Genshin Impact is the next big mobile game this year - it is a Free-to-Play Action RPG from Chinese developer miHoYo of Honkai Impact 3 fame. The game made its debut just a week ago for PC, Mobile and PS4. While the system requirements for PC are pretty low, its mobile version is pretty demanding. In this article, we would list out Genshin Impact System requirements for both PC and mobile so that you would be able to check if your phone could handle the game.

1 - Genshin Impact System Requirements PC

Minimum requirements:

Below are the minimum requirements that your PC needs to reach to run the game

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 or equivalent
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 1030 and higher
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 30 GB of available space

Recommended requirements:

These are the ideal requirements to run Genshin Impact on PC - with these settings, you would be able to play the game and avoid lags and performance issues.

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 (equivalent) or higher
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB and higher
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 30 GB of available space

Overall, the game is pretty taxing - you could probably understand why the developers have to release it on multiple platforms instead of staying on mobile alone - there won't be enough players otherwise.

Related info:

  • Cross-save between PC and mobile platforms is supported - this means you can play the same account on both your phone and PC. The PS4 version does not have this function.
  • Cross-play is available across all platforms (PC, PS4, and mobile). This means players from all platforms would be able to connect and play together.
  • Pretty much no information about the switch version is available so far - not even a release date.

2 - Genshin Impact System Requirements Mobile

It's all about your device's processor when you are trying to run Genshin Impact - in this list, we would go from Low to High in Graphics Settings. To check your device's CPU and specs to see if it is on this list or not, you can just Google the name of your phone to see its specs.

If your phone's CPU is not on this list, chances that they are not strong enough to play the game. You can still test of course, if you are able to download the game from the Google Play Store (it would probably prevent your device from downloading a game you can't play). Apple devices probably can still run the game on Low, as only stronger devices were allowed to participate in the Closed Beta Testing.
