With the highly-anticipated release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 just around the corner, Activision has unveiled the system requirements and exclusive features for PC players. Here’s what you need to know to gear up for this year’s installment of the popular franchise.
PC Advantages and NVIDIA Features
Modern Warfare 3 will support NVIDIA DLSS 3, a technology that offers frame generation on top of image reconstruction. This marks the first time a Call of Duty title includes frame generation, providing an advantage to NVIDIA GPU users. It’s yet to be confirmed whether the game will receive support for the newly released DLSS 3.5 feature set, but this possibility may be reserved for future updates.
NVIDIA GPU owners will also benefit from NVIDIA Reflex, a feature aimed at reducing system latency. This is especially important for players using high-refresh-rate monitors, giving them a competitive edge. Additionally, the PC port of the game will offer ultrawide resolution support at 4K.
Minimum System Requirements
Here are the minimum system requirements to run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3:
- OS: Windows 10 64 Bit (latest update)
- CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 or AMD Ryzen 5 1400
- RAM: 8 GB
- Hi-Rez Assets Cache: Up to 32 GB
- Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 / GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon RX 470
- Video Memory: 2 GB
- Storage: SSD with 149 GB of available space (78 GB if COD HQ and Warzone are already installed)
The modest system requirements for Modern Warfare 3 are in line with the game’s release on last-gen consoles. The Call of Duty franchise has historically aimed for 60fps gameplay on lower-end consoles, making the transition to PC relatively smooth.
