[Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds / PUBG] Required Specifications to Play the Game

This page contains a guide on the minimum and recommended specifications for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) for PC. In this page, we will summarize the PC specifications necessary to play the game. The recommended specifications on the official website are pretty bad, so if you want to play in a comfortable environment, it’s better to have a PC with slightly better performance. 

About PC Specifications

Presently, when you try to play PUBG comfortably, you’ll need considerably higher PC specifications.

As the game is being optimized, it is expected that gaming rigs and laptops that meet the middle specifications will be able to play the game comfortably. To maximize PUBG, however, it’s best to get a high-spec PC.

Officially Recommended PC Specifications

The following is the official recommended specifications, but it seems that you can’t play the game properly with these. 

This seems to be the Minimum Required Specs for playing after being optimized for the future official release.

Windows 8.1 64bit
Windows 10 64 bit

Samurai Gamer’s Official Recommended Specifications

Here we will introduce the recommended specifications for playing PUBG comfortably.

CPU Intel Core i 5 – 6400 or more
memory 8 GB or more
graphic GeForce GTX 1060 3 GB or more

CPU

If you have a budget, we recommend you buy the Intel Core i7 processor.

Memory

8GB of random-access memory is sufficient, but it’s best t0 have an extra 16 GB. 

Graphic Board

If you play PC games other than PUBG, GTX 1060 is recommended. With this GPU, you can also play most of the latest PC games.

Author’s PC Specifications (Desktop)

Here I will introduce the specifications of the desktop PC that I’m using.

CPU Intel Core i7-4790
memory 16 GB
graphic GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB

I am playing the game with lowered graphics (as is written here), but the frame rate is maintained above 60 FPS. I can play it without any problem in operation.

Author’s PC Specifications (Gaming Laptop)

(07/19) It seems that there will be many movements, so I bought a new notebook PC! Here I will introduce the specifications of the notebook PC that I’m using.

CPU Intel Core i7 7700 HQ
Memory 16 GB
Graphic GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

Although I am also using 256 GB SSD because I’m an  amateur, I didn’t see any noticeable difference with HDD.

I wonder if it will start up quickly. I need to check.

When I played PUBG again, I think that since it is a notebook, it will be too hot to use the built-in keyboard. Therefore, I thought it was better to prepare a separate keyboard. With this spec, I can play the frame rate, etc, without any problem at all.

It’s a strength that you can play almost anywhere with a laptop. However, if you are not planning to carry a computer around, I recommend a desktop PC.
