How to verify your desktop PC or laptop meets Lost Ark system requirements?

With these few easy steps, you can check whether your gaming PC or laptop can run Lost Ark. The three key requirements are the CPU, GPU, and system memory. Here’s how to check out what you have in your Windows 10 or 11 machine.

  1. Open System Information

    Click Start, type in System Information and press Enter.

  2. Check CPU and RAM

    System Summary - CPU

    On the top left corner, click on System Summary to view and review your operating system, type of processor (CPU), and amount of memory. Make sure these meet or exceed the minimum requirements.

    The CPU requirements are not that much defined, as they are presented with only Intel Core i3 / AMD Ryzen 3 and Intel Core i5 / AMD Ryzen 5. Lost Ark is not that CPU-bound, so any gaming PC from the last ten years is capable of running the game. The system information shows an Intel Core i7-9750H. Meaning it meets (and exceeds) the minimum system requirements. For more info about CPU performances and the benchmarks, check out this website so you can compare your CPU with the required one.

    The same goes for the amount of system memory available. In this example, the system info shows 15.8 GB, which is above the minimum of 8GB.

  3. Open Display under System Information

    Next to Components, click the + sign to expand the list and click on Display to check your graphics card (GPU).

  4. Check GPU

    System Summary - Display

    Check your video card(s) whether it meets the minimum requirements.

    To play Lost Ark without any issues it requires at least an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 for 1080p gameplay so an Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Max-Q meets and exceeds the minimum system requirements. Note that if your laptop or a PC has only one GPU, only one would be listed.

    For more info about GPU performances and the benchmarks, check out this website so you can compare your graphics card with the required one.


If you laptop or PC meets and exceeds at least the minimum system requirements, you are good to go to run Lost Ark.

Have fun.
Cheers. 🙂
