Watch Dogs confirmed to run ultra settings on a mid-range GPU

From the tweet: "90% of the dev team runs on Nvidia Geforce 670, that will run Ultra if you have the CPU to match."

The story is too old to be commented.

Sweet my HD 7970 should be fine with this then.

AKissFromDaddy1189d ago (Edited 1189d ago )

Will it run ultra on a 6970 in your opinion? (I have this and I'd get the PC version if it does) I hope it's yes.

Update: I just checked that the Nvidia 670 barely beats a 6970. Do you think 6970 loses by too much to do ultra?

Studio-YaMi1189d ago (Edited 1189d ago )

Wouldn't worry about it,if anything,you would lose a couple of frame-rates which won't hinder your gameplay(I guess).

On topic:
great news here,780Ti ready and in full effect! >:D

Glad to help bro.

AKissFromDaddy1189d ago

Thanks for hope Studio-Yami. PC confirmed.

Naughty_Cloud1189d ago

On Batman Arkham City 97 fps [670] vs 67 fps[6970] - that's 30 fps increase, Civilization 5 88.6 fps [670] vs 54.6 fps [6970]. I couldn't call that barely beating it. It's clearly a much faster card.

Magicite1189d ago

6970 goes on par with 570. 670 is two tiers above 6970.

I will test this on my 560ti and if necessary, will upgrade.

LAWSON721189d ago

The GTX 670 is quite a bit better then HD 6970. Hell the GTX 670 was the alternative to the HD 7950/7970 for a while.

Hydrolex1189d ago

I think I will easily max it out

i5 3750
GTX 670 Sli
16gb of RAM

inveni01189d ago

PC version it is…should it prove to be something that interests me once some more candid gameplay hits the web.

starchild1189d ago

This is good news. My GTX 770 shouldn't have any problem with this game then. I can't wait.

alexkoepp1189d ago

My r9 290x would crush it but I'm not gonna disgrace the card with this game. This game never looked like any graphics powerhouse to me at any point in time.

Dee_911189d ago

Thats more of a upper mid range card,but still good to know :)

specialguest1189d ago

My GTX 770 should have no problem with this game. 1440p at a decent frame rate might even be possible.

awi59511189d ago

Those are nividia games with Physx crap turned on that very few game companies even use. And since all of these games will be based on ATI hardware this gen it will run fine.

GTX670, mid range GPU based on what statistics? Or just the person who wrote the article's opinion? I actually doubt that's true even though I have a GTX 670. I would say the 570/580 is the current mid range GPU but I have nothing to back that up -- just like the person who wrote this article.

Stapleface1189d ago

Low-750ti Mid- 670 High-780ti Very High-Titan Black The 570/580 would fall between Mid and Low. The 670 certainly can't be considered a high end card anymore with there being cards that out perform it by a significant margin. Even if they mean by price that it's a mid range card they are still right.

kingduqc1189d ago

Based on the fact that high end 780/780ti is twice as fast as a 670?

A 670 is roughly equal to a 760 and a 760 is mid tier (it's slower at low res but faster at high res)

Hydrolex1189d ago

when I had a single GTX 670, I could not max out games... COD GHOSTS, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider were all suffering FPS drops... Added another GTX 670, BOOOM ! fixed everything

tee_bag2421189d ago

Yep the 670 is about mid range at stock. Nothing to be worried about since they OC like animals and are still great cards.

@ Hydrolex

Yep SLIed that are great

Born2Game831189d ago (Edited 1189d ago )

@kingduqc 670 is quite a bit faster than a 760. OC it, and it's quite a beast.

@Hydrolex I never had problems playing said games at max. But I did lower the AA, which is the most demanding feature in any game. FXAA, SMAA works just fine.

@Stapleface Speaking strictly for gaming. A 780ti and Titan Black are the same cards, only difference is the amount of RAM [which you can get a 6GB 780ti version now]. I've also seen benchmarks where the 780ti beats the Titan black. The only cards that fall into the VERY HIGH mark are the dual GPU cards, Titan Z and R9 295X.

hmm what about 660ti?

SaturdayNightBeaver1189d ago

It will do just fine , it's only bit weaker than 670.

hellzsupernova1189d ago

My mate has a gigabyte 660ti overclocked to over 1200mhz I cannot believe it on benchmarks it beats some very high end cards. My R9 290 for example lol

user56695101189d ago (Edited 1189d ago )

wait people on this site was stating that we need gtx780 and titans to max and make this game look on par to next consoles.

Thats weird, i wonder why they would say that. your tell me a gpu for around the price $200-400 can maxx out this. i could of sworn i needed a pc that cost $2000. whats going on was all the information i been reading is wrong? why would a gamer go through so much trouble to spread lies.

i wonder why

esemce1189d ago

Max this, max that is nonsense you can max most games with a low end card but it depends how many frames you want.

For me I always aim for 60fps then drop detail to get it.

My 4GB GTX670, 16 GB ram, and i7-4770k should do it.

Stapleface1189d ago

Like the other poster said, it's about the frames per second. Your probably going to need a 780ti to run the game on Ultra to be able to hold a solid 60fps without it dipping at all. Of course with out turning ANYTHING down. That is the point of having a higher end card, or SLI'd cards. It's about not having to turn stuff down just to get the performance you want. That is besides the point of building a gaming rig to a lot of people.

PeaSFor1189d ago

you forgot the psu, mobo, ram, ssd, cpu, case, mouse/keyboard.

MRMagoo1231189d ago

so you need a video card that costs nearly as much as a whole console to run this game on the good settings lmao, make PCs for a living making a pc to run this on ultra will cos a lot more than the money it costs to buy one of the new consoles.

tee_bag2421189d ago (Edited 1189d ago )

@ MRMagoo123

I don't care if a PC costs more. I'd rather that money go on hardware I own that paying for online and get WTF. I want a minimum of 1080p and 60fps.
I wish the consoles had better hardware and cost more so they could run these games without being gimped all the time. Don't you get that ?

DoctorJones1189d ago


My 670gtx cost me £150. How does that cost as much as a console? A ps4 is £350. Your logic is, as usual, way off.

ion531188d ago

Ultra is textures. Not max out. Max out would be Ultra, 4K, HBAO+, 8X MSAA, PhysX, ect

Confident at 1440p on a 780 :D

Android1188d ago

So should mine ;)....I'm not going to lie, when I saw the first e3 trailer I was ecstatic and worried at the same time. I was ecstatic at the graphics but worried my HD 7970 would've suffered lol....this is good news!
