Need for Speed Heat won't be a demanding title

EA have officially revealed the minimum and recommended PC specs for the upcoming racer Need for Speed Heat. The specs are pretty reasonable and require GTX 1070 for 1080p 60 FPS gameplay.

EA's racing series Need for Speed is set to become richer for another instalment next month. Named Need for Speed Heat, the upcoming title will feature both day and night races, a ton of customisation options and more.

Today, we have a first look at minimum specs and recommended system requirements you'll need to play Need for Speed Heat on your PC. Players with low-end machines will be happy to hear that EA did a pretty good job optimising the game so Need for Speed Heat will run nicely on older hardware.

To race on minimum graphics settings and resolution in 30 FPS, you'll need AMD FX-6350 or equivalent or Core i5-3570 or equivalent for the CPU while Radeon 7970/Radeon R9 280x or GeForce GTX 760 will be enough for the graphics cards. On top of this, Need for Speed Heat requires 8 GB of RAM and 50 GB of storage space.

Need for Speed Heat won't be demanding even on highest settings in 1080p resolution. To achieve steady 30 FPS, AMD Ryzen 3 1300X or equivalent or Core i7-4790 or equivalent is required while Radeon RX 480 or GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards are the sweet spots.
