Yesterday, blog.ubi.com posted the official PC system requirements for Assassin’s Creed Unity only for the internet to explode in discussion about just how dam high they are.
Will Assassins Creed Unity on PC actually make use of the recommended i7 CPU and GTX 780 video card or is just a poor port that suffers out of the box from performance issues? We hope its the former but only time will tell.
Lets take a look the requirements as posted yesterday;
64-bit operating system
Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 940 @ 3.0 GHz
Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or better
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (2 GB VRAM)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290X (3 GB VRAM)
DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers
Hard Drive Space
50 GB available space
Windows-compatible keyboard and mouse required, optional controller
256 kbps or faster broadband connection
Supported Video Cards at Time of Release
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or better, GeForce GTX 700 series; AMD Radeon HD7970 or better, Radeon R9 200 series
With a lot of fans of the series (us included) placing high hopes on Unity on the back of the well received Black Flag, here at Evatech we are crossing our fingers and toes that those right minimum requirements are a sign of amazing visuals and mechanics that demand that compute power, making full use of the $1,500 rig it requires to play it.
