EA and Respawn Entertainment revealed PC system requirements for Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order but quickly corrected them as the recommended ones appeared to require a bit too much RAM.

Respawn Entertainment seem to have optimised Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order well since the minimum requirements are the equivalent of weaker hardware than that found in consoles. For example, an i3-3220 or AMD FX-6100 CPU will do the job and GPU minimum requirement lists a seven year old GeForce card and a five year old AMD card. Both of them were mid to lower tier even back at release.

Full minimum requirements are:

  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
  • CPU: Intel i3-3220 / AMD FX-6100
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 650 / Radeon HD 7750
  • DirectX 11
  • Disk space: 55GB

Recommended specs are a bit odd as the initial information stated Jedi Fallen Order requires 32 GB of RAM but that was later rectified into 16 GB. Similarly to minimum specs, these are not on the more expensive end of the corresponding spectrum, not even specifying RTX GPU series on NVidia's side. 

Interestingly enough, DX 12 is not listed in recommended specs so Windows 10 is not tied to them either. For those unacquainted, Windows 7 doesn't support DX 12, which is the reason many games list Win 10 in recommended configurations.

Full recommended specification is:

  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
  • CPU: Intel i7-6700K / AMD Ryzen 7 1700
  • RAM: 16GB (used to be 32GB, remains to be seen if 16 will work well enough after all)
  • GPU: GTX 1070 / AMD RX Vega 56
  • DirectX 11
  • Disk space: 55GB

Considering none of the listed components are among the most expensive and advanced hardware available at the time of writing, Respawn certainly earned a commendation for optimising the game well both on low and high end side of things.
