Just for info, I’ve tried the demo and it works incredibly well on lower specs than the minimum recommended which is:
12-core CPU at 3.4 GHz
32 GB of system RAM
GeForce GTX 1080 / AMD RX Vega 64
I’ve tried the demo Valley of the ancient on:
Intel(R) Core™ i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz
16.0 GB DDR5 4000mhz
Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6gb
and I’ve gotten around 15-20 fps in play mode, and 30 fps in developer mode which is unreal how well optimized the new engine version is.
As a comparison, the specs I just posted would freeze ocasionally at 26 million polygons rendered in a single scene, whereas the demo will make your pc render 16 billion polygons with 25-30 fps.
Do note that this demo is a stress test and a Conan Exiles dev kit, if one will be available in the future, will run much smoother.
For now, UE5 is not recommended for production, as it’s in early access. You can still use it to familiarize yourself with the new features and the UI.
