Activision has divulged a treasure trove of information about the PC version of Call of Duty: Vanguard. Unlike previous games in the franchise, Vanguard has fairly lax system requirements and will take up relatively less space on your hard drive.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is all set to hit PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.. Activision has now posted the hardware requirements for Call of Duty: Vanguard on PC.
The bare minimum system requirements for Call of Duty: Vanguard are surprisingly lax. One can get away with an eight-generation-old Intel Core i3-4340 or an AMD FX-6300 CPU and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 or an AMD Radeon RX 470 graphics card. Activision says that 2GB of VRAM should be enough to run the game, along with 8GB of system memory. Although not explicitly stated, the aforementioned configuration should ideally net you 30 FPS at 720p with all settings cranked to 'low'.
Things get iffy in the 'recommended' system requirements, especially on the CPU side of things. Call of Duty: Vanguard can apparently run fine on an ancient Intel Core i5-2500K and a more modern AMD Ryzen 5 1600X. On the graphics card side of things, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060/AMD Radeon RX 580 or any graphics card with 4GB of VRAM will suffice. Lastly, the game requires 12GB of system memory. This should ideally get you 1080p, 60 FPS with a few adjustments in the settings.
