Minimum PC Requirements for Hogwarts Legacy

For those just looking to play the latest game that’s taking the wizarding world by storm, there’s good news: An all-powerful system won’t be necessary. With that in mind, here is the bare minimum your PC will need in order to run Hogwarts Legacy:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 (3.3 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 (3.2 GHz)
  • Memory: 16GB
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 4GB or AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 85GB

If your PC meets those requirements, great! You’ll be able to play the game on low quality settings at 720p resolution and 30fps. It’ll work best on an SSD, but there is HDD support.

Of course, if you’re looking for what may turn out to be a more fruitful gaming experience, then your computer will have to be a whole lot better than the bare minimum. If your PC boasts the following specs, that’ll certainly do the trick:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel i7-8700 (3.2 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (3.6 GHz)
  • Memory: 16GB
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 1080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or INTEL Arc A770
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 85GB

If all that looks like a match, then you’ll be able to enjoy Hogwarts Legacy on high quality settings at 1080p and 60fps. Once again, an SSD is the recommendation. If you’re looking to push even further, however, there are Ultra and Ultra 4K Specs to consider. Of course, something even heftier will be required in order to journey through Hogwarts with these specs.
