Fatshark has revealed the official PC system requirements for Warhammer 40: Darktide. The team has also confirmed that the game will support DLSS 3 at launch, and will have Ray Tracing effects for Global Illumination and Reflections.
PC gamers will at least need an Intel i5-6600 or an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 with 8GB of RAM and 50GB of free hard-disk space. With an NVIDIA GTX970 or an AMD Radeon RX 570, players can expect framerates between 30-45fps at 1080p with Medium settings and FSR.
For targeting 60fps at 1080p/Medium Settings, PC gamers will need an NVIDIA RTX3060 or an AMD Radeon RX 6800XT. That’s with DLSS or FSR enabled, so it appears that the game will be quite demanding, even without Ray Tracing.
Lastly, for maxing out its Ray Tracing effects, PC gamers will need an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080. Fatshark recommends using DLSS 3 on this GPU in order to get 100fps at 4K.
Warhammer 40K: Darktide will release on November 30th!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
