Blizzard has updated the system requirements for the Diablo 4 beta starting this week. The currently low system requirements are paid for by limitations in the game graphics.
That was probably too euphoric: At the beginning of March, PCGH reported on the manageable hardware requirements of Diablo 4, also in the context of the beta. But these have a good reason, as Blizzard now adds.
Low requirements due to low quality
So far the developer of Diablo 4 mentionedis now submitted.

As a reminder: The minimum requirement for the Diablo 4 Beta is a Core i5-2500K or an FX-8100, 8 GiB RAM and a GTX 660 or a Radeon R9 280. The recommendations are a little less prehistoric. Here Blizzard names a Core i5-4670K or a Ryzen 3 1300X, 16 GiB RAM and a Geforce GTX 970 or a Radeon RX 470. Blizzard warns that “there may still be performance drops” during the beta. If you are going beyond 1080p and medium details, a GTX 970 or RX 470 will hardly be enough.
The pre-download for the D4 pre-order beta is scheduled to start today at 5 p.m. The download should be around 45 GB. The game will be played from 17.3. 5 p.m. to 20.3. at 8 p.m. Next week there will be a repetition as an open beta.
