F1 2021 PC system requirements revealed, minimum, recommended, and ray tracing specs announced
By Chad Norton on April 19th, 2021 at 02:44pm - original article from game-debate

EA recently revealed their first F1 game after their official acquisition of Codemasters last year, and is launching on July 16th. Codemasters have now announced the official PC system requirements for F1 2021, and they're pretty beefy, along with the reveal that the new installment will include ray traced graphics.

This year's ¬¬g_id:38066[F1 2021]¬¬ will include ray tracing support, as confirmed by the PC system requirements outlined below. It appears that the requirements have increased for the minimum specs this year, but largely remain the same for the recommended specs.

So if you were able to play ¬¬g_id:37263[F1 2020]¬¬ last year at the highest settings, you'll be able to play F1 2021 perfectly fine. However, if you were on the cusp of the minimum required hardware, then you may need to upgrade in order to get smoother performance.

With that out of the way, let's have a look at the official F1 2021 PC system requirements...
