The recommended graphic card for the best visual experience is an AMD/NVIDIA dedicated GPU, 4GB dedicated VRAM (Radeon R9 380, Geforce GTX 960) (or better).

DirectX Version 11 should also be available on your system.

Running Tropico 6 on a graphics card that is above the recommended specifications will allow you to achieve the highest levels of visual detail and the best frame rates. Good frame rates can be beneficial when playing competitive games. A higher frame rate will reduce input lag allowing you to react more quickly to events on screen.

To easily see how your graphics card compares to these specifications use our interactive GPU checker.

CPU Requirements

Tropico 6 requires that you have a minimum of an AMD or Intel, 3 GHz (AMD A10 7850K, Intel i3-2000) processor. For the best game experience an AMD or Intel, 3.3 GHz (AMD FX 8300, Intel i5 3000) (or better) processor is recommended.

Some games require a powerful CPU in order to manage the game engine. The game engine deals with things like processing network communications for multi-player games and the AI of your enemies in strategy games. Some games are considered CPU intensive or CPU dependent. Most modern games offload work directly to the GPU and don't require a powerful CPU for demanding visuals.
