Why Specifications Matter

Why should you care about specs? The right hardware ensures that you experience the game in all its glory—smoothly, with stunning graphics, and without lag. It enhances your gameplay, making every encounter, decision, and victory more immersive and enjoyable.


The Essentials: Minimum Specifications

Baldur's Gate 3 is a demanding game, with its high-quality graphics and complex mechanics. Ensuring your PC meets these minimum specifications is essential for a smooth experience. Here’s what you need:

Processor (CPU)

  • Minimum: 4th Gen Intel i5
  • Recommended: 12th Gen Intel core i7 or higher.

A powerful CPU is necessary to handle the intricate gameplay and detailed environments of Baldur's Gate 3, and while an i5 will definitely allow you to play the game at reasonably settings - you may find your performance drops in the third act of the game where the denser environments and increase in NPCs can really bog down your CPU.
This is why we recommend an i7 CPU if possible, as it will help keep your performance smooth in the later areas of the game.

Memory (RAM)

  • Minimum: 8 GB RAM
  • Recommended: 16 GB or Higher

More RAM ensures smooth gameplay, especially during intense battles and when managing multiple in-game systems. During long play sessions of Baldurs Gate 3 many players have noticed that their RAM usage can increase drastically to the point where 8GB is just not enough! We recommend 16GB or higher to have a smooth gaming experience.

Graphics Card (GPU)

  • Minimum: Nvidia GTX 1650
  • Recommended: Nvidia RTX 4060

A solid GPU is crucial for rendering the stunning graphics and smooth animations that make Baldur's Gate 3 so visually impressive!

We recommend an RTX 4060 if you're looking to play at high settings at Full HD resolutions, but if you're on a budget or you're happy to play at lower settings an Nvidia GTX 1650 will get you in the door!
