Baldur’s Gate 3 system requirements

The Baldur's Gate 3 system requirements won't test the constitution of most PCs, but it'd be wisdomous to ensure your rig has enough storage for the DnD RPG.

What are the Baldur’s Gate 3 system requirements? You must gather the right party of components before venturing forth into the world of Baldur’s Gate 3, but this quest shouldn’t prove too taxing. In fact, PCs built around the time of D&D 5e’s release back in 2014 should just about manage.

You won’t have to level up your rig with the best gaming CPU in order to meet the Baldur’s Gate 3 minimum specs. Processors comparable to the Intel Core i5 4690 or AMD FX 8350 will suffice, so long as they’re backed up by 8GB of memory. The game isn’t demanding when it comes to GPUs either, with developer Larian Studios suggesting the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 480 will be all you’ll need.

Here are the Baldur’s Gate 3 system requirements:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 64-bit Windows 10 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i5 4690
AMD FX 8350
Intel Core i7 8700K
AMD Ryzen 5 3600
RAM 8GB 16GB
GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
AMD Radeon RX 480
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
Storage 150GB 150GB

Unless you’ve failed a perception check, you’ll notice that the Baldur’s Gate 3 recommended specs are quite a bit more demanding. You’ll need double the amount of gaming RAM, 16GB to be precise, and a hexacore processor akin to the Intel Core i7 8700K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600.

Swapping out your pixel pusher with the best graphics card you have that mirrors or beats the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will greatly help improve frame rates and visuals. Additionally, the game supports both AMD FSR and Nvidia DLSS upscaling technologies that should boost fps with minimal fuss.

When it comes to Baldur’s Gate 3 size requirements, you’ll need to free up a whopping 150GB of storage to install it. Having the best SSD for gaming should alleviate this issue, and improve load times.
