So as with the previous generations, we are starting to see an increase in minimum PC spec requirements for certain games.
ACU (Assassin’s Creed: Unity) has some INSANE min. spec requirements and with this we can see how much power our PCs are going to have to deliver in the next gen games to come.
Here are the min. specs and the recommended specs for ACU:
64-bit operating system
Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 940 @ 3.0 GHz
Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or better
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 (2 GB VRAM)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon R9 290X (3 GB VRAM)
DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers
Hard Drive Space
50 GB available space
Windows-compatible keyboard and mouse required, optional controller
256 kbps or faster broadband connection
Supported Video Cards at Time of Release
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or better, GeForce GTX 700 series; AMD Radeon HD7970 or better, Radeon R9 200 series
Note: Laptop versions of these cards may work but are NOT officially supported.
O_O Crazy, right?
With PC gaming’s minimum requirements getting a boost, that also mean that computer hardware is soon to gain a lot more power for a lot less $$$. 😉
