The main problem with AC3 was that it didn't take advantage of multi-core processors. Hopefully the fact they recommend quad-core processors for AC4 means that they will actually use them.

Still, I think some people overexaggerate the problems with AC3. I turned down one setting (environment detail, I believe) and got pretty much a steady 60fps on my hd 7950. But I used RadeonPro to force triple buffering and cap the framerate at my refresh rate. That seams to get rid of a lot of stutters in many games.

In any case, AC4 doesn't seem too demanding, which is impressive because the game looks beautiful. I had some hands on time with the PS4 version at PAX and it's gorgeous. The PC version will look even better.

Nvidia said the game was running on GTX 770s at gamescom and it looked fantastic.

"We have GTX 770s in the majority of the systems. It's beta code and it's not had the final optimization path yet, so I expect other cards will run it just as well when it is officially released."

Here's some videos of it running on PC at PAX:

Everyone has had 64bit OS for years now. This is a no brainier.

GOOD! If you're a gamer on a 32 bit OS you're not a gamer.

gamernova1816d ago

Seriously, even smartphones are rolling out 64 bit. I'm happy to see this push. People need to upgrade.

If you have a 32 bit OS in 2013, it's time for an upgrade.
