Today we look at the guts of the Razer software users’s typical gaming PC. The information we based on is compiled from Razer Cortex’s Diagnose feature. When Diagnose is engaged, Razer Cortex performs an in-depth and thorough report of all the components and settings applied to a system.
Through these anonymous reports we are able to get an idea of what components go into a Razer gamer’s PC.
What we see here are the most frequent specs of the PCs that were diagnosed through Razer Cortex. Overall they make up a mid tier gaming rig, which makes sense since Razer Cortex: Boost provides a great benefit to owners of these types of setups.
When it comes to GPU, a larger portion of Razer users go for AMD’s Radeon R9 200 Series that came out last year. Processing wise, the most common CPU, an Intel Quad Core i5 clocking in at 2.5 GHz is not top spec but still holds its own with most games.
With 4Gb of RAM being the most limiting component found here this system will struggle to run some of the most recent titles. On a hard drive disk of 500Gb you’ll be limited to a handfull of installed games before you start running out of room for more.
To put this setup into perspective, with these components you’d be able to fit the minimum requirements for a game like Grand Theft Auto V. To run games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends (the two most played games by Razer software users) you’re well taken care of with a similar setup.
For a more hardware demanding title like The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt this configuration is already below its minimum requirements falling short in the memory and CPU department.
When it comes to the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, although the RAM meets the minimum requirements, the processing power of this Intel chip, however, fails to reach that standard.
