The official system requirements for the upcoming Dirt 5, the latest entry in the DiRT rally series, with a lineage dating right back to 1998's Colin McRae Rally. The quality has been consistent and high, and Codemasters know racing games, and they know how to do them well. 


You're going to need a pretty hefty CPU and GPU to run it at high settings though. The game specifically suggests a six-core CPU for it's recommended specs, along with at least a GTX 1070 TI. At a bare minimum, you're going to want at least a GTX 970 or RX 480. Oof. 

Here's the full system specs below;

  • MINIMUM:
    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: 64-Bit Windows 10 (18362)
    • Processor: AMD FX 4300 / Intel Core i3 2130
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: AMD RX 480 (DirectX12 Graphics Card) / NVIDIA GTX 970
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 60 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
    • Additional Notes: PC audio solution containing Dolby Atmos® required for Dolby Atmos playback.

  • RECOMMENDED:
    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: 64-Bit Windows 10 (18362)
    • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3600 / Intel Core i5 9600K
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM
    • Graphics: AMD Radeon 5700XT / NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 60 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
    • Additional Notes: PC audio solution containing Dolby Atmos® required for Dolby Atmos playback.

The game will also feature dynamic weather and day-night cycles, although that isn't as impressive a claim as it used to be in my book. It looks stunning, though, as you can see from the trailer above.

Interestingly, Troy Baker will be one of the voice actors in the career mode, along with Nolan North, and there'll be plenty of multiplayer, both local and online.

Dirt 5 releases on the 16th of October.
