While GPU prices have gone down in recent months, upgrading their PC is still a bridge too far for many folks. Fortunately, Harry Potter fans still rocking old hardware just got some good news — the minimum specs required to run Hogwarts Legacy have been announced, and they look relatively reasonable, even for people with veritable toasters. Apparently, a GPU and CPU from 2015 should be able to squeeze 30FPS out of the game (on Low Quality settings), so even if you’ve got a PC like one of the Hogwarts school brooms, you should be OK.

Here are the Hogwarts Legacy Minimum/Low & Recommended/High hardware requirements:

  • Minimum/Low Specs
    • OS – 64-bit Windows 10
    • CPU – Intel Core i5-6600 (3.3GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 (3.2 GHz)
    • RAM – 16 GB
    • GPU – NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 4GB or AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB
    • DirectX – DX 12
    • Storage – 85 GB HDD (SSD Preferred, HDD Supported)
    • Notes – 720p/30fps, Low Quality Settings
  • Recommended/High Specs
    • OS – 64-bit Windows 10
    • CPU – Intel Core i7-8700 (3.2GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (3.6 GHz)
    • RAM – 16 GB
    • GPU – NVIDIA GeForce 1080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or INTEL Arc A770
    • DirectX – DX 12
    • Storage – 85 GB SSD
    • Notes – 1080p/60fps, High Quality Settings

To run the game at 1440p or higher, you’ll need a fairly beefy machine. Here are the Hogwarts Legacy System Requirements to run the game at Ultra or Ultra 4K:

    • Ultra Specs
      • OS – 64-bit Windows 10
      • CPU – Intel Core i7-10700K (3.80GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (3.80 GHz)
      • RAM – 32 GB
      • GPU – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
      • DirectX – DX 12
      • Storage – 85 GB SSD
      • Notes – 1440p/60fps, Ultra Quality Settings
    • Ultra 4k Specs
      • OS – 64-bit Windows 10
      • CPU – Intel Core i7-10700K (3.80GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (3.80 GHz)
      • RAM – 32 GB
      • GPU – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT
      • DirectX – DX 12
      • Storage – 85 GB SSD
      • Notes – 2460p/60fps, Ultra Quality Settings

For fans who don’t quite have the hardware to run the game even on low settings, you’ll have to hope you have a Professor McGonagall in your life preparing to gift you the PC equivalent of a Firebolt.

Hogwarts Legacy releases February 10th, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game will release later in the year for last gen consoles and switch — April 4th for PS4 and Xbox One, and July 25th for Nintendo Switch.
