Hi!
I think ACU is very awsome but what are the system requirements for this game.
I want to know if my PC supports it.

We won't find out about that until late September.

In an interview one of the team said if your PC can run AC4BF then you should be fine for ACU.

I agree with Mayrice. It's the same engine and all, but the game's graphics seems to be on a much higher level than they were on Black Flag...

Honestly he was probably thinking on a very wide range and Ubi's optimization has always been **** too so there's that.

I think he meant if you can play B4 quite comfortably (at least 40-50 fps in most places) then Unity shouldn't be getting you into unplayable frame rates (anything below 30)

Yeah, that makes more sense. Thanks for clarifying. Still, I believe the OP's best bet is to wait for the official requirements in September.

Hopefully AC:U is better optimised than AC IV. Great graphics is all well & good but we need 60 FPS!

What exactly is 3rd or 4th generation PC?

my laptop is an ivy bridge i7 3537U with 8gb ram and 2 gb integrated card for now it ran all the games with a little lag, but when the generation of consoles is upgraded, I can assume that its not gonna work with ACU, may be it will work with low settings who knows ?

so I am going to replace it with haswell i7 with a good graphics card ... not an integrated one to keep things smooth ..

Dont worry, your PC will be outdated and getting slow way before a new generation of consoles get released, those next gen ones will last for at least 5 years from now, so taking into consideration they are already 3-4 years behind current PC now, we are talking about 8-9 years behind PC until a new gen comes out. so whatever reasons to upgrade your PC/laptop will be irrelevant to consoles as they are always behind current PC hardware.

The performance difference between Ivy Bridge and Haswell is tiny, and both are way ahead of consoles CPUs performance. Each Athlon 5150 core (PS4/Xbone CPU is basically 5150 with more cores) at its rated 1.6 GHz (which also happens to be PS4 CPU clock) is 5 times slower than 3.4 GHz Ivy/Haswell core.
Also dont buy notebooks for games. They are either weak or weight like desktops, work for 10-20m on battery and still dont provide the same experience.

This. The only difference between Ivy & Haswell is that Haswell has beefed up integrated graphics, is a bit more energy efficient and is slightly better than Ivy clock-for-clock. There's no reason to upgrade from Ivy or even Sandy to Haswell except if you wanted to take advantage of the more powerful integrated graphics. Haswell also runs hotter, which is the last thing you need in a laptop. I recommend getting a desktop. They cost less, run cooler and have more powerful components. Unless you're gaming on the go, invest in a desktop PC :)

I have an ASUS RoG laptop
runs on:
Windows 8.1
Intel core i7 4700HQ CPU 2.40GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760m graphics card
12Gb of ram
latest cooling down system

And by visiting a lot of web pages, forums... My notebook will surely run ACU on Ultra Settings...
I already have all AC, Far Cry and WATCH_DOGS games and i run them all on Ultra

I also contacted NVIDIA and asked them if i could run it they said of course... the next upcoming games in the next 3-4 years no problems!

760M = desktop 660. Its unable to run AC4 or WD on max with comfortable fps. For this you need at least desktop 770 which is twice as powerfull.

well if i were you i wouldnt count on what Nvidia said, what Anykeyer said is true and based on users' experiences, the main question here is at which resolution you play on Ultra??

i highly doubt its 1920 x 1080, 760M is a very weak low end card (forget the marketing hype), 760m couldnt even sustain 13 FPS on Crysis or 20 FPS on bioshock , while GTX 760 gave 3x performance, here is a quick bench below, Anykeyer said 770 GTX will be 2x performance of 760M, but since 760 GTX is 3x faster, then i believe 770 GTX is alot faster, maybe by 4x or more.

Are you sure... Well all i know for sure is that it will surely run far cry 4 and ACU but not nesseceraly on ultra... medium for sure i also checked a couple of sites suggesting the predicted system requirements... so hopefully
ANd i play on full res... and sorry Watch dogs i play on very high...Ultra works but it gets laggy in cinematics

what do you mean by full res?! give me numbers. (go to watch dogs Display settings and post the resolution that is set there)

now whether it will run or not, i cannot say without official requirements, i believe -as personal opinion- it will run, but how good ?? depends on your screen resolution.

but as advise, i have to 100% agree with Anykeyer here, never get a laptop for gaming, they are overpriced with lots of hype around them, also they are 3x-4x slower than a desktop gaming PC for the same price.

Also remember, Ubisoft doesnt support laptops video cards, their games might run (99% probably) but they are not officially supported and this is mentioned in every game's disclaimer.

My bad, looks like I overesitimated 760M by just looking at its GPU architecture and shader cores. I forgot mobile usually has lower clocks as well. Its GK106, but its not even full like desktop GTX660, core config is the same as 650Ti with 30% lower clock speeds, So yes, 4x difference looks more probable.
Usually I dont like to point at someones mistake when money is already burned on it but he asked for it :)

Well luckily enough for me i received it from my grand parents! Im not saying my GTX760m is the best out there... what you say is true i know but as i also do studies i thought it would be good to get a gaming pc.
But as a desktop computer what do you recommend... or maybe i just get the PS4

1920x1080 on very high config

i'm not sure what you mean by Very High, but i found a benchmark online using 765M which is slightly a better card that couldnt sustain 20 FPS on high settings @ 1920 x 1080, dont get me wrong, im not trying to show you how bad your video card is as its a known fact that its a laptop card and cannot even compete with desktop, but i'm trying to understand how could the game be perfectly fine with proper FPS on high settings @ 1920 x 1080 while desktop users with 2x-3x faster cards cannot sustain constant 50 FPS. logically its impossible unless you tone down all other graphics settings especially AA, here is the bench for your reference:

if you are a casual PC user and dont know how to deal with PC problems when they arise and dont like to fiddle with drivers and related stuff, then get a PS4, otherwise building a desktop PC depends on your budget.

Actually you guys are partially right...
I read something about gaming pcs that said the recent gaming pcs (notebooks and desktops) are both just as good. but the most reliable are of course desktop pc's.
And by doing 4hours straight of reasearch... i finally came up with a conclusion that my pc is by far not the best and by far not the worst it sits in the top of the mid range of gaming notebooks...
It has a great speed and 16 gb RAM... so i should be able to run far cry 4 and assassins creed unity (surley not on ultra but medium for sure or even on high)!
The gtx 760m has an average score of 8/10 thats by visiting lots of websites (not nvidia of course) but tech reviews gpu reviews...

New gen of gaming notebook now are just as good as desktops but more expensive and have a greater chance of crashing and overheating thats all but it doesnt mean it will happen!

No, we are completely and totally right. New gen of "gaming" notebooks is just as good as desktops

were 3 years ago

Even the most expensive models dont carry nvidia GK110 chips. And thats if we only talk about pure performance but there's so much more advantages desktops provide. Big IPS screens, great sound systems, better input devices, more expansions options and upgradeability.

RAM : 6GB
GPU : DX11 with 1GB of VRAM (GTX 470 / Radeon 5850)

Ram : 8GB

Hopefully I'm not too far off the mark. I think those are reasonably demanding requirements for a next-gen only game.

That does not make your laptop any less super low-end.
Don't be surprised if Unity is way too much for your laptop to handle : this is utterly expected of a next-gen game.

Maxwell is just around the corner by the way if you are looking for a gaming PC.

Your call but if you change your mind there will be plenty of very reasonable options to build a good gaming PC.
A PC can only not work properly if you are clueless as to what you want out of it, it all comes down to standards.

A mid-range PC (I5 3570/GTX760/8gb of RAM) will most likely play Unity as well as a PS4 already and there are much more powerful setups available right now.
I'm even expecting a Geforce 850 to rival a PS4 and that's the low-tier in Nvidia's naming scheme.

Amazing times ahead for PC gaming.

well only thing i dont like in these is DX11.1, i would love to see DX11.2 with tiled resources implemented, i know its not going to happen at least for this game as 3GB of Vram is not justified at all since you can use DX11.2 and run 3 GB texture using just 16 MB of GPU memory. so i hope Ubisoft makes the switch since Crytek has already made it which motivates other developers to do it and push this feature further.

DX11.2 is apparently not fully supported by Kepler cards. Hence why I don't think anyone will bother with it, DX11.1 brings some nice features and could (if ressources allow) make the cut for some next-gen games in the near future. Any performance improvements are welcome.
I think there is a very good chance the frame buffer with everything maxed will reach 3GB. Even more if you're playing at >1080p.

Aside from that It's safe to say we are looking at a very CPU intensive game.

Optimized or not your machine is just waaay outdated.
Nvidia have pulled the plug on DX10 GPUs so it's a foregone conclusion that Unity will be a DX11 only game.

Basically you are out of the loop, you need to upgrade if you want to play next-gen games on PC.

I don't think so.
Your laptop won't achieve miracles in Unity, it's just weak there is nothing you can do about it.

If you want to be serious about PC gaming you need a desktop with quality parts in there.

Asking for evaluation of specs while the official requirements were not published yet seems a bit off, but since such a thread exists.. What do you, PC wizzards, think -

- will
16GB RAM
Sapphire R9 720x 4GB
AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz
cut it?

I am about to switch to such configuration (rather a budget-choice) this fall and was just wondering...
Right now I have the exact processor, but 1/4th of the above RAM and GPU memory (AMD Radeon hd5670 1GB); having a hard time to get ACBF to run past 20FPS...(drops to 8 at naval engagements...)

Anykeyer
07-24-2014, 08:36 AM
AMD CPUs are bad, really bad. In most games yours will barely compete with Intel i3. I would not recommend upgrading current system
Also this AMD GPU is nice but last 2 AC games had some major performance issues on AMD cards.
I dont think games will need more than 8GB of RAM anytime soon. The only game to actually break this barrier is Wolfenstein New Order. But thats because idtech 5 is unlike any other game engine, it has practically infinite memory requiremenents if you set virtual texture cache size to some crazy values.

Thanks for your answer Anykeyer. My current configuration is already 4+ years old so it's time for a change.
Appreciate your opinion on the CPU, but since my Gigabyte motherboard has an AM3 socket I'm kinda stuck with AMD processors for a while... Switching to Intel would be a too great expense at the moment so I have to go with some palliatives...

RAM is what I need for working on large photoshop files and real time rendering in 3d software - if my gaming experience benefits from this upgrade; so much the better :)

Thanks again

Hey billy, no need for this kind of attitude, no one said that you cannot run the game, Anykeyer just made a clear point that whatever gaming laptop you have, GPU will always be weak and wont be able to run demanding games at 1920 x 1080 on high settings same as desktop, so laptops cannot be compared to desktops and this is a clear fact. the other guy who you have better specs than his is playing at 1600 x 900 resolution which is lower than yours since you mentioned you play @ 1920 x 1080, and resolution is the base performance changer.

i'm sorry but dont expect to run the game on medium-high with your specs @ 1920 x 1080 resolution and get a decent FPS, if you lower your resolution, then you might be able to run the game fine on medium settings.

thats without mentioning that official requirements have not been released yet, so please cool down.

From what i saw... Far Cry 4 wont need as much power to run it as its a FPS and there wont be as many MP's as in ACU so i guess the sys req for FC4 wont be as demanding... i reckon that i will be able to run the game at least on medium full res.

I think that's a stretch considering your hardware. Unless the game really blows at medium settings.

I'm hoping for a very demanding game. It's been a while since we've had e true system killer on PC, I miss that sorely and this is coming from someone who will surely not be able to run Unity or FC4 at max settings.

Personally, i don't think anyone will have anything to worry about.

If you can run BF on decent settings with decent performance (i got highs of 40-50fps while at sea on my old system), then we should be good with Unity, and since i'm personally anticipating that they'll pull another Watch Dogs stunt for the PC version of ACU (haven't played WD, but I heard about the sh*t-storm), well, then we'll definitely be fine.

as said before, official requirements have not been released yet, however, i think you mean AMD FX 8320, there are too many variables to the term "max it out", so putting AA aside and talking about 1920x1080 resolution, in my personal opinion i dont think you can, probably will be able to run it at high settings.

so lets wait for official requirements to be sure.

Maximum settings ? With a mid-range GPU released 2 years ago ?

No chance in hell and that's totally normal, if you want to max a demanding game out at 1080p you will need higher grade hardware.

Sometimes I don't understand how people can have such ludicrous expectations regarding their hardware, it does not take a genius to figure out that maximum settings (even disregarding AA) will always push towards to the higher end of the spectrum.

You are not forced to pre order now you know.
Just wait until the specs are out in the wild, usually 1 month-3 weeks before the release.

Keep in mind that Unity on PC will very likely be delayed. My personnal (and very educated) expectation is November 25th, three good weeks after the skus that Ubisoft is actually interested in pushing.

now whether it will run or not, i cannot say without official requirements, i believe -as personal opinion- it will run, but how good ?? depends on your screen resolution.

but as advise, i have to 100% agree with Anykeyer here, never get a laptop for gaming, they are overpriced with lots of hype around them, also they are 3x-4x slower than a desktop gaming PC for the same price.

Also remember, Ubisoft doesnt support laptops video cards, their games might run (99% probably) but they are not officially supported and this is mentioned in every game's disclaimer.

Well.. I am putting this out there since some people have no idea but whatever you do - never take estimates from Game-Debate because they are always 80% off on all of their specs for pre-released "estimations".

My best and most educated guess for Ultra Detail of ACU is:

CPU: 3.6Ghz Quad-Core (3.2Ghz Intel)
GPU: GTX 780Ti SLI (or equivalent) / GTX 880 (a possibility) or GTX Titan Black -Z
8GB of DDR3 1688Mhz RAM
and 35-40GB HDD space.

My best and most educated guess for Medium of ACU is:

CPU: 3-3.2Ghz Dual Core (2.8Ghz Intel)
GPU: GTX 760 or 770 (not Ti, not SLI) (or equivalent)
8GB of DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
and 35-40GB HDD space.

My best and most educated guess for Low of ACU is:

CPU: Dual Core 2.8Ghz (2.5Ghz Intel)
GPU: GTX 750Ti, GTX 660 (or equivalent)
8GB of DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
and 35-40GB HDD space.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that these are only my estimates since I had to take in that it is the same engine only reworked and rebuilt for next gen (more animations, and more in-depth mechanics). The textures are more advanced, and lighting system is enhanced over Black Flag (as you can see seamless reflections of water in the streets of Paris). There will be 4-Player Coop which will consume more CPU strength, as well as high-speed internet. And finally the largest substantial change I have noticed is - MUCH more parts moving on the screen in real time in any given area. There are parts in the game that are reported to support anything from 20,000-30,000 characters on screen at the same time, which will demand a large hit on components to render each character using the GPU and to calculate the AI solving thousands of additional problems per character using the CPU.

I rated these on comparison to Black Flag, Watch Dogs, and Splinter Cell Blacklist with my current computer. I am running 4.7Ghz 8-Core (and the only game that revs my CPU is Watch Dogs), and I have a single GTX 780 Ti Classified which can take a hit with AC Black Flag on Ultra, with 16GB of 1600Mhz CAT9 RAM.

Unless Ubisoft has extremely advanced itself through PC optomisation, I am figuring in order to play ACU in Ultra I'll have to upgrade my GPU to GTX 780Ti SLI for 55+ FPS.

http://postimg.org/image/xy5w24f5b/

each game is different and PC optimization levels vary, as an example, i was able to run Crysis 3 fully maxed out with 4xMSAA @ 2560 x 1440p , avg FPS 45 FPS, 4xTxaa will give me around 55-65 FPS , while running other demanding games i couldnt sustain 60 FPS on high settings. so if you are able to run a specific demanding game with proper FPS then unfortunately you cannot assume you can run other games at the same level unless if they are using same engine (Cryengine, Unreal engine,...). ACU is using a new revamped engine, no one knows how PC optimization levels would be, but i would ASSUME and hope it will give decent performance since it only supports next gen consoles and PC, and they share the same architecture.

Anyhow, i think -as personal opinion- both of you will be fine , 770 GTX with that resolution should be able to run the game on high/ultra, and 660 GTX should be able to run the game on medium/high @ 1920x1080, thats with FXAA.

i know bro, but i always try to be positive and optimistic, this time which is for the first time there is no old gen handicapping PC performance, so i really hope that this one will break all odds since all platforms share the same architecture.

Yeah, there is definitely more hope in this one. Who knows? The game might end up running at 60 fps on consoles as well. If that is the case, then I can see of no reason why it wouldn't run on modern PCs at the same framerate.

PS to all the people posting in this thread: System requirements are usually reales at the end of September. Do not expect to know the system requirements while the game has not gone gold.

Incorrect. Game-Debate as mentioned in my previous post in this thread is often wrong on most pre-released games. They always under estimate the system requirements. For example - look at GTA V PC Specs. According to Game-Debate it'll take roughly a 400-600 dollar computer to run the game smoothly on max detail which is incorrect if you wait to the actual release, and if you have any experience with the amount of textures and physics in the console GTA V version. Not to also account for RockStar and their reputation for very poor PC ports from consoles. In truth, neither Rockstar or Ubisoft are dedicated PC game developers.

Also - within doing further research, my current computer should be able to run AC4 flawlessly on Ultra settings - but if I use the filtration on mediocre, and use high or ultra settings, then I experience drastic framerate losses on 1080p. The requirements for AC4 is "Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 or AMD Radeon HD 4870" (system requirements lab), and recommended is "Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 or AMD Radeon HD 5850" (system requirements lab) - where as I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 780Ti -C, well beyond the requirements of the game - and it can often have framerates as low as the Xbox 360 and lower even.

Unity uses updated AnvilNext in the same manner Revelations used updated Anvil from AC2. I would not expect any wonders, especially considering Ubi Kiev being responsible for PC version, Unity wont run better than AC4 did. Actually I expect it to be even more demanding. If 770 will be able to maintain 30-40 on ultra at full HD it will be good.

You are hating too much. I don't expect anything great from Unity either (on the contraty actually), but a GTX 770 should be capable of running the game, at least at console quality @ 50-60 FPS. If the game is to run on a PS4 and X1 that is.

ACRev had better performance than ACB. It's all down to the optimisation and the production goals.

If Ubisoft developers say, "all right, we are aiming for 30 FPS on consoles" and they do not give a **** about further optimising the game on the PC to achieve 60, then it is going to be nearly impossible to hit constant 60 frames per second. And that was exactly the case with AC4. Completely ommitting to include Tripple Buffering in the game is a sign of indifference towards the PC version.

So, if with Unity, their production goals are higher, then the PC version might just not be so bad as the rest of the games. 1080p demands for 60 fps anyway. So, if they want to have the game on the PS4 / X1 run at 1080p resolution, they might have to bump up the framerate as well, something which will benefit the PC version highly.

Also, with Sony out of the equation (which I hold responsible of all the years of the bad PC optimisation and the Watch Dogs fiasco), we just might get a better PC version all around this year.

So, if they want to have the game on the PS4 / X1 run at 1080p resolution, they might have to bump up the framerate as well, something which will benefit the PC version highly.

Also, with Sony out of the equation (which I hold responsible of all the years of the bad PC optimisation and the Watch Dogs fiasco), we just might get a better PC version all around this year.


acb and acrev have a lot of difference with respect to graphics ... acrev ran like a charm ... and i am also hopeful that acu will be better optimized for pc .. but lets not hope for something based on rumors and speculations, be ready for anything

I reckon if you can run Watchdogs on high with x4 AA on your be able to run Unity fine on high settings.

I expect that with 1680x1050 Res and a 2GB card around the 570GTX / 7970 series cards your get High Mediums and people over this spec should easy get High Mediums to High settings

Depends though, High with what resolution and what level of anti-aliasing ?

AherasSTRG
08-15-2014, 11:39 AM
I suggest that you should avoid any conclusions concerning the System Requirements. As long as the game is in developement, everything is subject to change. Last year, we got the official system requirements around the 19th of September.

A Watch Dogs dev said last year that Minimum System Requirements mean 30FPS @ High/1080p. And for the most part, he was right. He didn't specify AA though, which, in my opinion is an ovverated graphical setting.

Anykeyer

Usually "High" is by itself a profile, which often already includes certain resolution and AA/AF levels

AherasSTRG
08-15-2014, 11:50 AM
Well, that depends on the game. I think that developers prefer to put the AA setting under the "Display" category, rather than the "Graphic Settings" category.

Im so exited about this game, i brought a new rig in January

Amd Athlon 4x 750k, 8gb Corsair 1600mhz, Amd R9 270 2gb

i ran the Black Flag easily on my PC everything on Max settings and Max Resolution with no lag

I think the new system req will be similar as Black Flag cuz its the Same engine right? but better lightning and details?!

What do you think guys?

playlisting
08-17-2014, 11:47 PM
If the game is poorly optimised like Black Flag was at launch, then I reckon the ultra reqs for 1080p will be as follows:

Sandy Bridge quad core Intel i5 processor (something like a 2500K)
DirectX 11 GPU with 2GB VRAM (so a GTX 670/680, might be able to get away with ultra on a GTX 580 as well).
8GB of RAM.

I used Intel/NVIDIA as the examples there, but for AMD the recommended CPU might be a FX 6300/8350. GPU maybe a R9 270X/HD 7970.

If the game is optimised properly then it should be a lot easier to get away with high/ultra on less powerful rigs.

08-18-2014, 01:07 AM
i do have a feeling (ALL ASSUMPTIONS AND EXPECTATIONS SINCE OFFICIAL REQUIREMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN RELEASED BY UBISOFT YET) that the game will only run on x64 windows and will require quad core CPU, Nvidia 400/AMD 5000 and 4 GB of ram as min. for recommended it will need 8-cores CPU (however i think 4 cores will do just fine), 8 GB RAM and Nvidia 670/AMD 7950 HD.

i5/i7 (AMD CPUs will traditionally support only 30 fps)
6/8GB RAM (will swap like crazy with just 4GB but will work)

40GB HDD

If not, the difference in performance between an Intel i5 3570 and an Intel i7 3770 for Watch Dogs was less than 1 FPS and was the same for AC4 BF.

Anykeyer

They are old games. Bottlenecked by single core performance, which is the same for i5 and i7. If Ubi claims to have 60 fps in ACU running on PS4 (8 weak cores) then they had to use multithreading better than they did before. Which means i7 should benefit from this as well.

Hello, I just been thinking on pre-order the game though I haven't been convinced yet mainly because since Black Flag we now know that Ubisoft have been working with Templars all along, so now, I know they only care about my money...:rolleyes:

But anyway, I have a dumb question: if I can run Black Flag on ultra settings with 1920x1080 resolution I can run AC Unity, right? right? :P
And why is U-play so damn evil?? Yes I know is Abstergo behind it but one would think that Ubi would be stronger from Templar influence unlike EA games!!! (I heard Sims 4 is in fact a form of mass media brainwashing control)

according to Ubisoft, if you can run blackflag then you can run this game just fine, however, i would recommend waiting for official PC requirements, you can preorder anytime even 1 day before release, so to be sure, wait a little bit for req to come out.

Hi,

Whilst I enjoyed Assassins Creed 4 I found that I had to constantly tinker with the settings in order to get an fps of 50+. I have a new gaming laptop and a fairly recent PC. Both have good specs.

I have seen from multiple sources over this year that the CPU optimisation was something that let the game down and a lot of the processing that should have occurred on the graphics processor unnecessarily took place in the CPU.

I do not know enough about this to rely on what I read, so I have a number of questions that I wondered if Ubisoft could respond to :-


Is the PC port implemented by the same Ubisoft division for Unity?
Can Ubisoft demonstrate how they are improving optimisation for the PC for Unity?
Can Ubisoft confirm the results of the CPU and GPU analysis others have done ?

1. Unofrtunately yes. Ubisoft Kiev is once again responsible for porting the game to PC.
2. They can I guess, but they won't.
3. With all the setups out there, such a confirmation would be really difficult.

All in all, if you are not a fan of AC, wait until there are some solid benchmarks before you decide whether to buy the game or not.

Unity texture wise isn't a huge step up, however lighting is soo much more improved, the larger crowds is also a huge improvement.

I'm kinda skeptical about the large crowds. Sounds like something that needs a lot of CPU power, and they would have to improve the engine a lot to make it run well with all those crowds. IIRC I've run into CPU bottlenecks in AC from the beginning. Especially AC3 was ridiculous, I wasn't able to utilize two GPUs almost at all because the CPU was limited to using so little of its capacity. The performance was all over the place, while neither my CPU or GPUs were having that much to do.

I'd go with HIGH settings @1920x1080 with a low AA setting, considering I had a R9 280x on watch dogs @ 1920x1080with my i5 2500K and I got 50-80 FPS on watch dogs on high settings with 2x MAA.

true, but you can hardly call it a bottleneck, if you got i5 sandybridge and PCIe @16x , then there is nothing to worry about, most of gamers have that already without mentioning others with 8-cores and OCed CPUs, so if thats the trade, i would take it anytime over increasing VRAM.

the only reason i dont see this coming and supported by future games is due to DX11.2 exclusive to win 8.1, hopefully DX12 will change that and support win7.

well, if the game scales well on multi-cores CPU, then i dont see any problem in your CPU, but 4 GB RAM is too low, the standard nowadays is at least 8 GB so you may have a problem here, your video card is an entry level card but it shouldnt be a problem running the game at low/medium settings.

I worry about not being able to play on anything over the absolute lowest details because my GPU only has 1GB of ram. If Watch Dogs is any indication of how future next gen ports are gonna be like, I expect vram usage of games to go sky high. My GPU is a 6870. And yes, I'm gonna upgrade it, but not now.

System requirements are usually released one month before the official date. Besides, you really don't need the system requirements to tell you if your PC can "run" the game.
If you follow PC hardware it's very easy to predict.

My speculation is fairly realistic I think, I7 3770/FX 8350 and a 670/Radeon 7970 for 1080p/ near max settings at a good framerate.

The 260 is a very low end GPU though....So don't blame the game if Unity runs poorly on it. It's up to you to have the right gear.


I worry about not being able to play on anything over the absolute lowest details because my GPU only has 1GB of ram. If Watch Dogs is any indication of how future next gen ports are gonna be like, I expect vram usage of games to go sky high. My GPU is a 6870. And yes, I'm gonna upgrade it, but not now. Probably early next year. Even AC4 at the absolute lowest details takes up about 980mb.
Yup, 1GB of RAM won't get you far at all in Unity. If I were you I'd get the game on PS4 or Xbox.
Depending on your budget there will be plenty of good stuff for you.

FX 8350 is not much more expensive than the CPU i want to buy, so let's say i can get a 8350, but a GTX 670? That thing is worth more than the rest of the pc combined.

Actually a 670 isn't what I should have said.
A 680 is the minimum GPU I would recommend for high settings at 1080p, pure speculation of course.
Anyway it really depends on your resolution and target framerate. A R9 270 is good enough for 900p.

A R9 i can afford, and i don't want a very high resolution given that my display has a maximum of 1600x900. And i'm not going to buy a new one unless this one breaks. But i heard nvidia would be better. What is the Nvidia equivalent for a R9 270 2gb ram?

The Geforce 660ti I think. You're better off with AMD in terms of pure price/performance.

A 270 should do very well at 900p. Not far behind a PS4 in spite of the PC API.

my rule of thumbs would be - if the PC is as powerful as the PS4\XB1 than the game should run as well as the console. that's about it.

when i upgraded my computer a few months ago what i did was buy hardware that surpasses the consoles by a little and i count on being able to run games as well as the PS4 and XB1 for the next few years. i dont think PCs will surpass the visuals of consoles in any meaningful aspects other than resolution, which i dont care THAT much about as long as it's over 1050P.

Consoles are fixed platforms + low level APIs. You just can't ask an equivalently specced PC to do as good.

I don't pretend to be a soothsayer, everything you read here is more or less informed speculation. Keep that in mind.

With that said, what resolution are you playing at ? At 1080p I don't see a 560ti with 1gb of VRAM to fare as well as you'd like it to.
Perhaps at 900p.

If you want medium/high settings at 1080p/30fps a 660 is the minimum I would recommend.

since the architecture of the consoles this gen is more like a PC than i sorta expect that optimizing for consoles and PC wont be too jarring, so if a PS4 can run a game at 1080p with a certain graphical fidelity than i hope my PC (which is more than a PS4) can run the game at the same res and at the same graphical fidelity, give or take. im not into high res nor high AA so i am crossing fingers my 280 3gb Vram will handle itself OK for a while.... the consoles specs arent going to change and ports should get better over time (like they did with the 360\ps3) so maybe i'll be fine.

i cant see how PC ports will become better looking than console games besides higher display resolution and maybe better AA and HBAO tech and other , mostly negligible, stuff.

I trust BlastThyName. He had predicted well ahead of time that:

1. Watch Dogs would be the first true next-gen game to run @ 1080p / 60 FPS on the PS4. He knew that it would be the new Crysis.
2. A GTX 760 wouldn't be on par with the PS4.
3. The System Requirements for Watch Dogs released in October would be the final.
4. You would need an i7 to play most of the games coming out in 2014.
5. Watch Dogs would utilise around 6 GBs of RAM.
6. That the low level API of the PS4 would quadruple its proccessing power making it similar to a today's high-end PC.

How can you not trust this guy? So many predictions coming true...

I never claimed a low-level API could 4x the performance. You must be confusing with someone else. I was indeed incorrect on a number of other things, I'll admit that. No idea where you pulled that I7 would be "needed". But more cores being logical or physical will certainly be useful, especially when multithreading-friendly APIs will be the standard on PC.

PC like architecture does not change the fact that consoles are fixed specs as opposed to PC being a moving target. You won't get the same experience with 6 jaguar cores and a 7870 on PC. You'll need much more CPU wise and certainly more GPU wise. I don't believe for a second your 280 will holds its own against a PS4 when it is maxed.
Feel free to believe what you want.

Real-time rendering has a long way to go and if budget allows PC versions could push the tech much further. This is all dependant on the amount of ressources publishers are willing to throw at the PC versions.

i am not trying to convince anyone my believes are right. just speculating and having a discussion. i dont know that much about the subject but "how much resources publishers are willing to through" is exactly the issue. obviously the PC will be a much stronger machine than the consoles soon enough, but they HAVE been much stronger than the 360\ps3 for more than 6 years and were capable of what we're seeing today in games for the past 4 years or so yet we havent seen anything as pretty until now. publishers and developers will NOT utilize what the PC can do. no publisher will integrate a more sophisticated lighting engine, for example, just for the PC so it can utilize it's advantage. developers will only make games as pretty as the consoles allow them to run (accept AA and reosolution and other relatively minor and scale-able features) so just because a beasty PC can make a game look twice as good as the XB1 doesnt mean it will.

i guess you're right and in a few years i will have to upgrade my 280 3GB vram for something else, but i dont expect a lot of heavy upgrade in my future. i had my latest HD4870 for many years and it coul still run AC4 really well (on 1680X1050 with medium quality AA) and i was generally happy with it.

i have no doubt the consoles run games better than on equivalent PCs but by how much? 10% more FPS? 25%?? is that difference really big?

Up to 25%. It is mathematically proven that with the current approach, you cannot go any higher than that. Of course, in most cases it fluctuates between 10 and 15% depending on the nature of the application and the design philosophy of the machine.

Provided the game is properly optimised, you will definitely manage High with your setup at acceptable framerates. Generally speaking, when asking about the potential performance of your PC setup, you should ask on serious hardware / PC forums, like tomshardware.com. The people in these forums (the Assassin's Creed forums I mean) are cluesless when it comes to computer architecture. They are also cluesless in simple mathematics and physics.

It depends on what you mean by run. For some people it's 30-40 fps, and for others, it's 50-60 fps. I'm not too familiar with AMD graphic cards, but I think you should be more than able to hit 30-40fps on max settings with the R9 290.

And according to the devs and stuff, AC:U's performance is about the same as AC:IV. So if you're running Black Flag on ultra at 1080p, Unity should be able to as well. Although, you should still be somewhat wary. Never forget the Watch_Dogs incident... :(

Hehe, should have writen that down to.
I prefer to play games with atleast 50-60 fps, but guess i have to enjoy AC: Unity with medium, MAYBE high settnings.
Yeah, Watch dogs is one game i had BIG expectations for, i was so a Watch dogs fan, that i searched the whole internet for info 1 year before it came out.. At the final release, i got disappointed. I first thought they just needed time for things like graphic preformance, but here almost 6 month after release i see the same Watch dogs.. The game is not optimised at all...

Yes, he will run unity on good framerates at good settings, but don't think if he can run black flag at 1080 on ultra, he'll run unity on ultra. the devs said if you can run black flag at good framerates, that will happen with unity, they didn't specify the settings.

i have a feeling (and i might be wrong here) that even on low the game will look better than any previous AC game. i think that next gen games are created with different tech that just looks better.
i think that on LOW the game will have lower texture res, pop ups and slightly less objects in the farther environment, maybe jagged shadows or poor AA, but will still retain the general look of it since what makes the game appear beautiful is the lighting engine, animations and attention to details. if you have enough RAM and Vram than you can set the textures to be medium or high and that might be enough for the game to look better than any other AC game.

since , personally, i barely notice jeggies in shadows or edges of polygons than i dont mind running a game on custom settings that are somewhat medium (high in certain settings like HBAO or texture resolution and low on AA and shadows) and get a smooth gameplay.

Yup, 1GB of RAM won't get you far at all in Unity. If I were you I'd get the game on PS4 or Xbox.
Depending on your budget there will be plenty of good stuff for you.

And what makes you so sure I have any interest in console gaming? I am going to be moving to a Broadwell Xeon and a high-end GPU early next year anyways, so moving to console gaming in the meanwhile would be absolutely pointless and an unnecessary expense, plus I don't find consoles enjoyable. Not at all.I always find it funny how some people on the forums like to give advice, without even trying to extract some more information from the person they're having a conversation with in order to be able to give a proper advice. You heard I'm running a 6870 and you immediately pointed me to consoles. Why? There is no rationale for this reaction of yours. Plus I was not asking for advice. I was trying to start a conversation about vram usage with people.

I never claimed a low-level API could 4x the performance. You must be confusing with someone else.

John Carmack said last year that consoles have double the efficiency of PCs. Reaching console performance on a PC would require double the horsepower. And that's more or less true. Of course this would vary greatly from game to game depending on the optimization effort that has been put into different platforms and when in the console cycle we are actually being. I would give an example with the last generation - a 6800 Ultra outmatched the Xbox 360 back in 05 in both performance and image quality. However that same 6800 Ultra can't outmatch the Xbox 360 in 2013. A GTX 980 right now might be top of the line and could wipe the floor with the piss poor consoles, however it would definitely not match/surpass their performance and image quality in games from 2020/21 given that this generation lasts that long of course.

It would be excellent for both AC4 and Unity. AC4 is not hard to run. An R9 290 would is more than plenty.

Although I'm kind of an AMD guy when it comes to GPUs, I would strongly discourage you from getting an R9 290. The new GTX 900 series just dropped yesterday and they have exceptional performance for a very low price. The GTX 970 for example is 329 USD, and can run circles around the AMD cards. It's kind of a dry season for AMD now because they need time in order to respond to Nvidia's offerings plus they haven't lowered the prices of their existing products, so in this particular moment Nvidia is the way to, no question about that. Take a look at this:
http://tpucdn.com/reviews/EVGA/GTX_970_SC_ACX_Cooler/images/watchdogs_1920_1080.gif http://tpucdn.com/reviews/EVGA/GTX_970_SC_ACX_Cooler/images/farcry3_1920_1080.gif

Also don't forget that Ubisoft has a partnership with Nvidia and they bring some exclusive features like TXAA, PhysX, different GameWorks libraries like HairWorks and stuff like that. A new addition to Far Cry 4 would be PCSS, which is new type of soft shadows.

EDIT: The two topics merged, and apparently I misread and I thought you were planning to get that pc, but apparently you already have it. So yeah, this post is pretty much a pointless read for you, but nevertheless I'm gonna leave it be, for the people who are planning to buy new GPUs for ACU.

John Carmack said last year that consoles have double the efficiency of PCs. Reaching console performance on a PC would require double the horsepower. And that's more or less true.

No, it's not. John Carmack made that statement more than 2 years ago reffering to the DX9 library, which created a multi-layered "wall" between the machine operations' and the actual code. He was in fact comparing a PS3 to the popular PC trends in gaming during 2011. DX11 (and the soon-to-be DX12) are based on a different approach, which greatly reduces the theoritical distance between a High level API and the machine.

But, even with DX9 in mind, you cannot take Carmack's word for granted. The guy was obviously exaggerating. No matter the complexity of the API, it's impossible to double the performance by optimising software alone.

For anyone worried about playing ACU on PC I would recommend using common sense when predicting the specs. It will probably but not definitely use similar specs if not higher as Watchdogs so if you can run Watchdogs in Ultra then you're probably in luck.

I've just ordered an i7 4790k 4.0Ghz with 16GB RAM and a brand new GTX 980 4GB. I would hazard a guess this will run ACU no problem admittedly a PS4 would have been cheaper but I didn't see the point in buying one just to play ACU. Maybe if more games get released on PS4 that are worth playing I'll get one but until then my new PC will do nicely.

You're talking about a different tweet. The one I'm referencing is actually from 2013. Either way he does say basically the same thing, as he did in 2011. Here are the two tweets.

https://twitter.com/ID_AA_Carmack/status/436012673243693056

But I wasn't talking about low level APIs. I was taking your statements as is and in general. Of course low level APIs (like Mantle and DX12) address that issue of hardware efficiency, primarily (among other things) by focusing on reducing CPU overhead.

Well, it depends on your definition of ''run''. Like, what do you mean? 30-40 frames with 1080p at max settings? 50-60 frames with 900p at medium settings?

With your current rig, you should be able to run AC:IV at 30-40 frames with 1080p at medium/high settings. I'm using AC:IV as an example because the devs said that Unity will run about the same.

---------------------

Regarding your PC specs, I would drop the CPU for an i5 4690k and use the remaining money to upgrade your GPU to a GTX 760 2gb instead.

I can't find where they said it, but they did.

The reason why AC:IV is so demanding are because of the massive vegetation in the areas. You can easily get high FPS in places/locations/cities like Havana, but jump into a plantation/jungle/island and your FPS takes a huge drop. Or at least that's my theory.

I don't think Unity's optimization will be better, but the vegetation is certainly at a minimal. However, I'm expecting our FPS to drop greatly when it comes to large crowds. I'm already calling it.

I did notice that. My FPS is great on the open ocean and havana but in Kingston and some islands yeah pretty bad. In fact, the vegetation in ACUnity is kinda extremely ****ty to begin with so it likely won't be a problem. I mean, they haystacks literally look like the ones in AC2.

They said that the NPC crowds won't be as FPS devouring as you may think they would be since they spread out the resources in a way that makes like 100 npcs near you high quality and then dynamically decreases the poly count and animation complexity of the NPCs as they get farther away, but you don't notice it.

That being said, I am still sure that the large crowds will have SOME effect on the performance.

Honestly, I don't think Unity's graphics will be as revolutionary as AC:3's was, especially after the latest trailers which downgrades are very apparent. But it will still be a pretty game, no doubt. The haystacks do need some improvements... After 6 games, I'd expect the revamp to have some realistic effects or particle rebounds, but it looks just as unrealistic as it usually have. Even the hays are floating above the barrel in more than one video.

According to the video, the crowds strain too much on the performance (about 5-10 frames). Hopefully it stays that way and doesn't become AC:IV's vegetation in the final product.

I've been noticing a trend in modern games that priority is not given to the amount of detail in objects and the quality of the textures, but rather to accurate lighting, particle effects, etc.And there's nothing wrong with that. If you've played the effects cave demo of UE4 you would know bad the textures were, but the pretty effects make up for it. That said, I don't like my games having low quality objects and textures. It's too early to judge because we're all looking at compressed videos but, to me personally the quality of NPCs is just horrendously low. That's understandable of course given how many there are on screen. The water effects and reflections on the ground certainly look stellar though.

Nope, multiplayer is gone. Only co-op, and it's not LAN co-op, it's online co-op. For him to play with his brother, they would both need to have uplay accounts with Unity on them. That would mean 2 games. and unless he is willing to buy 2 games just for a co-op mission, good for him, but it would be less pricey if they did turns.

Well, how old is your card?

At 900p, I believe medium with FXAA and some settings like god-rays turned off should give you an average of 30fps. You may have to settle for a mix between low and medium settings if you don't want it to drop below 30 frames. If it was any other publisher, medium settings should suffice at even 1080p, but Ubisoft has a habit of inconsistent fps. I remember jumping between 40 and 18 frames during AC:IV's launch. ...It was rough. :p

to be honest his question is somehow vague, he didnt mention anything about online nor co-op, he is asking about saving slots as far as i understood by saying multiple sessions, consequently, he doesnt need to buy 2 copies, all AC games have 3 save slots and i expect this one to follow the same pattern, so each one can have his own save slot (session) and play on the same account.

on the other hand, we can interpret it the same way you described and that would make what you said is true, so you have it there :)

If you can run AC:IV in high settings, you should be able to run Unity in medium/high settings.

What I like to do is use AC:IV's places with lots of vegetation such as islands or jungles as an example of Unity's performance. It may not be accurate, but those places are the most demanding and according to the devs, AC:U will run about the same as AC:IV, so.

Hey all,

Just a quick question here, is all. ACIV ran, well...let's just say it didn't do as well as I thought it should've. I've got a GTX 780 Ti, an Intel i7 4770K OC'd to 4.2GHz, and 16GB of RAM at 1866MHz. And my game drive is a 480GB SSD from Crucial. So I don't think my PC should be a problem, yet on the settings that GeForce Experience recommends, I'm usually sitting somewhere between 30-50 fps. Admittedly, I am running the game at 1440p. But still, I'd figure it should be running better than that. Anyway, now that all this background is out of the way, I'll move on to the actual issue.

Do we know if AC: Unity will run better than Black Flag did, or will it have the same really horrible optimization? Also, did/will Ubi fix the flickering that plagued ACIV unless you used V-Sync?

Yeah. I mean, with my system, I figure I should be able to push it max settings, 60fps + easy. But apparently, this is not the case. Thus, I'm curious. Also, if anyone has any information as to whether I should be able to do that or not, or if there's settings I could/should change in Black Flag to improve my fps, that'd all be appreciated. Thanks.

It's because your computer has gone into the 'power saving' mode while unplugged, which is common among laptops and will definitely affect overall performance.

Well at least you get the game to run on a 840M.

well honestly i dont trust Geforce experience, its better to tweak the graphics settings yourself, in ACBF specifically, some settings can degrade performance massively like Physx, if you can post your in-game graphics settings so we can help you tweak them up to get higher FPS, but one thing i can recommend blindly is to set physx to low if it has not been already set to that.

Don't you think the devs are getting a bit late into releasing the System Requirements, Mr_Shade? The game releases in 6 weeks and we don't have official requirements yet. Unless they want to delay AC (again for the 7th time) on the PC and so, they should announce the delay already.

True. People with high-end PCs don't have trouble pre ordering AC Unity, but people like me and most of the players here have medium power PCs, and we want to know if unity will work or not on our pc. When requirements are released, there will be a lot more pre orders.

How much more FPS I'll get with a SSD instead of a HDD?

You won't be getting any more FPS. You will just avoid the occasional hiccups of the framerate while running around the world, due to the faster loading.
