At the bare mininum, Diablo IV requires an intel Core i5-2500K or AMD FX-8350 for the CPU, 8GB RAM, and either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 280 for the GPU. And this is if you just want to run the game at Full HD at the lowest graphics setting and at a mere 30 fps. Not exactly that great, but still doable.
Of course, if you’re looking to step up your Diablo IV experience a notch, and by that, I mean running it at the same resolution but at medium settings and a higher 60 fps, Blizzard recommends that your system is running at least a Core i5-4670K or 1st Gen Ryzen 3 1300X, 16GB RAM, and either a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 470. Yes, the components listed here are still considered ancient by today’s standards but they are, nevertheless, still a couple of of generations ahead of the minimum requirements.
For those that want a higher power experience of running Diablo IV at Full HD but with your graphics setting running at the second highest available preset – sans ray-tracing – your PC is going to need to be a little beefy. At least, by 2018 and 2019 standards. To that end, you’ll require a Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 7 2700X, 16GB RAM, and either a GeForce RTX 2060 or Radeon RX 5700 XT.
Then, for those who demand nothing less than running Diablo IV at 4K resolution with the ultra graphics preset, and at 60 fps to boot, Blizzard is recommending that your GPU be, at the bare minimum, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or an RTX 40 Series GPU for DLSS 3 support, or a Radeon RX 6800 XT. The specs sheet doesn’t outright state if this is with ray-tracing enabled, but given that it mentions a DLSS 3, we can safely assume that it is. On that note, there’s still no mention if Blizzard will also be making AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.1 upscaling technology available at launch.
Diablo IV has already locked in a release date of 6 June, but in the last week, Blizzard announced that there is going to be one last beta open to the public, something it is calling a “Stress Test”, which will happen between 12 and 14 May 2023.
