    If you're unsure how your CPU/GPU compares to the ones listed above you could try using the sites below:

    For those of you who have the game feel free to share information about your hardware specs and settings (resolution, fps, in-game graphic settings, whether you use triple screens or VR, etc), that could be very helpful to other people.

    I only have a Gforce GTX 660 and a Intel CPU i7 930 2.80 Ghz (since December 2010)... I can run PCars2 (with all graphic in LOW) or not? (for can make the Preorder or StandBy ) =( Because PCars1 is running very fine for me at 60 fps stables and graphics in Medium-High (Not ultra). I have Windows 10 and 12 Gb RAM.

    It's still a little early to know exact specs, but I will say that if you can play PC1 decently, you'll be able to play PC2.


    SMS is targeting for the performance to be similar to PC1. Obviously, with all the new stuff it will be a little more taxing, but they've also make a lot of improvements in the engine so it will come close to balancing out.

    Thanks for the info, hopefully the Steam page will be updated soon with more precise information. My current specs are i5 @ 3.2GHz, 8GB RAM, GTX 750 ti 2GB, I can run PCars1 fine at medium settings, hopefully that will be enough to run PCars2 too. I do want to upgrade my PC in the near future, though.

    Could somebody from SMS confirm the system requirements please? 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 3700/4.0 GHz AMD FX-8350 seems a bit too demanding for minimum requirements to even run the game.
    It would be nice to get info on minimum system requirements to run the game, recommended for 1080p60fps, and recommended for 4K/VR.
    Mine runs it fine and only ever gets to about 50%

    PCARS 2 system requirements...

    What... am I... How?... Why?...



    What is that?! I JUST barely scrape by the minimums (like real life). FX8350, GTX 980 TI, 8 gigs of ram. I'm going to have to dump like 800 bucks to upgrade my system to just get to the recommended. 1200 if I want a new CPU. Plus the 120 bucks I'm going to need for the game because I co-run a league...

    This is has to be in the top 0.1% of games that are the most system intensive in Steam's library. How are the consoles expected to run this?

    For comparison:

    Arma 3:


    GTA 5:


    Witcher 3:


    Dirt 4:



    This can't be right...

    I'm going to have to sell my BRZ lmao




    (Sorry admins, I JUST noticed the PCARS 2 section. Force of habit brought me to the old section haha)
