A couple of months ago, NVIDIA hinted that RTX can work wonders even with hits from the past that ray tracing can transform beyond recognition. Quake II became the “experimental rat” : the fighter was upgraded with the help of raytracing. Very soon, the updated version of the shooter will be available to all comers, but it turned out that not everyone will be able to try it out: the minimum system requirements indicate, as much as RTX 2060.
Quake II RTX received a separate page on Steam, thanks to which users were able to find out the necessary hardware specifications. It turned out very ambiguous. With minimum requirements for a processor that is below average and quite affordable in 2019, 8 GB of RAM, the game requires at least NVIDIA RTX 2060 – and better and more powerful.
Quake II RTX minimum system requirements:
- OS: Windows 7 (64-bit);
- processor: Intel i3-3220 or equivalent from AMD;
- RAM: 8 GB;
- graphics card: NVIDIA RTX 2060 and above;
- graphics API: Vulkan.
Good news is waiting for those whose computers have passed the test: Quake II RTX will be released on June 6 and will be distributed absolutely free – the developers have prepared a nice bonus for owners of expensive video cards.
