F1 2021 PC system requirements won’t affect your PC unless ray tracing is turned on

F1 2021 was recently unveiled by EA with a launch date in mid-July. Now we have the full PC specs indicating that the game supports ray tracing lighting effects.

As always, both the minimum and recommended system requirements are listed, with additional guidance on requirements for ray tracing. This shows clearly enough that F1 2021 does indeed support ray tracing graphics, although nothing has been officially announced yet. F1 fans will no doubt remember that the 2020 version added DLSS – so it can be assumed that this will be included in the mix as well.

Here are the requirements for F1 2021 in their entirety (as found on the game’s Steam page):

Minimum requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit (version 1709)
  • CENTRAL PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3-2130 or AMD FX 4300
  • R.A.M: 8 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 / AMD R9 280
  • Driving space: 80 GB

Minimum with ray tracing requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit (version 2004)
  • CENTRAL PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3-2130 or AMD FX 4300
  • R.A.M: 8 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 or AMD RX 6700 XT
  • Driving space: 80 GB

Recommended requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit (version 1709)
  • CENTRAL PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-9600K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
  • R.A.M: 16 GIGABYTE
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or AMD RX 590
  • Driving space: 80 GB

Recommended with ray tracing requirements

  • Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit (version 2004)
  • CENTRAL PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-9600K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
  • R.A.M: 16 GIGABYTE
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or AMD RX 6800
  • Driving space: 80 GB

So there isn’t much to ask, and the specs are actually pretty much the same as the 2020 F1, with only minor changes here and there. The only big differences are the new ray tracing requirements, which are predictably a big step up and require an RTX 3070 or RX 6800 on the recommended front. Hopefully, since DLSS support will be kept as mentioned, it won’t take too much effort to keep frame rates running smoothly – but of course we won’t know until we see the game in action.

Given the speed at which you run around the track in normal gameplay, obviously F1 is a title where fluidity is more important than the smallest visual detail.
