Spider-Man Remastered brings the beloved webslinger to PC, where we’d say he belongs. With higher quality rendering and improved lighting effects, the remastered version ups the image fidelity ante. But what sort of hardware will you need to get a good experience from the game? We’ve tested a collection of the best graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia, ranging from budget options up to the fastest GPUs available. We’ve also run through all the settings to find out which ones affect performance and graphics quality the most.

Spider-Man Remastered System Requirements

Let’s start with the official PC hardware recommendations from Sony. The company provides five potential configurations, spanning the gamut from 720p at minimum settings for weaker PCs and topping out at 4K and maxed out settings, including ray tracing, for those packing some serious hardware.

The minimum spec should be in reach of just about anybody. All you need is a GeForce GTX 950 “or AMD equivalent” for 720p at 30 fps. The CPU requirements are also easy enough, with a Core i3-4160 or better. Just about any dedicated graphics card made in the past eight years should suffice, so long as it’s an Nvidia GTX (not GT) or AMD RX model. There’s no mention of integrated graphics, but we’ll see about testing that soon enough.

The recommended specs aren’t too bad either, suggesting a GTX 1060 6GB or RX 580, with a 4-core CPU should get the job done and provide 1080p at 60 fps with medium settings. Here Sony actually specifies AMD hardware, though as is often the case it points toward more recent releases. Do you really need a Haswell-era or better Intel CPU? Probably not, though I didn’t try testing on anything other than my top-tier Intel Core i9-12900K.

For the very high preset, running at 4K and 60 fps, there’s a big jump in recommended GPU hardware. The RTX 3070 and RX 6800 XT are very much high-end GPUs. Dropping down to 1440p but enabling some ray tracing effects bumps the AMD GPU another level to the RX 6900 XT, and finally for the ultimate ray tracing experience, Sony recommends an RTX 3080 or RX 6950 XT — and 32GB of system memory with one of the fastest CPUs available.

In general, Sony recommends more potent AMD GPUs for the top three settings. The RX 6800 XT normally competes favorably against the RTX 3080, while the RTX 3070 is more of a match for the RX 6700 XT. However, Spider-Man seems to be an Nvidia promoted game, or at least it includes DLSS support alongside FSR 2.0, which may account for presumably better Nvidia performance.
