Need For Speed Payback Requires A GTX 1060/RX 480 To Max Out At 1080P

EA is getting ready to release yet another installment into their Need For Speed franchise, we previous titles failing to satisfy a number of players, EA promises to finally deliver this time. EA has kept gamers well-informed about the release of the game even before E3 2017, which kind of makes me wonder about how many players are they going to lure in this time around with Payback. With Nvidia often being at the forefront to show off early footage of unreleased titles, Nvidia has been very active about showing off what their GPUs are capable of and how well they max out titles with their lineup of GPUs.

Yesterday, not only did Nvidia show off their GTX 1080Ti maxing the game out at 4K/60FPS, but they also released the minimum specifications for the title. Here’s the requirements to run Need For Speed Payback on PC.


Minimum Requirements For 720p / 30FPS At Low Settings

OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later
CPU: Intel i3 6300 @ 3.8GHz or AMD FX 8150 @ 3.6GHz with 4 hardware threads
RAM: 6 GB
DISC DRIVE: DVD ROM drive required for installation only
HARD DRIVE: 30GB
VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti or GTX 1050, or equivalent
DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
INPUT: Dual analog controller
ONLINE CONNECTION REQUIREMENTS: 192 KBPS or faster Internet connection

Recommended Requirements For 1080p / 60FPS At High Settings

OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
CPU: Intel i5 4690K @ 3.5GHz or AMD FX 8350 @ 4.0GHz with 4 hardware threads
RAM: 8GB

HARD DRIVE: 30GB
VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, or equivalent

Now while the requirements aren’t too shabby, the game definitely seems to be well optimized on paper. If these are the general requirements for the game, most probably gamers with a single GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti should be able to max the game out at 4K. Now let’s not wander off too far and hope that EA launches Need For Speed Payback with full stability on PC.
