Tekken 8 PC Specs & Requirements
 

Tekken 8 is the newest entry in the legendary Tekken franchise and is set to release on January 26th 2024.

Published and developed by Bandai Namco, the game drops players into the next chapter of the longest-running videogame storyline and straight into its dynamic world of relentless hand-to-hand combat. 

This sequel features 32 redesigned, unique fighters and the all-new ‘Heat’ system for players to crush their opponents. With high-fidelity graphics, developed for the new generation of hardware, Tekken 8 brings the franchise to the forefront of next-generation gaming.

As with any modern game release, knowing the system requirements necessary to run the game at optimal settings is vital for having an enjoyable gameplay experience. In this article, we’ll explore the PC specs required to run Tekken 8, as well as provide recommendations for those looking to upgrade their current setup. 

So, read on to discover what hardware you will need to immerse yourself in this thrilling world of hand-to-hand combat.

Tekken 8 Minimum Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-6600K or AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti or AMD Radeon R9 380X
  • Storage: 100 GB available space 

To get Tekken 8 up and running at 1080p resolution, with most settings on low but hitting a respectable 60 FPS, Bandai Namco says you don't need a particularly powerful PC.

Both the CPU and GPU options are a good few generations old now so most gaming PCs made within the last 7 or so years should be able to handle getting the game up and running.

One area your system may be lacking, however, is storage space required to install the game. With a substantial 100 GB required, consider upgrading your system with an SSD for faster load times, even if it's a smaller one.

If your PC just meets these specifications, however, you will need to be content with the lowest settings. You’ll only be able to play at around 1080p at 25-30 FPS with pretty much all the settings on low, which is fine if you’re playing on a small monitor, but if you’re trying to play on a larger monitor or even a TV, it’s not going to look great.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Ignition Intel Core i3 GTX 1650 Gaming PC.

As the minimum specs listed are showing their age now, anything from the last 5 years will surpass it and so that’s the case with this PC.

It houses much newer components in the form of the Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU and the Intel i3 12100. Both parts are some of the best entry-level options on the market and offer excellent value for money for those looking for a more budget system that will still allow for moderate gaming.

It also comes stocked with double the minimum requirement for RAM at 16GB, plus a huge 1TB SSD to store the game on giving you more than enough space for a few others too.

Tekken 8 Recommended Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core i7-7700K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
  • Storage: 100 GB available space

According to Bandai Namco, systems that fall within these recommended specifications will provide a solid gameplay experience at 1080p, maintaining framerates at a smooth 60FPS, whilst also upgrading visual integrity.

These recommended specs aren’t too much of a jump from the minimum requirements either, with the suggested components being roughly 5 years old. Although the upgrade in GPU does bring new features such as DLSS technology via the Nvidia RTX graphics card.

However, they are pretty old now and can be hard to get your hands on, so will likely not be the best option for value for money and you should instead look to newer parts.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Evolution AMD Ryzen 5 RX 7600 Gaming PC.

Just as with our PC suggestion for the minimum specs, this PC features much more recent parts, upgrading the CPU to an AMD Ryzen 5 5600 and the GPU to an AMD RX 7600. The combination of these newer parts means more future-proofing alongside a top-tier 1080p (and even 1440p) experience.

You also won’t miss out on using DLSS with this PC either as Bandai Namco has stated that Tekken 8 will also support AMD’s version, known as FSR 2, on launch.

What do you need to play Tekken 8 at higher resolutions?

Bandai Namco hasn’t released official high-resolution specs, but to enjoy a game like Tekken 8 at 1440p and even 4K, all while having graphical settings on high, these are the specs we think your system will need to hit at the very minimum.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600x or Intel i5 11600k
  • GPU: AMD RX 6800 XT or Nvidia RTX 3080
  • Storage Space: 100 GB SSD
  • RAM: 16 GB

Like the other requirement lists, these components are also not of the most current generation. So, to hit these specs without spending money on out-of-date parts, consider a system like the Chilblast Evolution Intel Core i5 RTX 4070 Gaming PC.

This Chillblast PC features the Intel Core i5 13500 processor, which offers excellent gaming performance and multitasking capabilities. Paired with the Nvidia RTX 4070, you can expect smooth gameplay at both 1440p and 4K at high settings in most games.

Plus, with full support for DLSS, it can drive up frame rates in supported games even more, and it even has some impressive ray-tracing support in compatible games

It even comes with a 1TB SSD which is ample room for your game library, plus a solid 16GB of high-speed memory.

Conclusion

Tekken 8’s various system requirements provide options for all budgets. While meeting the minimum requirements will allow you to play the game smoothly, upgrading to a more powerful Chillblast PC will enhance your gaming experience, especially if you aim to play at higher resolutions and settings.
