Fortnite is a game that runs on a wide variety of platforms and systems, even on some really old PCs and laptops that are toaster PCs but that might change from Season 10 onwards.
In a recent blog post, the Fortnite team let people know that the minimum specs for Fortnite would be raised a little bit as it will now only support graphics cards that can run Microsoft DirectX 11. Before this, having a DirectX 11 GPU was recommended but now it is an absolute must.
If you’re one of the people who are using an integrated GPU to play Fortnite, as long as your CPU is a somewhat newer one, it will support DirectX 11. Anything above an Ivy Bridge CPU will run the game, so all the 4000 series and above.
The Fortnite Team explained this change by saying, “This allows us to focus our development and testing efforts to further optimize the Fortnite experience for all players.”
These changes will take effect from Season 10 onwards.
