Capcom says 16 GB of RAM is required for the recommended experience, as well as a GTX 1070 for 1080p 60fps gameplay with the “Focus on Screen Quality” setting ticked. Naturally, if you want to turn on ray tracing you will need a compatible RTX card. RTX 3070 owners will be able to attain 4K 60fps gameplay. You can see the full specs in the tweet below:
