EA slightly changes the CPU PC requirements for Star Wars Squadrons

A couple of weeks ago, we shared the official PC system requirements for Star Wars Squadrons. However, it appears that Electronic Arts has made some changes to the CPU requirements for both Intel and AMD platforms.

According to the previous requirements, the game needed at least an Intel i5-7600. However, EA has now listed the Intel i5 6600k as the minimum required CPU. On the other hand, the publisher now recommends an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. Previously, EA recommended an AMD Ryzen 3 3200G. Furthermore, the game will now require 40GB of free hard-disk space (instead of 30GB).

Thankfully, there aren’t any changes to the RAM or the GPU requirements. Thus, EA still recommends using an AMD Radeon RX 480 or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 for non-VR. For VR gaming, the publisher recommends using an AMD Radeon RX 570 or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070.

You can find below the revised PC system requirements for Star Wars Squadrons.
