I mean - wow. System requirements don't get more comprehensive than what Rare has provided us with for Sea of Thieves. They've even lived up to their claims that they were hoping to get Sea of Thieves running on integrated graphics chips, and are therefore bringing Sea of Thieves to as wide an audience as humanly possible. They deserve a big thumbs up for that, and they also provide a valuable insight into how the minimum requirements provided for a game often aren't the absolute minimum you'll need to run it. If you're okay with dropping the resolution below 720p, Sea of Thieves will run on a very low-end system.

There's not much to add to the hugely detailed information Rare has already provided for Sea of Thieves. Suffice to say, you should be able to pinpoint roughly where your gaming PC sits in regards to Sea of Thieve's system specs and get a fairly accurate estimate of the final performance.
