Sony Pictures’ esteemed superhero Spider-Man is slinging his way to PC with a remastered version that brings ray-traced reflections. But will low-end PCs be able to run the game?
In 2018, Sony rolled out Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 with action-packed trailers and elaborate visuals. Everything was greatly detailed from puddles to Peter Parker’s webbing. However, the actual released product had less reflective waters, leading to the infamous Puddlegate controversy. That won’t happen in the remastered version, as Sony has revealed ray-traced reflections and NVIDIA DLSS for PC the version with uncompromised image quality.
These features may not work on your old computer, but fret not. Here are the minimum system requirement to run Spider-Man Remastered on a low-end PC.
Spider-Man Remastered system requirements
Spider-Man Remastered offers PC-specific features such as adjustable settings, extensive configurability, and ray-traced reflections that will make the PC experience unique. All of this may make the game choke on low-end devices. Players can still run the game by toning down the settings, but there are specific requirements need to be met.
To get 30 FPS in Spider-Man Remastered, players must have:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 (or AMD equivalent)
- Intel Core i3-4160 (or AMD equivalent)
- 8 GB RAM
- Windows 10
- 75 GB HDD
If your PC ticks these requirements, you should be able to play the game upon release on the August 12.
However, players may want to boot up the game on an optimal build to truly feel the experience of being Peter Parker and slinging across New York. Sony has introduced new techniques and tools for the PC that make the whole affair almost tangible. Besides ray-tracing, NVIDIA DLSS, and DLAA, the developer has added a wide range of display ratios and NVIDIA Surround multi-monitor setups.
The game’s heavy-duty features are aimed at powerful gaming rigs. Here are the recommended PC specs to run the game on maximum graphics settings.
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT
- Intel Core i7-12700K, 3.4 Ghz or AMD Ryzen 9 5900X
- 32 GB RAM
- Windows 10
- 75 GB SSD
Anything between the two rigs mentioned above should be able to run the game on minimal settings. Fortunately, PC players have comprehensive options to customize graphics to get maximum FPS on their builds. NVIDIA DLSS and DLAA simply boost frame rates and increases graphics performance, modes that are specifically for GeForce RTX owners. Those with moderate computer setups should be able to enjoy most new improvements comfortably.
