Crackdown 3 PC system requirements

Can your setup run Crackdown 3? Check over the minimum and recommended Crackdown 3 PC requirements.


Crackdown 3 is soon to release, meaning it's time for PC players to check out the game's minimum and recommended system requirements. While the power requirements outlined by the developers at Xbox Game Studios aren't exactly steep, there may be a few surprises in store for players who haven't upgraded their computer in a while. Find out if your system is up to snuff by glancing over the PC system requirements for Crackdown 3.

Crackdown 3 minimum and recommended PC system requirements

An examination of the Crackdown 3 PC requirements show that the game requires a machine with only a small amount of grunt. A third- or fourth-generation i5 processor is recommended, coupled to a system with at least 8GB of RAM and hopefully a relatively late-model GPU. Here are the full details as provided through the Crackdown 3 Microsoft store page:

Crackdown 3 minimum system requirements:

  • Intel i5 3470 or AMD FX-6300 processor
  • 8GB system RAM
  • GeForce GTX 750 Ti or Radeon R7 260X 2GB GPU
  • DirectX 12 API
  • Windows 10

Crackdown 3 recommended system requirements:

  • Intel i5 4690 or AMD FX-8350 processor
  • 8GB system RAM
  • GeForce GTX 970/1060 or Radeon R9 290X/RX 480 4GB GPU
  • DirectX 12 API
  • Windows 10

With all things considered, the Crackdown 3 system requirements shouldn't rule out many PC players. Given that the recommended specs call for a fourth-generation i5 and a GeForce GTX 1060, it's pretty safe to say that most gamers with machines and components from the last few years should be able to run the game easily. Those with higher-end specs, even if they're high-end by 2017 standards, still shouldn't have any problem running the game at high or even ultra settings.

Does your machine meet or match the Crackdown 3 minimum or recommended PC system requirements? If not, it might be time to track down a new GPU or a few extra sticks of RAM.
