Jonathan Morin, Creative Director of Watch_Dogs, has revealed some additional information about the PC specs requirements for Ubisoft's upcoming open-world title.
I will be playing at 4K Ultra, cannot wait.
i5 3750 GTX 670 Sli 16gb RAM Maxing games with no problem so far
Now that I think about it, 4K Ultra has a cool ring to it. Sounds like MKUltra (CIA's mind control program).
Playing this on a i7 4770k and 280x
Same her if I get for pc. Might get it for ps4. Then I can play with cousin. Don't really know too many people that play on pc otherwise I would prolly get it for it instead. I also own a xbox one. But I don't really have any one to play with on that either.
Where do you live? like what country cause i have had a fairly similar problem in the past, being from small town NZ there is not alot of people around just a handful of us then we all play different games
Actually I think I have a i7 3770. Is there much of a difference between that and 4770?
Want to see how much better the PC exclusive features are against console versions.
Despite what he says, i think i will be able to achieve 1080p, locked to 30 fps, ultra settings (maybe a few unimportant stuff at high) + 2x TXAA with my gtx 670 and i5 2500k.
That's kind of what I'm expecting. It's disappointing that it is another CPU bottlenecked game just like AC4. I have an i5 2500k like you do and apparently a processor like that will bottleneck this game. I actually have two rigs, one with a GTX 770 and another with an HD 7950, but both of them have i5 2500k processors. In any case, I think we should be able to run it at ultra settings with 2x TXAA at 1080p resolution with the framerate vsynced at 30fps. It seems 60fps will be an upgrade away. In a year or two I will upgrade my processor and graphics card to achieve 60+fps in these more demanding games.
I bought a new PC last year, with the i5 3350p, shame that it will bottleneck the game, I was hoping for it to remain fine for gaming in the years to come (most games are not cpu heavy)
Yeah you should be good, especially since your CPU is probably overclocked a decent amount. I have the i7-2600k and have it easily overclocked to 4.2ghz, so I am sure your 2500k is running similar. I always turn down/off motion blur and depth of field because I really don't like either of those features for games. They also eat up a decent chunk of your fps.
I have i5 2500 (not overclocked) as well, which scores around 6300 at Intel Passmark. And I have R9 290 (4GB), and 8 gigs of DDR3 ram. And I don't get it, do I have to have a high-end i7 to run the game at ultra? According to Morin, I do. "You can play the game at medium or high settings with a mid-end cpu" he says, just like the one I have. And yet PS4's CPU is a rough equivalent of AMD FX-8120, which scores around 6500 at passmark, which is almost the same score as mine. So, the game is not cpu-dependent on console or cpu does not matter that much, but when it comes to PC it magically does? Either the game has some advanced wind simulation or such on PC (I doubt it) or mid-end CPU's will actually do JUST FINE even though he clearly states you need a top-of-the-life CPU. And what about the monster GPU I've just bought? If the game can only run at medium settings at my rig, that'd be a pathetic score for my GPU which I believe is capable of much, much more than that. Somehow I believe there's something odd about his statement, I'm running Crysis 3 at rock solid 60 fps at the highest setting, and BF4 the same as well. From what I could understand from Morin's statement, Watch_Dogs is either the most CPU dependent game ever created (again, I doubt it) or there's just something interesting going on there. Just because I have a mid-end CPU shouldn't mean that I cannot max out the game, I've been gaming for like more than 15 years, and I have yet to play a game that does not care about what kind of GPU you have if your CPU is not the absolute highest end available in the market. It has always been about the GPU and the horsepower that it can provide. I don't know, guess I'll have to wait one more week to see.
Just in fingers crossed with CPU 8350 but at 4.5ghz and 2 7870 ghz editions.
I hope I get a stable 60 fps at 1080p, mid-high settings (FX 6300 and R9 280x).. Sleeping Dogs on my setup ran at that res and frame rate. Although AC4:BF (another Ubi game), was a bit inconsistent: 60 fps at sea or small islands, 30 fps in towns and dense jungles...
But he still hasn't answered if that means maxed at 60 fps... Of course we'll be able to play the game on Ultra with a 670...but at what fps??
“The main issue is your ram. If you climb it up to 6 you should be able to run the game at low settings.“ Meanwhile the previous gen consoles can run it just fine on 512mb ram. Ubisoft doesn't care about pc optimization.
ok i know this GPU is out dated but im using an Intel i7 870. not 870k just 870 lol and i have an invidia GTX 460 (im upgrading to a GTX 760 in June. but how do you guys think i will be able to run it with my current set up??
oh and i have 8gb of RAM
Your gpu is just barely enough, ur ram seems fine and your cpu should too. You will run itfine, just npt on ultra now. When you upgrqde your gpu you will be able to run it with better graphics. Around high.
Realistically, low to medium settings with the 460. Probably medium to high with the 760, maybe higher. Really depends on the kind of CPU bottleneck there will be.
pure bullshit, this guy is a marketing slave.
