System Requirements for Metro: Exodus Outed; Denuvo Protection Included

The system requirements for 4A Games' Metro: Exodus, the studios' first open-world effort that comes with baked-in NVIDIA RTX support, have been outed. The minimum system requirements for 1080p gaming at 30 FPS uses the Low IQ settings, and should be achieved by an i5-4440 CPU, paired with a 2 GB VRAM graphics card (GeForce GTX 1050 or Radeon HD 7870) and 8 GB of RAM.

For the Extreme IQ settings, at 4K 60 FPS, though, you'll require, obviously, a beast of a system. An Intel Core i9-9900K is the CPU of choice here, paired with 16 GB of RAM and the top of the line NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti. These requirements pressupose the absence of any RTX features, however, so prepare to see your maximum resolution with those features on coming down quickly as you scale the ray tracing capabilities. RTX-specific performance profiles will be released by 4A Games in the coming days.
Another piece of information regarding Metro: Exodus that has seen the light of day in recent times, however, is the games' usage of Denuvo. This has been a usual occurrence with publisher's Deep Silver's gaming offerings, though, so it really isn't that unexpected. But if you're one of those for whom the absence of DRM is important, you should take note. Source: 4A Games

RTX Off @4K 60 FPS need GTX 2080Ti.......

RTX On @4k might be 10 FPS:banghead:

PS: Don't care about Denuvo, but good to know.
the Denuvo will probably take a bigger hit in performance than the RTX tech XD

this game is going to get cracked eventually... Also, I doubt circumventing/bypassing it would make any difference. I rather stick to High settings than maxed out considering this title may tank the fps with RT enabled. Again, gonna take some salt until 4A starts releasing optimization patch to improve overall performance with DXR running.

So do i finnally have a game that will bring my old cpu down and give me a reason to upgrade. Far cry 5 and bf v failed to do rhat last year. So is metro exodus the game that will force me to upgrade. Maybe, i am gonna get the game. I played metro 2033 and last light back then and enjoyed it.

Why did they list a 1080 ti instead of a 1080 for 1440p 60 fps when the 2070 and Vega 64 are right at 1080 level performance? I guess we'll have to wait for the benchmarks, but I have a hard time believing the 1440p results are going to be more than 10% different between the 2070, V64, and 1080, and the 1080 ti is going to be off with the 2080, in between that cluster and the 2080 ti.
Cards with higher memory bandwidth tend to perform better with higher resolution. This has been the reason AMD cards (particularly R9s, Furys and Vegas) have improved performance against their Nvidia's counter parts as you move up with the resolution. Turing cards have a much faster memory comparing to Pascal, and while the RTX 2070 is 8-12% faster than GTX 1080 in 1080p, the gap increases to 18-20% in 1440p and 4k, at least as per Techpowerup own numbers.

And then, there are some titles that do benefit from increase memory bandwidth, these titles do favor AMD cards for sure. And the fact that they suggest a VEGA 64 falls into the same ballpark with an RTX 2070, which otherwise is very slightly behind GTX 1080, confirms all of the above.

I always take gameplay and story over graphics any day.
Any reviews yet out there?

If all of you just had perfectly normal 32 core chips you wouldn't have to worry about things like denuvo.

I have the 4790K and will upgrade to 9900K. I would like to get a Threadripper, but because of a certain OS I have to use Intel CPUs.

You and I have something in common; We are both incurable smartalec's.
