Elden Ring playable on an i7 4820k?


I'm still getting my budget together for upgrades to my rather old gaming rig. I put in a 3070 for now but by end of year I was planning to do the other upgrades, probably something in the 12600k/5800X zone depending on the best value when my budget is together for that. Anyway, in the meantime, do we think that Elden Ring will be playable on a 4820K with a 3070 and 32GB of RAM? It has the same core/thread count as the minimum 3300X but is a little slower. Not currently overclocking but it's an option.

    Greetings. Probably not as it doesn't meet the minimum requirements.

    The minimum CPU listed for that game is an Intel Core i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 3 3300X. If you look at benchmarking websites, the i7-4820k benchmarks below the i5-8400 by a bit.

    Also you would be getting a lot of bottlenecking due to the CPU with a 3070. So I'd highly suggest to upgrade when you can.
