Greeting Ubisoft,

I am big fan of assassin's creed, wish you could provide the system requirement for Assassin's Creed Syndicate.
May you suggest me a graphic card to get to play this game? I don't need a super graphic card, but wish to be able to play it with high resolution;)

The truth is... nobody knows yet.... I could guess but that is all it would be and my average of guessing right is not good. ;)

If I had to guess I would think it will be at least the minimum specification of Unity.

Minimum Spec for Unity
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 940 @ 3.0 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz
RAM: 6 GB
OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64-bit operating system required)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (2 GB VRAM)
Sound Card: Yes
Free Disk Space: 50 GB

I would guess it to be similar with windows 10 added and possibly 8GB ram.

Resolution is what makes it require a better graphics card... some people were able to play Unity with graphics cards less than a gtx680 but to do that they had to lower resolution from 1080 x 1920 to 1280 x 720 and turn off settings and lower settings. It made Unity playable but not as good looking as it deserved to be seen.

I don't want to suggest you buy a pre-owned gtx 670 2gb and say that will run Syndicate because I do not know it will but I also do not want to say buy a gtx 980 ti because it might be too much for what you need.

If your system needs updating and you can afford it... treat yourself but concentrate on the graphics card as (I think) it is more important than CPU's in gaming.

After reading some points in the console section where it has been rumoured that Syndicate is going to have London bigger than Paris is in Unity (and Unity is HUGE) I think the graphics card is definitely going to have to be a good card.

Looking how huge Paris is and how detailed and how many people are wandering around.... I can see why the GTX 680 was recommended as minimum... If London IS bigger in Syndicate than Paris ..... it will be amazing but it will need a very good card to do it justice.

Thanks for the reply and you did actually guide me.
I think i shall more concentrate on the graphic card now. Will now have some survey on the graphic card suitable and i being able to afford it.:):):cool:

Btw, is not to complain or what, i wish that when syndicate out, its companion will be ready simultaneously, at least being able to sync, as you have mention above the London map is much bigger.
Thanks again for your help.

Hey brandonpy,

Here are my tips for getting a very good PC at an affordable price
1. go for i5 core... Even 'K' unlocked versions are not necessary.. get a i5-4690 or i5-4670..
2. Get a GTX 970.. excellent price value
3. Get 8GB RAM... but with good freq 2133Mhz is good.. 16gb still not required...

Again unity's hate is over stated.. rogue and unity sold more than a million copies...People indeed love the beauty of the game...No question about that..I believe.. he uses a gtx 970 as well.. with 4th gen intel.. similar to mine

Thanks for the help;) I've been looking to upgrade my poor graphics card and ive been eyeing up the GTX970 so it looks like im sold on it ;)

I agree, Unity is one gorgeous game and I feel many are too busy slating it to realise.

Thinking about upgrading my graphics card and I don't know whether to get the GTX 960 4gb or GTX 970.
Cost is my only registrant but I'll go for the 970 if its a good enough difference.
Any thoughts thanks?. ;)

Understood.

Bloody Ubisoft better hurry up with the Assassin's Creed Syndicate System Requirements information before somebody might start complaining otherwise they'll get caught out sooner or later, and they might have to spent more money on upgrading their hardware to meet the Assassin's Creed Syndicate System Requirements there are some users want to get ahead before the PC platform comes out rather than later.

People are already complained :rolleyes: this thread is proof.

They got released for Unity in early November...

On ultra maybe not... you might have to play with high shadows ultra high textures and without HBAO+... but i still recommend the Asus GTX 970 Strix 4GB OC edition like mine which is just fantastic

Jessigirl2013

Would the 960 4gb version make any difference?;)
I'd have to save for the 970 as its out of my price range. ;)

Anykeyer
08-11-2015, 07:41 AM
4GB makes a lot of difference in Unity and no way it wont in Syndicate. Still its bettter to go for 970 even in you cant afford it right now.

Well we shouldn't be at the point that the second most recent series of cards shouldn't at least run a game decent yet. I've tested Unity and it runs superbly and I can run witcher 3 at near max so I think I should be fine.

strigoi1958

What's your specs?

Sorry I've been away a while but...

Those screenshots were not even the best quality from a gtx970 I could have used DSR and maxxed a few more settings but I like it at those settings....

My current specs are
i5 3570k @4.2Ghz
GTX 970 twin frozr
8gb hyper x ram
512 SSD samsung
2 x 2tb WD HDD

but next week I am upgrading to a skylake system
i7 6700k @4.6Ghz
16Gb DDR4 corsair vengeance 3000Mhz
GTX 980 ti
Asus ROG ranger MB
512Gb M.2 pci.e
3tb WD HDD

So I can futureproof myself for a couple of years (if that's possible lol )

I did give my old 2GB gtx 670 oc away to a forum member because I don't believe in selling 2nd hand technology ... it will go wrong and it will cause arguments... I would have given the 970 away here but someone has already asked for it....

I only run games with vsync on because the image quality is more important than a few fps... Unity as you rightly pointed out is beautiful and I wanted to see it how Ubi wanted it to be seen. now I'm wanting to play Syndicate

Well, since Xbone/PS4 specs didnt change and ACS is clearly based on the same engine you can count to have at least the same performance. Unless nvidia will add another set of its useless and very demanding features to promote quad Titan X

strigoi1958
08-20-2015, 03:12 PM
Nvidia settings are just designed to showcase nvidia features. I find most games improve greatly by turning some down or off. TXAA is something that either works ok or doesn't.... Geforce experience optimised a game for me so it looked like a flipbook... beautiful but the settings completely overpowered my gtx970.

I'm looking forward to London but if it is as big as they say.... it must have some impact on spec I would imagine... but possible as playable as Unity... just don't quote me when I'm totally wrong again ;)

How did Unity run?

I think you probably will be able to run Syndicate at least on low settings.
The only thing that would need upgrading if needed would be your GPU.

Its still guessing at this stage though, You should wait until the system requirements are announced.;)

Unity's were announced in November.;) <----- So its still early in the process.:rolleyes:

While I haven't fully played I've tested a few settings and very high I get minnimum of 30 fps which is fine for me. High 50-60. I think that means I should be ok right? I'm hoping to keep my 770 for at least 1-2 more years money is tight. Think I should be ok? I mean I can run witcher 3 maxed minus hairworks at 50 fps.

strigoi1958
08-21-2015, 02:14 AM
you system is great for unity.... going on what Anykeyer said (and he usually knows everything before the rest of us ) there may be no need to step up anything in your system including the GPU... I co-op with a guy running Unity on a gtx550 ti... I'm not sure what quality he got though....

But I must point out my guesses about Unity fell far below what was the required spec... but then Unity is HUGE and that said London is reportedly 30% bigger than Paris... I don't know whether that will effect VRAM requirements I can only say I think your card will play it at some level whether that is a mix of high and ultra or a mix of medium and high... even if it is just below Syndicates requirements.

The rest of your system is excellent. but as a precaution I would put any spare money away... just in case the specs are higher... you will have some money already... you could sell the 770 and you'd possibly save the price of syndicate if it is bundled with an Nvidia card...

My current card a gtx970 runs out of VRAM playing GTA V if I try setting things too high... I have to turn 3 things completely off... but although it says it's 4gb I believe they're really 3.5GB...

I think games will possibly get more vram hungry in the future but whether DX12 will help us I don't know.

With Unity's bad awful optimisation, I wouldn't be surprised if Syndicate runs better.;)
If you can run current games on high like you say, Syndicate would probably run.

It does have 4gb but the 512MB of it is slower (but still faster than system ram)
Is this while gaming at 4K or 1080p?
Also on how many displays?
;)

strigoi1958
08-23-2015, 02:52 AM
I only game at 1080p I don't even use DSR.... I always use vsync and only 1 display..... games are demanding nowadays and FPS is far less important than a quality image... if I could afford or even like SLI and they could get rid of all it's problems I would step up to a 1440p monitor. Although my mobile has a 4k screen... 4k gaming (of any acceptable FPS) costs a ridiculous amount of money to achieve...

In GTA V there is a bar which shows your vram usage and when I start moving settings up it quickly says... you've exceeded your vram turn some settings lower... (or words to that effect.) turning everything up to max and ignoring exceeded memory warning caused huge sections of the city and streets to disappear and pop in ....

I think a lot of games are capable of exceeding current average systems.... but try not to do so... in order to keep sales high...


I found a youtube example of what it was like with my 970...

Make me think of this video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUnO0c1GEc8

For me, I think 4k displays are ridiculously expensive IMO ;).
Until consoles can game at 4k, I don't think it will become mainstream. <--- Then price will fall.

I remember a rumour about 4k versions of PS4 and XBONE. ;) <--- Could be closer than you think.:rolleyes:

strigoi1958
08-23-2015, 11:02 PM
I think it was a very bold move by Ubi to set the game at a level that required such a spec.... They knew they would lose sales from a lot of mainstream systems who hadn't upgraded for a long time... Plus it caused a huge outcry... but we gamers always make more and more demands from game devs but do not expect the requirements to go up much more than game specs 4 or 5 years ago....

I think you're probably right... the next console jump will probably be at a higher resolution and I think the console price will reflect the increased capability... At present I think console cost £300 - £400 I think they would jump to £500 upwards for the next er.... next gen from now...;)

That would start making 4k monitors cheaper ... especially with the increased demand in the TV market.... the trouble is... games development improves as well. ;)

but with dsr and AA giving the same FPS and image quality at 1080 / 1440 that can be achieved at 4k without AA... it makes 4k a very expensive way to get a similar image.

I don't think I've played any game in the last 15 years that didn't have any bugs or glitches.... and they're far more complex than games like system shock 2 or dungeon keeper (google their gameplay to see how far gaming has come)

Syndicate has a new/ old set of people making it and we will find out the story when it releases but it looks interesting to me :D I look forward to all the discussions (in spoiler protected format) when it is released.

08-27-2015, 10:17 AM
well 4k screens prices have dropped by a big margin now, you can grab a 4k screen for 400$ which is fair price, but the problem is there are no single card that can pull 4k in games with 60 FPS while maxing out everything, sure you don't need AA for 4k but you need to lower/turn off alot of things to be able to get steady 60 FPS.

Thus, GPU is getting there, with Nvidia Pascal and AMD new series -ones after FuryX which might be released next year-, there will be a single card that can pull 4k maxed out graphics settings with 60+ FPS.

now the top of the line cards gives you 1440p maxed out graphics settings on single card for most games, but still we have DX12 and Vulkan, those have huge performance gain over previous versions and this could be a game changer, early benches show very promising results, so now its the waiting game to see how things will turn to be and how many game devs are going to build their games on top of DX12 and Vulkan, if you ask me i would say all DX future games will be built on top of DX12 since XB1 is very weak and devs will get a great performance boost from it and dont forget that MS is pushing DX12 with their teeth now, so you got the idea.

Hey brandonpy,

Here are my tips for getting a very good PC at an affordable price
1. go for i5 core... Even 'K' unlocked versions are not necessary.. get a i5-4690 or i5-4670..
2. Get a GTX 970.. excellent price value
3. Get 8GB RAM... but with good freq 2133Mhz is good.. 16gb still not required...

Fast RAM is still unnecessary unless you are running a system with an integrated GPU (i.e. you're not playing Unity/Syndicate) or if you're an overclocking enthusiast who pushes the speeds of every other part of the system. At stock speeds, which I assume you're using since you're talking about non-K i5s, that fast RAM might as well be 1600MHz.


So would you say I likely should be able to play it?
Intel 17 4790
Geforce GTX 770
16 mb DDR3
240 gb (free)SSD
Win 10

2GB or 4GB 770?

You can expect to play on at least medium settings, maybe high, depending on what frame rate you're happy with. I was able to play Unity on top settings at 1080p easily on a 4GB 770, and didn't have to scale down much at 1440p - still very smooth. The 2GB version will have obvious disadvantages, but remember that AA settings and other effects eat into your video memory too, not just textures. Balance your settings sensibly and there's no reason why you shouldn't have a great time in any game released this year with your card. There's certainly no reason to expect that you'll need to play on low settings!

I use a system with a 250GB SSD for my OS and software (I use a lot of big software packages) and a second 500GB SSD for my games, large file libraries for the afore-mentioned serious software, and a large HDD for everything else. I'm pretty sure this is the reason why my PC had no trouble with Arkham Knight at 1440p - I think the biggest problem with that port was the way it was handling data streaming, and that my separation of these areas in my system helped it to sidestep the problems. I might be wrong, and it could be that I simply have a lucky configuration of GPU and CPU that the game likes, but given that I had to troubles with Unity either I don't think it's luck.

strigoi1958
08-27-2015, 12:04 PM
Dx12 should really help games set new standards. I think 1440p is probably the best current option. Even with 4k prices dropping... I think running a demanding game on 4k with AA and other settings turned off will result in a similar image to 1440p or 1080p using dsr and their highest settings. Eventually 4k monitors will be the norm and sub $200 but by then gpu's will have progressed so a single card will do. I am waiting for my new system to arrive and i looked at a 1440p monitor but 1080p and dsr is still amazing and my new pc will be able to cope at those settings without worrying over performance.

Dx12 should really help games set new standards. I think 1440p is probably the best current option. Even with 4k prices dropping... I think running a demanding game on 4k with AA and other settings turned off will result in a similar image to 1440p or 1080p using dsr and their highest settings. Eventually 4k monitors will be the norm and sub $200 but by then gpu's will have progressed so a single card will do. I am waiting for my new system to arrive and i looked at a 1440p monitor but 1080p and dsr is still amazing and my new pc will be able to cope at those settings without worrying over performance.

Yeah. 1440p was essential for me with my graphics and audio production software - certainly a big enough step-up to make it feel incredibly weird and restrictive when I have to use a 1080p display anywhere else.

For gaming, the most important thing for me is frame rate. There is no point in having a resolution setting that makes fantastic screenshots but blurs all of that texture detail as soon as you start running or panning the camera around. For a games-only machine, I would rather have a 1440p monitor capable of 100Hz-144Hz and a card that can easily deliver that with the best settings than a 60Hz 4k monitor and a card running at its limits. I love playing at 1440p and 60Hz, but even 60Hz doesn't feel like quite enough sometimes.

Fast RAM is still unnecessary unless you are running a system with an integrated GPU (i.e. you're not playing Unity/Syndicate) or if you're an overclocking enthusiast who pushes the speeds of every other part of the system. At stock speeds, which I assume you're using since you're talking about non-K i5s, that fast RAM might as well be 1600MHz.



2GB or 4GB 770?

You can expect to play on at least medium settings, maybe high, depending on what frame rate you're happy with. I was able to play Unity on top settings at 1080p easily on a 4GB 770, and didn't have to scale down much at 1440p - still very smooth. The 2GB version will have obvious disadvantages, but remember that AA settings and other effects eat into your video memory too, not just textures. Balance your settings sensibly and there's no reason why you shouldn't have a great time in any game released this year with your card. There's certainly no reason to expect that you'll need to play on low settings!

I use a system with a 250GB SSD for my OS and software (I use a lot of big software packages) and a second 500GB SSD for my games, large file libraries for the afore-mentioned serious software, and a large HDD for everything else. I'm pretty sure this is the reason why my PC had no trouble with Arkham Knight at 1440p - I think the biggest problem with that port was the way it was handling data streaming, and that my separation of these areas in my system helped it to sidestep the problems. I might be wrong, and it could be that I simply have a lucky configuration of GPU and CPU that the game likes, but given that I had to troubles with Unity either I don't think it's luck.
It's the 2 My economic situation usually has me i graphics card gen below the newest. I have to wait till the price is right. So I likely will upgrade once Nvidia releases their next series and get a 970. I'm sure I'm not the only gamer that has to do that.

Until the game specs are released we will not really know anything for sure....

770 is a good card... and very capable.
Games lately have started to get vram hungry when settings start getting very high...:(

Shadow of mordor ran very well on my gtx 670 but the ultra skins and textures required my 4gb gtx 970 even though it stated 6gb vram was recommended.... gta V run out of vram with my old gtx 970 4gb if I tried to set everything as high as possible but ran brilliantly when i played at settings I liked (which only used 1.3 gb). So I guess provided people can accept playing at settings that suit their card by turning settings down or off in order to get 30fps (or as close as possible) then that is fine.

I believe there is a feature in DX12 (tiled resources I think) that will allow the ram to store textures and be accessed quickly... possibly meaning vram will not be as important in the future (providing games use it) I really hope it does get used.

Absolutely, but I was replying to this person because someone else had told him his 770 might run the game on low settings, which is plainly not going to be the case. It makes no sense to write off the 770 like that when it's a high end card from only one series previous to the present! This is how PCs get an unfair reputation for being expensive :)

strigoi1958
08-28-2015, 12:44 PM
Yes, I should have been clearer in supporting your point... it was early morning when I rambled that post ;)

The 770 is an absolutely great card... I played Unity with guys running a gtx 550 ti even though the 680 was recommended...

My 670 ran games without problems even though some better cards had stuttering problems... (I always think this is Nvidias fault for making 1 driver that runs quad titan systems and the absolute basic card Nvidia produce.... also drivers have caused me huge amounts of grief in the past)

Even the old 970 couldn't set everything to high in gta v 4GB was not enough even though 1gb is minimum and 2 GB is recommended... but the settings I preferred only used 1.3GB.

IMHO game requirements are set at a level that should let the games play how the devs want them to be seen and played. Personally I find a lot of games look better to me by adjusting the settings while some people are overly obsessed with "games must max out" attitudes.

TXAA looked awful in Unity but some people will use it even though it is bad because they are maxing out. I couldn't really see a great difference between high and ultra myself because Unity was awesome anyway... If the 770 runs Syndicate on a mixture of settings but it runs well and looks fantastic... (and I think it will) that is all that matters...

the 770 is a great card. I honestly can not be sure but reading what has been posted in ubi statements about optimizing for different pc configurations I don't think the 770 needs to worry. :D

It's hard to read between the lines but that is what I'm hoping... I'm not sure if the 30% bigger area will have any impact on the requirements or not... that increase may well be offset with less npc's and and a little optimising.

It shouldn't have any particular effect how many square metres the city covers - all that really matters is how dense the world is within the bubble that your player carries with him/her. As long as they're not banging up the structural detail, we should be fine with whatever cards we used to run Unity. After all, Unity was built with XBO and PS4 in mind and ACS still has to run on those exact machines, so there's no particular reason why the PC requirements should shoot up this year. The only major difference is for those of us with decent NVIDIA cards, and if we elect to use the special processing open to us given the potential performance hits for some of those features.

strigoi1958
08-29-2015, 01:52 AM
Exactly.... it's all about the settings.... people should get a good game play experience by adjusting their settings to suit... the quote about recommended specs aimed at 1080p and 30fps may mean a lower card requirement than Unity 660 ti ??? or maybe it is an underestimate so when we get 40 fps we are all happy... sometimes downplaying something helps keep people happy when they get more...

My concern over the size of the city was... in previous games (not just AC ) we left one area and we sailed or rode or went via an animation/ loading screen (even entering or exiting a building) while the next area was loaded in... in Unity there were no areas that required an animation or loading screen... same with the buildings ... we could enter through many ways and all the textures were already loaded... If Syndicate is 30% bigger wouldn't it require more textures/ data to be loaded in ? (If there are as many accessible buildings)

Obviously with less NPC's it helps and having just checked out dx12 draw calls compared to dx11 that may also help..

I think there will be fewer interiors of buildings than in Unity.

IMO the lack of NPCs is just annoying.
For anyone who lives in London this is laughable.:mad:

London was in fact busier in Victorian London than what it is now.
Especially after the NPC numbers in Unity, it made it more immersive.<----- Remember that 10.000 NPC scene!.;)

Victorian Londons streets never looked quiet like they do in Syndicate.
It was manic to the point many people got ran over by traffic.

Looking how huge Paris is and how detailed and how many people are wandering around.... I can see why the GTX 680 was recommended as minimum... If London IS bigger in Syndicate than Paris ..... it will be amazing but it will need a very good card to do it justice.

What a lot of you guys are forgetting that unity was very poorly optimised.It barely reached 30 fps on consoles and needed a supercomputer to run it on ultra 1080p(and dont even think about 4k).Syndicate on the other hand seems better optimised so far(from the community gameplay videos).That makes a huge diffference.

strigoi1958
10-14-2015, 04:12 AM
Console graphics especially the latest ( ps4 and xbox 1 ) are excellent. I'd happily play unity and syndicate at that standard. And 30 fps is enough for a stealth game. Don't forget an entire console costs less than some graphics cards.

The pc market is constantly demanding better graphics if we don't get them we complain about how bad they look but when we get them we complain that we have to upgrade our 2008 pc to play a 2015 game and if we can't run it on an old pc we scream optimisation even if we don't know what it means. I played co op with guys playing at 15 to 20 fps.... They knew the game was made for a more up to date pc but were happy they could play at lower resolution and fps. The pc market is tiny so i would understand if game companies didn't bother with us...so even if it was lower graphics and 30 fps.. I'd rather have that then nothing at all.

I wouldn't worry about 4k 95% of pc systems would struggle to play any AAA game on 4k with over 30 fps including my overclocked skylake system with ddr 4 and a gtx 980ti. 4k gaming is for pc enthusiasts not necessarily gaming enthusiasts. 1080p is definitely more than good enough to play games. :)

Hi Itoewa The official specs should be out within the next 2 weeks. So we can only guess.... You have a really nice system there and your GPU is great 3GB and equal to a gtx 960 which is a very recent card. It also played Unity very well... as one member here has suggested that Syndicate uses the same engine as Unity it will be similar specs... if that is the case, your system is more than good enough. :)

agreed, IMO there is no single card can pull 4k @ 60 FPS without compromises by toning graphics settings, today's high end cards are perfect for 1440p gaming, 980 Ti/Fury cards can easily sustain 60 FPS @ 1440p while all graphics options are maxed out. going multi-GPU would sustain 60 FPS @ 4k but again you will endup with muli-GPUs problems and missing profiles and the fact that performance gain will not be 1:1 ratio when going more than 2-way, i believe we are 2 years away from a single card king to pull 4k @ steady 60+ FPS while maxing out all graphics settings.

And for this setup, if Syndicate requirements are similar to Unity, you even wont be able pull 30 FPS @ 1080p on your laptop, for your desktop, its possible for 1440p and 60 FPS but not on max settings and dont forget if Nvidia put has some options like PCSS, HBAO+,.... those are very demanding and will even bring down 980 Ti to its knees.

Hello everyone! As a personal thought Unity was not that impressive in the graphical aspect, it was detalied really good, but at least for me wasnt good enough to require a GTX 680 as minium, so far looks like Syndicate won't have as many NPC's as Unity so we should expect a performance boost in Syndicate, (this last month is only for bug testing and performance improvement?), probably a GTX750Ti will make it good for 1080p LOW 30 FPS, besides what's the point in not optimizing your game ? Yeah it's an AAA but that doesnt mean you will only focus in ppl with 980's or 390x

Well that depends... if you zoom in on this screenshot you can see the deterioration on the armour, the embossed leather on the hood and the stitching, the chain mail even the suede leather on Arno's hood is amazing. Syndicate is 30% bigger than Unity but as you rightly say it has less NPC's ... I expect it to be a similar performance to Unity and don't forget the gtx750ti is a maxwell card so it's the latest architecture. I know Hitman absolution is a real card killer and the gtx 750 gets around 35 fps in that game. :D I expect Syndicate to be similar but we don't know just yet.

in Unity i can't apply any form of anti aliasing, why?

well .. FXAA to me is trash .. it blurs the image.. and if you apply 2x MSAA the frame rate dips to mid 50 and even high 40s (this is on Both a GTX970 & a 980) it's too demanding so to me i choose the lesser of two evils .. either a jagged image with no AA .. or a blurry image with FXAA .. so i choose no AA..

and i hope Syndicate will atleast be a better port and achieve acceptable frame rate with AA applied..

2. Get a GTX 970.. excellent price value
3. Get 8GB RAM... but with good freq 2133Mhz is good.. 16gb still not required...

the 750 ti should run Unity on high.. the difference between low and high in Unity doesn't affect FPS much at all.... people with cards worse than that played on high. It will be affected by Ultra and the nvidia settings affect the FPS a lot but a little testing will get a good result.

Unity gets 40 to 50 fps on high https://youtu.be/hGKqL8KsR6g according to the reply in the posts...unless your cpu or ram is lower than this system. We will find out Syndicates specs soon and it also depends on drivers as well... it usually takes 4 weeks for nvidia to produce a good driver.... I know they release "game ready" drivers but all games get an update almost immediately and the driver needs to adapt.

Yeah I can run Unity with 40-30 fps most of the time on 900p resolution. But in some places like inside Notre Dame it dips to 27. What I don't understand is the awful menu lag I'm having. Fps during gameplay is good but in the character customization menu it can go as low as 16 fps. It's like the menu requires more graphical power than the actual game does. If I play on 1080p, I get only 30-20 fps, even when everything set to low so I think I'll stay in 900p, even though I don't like to play in windowed mode :P

I was very worried the first time I built a PC but in all honesty it was far simpler than I thought, I watched a few youtube videos and also what helped the first time was buying a bundle with the motherboard, cpu, cpu cooler and Ram already assembled. I had bought a case with a PSU in it and all I had to do was buy a graphics card and HDD and start. The side came off the case with 2 screws, the motherboard went in with 4 screws, the GPU just pushed in with a click and a locking screw, the HDD was a screwless lock in place... done :D the wires are almost self explanatory...

I was amazed when it started and I installed windows :D but I shouldn't have been... it really is easier than I thought.

This is a 30 minute video but as I bought a case with a PSU and a motherboard bundle I only needed the last 15 minutes. it really is as simple as screwing in the motherboard and popping the GPU in and attaching the cables... it's a little bit worrying at first but after you start it is nothing.

I'm not familiar with AMD, but I'm guessing that's a high end GPU? If so, I think you should be able to run it.

You can run it yes, but not maxed and likely only at ~45fps depending on settings. Depends which R9 200 series card you have, cause they differ a lot! If you have an R9 295x or a R9 290x then you will likely run it with no problems (maybe have to lower a few settings). If you have an R9 270 then I wouldn't get your hopes up to being able to play it at anything higher than medium/low settings (assuming you dont want to drop below 30fps). AMD cards wont do the best in AC:S, as Ubi have a partnership with Nvidia. Also how you can't have 8.2 GB of RAM, will assume you meant 8 GB which should be plenty.

Yikes,

I've been avoiding the forums lately in case of spoilers.;)

But UBIs leaving it a bit late, aren't they?

Its released in less than a month.. and still nothing?

I'm holding off upgrading until there released, Any idea when they are going to be released?
Unity's were released a lot earlier weren't they?

Anyway...

I'm thinking about getting a gtx 970 any one have any experience with them?, I know its a popular card.:rolleyes:
Would it run Unity on Ultra?

If so then I'm guessing it would do Syndicate, possible even better if the optimisation is good.
Then again anything is better than Unity optimisation.:rolleyes:

I was very worried the first time I built a PC but in all honesty it was far simpler than I thought, I watched a few youtube videos and also what helped the first time was buying a bundle with the motherboard, cpu, cpu cooler and Ram already assembled. I had bought a case with a PSU in it and all I had to do was buy a graphics card and HDD and start. The side came off the case with 2 screws, the motherboard went in with 4 screws, the GPU just pushed in with a click and a locking screw, the HDD was a screwless lock in place... done :D the wires are almost self explanatory...

I was amazed when it started and I installed windows :D but I shouldn't have been... it really is easier than I thought.

This is a 30 minute video but as I bought a case with a PSU and a motherboard bundle I only needed the last 15 minutes. it really is as simple as screwing in the motherboard and popping the GPU in and attaching the cables... it's a little bit worrying at first but after you start it is nothing.

if theyve actualy bothered to optimise then the specs should be lower than unity as its been said the graphics on ps4 are downgraded from unity wich im glad to hear as it mean theyre at least trying to get playable frame rates, the xbone has a pretty ****ty specs so it should in reality be posible to get 30 fps with a hd 7850 or 7970 at lower resoltuiion but im not hoping on it, i got pretty much exact same performence as consoles on a hd 6970 2gb but was obviously unplayable because of the ****ty drops everhwhere

not holding my breath ill be able to play even no i get same performence as consoles in pretty much every next gen game including witcher 3 but i obviously lower settinga and resoltion to the same as consoles, analysis vids usualy tell you the console pc graphic setting equivelent

Dont, its a card with gimped memory, you are getting 3.5GB instead of 4GB, i have it and it runs all games 45+ FPS @ 2560x1440 resolution, but most of the time memory is chocking because of the 3.5GB since i'm playing @ 1440p which requires more VRAM than 1080p. so now you might be wondering on why i'm not recommending it although it runs all games just fine and give 60+ FPS @ 1080p (if thats your target resolution)?

the answer is simple, 4GB is the bare minimum nowadays for games and it will keep going up, there are some games require 5+ GB of vram with high resolution textures and post effects in graphics settings, so you need a card to serve you at least 3 years from now and 970 will not do that. IMO either get GTX 980 (if you really want Nvidia since its full 4GB) or AMD 390, if its me i will get AMD R9 390 with 8GB Vram, the card is better than GTX 970 with plenty of memory, AMD R9 390 is between GTX 970 and 980 in terms of performance, and it costs 20-30$ more than 970.

I think that you have found the optimum settings there.... PCSS doesn't look right to me and TXAA seems to make Unity look worse. FXAA is great and doesn't hit performance hard. Taking a little time to try settings out can be a little frustrating to some people but if people do as you have done, a little tweaking can achieve a brilliant visual quality and excellent performance.

We should post settings when Syndicate is launched. I rarely run everything maxed out, I like to set it at what looks best for me... not as a showpiece for Nvidia ;)

as for the 970... it is still an awesome card... vram demand is growing in AAA games (at an almost alarming rate) but it still is capable of exceedingly great quality. Looking through my library of Unity pictures I can admire just how good it is. As pointed out the new GPU architecture is coming next year and the prices of the 980 and the 980 ti will take a big hit.... if that is too long a wait and you would rather not have the AMD R9 390 (which is a good card) or pay the 980 price right now... then the 970 is at a very good price at the moment, (around 60% of what I paid) and I've seen pre-owned ones on ebay for less than the price of a new 960. :D (as a side note, I am not certain a 960 can make use of 4gb of vram effectively so anyone considering it as a temporary card should buy the 2gb)

As demands get higher it may require setting changes (depending what DX12 gives us) but as RVSage has pointed out... 52 to 60 fps in a game as huge as Unity is brilliant. Plus just lately I've discovered there are lots of indie games that are enormous fun and a lot of my money is going on them...

Yes it's a difficult time to decide on GPU's I think you're right to wait until the specs are announced Jessi

Nice... I'm hoping DX12 is going to be a big help in the coming years. I usually go 18 months before a new GPU but I'll see what's happening as soon as they release. :D if they're good enough I might save the cost of a 1440 and go straight to 4k... As long as game demands don't jump as well. I watched a video showing the evolution of game graphics and I noticed 2 things....

1. I have played almost all the games in the video and...
2. Around the release of Assassin's Creed.... graphics started to really take off quickly. I played from the 1972 onwards :D but the first jumps were late 90's then 2000 then yearly since then... and checking out The Division at the end .... you can see why I pre-ordered it.... a year is a long time in graphics at the moment :D

games years ago had to have good gameplay POP and similar platform games were very engaging... Doom, Unreal, Half Life moved us forward... Crysis crushed my PC then... I just bought it again because I wanted to see how much we've moved on... Unity on the 970 was really breathtaking. If Syndicate is the same specs I'll be happy ... if it's a little less then even more people can buy and play it. :D
But it might be higher.... the difference between video clips from console and PC are noticeable.

I think I will wait till I upgrade I think its easy to get wrapped up in all the numbers and benchmarks.
I've been playing Unity on an ancient GPU on low with awful FPS (as low as 9) so anything above 30FPS would be a massive improvement.

Does anyone know if it will be worth waiting till black Friday/ cyber Monday?

we don't know yet because the specs will be released in the next week or 2. If you played Unity with that system... you probably should be able to play syndicate. but your gu the gtx 660 is a little below the required spec for Unity. but the rest of your pc looks very good

11-02-2015, 05:09 PM
You're CPU should be fine, seeing it ran Unity great (I got the same one exactly).. however.. the GTX 660 is sadly even below recommended for Black Flag, and I dont think that one will be able to run it well / high graphics. (guessing) Theres no confirm yet however..

But if your GPU wont do it, you should be able to upgrade your GPU if your motherboard supports it (ask your PC store).

[joke alert] This seems to be the plan: they will release the game and people are going to buy it and start opening threads, exchanging experiences on how the game runs on different hardware and different settings; once sufficient amount of time has passed, they will kindly ask the unpaid staff (i.e. the mods) to gather data and see which hardware runs the game at say 720p, 30fps, medium settings and declare that the minimum, and the hardware that can do 1080p, 30fps, high settings will be declared recommended (as has been announced). After that, they will release the information back to us and I expect that we will have it by Christmas, or, at the latest, early next year. :rolleyes:

Lignjoslav
11-03-2015, 08:41 PM
From personal experience, Unity does scale with graphics options, but you need a fast CPU first. I started Unity with a Phenom II X4 @ 3.2GHz and the only graphics settings that affected my performance were the resolution and texture quality. Other than that, even HBAO+ and soft shadows seemed to carry no performance penalty, but that only meant that, with or without them, the performance was always equally cra**y. Once I switched to a faster CPU (and more RAM), not only did my performance jump, but I could also get noticeably higher framerate by turning the most expensive options off.

I believe they are the settings for Unity and they're assuming it's going to be the same. I have a 980 ti but next year the new architecture will be released with faster speeds... so the 980, 980 ti will drop in price, probably by 30 to 40% (that happened to the 970 and previous cards before.... ) so it might be worth waiting until then.

I don't know much about xeon but it seems a capable cpu for now @3.3ghz and upto 4 Ghz
your ram is good... few things make use of any ram faster than ddr3 1600 and you have 16Gb which is more than plenty for gaming.
finally you have a 770 it outperforms the 680 at 1080 and 1440 it's like a beefed up 680 and is good for another year but its drawback is it has 2gb of vram and that limits some games.... if you don't mind waiting a year you might end up with a z170 motherboard bundle with cpu, and ram AND a gtx 980 ti for the same price as a 980 ti now.

the system worked for unity at a setting between high and ultra (some lags when to much ppl an the street or when examinign an eagle point...u know what i mean, i dont know the english spelling for that). But the cooling fans are at fullspeed then. At GTA V i can set up to a usage of 3.2 GB and the game still runs smooth. Wathc Dogs is brutal in taking ressources.

i dont want to wait for a year but then a 970 4b OC would be the best choice at the moment for me i think.

Source(It's Very Ligit): http://bazitak.ir/9061/%D8%B3%DB%8C%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%85-%D9%85%D9%88%D8%B1%D8%AF-%D9%86%DB%8C%D8%A7%D8%B2-assassins-creed-syndicate-%D8%A7%D8%B9%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%85-%D8%B4%D8%AF.html

To put it simply it is not from Ubisoft and no Syndicate is not lower graphics than Unity, it is the same engine, More optimized and this can't be the case, because that hardware is less powerful than consoles and consoles are the baseline. Whatever I see in the forums , is mostly the official, so stop reposting the same thing. Because I certainly won't buy it

If you can afford a 980 ti i'd go for that one.

Haha :rolleyes: If only I could.

[joke alert] This seems to be the plan: they will release the game and people are going to buy it and start opening threads, exchanging experiences on how the game runs on different hardware and different settings; once sufficient amount of time has passed, they will kindly ask the unpaid staff (i.e. the mods) to gather data and see which hardware runs the game at say 720p, 30fps, medium settings and declare that the minimum, and the hardware that can do 1080p, 30fps, high settings will be declared recommended (as has been announced). After that, they will release the information back to us and I expect that we will have it by Christmas, or, at the latest, early next year. :rolleyes:

This is seriously late though IMO :rolleyes:
With Unity we had the requirements like a month before release.

Two weeks to go and still nothing?
They have surely made and tested the game by now? So why nothing?

That is what I was thinking. I am assuming that there will be a physical retail box shipped out. Time needs to be given for the manufacture of the boxes, as well as the disc's that need to be pressed. Retail games have the system requirements on the back of the box. So this is strange in my opinion. Either 1) the pc release will be delayed 2) the pc version of syndicate will be a complete mess. I mean if Kiev is still trying to work with syndicate, this isn't good. Plus Kiev is just about worthless. The pc versions that they touch pretty much turn to crap.

the system worked for unity at a setting between high and ultra (some lags when to much ppl an the street or when examinign an eagle point...u know what i mean, i dont know the english spelling for that). But the cooling fans are at fullspeed then. At GTA V i can set up to a usage of 3.2 GB and the game still runs smooth. Wathc Dogs is brutal in taking ressources.

i dont want to wait for a year but then a 970 4b OC would be the best choice at the moment for me i think.
what do u mean?

You could buy a 970... it's a great card... it cannot max out gta v (I tried and got the warning) and performance in Unity is very similar to a 770... but the extra vram really helps. Checking ebay prices you could sell your 770 and buy a pre-owned (used) 970 for £30/ $30 or 30 euros more. I would consider that as a cheap way to upgrade until next year... the other way would be to buy a 980 ti and next year sell your motherboard and cpu and buy another motherboard and cpu but keep the 980 ti.

thats my system:
Gigabyte H87-HD3 Mainboard
Intel XEON E3-1230 V3
Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB
SSD (Samsung 830) and HD
16GB Ram (1600-10 Vengeance LP K2 COR)

When i check the "predicted Requirements" at THIS SITE (http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=20840&game=Assassins%20Creed:%20Syndicate) it seems that my processor does met the Reqs a little bit over the mark and the GTX 770 is very wide behind the mark.

I am thinking about 2 Options:
- Getting a GFX 980ti
or
- getting a 970 4GB OC and a new MB and CPU.


what do u think?

There is no need to change Xeon...very similar to i7-4770.
Get a GTX980 or GTX980Ti and Syndicate will run great on your PC. :)

Btw, what is your power supply?

a 970 and 980 require a minimum 500 w and a 980 ti is a minimum 600 w according to nvidia... so maybe a 970 for the moment and a system upgrade in 18 months.

Requirements are out :D
http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-syndicate-pc-specs/

Minimum
i5-2400 or FX-6350
6GB RAM
Nvidia gtx 660 or r9 270 (2gb VRAM)
directx 11

Recommended
i7-3770 of FX-8350
8GB RAM
nvidia gtx 760 or r9280x (3GB VRAM required )
directx 11

Windows 7,8.1 or 10 (64-bit only)

Lower than Unity , but still solid requirements
They have stated more optimized for SLI this time
All Nvidia Gameworks features make a return

(The recommended requirements are without the gameworks I believe) Special mention in the article gtx 970 I guess this card will be able to max out the game, @1080p

PC recommended GPU requirements

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (4GB) or the newer GTX 970 (4GB) or AMD Radeon R9 280X (3GB) or better


The 970 is way more powerful than a 760 or r9 280x. So what is being conveyed here. It is going to confuse a lot of people

you can disable them all, well 50% of them can be disabled from windows itself and other 50% can be disabled using hosts file entries and removing cortana and you gold :)

There are tons of guides online how to do this and it takes 5 mins to do, so you will be missing a great OS if you dont upgrade IMO.

They are not even comparable. :D 280X is similar to GTX770, not to GTX760. And GTX970 is really good card and so much better than 280X.
Maybe they put GTX970 here because of nVidia exclusive features, and they already know that Unity ran well on this card. :D

People just need to learn not to trust everything they read/hear.

This is reality:

Every Sandy, Ivy, Haswell or newer i3 processor will run Syndicate just fine. Core i5 isn't "minimum".
Also, every Phenom II X4 and similar processors, FX, FM2, at least quad.
6GB of RAM is ok, but you know that people mostly fill their Windows with so much "garbage" which is running in the background so there is a 3-4GB available to the game instead of 6. And that's why it is safe and proper to say 8GB is minimum, optimum and recommended.

I think the 760 970 280x is mentioned because of the larger Vram. As they are quoted at 4GB and 3Gb and 3GB is recommended.

Nowadays with ram so cheap I think everyone should have 8Gb if they are AAA game buyers. And Pc's tend to run out of ram quickly with all the background apps we use.

Danny I asked before but you may have missed it.... is the RX7 referring to the Suzuki ?

Hey all, I have received clarification on this for our dev team.

The reason the GTX 970 with 4GB VRAM was added was because it is the recommended GPU from the newer 900 Series. While it is more powerful than the GTX 760, the dev team wanted to clarify what the baseline recommended card is out of the newer 900 series in order to achieve recommended graphics settings.

The recommended specs are for achieving 1080p 30FPS; however, if your hardware is higher than the recommended settings then you'll be able to go higher than that.

I am not a huge expert when it comes to spec analysis, but I have enough knowledge and info to make safe points

DISCLAIMER : (These are my opinions)
And here goes. Let us begin with


Recommended:

Supported OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64bit versions only)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz
RAM: 8GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (4GB) or the newer GTX 970 (4GB) or AMD Radeon R9 280X (3GB) or better
DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
Sound: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers
Hard Drive: 50 GB available space

For now let's ignore the 970 from the list.
To quote Ubi again


The recommended system requirements will target 1080p and 30 FPS

Technical note from the developer: For a recommended experience, the game requires a video card with at least 3GB of VRAM when playing at a full HD resolution. While we encourage you to fiddle with the advanced options to fully customize your gaming experience, please keep an eye out for the VRAM meter usage when you adjust these settings.

What can we make out of recommended settings???

gtx 760 is a low-mid range card from 2013, it is actually one of the last keplers, The r9285x is a similar card (maybe slightly more powerful) Recommended is 1080p 30fps. And 1080p requires 3GB VRAM minimum. It is safe to say this means running it all the way ultra @30fps (Ignoring nvidia gameworks)

Here is a video showing Unity running on the cards at High, FXAA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyYvoQPYPbs

We are able to hit around 40s. Considering Syndicate is more optimized. We could say @Ultra, with gameworks off, we could hit a 30fps target, with some trade off we could hit maybe even 50+ on these cards @high perhaps(remember this engine has high and very high and ultra presets)

So that is what is expected of Syndicate performance wise.

Now about the GTX 970

To quote UbiJokhr


Hey all, I have received clarification on this for our dev team.

The reason the GTX 970 with 4GB VRAM was added was because it is the recommended GPU from the newer 900 Series. While it is more powerful than the GTX 760, the dev team wanted to clarify what the baseline recommended card is out of the newer 900 series in order to achieve recommended graphics settings.

how did this perform on unity?

Here is my own recording

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK1-tT-ypVU
I set AA to FXAA and shadows to high (everything else maxed). I get 60fps(vysnc without it can go to 70s) mostly with rare drops down to 52 @ crowded places. I am backed by a i5-4690k, SSD and 16gb RAM.
With Syndicate I would expect similar performance maybe a constant 60 and maybe AA set to MSAAx2.

What about minimum requirements?


Minimum:

Supported OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10(64bit versions)
Processor: Intel Core i5 2400s @ 2.5 GHz or AMD FX 6350 @ 3.9 GHz
RAM: 6GB or more for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 270 (2GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0)
DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
Sound: DirectX compatible sound card with latest drivers

Minimum requires 2GB of VRAM and it is not going to play 1080p without really lowering settings (3GB VRAM required,)

BUT ,
Both the GTX 660 and AMD card are more powerful than the PS4 GPU, but lack the shared memory resources of the PS4 (advantage of the PS4), Thus the 660 and amd cards advantage is slightly reduced.

I would say 900p at ultra high/ very high settings mix , would mimic consoles or maybe even a shade better. or 1080p with high as show below (The 750 ti and 950 would be in this league)

Lets see one more benchmark running unity @1080p high on these cards

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi83biaquVE

Summary

Overall all the cards from the minimum to maximum spectrum should play the game @1080p with varied settings,


For minimum configs
I would say that minimum requirements guy a 900p experience superior to consoles or go 1080p with some sacrifice @30fps



For recommended guys
The GTX 760 and similar should push above 45-50 with some settings lowered, or give you about 30-40 with all on ultra.



Above recommended guys
With little sacrifice most of us can go 60fps. easily. I guess.


Minimum range cards
GTX 660, GTX 670,gtx 750, GTX 750 ti, gtx 950, r9 270, r9 360, r9 370 , gtx 680, 960 (2gb versions)



Recommended Range cards
GTX 760(4gb), gtx 960(4gb), gtx 680(4gb), r9 290 r9 380 4GB versions for safety



Above recommended
gtx 780(4gb), gtx 780 ti, gtx 970, gtx 980, gtx 980 ti and The titans, r9 290x , r9 390, r9390x, r9 fury series



Special mention gtx 770 falls somewhere between recommended and above recommended. Not sure where to put it

Hope this guide helps tweak the game for optimal settings.

PS: CPU anything above i5-2400s should Do, go for 8gb RAM, SSD is a nice to have

UPDATE: GTX 970 is the recommended GPU for ACS by NVIDIA for 60fps gameplay with ultra high and HBAO+ enabled

I have GTX 750 2GB,I can run unity on mixed settings (something is on high ,something on medium and some on low). it runs ok but there are some locations where FPS drops ( not too bad but still anyoing),also runs on 1050p( im happy with resolution).My procesor is Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz,so I wonder are my pc specs good or shall I upgrade ?

Your graphic card could use a upgrade. maybe a 970 or 960 .(4gb) would help. If you could play unity, you can play this with your current card, but yea, get better performance with upgrade

The recommended specs are for achieving 1080p 30FPS; however, if your hardware is higher than the recommended settings then you'll be able to go higher than that.

We have additional High End PC specs on the Ubiblog. (http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-syndicate-pc-specs/)

I'm hoping to at least achieve 50-60 FPS with my current system. Assuming the game is well optimized & TXAA/PCSS features aren't as taxing as they are in other games. If that's the case, I'll just stick with SMAA & Ultra Shadows instead of TXAA & PCSS. Syndicate will still look incredibly beautiful.


EDIT* Congrats to me on my 69th post LOL

I think official requirements should be taken with a grain of salt. I played and finished AC II, AC II Brotherhood and AC III on laptop with i7-q720 processor and Geforce 310 M (512 MB). I was even able to run AC IV Black Flag on that system but the frame rate was too low. So, for what it's worth, assuming that Syndicate is not as poorly optimized as Unity and does not have huge crowds like Unity which brought even most powerful rigs to their knees, most systems which ran Unity should be able to run Syndicate fairly smoothly. There is no need to worry too much about GPUs and Processors. If you can run Unity, you will be fine.

You can install GPU-Z: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/
and see Memory type and size off your graphics card.
mmm seems it's 2048 MB, i should make it just about..but anyway it's years i play games with all the lowest setting and i don't care much ..... now, since i'm not sure if keep using windows 10 or go back to 7, i'm just wondering on wich system would the game work best...

According to this article on the official GeForce website, notice the fineprint which I've highlighted in red.

http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/assassins-creed-syndicate-system-requirements

It clearly states that the "recommended" GPU's indicated, will target 60FPS/1080p for the GTX 970 & 60FPS/1440p for the GTX 980ti.

Keep in mind that the fineprint also states that this targeted performance will be with "High" settings & HBAO+ enabled. It doesn't state anything about TXAA or PCSS being enabled.

This has me a little worried, we will just have to wait & see when the game launches. Fingers crossed for a good port. :nonchalance:

anything over 30 fps in assassin games and I'm happy... there are certain setting that may well showcase Nvidias ability but don't always look good to me anyway... pcss doesn't look right and txaa has been a little bit too aggressive in some games... I have seen radeonpro used to enable sweetfx in some games and it really adds contrast and looks better than txaa to me... but I guess it is down to personal tastes when we start playing with settings.... I always like a nice balance, I get the setting as nice as I can for myself... (this often involves turning off some nvidia settings) then I check performance... and tinker until it is right. :)

I have Gigabyte r9 380 4gb g1 gaming.

It should be fine, R9 380 and GTX960 are very similar.

Your i5 4690k and SSD are excellent choices and definitely add to performance, it shows what good choices can do in a pc system :)

@NikoTehGreatest... you can run it first and see what it does with a few adjustments to the settings. I have a 980 ti and I turn things to off and low to get the game looking how I want it to look. the highest settings will always hurt the performance but they can also make games look worse..... if you cannot get the visual quality you want at an acceptable performance then upgrade your gpu... as RVSage suggest the 960 or 970... I'd take the 970 because I'm not convinced a 960 can use 4gb effectively but I'm not the person to ask about that.

As long as the visuals are simmilar with consoles or slighty better ,also to have steady FPS (30 or higher),I'm happy :)
But I intend to purchase new GPU next year,somewhere around Easter, so which graphics card should I buy that will last for a good 2-3 years?

strigoi1958
11-07-2015, 01:45 AM
The new cards will be out next year and if they are too expensive you can pick up a 980ti at around 35 to 40% less than it is now... (maybe more) it's a 6gb vram card and I'll be keeping mine a few years. Also DX12 may probably help games and vram demands.

From the requirements and videos for this game, it seems its not very demanding like Unity, so as personal opinion, if you can pull up more than 30 FPS in Unity then this game should run with higher FPS, worst case is same FPS, but ofcourse this is just a speculation and i could be wrong.

for me i can pull upto 55 FPS in Unity @2560x1440 maxed out (FXAA and PCSS off) on single GTX 970, so i expect to be able to pull same FPS with MFAA (2xMSAA).

For some reason the link doesn't work but I copied and pasted in in to my browser. :)

@ginovanta... yes, win 8 is completely strange... it's more an OS for mobiles and tablets but definitely NOT a PC operating system... a few people brought out apps that made it more like win 7 and Microsoft admitted they failed with win 8... so with win 8.1 they made it more like win 7... (plus I believe it gave access to dx11.1 or 11.2) but win 10 is really good, it is 99% stable now and is very nice... as I absolutely never wanted to let go of win 7, that shows how much win 10 has done to overcome my reluctance to change. :D

Also when DX12 comes it will be a big game changer.

I got a GTX 970, 16GB RAM and i7 4770 with 30-55 fps in Unity (NVIDIA settings at 1920 x 1080) which was great imo. I'm however a bit affraid of my CPU, seeing Fallout 4 for example recommends an i7 4790 already.

No need to worry. 4770 and 4790 are basically the same, and that 200Mhz won't make a difference in games.

There is a huge exaggeration here on CPU part, i have never seen my CPU (3770k @ 4.5 Ghz) being utilized more than 50% on all cores in most demanding games and that was for some parts and most of the time it is sitting on 30%-35%.

i'm seriousely considering gettign rid of it though, it's driving me crazy! it hangs for a few minutes every small thing i try to do and utorrent has started crashing on startup when on seven it ran smooth as oil, i cannot even use it and i can't find any solution

Gino, you do know you only have about 30 days to revert back to your previous version of Windows?
After that your license key is no longer valid for the previous version.

I'm guessing your laptop will play it at some level.... your desktop is excellent... it's difficult to say whether it will run continuously at 60 fps at max... because nvidia settings can really hurt performance and the highest setting do not always look best. Your pc would run it at 60 fps at settings I think look best. I would suggest just keep adjusting the settings until it looks best for you then play the game.... ignore watching any fps counter and if you are happy with the game then it doesn't matter if you're getting 60 or 50 fps.

so i ordered a gigabyte GTX 970 G1 yesterday... i think its enough and the rest (according to the price for a gtx 980ti) i will invest in a new soundsystem (i still own a cambridge soundworks 2500 dts from creative, bought 1998) lol

Good choice going with the 970 at the moment, it's the best card for the price...

I remember the cambridge 2500 that was the first 5.1 I ever heard on a pc it was amazing. Playing games ... it would make me stop and look behind me because the sound was too realistic. still amazing dolby sound quality. I'm sure audio equipment has moved on but that is still a great system :)
