Utilizing Remedy’s Northlight Engine, the game will both support DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, giving users some flexibility with the graphics. However, from the official requirement list, it appears that users will need considerably beefy hardware to play it. Even moreso if they want to max it out with NVIDIA-exclusive features.
Can My System Run Control?
Remedy requires users to have at least a GTX 1060 or RX 580 to run at the minimum. Most likely to get a consistent 30fps+ at 1080p. For those using monitors with 21:9 aspect ratio, the good news is that Control will have support for these right out of the gate.

What Do I Need to Play with Ray-Tracing On?
Those minimum and recommended GPUs listed above are of course for non-RTX settings. To actually play the game featuring NVIDIA‘s real-time ray-tracing. You will need at least an RTX 2060 at the minimum. However, you will need at least an RTX 2080 for smooth performance.
Unlike the traditional way of using reflections in games, ray-tracing reflections are based on the exact geometric detail and dynamic lighting of a scene. So we can expect to see organic interactivity and much more realistic immersion.
