Fantasies For You To Try: Can Your Hardware Handle Final Fantasy 15?

By  |  0 Comments

People have been clamoring over Final Fantasy 15 ever since it was released. Whether it was because of the graphics, the story line, the unique characters or the fun battle system, there was a lot to talk about. This game has finally come to PC and mobile systems. Many people are worried that their system won’t be able to handle the graphics, so let’s discuss the necessary requirements to ensure that you get the best experience possible.

PC Minimum Requirements

To be completely honest, the PC minimum requirements look like the maximum requirements for other games. This game has some of the best graphics ever seen. Your computer must have amazing specs just to get the game to run properly.

The CPU needs to be at least i5-2,400 with a processing power of 3.1GHz. That’s somewhere in the middle of mid-tier and high-end. You will also need 2GB of VRAM, 8GB of RAM, an Nvidia graphics card to get the best graphics and around 170GB of space on your hard drive. If you bought your computer within the last year, then you should be able to at least squeeze by. If it’s any older, then you might want to check your hardware before downloading the game.

You should be able to download a demo or use a hardware checker to ensure that your system can at least run the game on low settings. The only problem is that you may encounter lags and other problems if your hardware is not strong enough.

PC Best Requirements

If you really want those graphics to shine and the game to run as smoothly as possible, then you need even better hardware. The ideal CPU is a quad-core i7-3770 with a processing power of 3.4GHz. You’ll want top-tier graphics cards, 11GB of VRAM and 16GB of RAM. The majority of computers are not initially installed with this much VRAM, so you’ll need a gaming computer or to install the hardware yourself.

This represents the pinnacle of computing power right now. Most games don’t require systems specs anywhere near this, so you’ll likely just be using it for this game until even more graphics-heavy titles are released. That being said, a machine like this should be useful for many years as the power is very impressive.

Android Requirements

Though not as graphics-heavy, the mobile version has more reasonable requirements. The only stated requirement is that a user must have an OS version of Android 4.0.3 or higher to play Final Fantasy 15. As long as you have that, you should have no problem downloading and playing.

If you want the graphics to look as good as possible and your raids to run smoothly, then you’ll want a modern device. Having 1GB or 2GB of RAM should be plenty, with the sweet spot being at least 1.5GB of RAM. A strong dual-core or quad-core CPU running at around 1.2GHZ to 1.5GHZ should give you enough power to get everything out of this game.

If you’re interested in seeing what this new Final Fantasy has to offer but don’t have a monstrously powerful PC, consider checking out the mobile version. It takes on a more city-building element where you have to forge alliances with nearby empires to protect your own kingdom and to quickly decimate others in your area.

Conclusion

The newest Final Fantasy was a smash hit with players because it hit all the right areas. You can now experience the fun through PC or Android systems. The mobile version is great if you want to take the action on the go, while the PC version gives you a graphically marvelous adventure. Just be sure to check your specs before downloading the game.
