PC Gamer journalists conducted extensive research on the performance of the highly anticipated RPG Dragon's Dogma 2 on various PCs. For testing purposes, 5 computers of different power levels were utilized, equipped with AMD Radeon RX, Intel Arc, and GeForce RTX graphics cards. The entire test took 16 hours.

Configurations of the tested computers:

  • Intel Core i7 9700K, 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM
  • Intel Core i7 14700KF, 32GB DDR5-6400 RAM
  • AMD Ryzen 9 7900, 32GB DDR5-6400 RAM
  • AMD Ryzen 7 8700G, 32GB DDR5-6400 RAM
  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM

For the most objective evaluation, the highest graphics settings were used, excluding ray tracing. The reviewer compared the frame rate performance in urban locations and open-world environments. The test results revealed that the game's performance directly depends on the computational power of the processor.

In urban zones, the frame rates will be even lower, even at 1080p resolution and minimum quality settings.

The reviewer claims that the recommended system requirements provided by Capcom should be considered as an absolute minimum. Therefore, gamers are advised to have a processor of the level of an Intel Core 12th generation, AMD Ryzen 5000, or more powerful. At the same time, the game does not impose special requirements on RAM.
