Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Absolute minimum (right now) is atleast GPU that supports SM 5.0 (with older versions of UE4 you can run even on SM4.0), the rest is just matter how fast it run, The more system memory the better UE4 eats up a lot, more cores fand aster CPU = faster shader and code compilation (in case of C++ you need more cpp files to use full cores power), GPU needs depends on what you plan to do, for ES2 mobile games you can use any GPU practically, but more intensive stuff will require better CPU, with VR is most demending as it needs more work from GPU and extra 30 frames, you need at least GPU on level of GT980, GT1060 to operate smoothly. So GPU is practicly bound to the same needs as games have, so again whatever you plan to do.

But official recommeded specs is:

https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/GettingStarted/RecommendedSpecifications

Operating System

Windows 10 64-bit

Processor

Quad-core Intel or AMD, 2.5 GHz or faster

Memory

8 GB RAM

Video Card/DirectX Version

DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 compatible graphics card

It say 8GB, but 16GB is really minimum if you think of good multitasking with editor on
