The next Deus Ex needs a GTX 970 or RX 480 to shine at 1080p

— 10:00 AM on August 15, 2016

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided arrives August 23, and developer Eidos has released the system requirements aspiring augs will need to meet in order to run the game. Here are the minimum specs:

  • OS: Windows 7.1SP1 or above (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD equivalent
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7870 (2GB) or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 (2GB)
  • HDD/SSD: 45 GB

And here are the game's recommended specs (apparently chosen for a good experience at 1920x1080):

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K or AMD FX 8350 Wraith
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 480 - 1920 x 1080 or NVIDIA GTX 970 - 1920 x 1080
  • HDD/SSD: 55GB (Including DLC) 

While the game's minimum specs aren't anything to get worked up about, the recommended specs do require a relatively recent slate of graphics cards to let the game shine at 1080p. Folks with high-end Ivy Bridge CPUs (and probably even Sandy Bridge chips) can continue cruising along for now, though.

Mankind Divided will apparently be another flagship Gaming Evolved title for AMD. We've previously reported that the game will have DirectX 12 support from day one, and though we haven't gotten official word on the DX12 features the game will implement, it's not too much of a stretch to imagine it'll feature the asynchronous compute shaders that Radeon cards seem to do so well with these days. Given that likelihood, it'll be interesting to see how Mankind Divided performs with the latest graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD.

Mankind Divided is available for pre-order now on Steam at $59.99 for the base game, or $89.98 for the Digital Deluxe Edition. The game will begin preloading for Steam buyers on Friday, August 19 at noon Eastern Time.
