PC System Analysis For Space Engineers Requirements
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce GTX 780/Radeon R9 290 and it should be paired with either a Phenom II X4 900e/Core i5-655K 3.2GHz CPU to match the Space Engineers recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. 16 GB will also be needed to achieve the Space Engineers rec specs and get 60FPS. You should also have 8 GB system memory for min specs. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Space Engineers needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11. We suggest a 7 year old PC to play smoothly.
