Project Cars 3 is launching at the end of this month. The racing sim title arrives on August 27, and those gearing up to play it on PC will want to know what system requirements they will need to run it. Given how lovely Project Cars 3 looks, there will be some high specifications needed to help it run properly. Let’s get behind the wheel, start the ignition, and take a look.

Project Cars 3 minimum specifications

It will come as no surprise that Project Cars 3’s minimum specs are in the higher tier of system requirements. You won’t get by with an Intel Pentium processor or 4 GB of RAM, so ensure you have anything similar to the above if you want to run it at its base level.
