I’m going to build a new CPU just to play zwift and nothing else, I won’t need native 4k, because the screen in question is nothing but Full HD
I will have the following combo
CORE I5 3330s
16gb of ram
NVIDIA GTX460 1gb (But with modified bios saying it’s a 960GTX 4gb)
Can I play well or should I go for a GTX750
Thanks for all reply
Neither, get a GTX 1050 Ti.
Dave will provide a more conclusive answer but…
That will work but it’s a weak setup. You’ll get a medium profile with that setup (might even be basic).
As a bare minimum you’ll need.
I3 4th gen.
Gtx 960 gpu.
Dave has some fantastic guides and there’s a Facebook group dedicated to this.
Trust me the difference between basic and medium profile compared to the ultra is night and day.
I imagined that this GTX wouldn’t do it, as I got it as a gift from a friend who didn’t know the card was fake, it will be temporary until I get a more effectively stronger card like a 1050 or similar
My main machine would run without any problem, problem that all the time migrating a corsair obsidian 1000d case won’t work hahaha
In that case I have
ryzen 9 5900x
64gb 3200mhz ram
The problem is that if it successfully convinces Zwift that it’s actually a 960 it’ll try to run Ultra profile, which will tank hard on that GPU.
Loads of fake gtx cards out there I’m afraid.
True. Usually pretty easy to tell though, by presence of a VGA port.
Exactly, I left it ready here, but I intend to migrate to a better one, if the game itself runs even on low it’s good and I ask additionally, which radeon gpu would be interesting if I choose?
On an old Mac I have a Radeon RX580 with 8GB which runs a Zwift quite well, so any of the newer and more powerful ones (there are many) should do. The Mac has a 6 core Xeon at 3.46ghz and 32GB ram and 2TB SSD.
thanks for reporting my friend, this is of great help, so I don’t waste a kidney, because I won’t be using this equipment all the time
And video cards are still plenty of $$$.
exactly, when I built my current machine with an rtx 3070 I bought it right in the mining phase and then… I paid almost twice as much as normal
Don’t buy an AMD card for Zwift on Windows, it runs on OpenGL for which their drivers are tripe.
