Remedy Goofed in Recommending a GeForce 980 Ti for Quantum Break on PC

Clearing up confusion

There's seems to some confusion swirling around the release of Quantum Break, which was once touted as an Xbox One exclusive. That's no longer case—it's also shipping to Windows 10 PCs, and if you pre-order a copy for Xbox One before it launches on April 5th, you'll receive a complimentary copy for Windows 10 (plus a few other goodies, including Alan Wake on Xbox One).

That's a spiffy deal, especially if you have a teenager or someone else in the household that prefers consoles to PCs (as if!). This way you both win. Also, the game supports cross-platform saves, but not cross-platform play (it's a single-player title).

As for what it takes to run Quantum Break on PC, Remedy initially listed some pretty heavy hitting hardware for the recommended specs, including a Geforce Gtx 980 Ti. That's a $650ish graphics card, though Remedy later clarified that its initial list was for running the game at Ultra graphics settings—phew!

Here's a look at the updated systems requirements across the board:

Minimum

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • DirectX: DirectX 12
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 (2.7GHz) or AMD FX-6300
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260X
  • VRAM: 2GB
  • RAM: 8GB

Recommended

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • DirectX: DirectX 12
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 (3.9GHz) or AMD equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390
  • VRAM: 4GB
  • RAM: 16GB

Ultra

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • DirectX: DirectX 12
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790(4GHz) or AMD equivalent
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti or AMD Radeon R9 Fury X
  • VRAM: 6GB
  • RAM: 16GB

That's still some potent hardware for the recommended configuration, but much more manageable than what Remedy says you'll need to run the game at Ultra settings.

The other highlight here is the DirectX 12 requirement. That means if you're wanting to play Quantum Break on PC but are content with Windows 7 or 8.1, then yes, you'll have to upgrade to Windows 10—womp womp.
