSD Nvme 500Gb for O.S. + SSD Nvme 1T or 2T
No no, you don’t need more than 16 GB of RAM. Absolutely not. - I don’t know of a single game that EVER used so much RAM. It will be like that for years to come as only a handful of games require 12GB or so.
A lot of memory allocation is on your graphics card, and if you are having to use your system’s RAM to load video game textures, then you’ve hit a bottleneck with your graphics card.
NVMe is not a MUST. SATA SSDs are fine. They’re wonderful, they’re fast, they’re often a bit cheaper. TigerAsteroid58 made a good point. I would opt for 1TB over 500GB and buy based on storage size, as long as it’s an SSD.
Please, help this person with ACCURATE information. What will run this game at 1440p?
A modern card with 8GB of RAM
2 sticks of 8 GB of system RAM,
Probably a quad core with 8 threads but 6 cores 12 threads is more solid.
Keep ur line.
I personally had issues cause browser used a lot of RAM(fixed by closing).
To seamlessly launch the game and be able to alt+tab into twich. U need more RAM than game uses.
Prefer using NVMe + HDD7200, but if 500Gb is enough - NVMe enough. U dont need SSD as high volume storage.
I played beta. Game used 7.6GB of VRAM on highest. Assuming aoe4 will also have UHD pack. U already needmore than 8GB VRAM. Any other game launched at 2022 would need 8GB VRAM as minimum.
The options were: 6GB or 12Gb → 12GB wins.
It’s not all about “to launch the game and do nothing”, it’s about PC experience.
