Rust Laptop Requirements

The system requirements are quite high, and a gaming laptop with a modern graphics processing unit is required for successfully playing Rust. GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or better mobile GPU is needed.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a laptop. 10gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Note that at least 20gb of storage space is necessary, which has to be noted if you install many games.
