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

Jojo09031614d ago

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)

Truehellfire1616d ago

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.
