Another good way to know if your PC is up to par is to try and participate in the next Halo Infinite technical test.

The PC requirements for Halo Infinite come courtesy of Steam. Although no one was expecting Halo Infinite to run on a $500 gaming PC, the requirements are actually quite modest, especially in light of the ongoing graphics card shortage. It is also interesting that the recommended and minimum graphics cards line up pretty well with the overall hardware of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and PS4 and Xbox One, respectively.

Of course, a more powerful PC is always welcome in shooters. It's a huge advantage to be able to run Halo Infinite at higher frame rates. This is especially true at launch as Halo Infinite will only have its solo campaign and free-to-play multiplayer. The other features, such as the Forge mode and co-op campaign, will be added in future updates.

Also, while Halo Infinite will support cross-platform play at launch, PC gamers will enjoy exclusive settings as well. This includes support for ultrawide and super ultrawide displays. The game will also let PC gamers use triple-key binds, dynamic scaling, and variable framerates. It's safe to say that 343 Industries isn't joking when it described Halo Infinite as "the best Halo experience on PC to date."

With that said, if you were able to play Halo Infinite during the technical test, your PC should do more than just fine once the game launches on December 8.
