Watch Dogs on PC with Ultra settings requires a Core i7 GeForce

first_imgIt’s a little over a month now until Watch Dogs will see a release across consoles and PC. Those picking up the console version of the game don’t have any hardware tweaking to do, but if you want to enjoy Watch Dogs as Ubisoft intended on PC, you’re going to need to run it on Ultra settings.But what constitutes Ultra settings? Jonathan Morin, creative director for Watch Dogs, has divulged the required PC spec via his Twitter account.Apparently the PC gameplay video Ubisoft released was recorded on a PC with a Core i7-3930K and a GeForce GTX Titan graphics card. However, the Ultra spec for the game that’s shipping next month includes a Core i7-4770K and a GeForce GTX 780. Those two components alone will set you back at least $800.Of course, you can run the game on much less powerful hardware, with the minimum spec being a Core 2 CPU and GeForce GTX 460 graphics card, but you won’t be seeing the graphics at anywhere near their best. The only other things you definitely need are 6GB of RAM and a 64-bit copy of Windows installed.You will also benefit from having a Nvidia rather than an AMD-branded graphics card, but only slightly. Morin confirmed the game supports the Nvidia-only TXAA (Temporal Anti-Aliasing), which creates smoother, clearer images by combining MSAA multisample anti-aliasing, post processing, and some temporal filters Nvidia created.So, who’s upgrading their rig in time for May 27? Or is this a game you think will be better experienced on one of the next-gen consoles?last_img
