PUBG System Requirements 2020

Can I run PUBG?

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is no doubt one of the most popular online multiplayer battle royale games to date. The minimum requirements to run this game is not as demanding as you expect. PUBG will run at any Windows 7 – 64 bit OS and up. With the latest Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB graphics, you would average around 40 to 50 fps, dropping in 30 fps during intense gameplay. Not so bad if you ask me.

In the light of any chicken dinner day, you will average 60 to 80 fps at 1080p graphics gameplay by upgrading your graphics card with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB. Any starter gaming unit will have these recommended requirements in hand: a decent Intel Core i5-6600k processor or its equivalent, 16GB RAM or higher, and ensure that you have enough available space in your drive.

The main objective in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is to be the last man standing within a group of up to 100 players max, fighting in battle royale-style. This is a survival game in which you may use as many means as possible to stay alive. The players have various options to enter the match, solo, duo, or with a small team of up to four people. Of course, the last person or team to withstand others win.
