The system requirements for Hogwarts Legacy have been published on Steam. Surprisingly, there is sometimes a very small difference between the minimum and the recommended requirements.
Hogwarts Legacy is a new action role-playing game set in the Harry Potter universe. In order to be able to enter the open world for the release in February, players must have at least halfway up-to-date hardware: The system requirements for the game were recently published on Steam.
The minimum requirements are in a range that is usual for modern games. Specifically, the developers require either an Intel Core i5-8400 or an AMD Ryzen 5 2600. In addition, there is talk of at least 8 GB of RAM and a DirectX 12-capable graphics card. Avalanche Software names a Geforce GTX 1070 or a Radeon RX Vega 56 as the lower limit for the pixel accelerators used. This should allow players to play Hogwarts Legacy in 1080p with low details and 60 fps. If you have weaker hardware, you can probably still play the game without high frame rates.
On the other hand, if you have a little more power, you can do Hogwarts Legacyprobably play directly in high details: As part of the recommended system requirements, Avalanche Software lists 16 GB of RAM, a Core i7-8700 or Ryzen 5 3600 and a Geforce GTX 1080 Ti or a Radeon RX 5700 XT. The memory requirement also remains the same at 85 GB, but Avalanche Software requires the use of an SSD for the high graphic details. The minimum requirements, on the other hand, also mention HDD support.

Assuming perfect resolution scaling, Hogwarts Legacy could only be tight for UHD gamers: A graphics card that is four times faster than a GTX 1080 Ti does not yet exist. By the time the game is released, both AMD and Nvidia will have new top-of-the-line GPU models, and in an emergency you can of course use reduced anti-aliasing or an upscaling algorithm. How much that brings in the end, we will probably find out in February.
