Space Engineers Laptop Requirements

The system requirements are quite high, and a gaming laptop with a modern graphics processing unit is needed for successfully running Space Engineers. GeForce RTX 2080 or better mobile GPU is required.

16gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a laptop. 8gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 25gb of disk space is needed, which has to be noted if you install many games.
