Rainbow Six Siege PC Specs Revealed
By Adam Cook
Over on Ubisoft's official blog, it's revealed exactly what kind of PC you'll need to run the latest (and hopefully greatest) Rainbow Six title.
The minimum specs:
Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64bit versions required)
Intel Core i3 560 @ 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.0 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5870 (DirectX-11 compliant with 1GB of VRAM) [See list of supported video cards down below]
DVD ROM Drive:
DVD-ROM Dual Layer
DirectX® 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers
Broadband connection with 256kbps upstream or faster
Despite offering non-competitive modes, obviously you need to be always online, but hey, this is an online shooter, so it's okay – right?
Those minimum specs aren't exactly monstrous, but they're not low-end, either. That said, if you're intending to play games on PC, then 6GB of RAM is the minimum you'd want to have, and it certainly doesn't require a super powerful GPU.
Ubisoft has also let us know what video cards are supported, so here's that list:
NVIDIA: GeForce GTX 460 or better, GTX 560 or better, GTX 650 or better, GTX 750 or better, or any card from the GT900 and Titan Series.
AMD: Radeon HD5870 or better, HD6870 or better, HD7770 or better, R7 260X or better, or any card from the R-300 series and Fury X
Laptop models of these cards "may" work but "are not supported", so bare that in mind.
