Callisto Protocol is one game we have been meaning to get our hands on for a long while. However, given the graphics and physics, most people are wondering what exactly do you need to run it but wonder no more, because the official Callisto Protocol System Requirements have been announced by the dev team on their twitter page.
Using an AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT or Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 will give you the complete, blood-spattered experience (opens in new tab). Reduce the settings to Max, and a Radeon RX 6700 XT or RTX 2070 is deemed adequate. You’re going to need 16GB of RAM in both situations.
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X or Intel Core i9 9900K are the recommended CPU specifications for Ultra. But even if you match those requirements, the question of whether you’ll still have the stuttering problems frequently noted on Steam persists. Shaun Prescott discovered this during our evaluation, which was conducted on an RTX 3080:
“There were definitely some stutters, especially when loading new areas or when camera control is taken away or given back on either side of cutscenes and certain pre-canned animations, which The Callisto Protocol is full of.”
It’s also important to note that the Callisto Project does not support DLSS scaling technology from Nvidia. Nevertheless, AMD’s FSR still allows for upscaling in the game engine. That will function on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, but Shaun discovered that, even with FSR set to performance mode, it didn’t provide exactly the performance bump that one might anticipate. Therefore, Callisto Protocol System Requirements is nothing to laugh at.
However, you can still play the Witcher 3 with modest requirements.
