Developer Bloober Team has detailed the full PC system requirements for its upcoming psychological horror title The Medium. The specifications are quite lengthy, with several different settings for players looking to achieve varying degrees of optimal performance.

There are the usuals settings--minimum, recommended, high, and ultra--as well as three options for ray tracing enabled. In order to get the extra visual enhancements provided by ray tracing, players will need either Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 Super, 2080, 3060 TI, or 3080 graphics cards. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super and 2080 are easy to get ahold of, as they're both a couple of years old now. However, the newly released 3060 TI and 3080 graphics cards are harder to come by, with supply continuing to struggle to keep up with demand.

On top of the GeForce card, players will also need an AMD processor to run the game. This piece is variable, ranging from the cheaper R9 390X to the $650 RX 6800XT card. Players will want to opt for the more expensive processor if they want to enable ray tracing in the game.
