Need for Speed Wheel Support & System Requirements

By Published February 20, 2016 at 11:32 am

Ghost Games and EA Games just posted the PC system requirements (minimum and recommended) for Need for Speed, including racing wheel support and specs for 1080p60 gaming. The newest entry in the Need for Speed franchise reminds us of ages-distant NFS Underground series, primarily focusing on night-time street racing and car modification.

The NFS post indicates that Ghost Games, the developers, have learned PC gamers demand more – mostly more frames, as they've unlocked the framerate for March 15th's Need for Speed.

Here's a list of requirements:

Minimum Requirements for 720p30 at low settings:

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later

  • Processor: Intel Core i3-4130 or equivalent with 4 hardware threads

  • Memory: 6GB RAM

  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB, or equivalent DX11 compatible GPU with 2GB of memory

  • Hard Drive: 30 GB free space

Recommended Requirements for 1080p60 at high settings: 

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-4690 or equivalent with 4 hardware threads

  • Memory: 8GB RAM

  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB, AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB, or equivalent DX11 compatible GPU with 4GB of memory

  • Hard Drive: 30 GB free space

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
