Genshin Impact System Requirements for PC, Android, iOS and Ps4

With 17 days to go until the arrival of Genshin Impact in our schedules as we definitely gonna play it, some people have begun to check their devices to see if they can play it. A couple of Honkai Impact 3 players in a Facebook Group which I am a part of, have started to worry as his smartphone is not capable of running the game. So this begs the question, what specifications of your devices do you need to run Genshin Impact? Let's check it out!



PC
While we know that the Genshin is particularly made for smartphones, there are those who plan to play this in Android and the game will launch with a PC port so that's not much of a problem for the players who desire to play that way. Here are the specs that you need to have on your computer to play.

Make sure to have an operating system of Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, or Windows 10 64-bit in order to play the game. Apparently, 32-bit operating systems might not work so check if your OS is 32-bit, if so, you might have some problems along the way. Having a DirectX 11 and 30 GB Hard Drive space free are the necessary things to look at. But we are only getting started.

Alongside with those requirements, the minimum requirements involve having an 8GB RAM, the processor should be an Intel Core i5 or equivalent, your graphics card should be NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 1030 and higher, meanwhile for you to achieve the recommended specifications, few upgrades need to be made. 16 GB RAM, Intel Core i7 or equivalent, and finally NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB and higher. If you have either of these in then you should not have to worry

While the recommended ones are Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Kirin 810, and above and 4GB or higher RAM. Minimum specs can be for a 8K or 10K worth of smartphone which something like my current phone uses which makes me eligible to play the game, how about that?

iOS
As Apple Products usually have standard builds for their phones, we will only list the model of both iPhone and iPad that will make it work. The benchmark to know if the game will work is that the game will support as far as iPhone 8 Plus, also take note that it will require iOS 9.0 at least in order to run the game. As for iPads, it will work up to 3rd generation and 5th generation for iPad Minis.

But for a quick check, here's a list. For the iPhone: iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone SE (2nd generation). Meanwhile for the iPad: iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad mini (5th generation), iPad Pro (2nd generation) 12.9 inches, iPad Pro (2nd generation) 10.5 inches, iPad Pro (3rd generation) 11 inches, iPad Pro (3rd generation) 12.9 inches, iPad Pro (4th generation) 11 inches, iPad Pro (4th generation) 12.9 inches.



PS4
PS4 will be supported by the game in any variant that it has. Just make sure that you have 30GB of Free Space on its hard drive. We have yet to see if it works on the PS5 but heck if PS5 supports backwards compatibility and knowing this is a digital game that can be downloaded for free. It can work well too there.


Conclusion
With various options at hand, you'll be equipped with the proper knowledge to see if you can play Genshin Impact on your device. If you can, congratulations, and see you soon there! If not and you want to play, better upgrade one of your devices to play the game. Either way, this will help us set our adventure. Hope to see you there!
