- Street Fighter 6 is an extremely anticipated fighting game that has been slated to release on June 2, merely days away from now. The game comes 7 years after the launch of its predecessor—Street Fighter 5.
- As the game nears its release, Capcom has outed a PC benchmark tool for the game, allowing players from across the globe to put their rig’s hardware to the rest and determine how well it can run Street Fighter 6.
- Capcom has detailed the metrics of the benchmark tester in a complete blog post, while also reiterating the minimum and maximum system requirements needed to run the game.
- The benchmark tool is developed to make players have an easier time determining the game-running capability of their PC.
Having a hard time figuring out whether your desktop PC or gaming laptop has what it takes to run the upcoming Street Fighter 6 smoothly? Don’t fret. Capcom will dumb things down for you with its newly released Benchmark Tool, making it possible to download a simple software that will run and gauge on its own whether your PC’s hardware makes the cut or not.
Simply head over to the official Street Fighter 6 Benchmark website and scroll down the page until you come across the “Download Tool” button. Click it and the setup file should start downloading on your PC right away. Please be aware that the Benchmark tool is about 15 GB in size, so dive in accordingly. Moreover, the developers have clarified that your PC should meet the minimum system requirements for the utility to work properly.
A couple of other tips before you get started is that do not run the Benchmark tool using its shortcut. Take meticulous care that you’re launching the application from its original file location on your PC. This is only for the current state of affairs though, as a bug is impeding the use of a shortcut icon for running the tool at hand. Capcom is looking into it at the moment. Either sit tight or approach the aforementioned alternative.
On that note, here are the system requirements needed to run Street Fighter 6, both to a satisfactory extent and for ideal scenarios. In case you’d like to have your PC’s capability tested out for you, proceed with running the benchmark and evaluate the results yourself. The developers have outlined the “Result Findings” of each score that you get upon running the benchmark.
If your overall score falls between the range of 91-100, your PC can “play the game with ease.” On the other hand, in case the total results spans between 0-30, you might need to look into upgrading the device a fair bit since that figure range means the PC can’t run Street Fighter 6. However, you’re highly unlikely to fall within that benchmark result, until and unless you’re genuinely running a potato on your side.
Fans have taken to social platforms to commend Capcom for outing this utility ahead of the game’s release. Thanks to the benchmark, everyone can assess the hardware capacity of their rig ahead of time and keep their expectations in check for a frustration-free launch day experience if everything goes well on the developers’ end as well.
In other news, it’s already known that Street Fighter 6 is all set to feature separately downloadable game modes—a first in the franchise—so you can cut back on storage space and play the title as per your preference. Furthermore, the upcoming fighter will be heavily invested in the professional space as well, as Capcom’s president stated that the new franchise entry was “developed from the beginning with eSports in mind.”
Before you tread off, consider checking out these Street Fighter 6 best characters to make the right player decisions simply from the get-go. Moreover, it’s imperative for new players to learn what the game’s Drive system and its pertinent gauges and subsequent types are. Last but not least, here are all the different Street Fighter 6 editions and how they fare against each other.
Street Fighter 6 will release on June 2, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, while effectively skipping old-gen platforms.
