Unreal Engine

Unreal Engine

Unreal Engine is the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool. Continuously evolving to serve not only its original purpose as a state-of-the-art game engine, today it gives creators across industries the freedom and control to deliver cutting-edge content, interactive experiences, and immersive virtual worlds.

Hardware Recommendations


3D Modeling

Building meshes, extruding polygons and other 3D modeling tasks are single-threaded, meaning they only utilize one CPU core. If using this software mostly for modeling, we recommend a 4- to 6-core processor with a high clockspeed (3.5GHz and above).


Like 3D modeling, animation is also single-threaded. Therefore a processor with high clockspeed and 4 to 6 cores is also recommended.


While 3D modeling and animation only utilize one CPU core, rendering is a highly multi-threaded task and therefore a high amount of CPU cores will provide better performance.


Unreal Engine utilizes the video card solely to display the graphics on the screen.

Better GPU = higher FPS in the viewport or in a stand-alone game

3070Ti, 3080Ti, 3090 - game development, Virtual Production, and Architectural Visualization


We recommend a solid-state drive (SSD) for the operating system and software.

In addition, we recommend a 4TB or larger hard drive for storage of the pre-rendered assets or the rendered export files if storing these files locally. Hard drives work well for rendering since it is generally not read or write intensive.


Unreal Engine recommends 32GB of memory minimum, and 64GB for greater performance.

RAM-intensive tasks like building lighting.
