What is Apex Legends Requirements On PC?

As Apex Legends is a new game that was released in 2019, the system requirements can be demanding - especially if you want to play the game at max settings with a smooth 60fps at all times. However, if you just only want to enjoy the game without caring about the graphics, then Apex Legends is actually not that demanding. And here, let's take a look at Apex Legends PC requirements:

Apex Legends system requirements - PC Version:

Apex Legends Minimum Requirements:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHz / AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • RAM: 6GB
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 / Radeon HD 7730
  • GPU RAM: 1 GB

  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290

As we can see above, the Apex Legends system requirments are not that demanding if you only want the game to be playable, requiring only a GeForce GT 640 GPU - which is a pretty old and cheap GPU. However, as this is the Apex Legends minimum system requirements, you can only play the game with the lowest settings - and you might even have to lower the game's resolution if you want the FPS to be stable at all times. Also, take notice that the RAM requirements are a little bit high even in the minimum requirements for Apex Legends - 6GB RAM minimum.
