Skyrim Special Edition demands Higher System Requirements than original’s

Skyrim Special Edition

Expected for the same specs as original’s? Not this time around

Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been a tremendous success in the video-game industry since the last 5 years. Although I haven’t played it personally, I know what’s going around. The newest addition Skyrim Special Edition got its system requirements recently, and I’m pretty sure that it won’t impress you at all.

The original Skyim was out in 2011 and had pretty primitive system requirements. A 2.0 GHz processor, a 2GB ram and a 512MB GPU were enough to run the beautiful masterpiece. But if we talk about SSE (Skyrim Special Edition) comparatively, they are way to high and demanding.

Here’s what you’re going to need –


OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
CPU: Intel i5-750/AMD Phenom II X4-945
Memory: 8GB RAM
HDD: 12 GB free HDD space
GPU: Nvidia GTX 470 1GB /AMD HD 7870 2GB


OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
CPU: Intel i5-2400/AMD FX-8320
Memory: 8GB RAM
HDD: 12 GB free HDD space
GPU: Nvidia GTX 780 3GB /AMD R9 290 4GB

SSE will cost $60 or 4000 INR on release. However, if you own the original Skyrim and the Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn DLCs, or the Legendary Edition, you can grab SSE for free. Skyrim Special Edition is due for October 28 on Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The anticipation is high, and the hype is real.
