System Requirements

Below are the minimum and recommended system requirements to run Core. As every PC is unique in terms of hardware, components, software, and tuning, your ability to run Core may vary depending on the setup of your machine.

Additionally, system tweaks such as overclocking may allow machines below the minimum to run Core. Any overclocking or other system tweaks performed by the user is at their own risk/discretion and may result in permanent damage to components.  Support is unable to provide any assistance or support for systems that do not at least meet the minimum requirements.

Minimum System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-7400 or AMD equivalent
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or AMD equivalent
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Recommended System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-7400 or AMD equivalent
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or AMD equivalent
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Will My PC Run Core?

Don't know if your PC will be able to run Core? Having difficulty installing or running Core? Please follow the steps later in this article to determine if your system meets the minimum requirements.

If you are unsure how to obtain your system specs, you can search "System Information" in your Search bar in the bottom-left (near the Start menu). Once in the System Information app, your system's components will display in the right panel (see below) To see your graphics/video card type(s), click Components >> Display and it/they will now display in the right panel (you may need to scroll down to see your video card/GPU as the onboard graphics are typically listed first):

Step 1: Windows 10 64-Bit

Your operating system (OS) must be Windows 10 64-Bit to run Core. The Installer will not allow you to install Core to a machine that does not have Windows 10 64-Bit.

 

Step 2: Processor/CPU

The processors listed below should be able to run Core. If your processor is not listed below, then chances are it will not be able to run Core. As a reminder, performance may vary based on the system's setup and your performance may differ.

If you are able to locate your graphics card in the tables above, please proceed to Step 4 below.


Step 4: Memory (RAM)

Core requires 8GB of RAM to run properly. Please keep in mind that your system must have 8GB of available physical memory. Available physical memory may differ from your total installed physical memory (RAM).

You can view your installed physical memory, total physical memory, and available physical memory in your System Information panel:

If you have enough available memory, please proceed to Step 4.

 

Step 4: HDD/SSD Storage Space

Core requires ~5GB of storage space on your HDD/SSD. Additionally, this may increase with each patch, update, or content release. Please ensure you have adequate space on your HDD/SSD.

 

Step 5: High-Speed Internet Connection

Your Internet connection must be fast enough to run Core. Certain connections may lack the speed required.

 

If you meet all of the system requirements listed above and continue to experience issues, please feel free to contact Support.
