PC System Analysis For Anthem Requirements
Anthem will require a high powered computer to get the best performance. Anthem will be built on the latest modified version of the Frostbite 3.0 graphics Engine, the same used for Battlefield V. We expect something in the region of a Intel i7 Anthem CPU requirement paired with GTX 1070 or perhaps a AMD RX Vega 56 graphics card to get high graphics settings for Anthem at 1080p screen resolution. Anthem will also probably call for 16GB system memory for high graphics settings.
