Sony has officially revealed the required PC specs for its upcoming PlayStation Plus Premium plan, offering future plan owners a look at how powerful their computers will need to be compatible for streaming games. Luckily, the requirements aren’t strict.
While games can run with a 2.0 GHz Intel Core i3, the PlayStation team recommended a faster CPU, such as a 3.5GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10, for optimal performance. The other specs are relatively low-end as well, with the streaming program only requiring 300 MB of storage and 2 GB of RAM.
Users will also need a DualShock 4 controller to properly play these games.
