Is there a thread about this anywhere? I just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas what the requirements would be.
I wanted to figure out how much I will need to upgrade my computer.

sorry if this is a repeat, I couldn't find anything current in the search.

ya that was my guess, I have Oblivion, but have to run it at low resolutions, so I figure that I will need to up my video card (from 256), and maybe even my ram.
well, thanks for the input.

Again, this is too early to tell. We're too many months early of the game's planned launch (which will likely be delayed regardless), and so the devs will likely reveal the specs (although I doubt they're even finalized yet) at the last minute.

Well jujing by the screenshots I would say it needs:
3,5GB procesor
512mb video card on PCI expres
1-2GB RAM
and it wil use up to 5-6GB of HARD disk
But still it's just my gues.
(hope I'm wright http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif)

I think that system will handle Assassins Creed at maxed out settings IoNoobMaster... or at least I hope.

I mean I just rigged my PC with a dual core 4200+ CPU (its like 4.2Ghz CPU), an ATi X1900XTX (which is 512Mb) and 2 Gigs of RAM. If I couldnt run AC at maxed out settings, Im gonna be really pissed! I spent a fortune on my new PC, and I expect next gen games such as AC to work with no slowdowns whatsoever.

PCs are expensive to rig, but if once you spend a good amount on one, the graphics quality of the games you play on it will beat the living daylights out of any console out there! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's too early. But we will find out before the game is out, so don't worry about it.
Although I know for sure that I am going to need a new PC just to play this game.

I bought a new pc like 8/9 months ago, at that time I had all 3 PoP games on ps2 because my pc was too bad before. The only problem for me might be my processor (3 ghz) and ram (1 gb). But I will upgrade my ram soon I think.

A safe bet would be to get one of the best computer out NOW (I.E. 2 X Xeon-3,4ghz, 2gig ram, 512mb videocard), and it might ended up to be the specs of AC at release, again like OH_DragonBoy said earlier, if it's not delayed.

Guessing the specs would be like guessing what the standard technology is going to be in a year or so... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif Pick a console instead... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I don't think Processers are much involved in gaming, believe it or not, I still run my PC on a 1.7 ghz processor and I have no problem, well, at least not yet. I can run Blood Money at high quality, and some other good games.

The two important parts in a gaming PC are the graphics card and the RAM. I have a 256 graphics card and 1GB RAM. I believe I can run AC on minimum specs...or maybe medium...

if ur comp can run Oblivion, it can probably run this game.

Honestly, it probably won't be that much. I'd guess it will be similar to Chaos Theory in comparison to other games coming out at that time. Just a guess:

2.4 GHz CPU
1GB of RAM
128 MB DirectX 9 Graphics Card (GeForce 6800 or Radeon X800 card or higher)
5GB Disk Space

If you can run Oblivion well on medium-high settings, you'll probably be running this fine on high settings. Could be wrong, but that's what I'd assume.

He's working on the project and he signed up 26 days ago?

I'm new to these forums, so if he's a known Ubi dev, then I apologise, but unless he's a newbie to Ubisost then I'd have trouble believing he finally got around to making an account on Ubi.com 26 days ago.

And I just really don't see AC having any higher requirements than Oblivion. I mean, the graphics really are amazing, but...I just don't see them being a problem at all for someone with a decent computer. I'd imagine someone with 1.5 GB of RAM, a 3GHz CPU and an X1800XT running this silky smooth (60 FPS+) at 1280x1024 with 4xAA and 8xAF.

yeah im not so hot with computers since i never play games on my computer...well i have but they are games from the 90's...classic adventure games that take up no space at all...im strictly console only so i wouldnt know, but shouldnt this take up lots more than oblivion besides the graphics? i mean having the continous travel throughout 3 cities without loading (my speculation, i dont know if it is loading free, but i wll assume it is) and having the thousands of NPC's with their own AI individually running all at once should really take a lot more than oblivion since all AI basically had their own linear paths...also the developers all talk about how they just create the buildings and the specialized engine running the game is reading every inch of the world during the game and specifying if it is interactive...yeah that happens in game so they dont have to map it out before hand...so i would imagine it would take more than oblivion

Well, most developers who ever become a part of the community do so early on.

One thing I'd like to know, though, is are you saying "more than Oblivion" from actual knowledge of how much horsepower the engine needs, or just a guess at how much it'll need? Because, yes, this game (I think) doesn't have loading times and stuff, but the reason Oblivion was so punishing on almost every system was because of just how much stuff it had to do. With around 16 square miles of land to explore, and all the different people your CPU had to deal with, it takes a beefy computer to keep up. And, again, while the graphics in AC are beautiful, and I'm sure the crowds do tax your CPU quite a bit, I just don't see it being at the same level as Oblivion. Hey, I could be wrong, that's just what I think.

Where have you got this info from, is this your personal opinion?
Are you working in the videogame industry?
If so, please do a little test at your company on how many people are active registered users of the forums of their game/company.
I'd say that not even 15% of the peeps working at a major studio, for example Ubisoft, are active registered members on forums.
So your "most developers who ever become a part of the community do so early on" theory is, in my op, bullcrap!
One thing though, I don€t care that you believe me or not! You can think what ever you want and that€s the beauty of the thing! Thanks Forums http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Regarding Oblivion now:

As per Legendary_111, gameplay footage is hitting the web after X06. Therefore, pick two screens of Oblivion and AC and compare the graphics.
Day and Night in my opinion!
I have Oblivion on my X360 and I play AC everyday, plus as a passionate videogame player since my young age: I HAVE NEVER SEEN A GAME LOOKING THAT GOOD!
A whole lot more details and quality environment, no low-rez look that can be spotted, here and there, in Oblivion. That€s kind of rough on a system!
AI in Oblivion is miles away from what you can expect in AC, again, rough on a computer. Don€t think that AC is a 100 square meter game€¦ So why would it require less than a game that already hit the market months ago€¦?!

Have a look at Legendary_111€s post (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/5271063484) when he got back from IGDA€s meeting last week and see how enthusiasm he is with some 8 months old videos, originally shown at GDC. I€m sorry but this is the new-gen of game here!!! Nothing to do with last-gen games and first next-gen ones! I guess Jade was clear enough on that point all the way through the process.

Again, I respect your opinion. I personally think that GRAW is better looking than Oblivion, since I€m more of a graphics and realism oriented person. I€m not asking anyone to share this personal point of view€¦ Gamespot do share my point of view about this and that€s enough for me!

GRAW graphics won a 10 on Gamespot (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/tomclancysghostrecon3/review.html)

Oblivion's graphics won a 9 Gamespot (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/theelderscrollsivoblivion/review.html)

Just to make sure I don€t get flame by anyone. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

Personal opinion from seeing actual devs in their communities.

I wasn't saying that a LOT of devs do it, anyway. Most devs don't. I just said that most of the people who WOULD actually do it do it earlier rather than later. If you do work for Ubisoft and only recently joined, then I would 100% believe you. But if you've been with them for a while, I just don't see why you'd suddenly decide "Hey, I'm going to make an account on Ubi.com!" I'm willing to take your word for it that you're an Ubi dev, but I was just stating my confusion at a dev who actually did decide to be a part of the community doing so at this time.

I agree with you, the graphics are better. Honestly, I don't think Oblivion has THAT great of graphics, but that's not really the point here. The point is how taxing the engine is on a computer. For instance, I personally think FEAR looks much better than Oblivion. However, I get good framerates in FEAR with almost max graphics on a resolution of 1024x768 (it wouldn't let me make it any higher). In Oblivion, even on the same resolution (I ussually play games in 1280x1024, but I first played Oblivion at 1024x768), I was getting around 20-25 FPS outside before I made any optimizations. Why? Because the engine was programmed differently. It was probably not as well optimized, and had to deal with a lot of things FEAR didn't.

You're almost acting like I'm trying to put down Assassin's Creed. I'm not. Matter of fact, I'm pretty much complimenting it and the people making it. I'm saying it's probably going to have a lower minimum requirements than Oblivion, which would be a very good thing. Again, I could be wrong, but in my opinion it looks like it would be less taxing on a system than Oblivion.

BTW, might I ask your role in Ubisoft? I'm planning on becoming a concept artist for video games, and if you were an artist just wanted to ask you a few questions.

Personal opinion from seeing actual devs in their communities.

I wasn't saying that a LOT of devs do it, anyway. Most devs don't. I just said that most of the people who WOULD actually do it do it earlier rather than later. If you do work for Ubisoft and only recently joined, then I would 100% believe you. But if you've been with them for a while, I just don't see why you'd suddenly decide "Hey, I'm going to make an account on Ubi.com!" I'm willing to take your word for it that you're an Ubi dev, but I was just stating my confusion at a dev who actually did decide to be a part of the community doing so at this time.

I€m not that new at Ubisoft. I€ve been checking the forums of AC for quite a while before I first post a topic that offers members more information in a total legal way.
You understand that I€m not allowed in any way to give any hint about this game I€m working on.
I got on AC for the production phase. I was not in the conception and pre-prod phase of the game, therefore, not on this project for 2 years or so like many artists on this project.

Ubisoft already volunteered the information that the game is using a brand new in-house engine that offers a lot of possibilities. A next-gen game engine.
I not too much of a tech wiz but this might have an effect on the standard requirement of a game like AC?
We both agree that this game is more kick *** graphically and the AI is very interesting.
Therefore, all the aspect point toward a higher standard requirement then the current next-gen games, in my op! Again, I respect yours on all points!

First, let me apologize if I, in any way, pretend that you were downgrading AC€s content. I€m not quit sure how but that was certainly not my goal.
I hope as much peoples as possible can play this game as well. Again all I was saying was that I personally think that it would require more than actual games.
Plus most of my posts were short saying only:€ more than Oblivion€.

The beauty about this is that, we€ll only know at release so no need to flame each other for that.

I am a 3d modeler, working on the architectural elements of the game.

I€d be pleased to answer your questions, the best I can, regarding the industry at large, so feel free to PM me with your questions since this is not too much the purpose of this forum. You might found some answers at another topic I participated. Click me (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/4011065974)

My posts are going to be rarer as this is getting out of proportion. I get quote saying stuff and some people take my position on the project as a selling argument.
I came to the forum as a spectator to get you guys€ point of view and concerns, then one day I decided to post something that some members might found interesting. Since then, I post more frequently on all sorts of topics.
I have been chatting with UbiRazz, outside of the forum, for quite a while and he wouldn€t let any imposter pretend they€re working at Ubisoft posting over and over in his forums!

I'm sorry if I at all offended you in my questioning of the truth in whether you worked for Ubisoft or not. I just found it odd that someone who would bother to join the forums (which I commend you for) would do it so late. I hope you can see where I was coming from, being new to this forum myself.

OK, I'll just go ahead and again give you the benefit of the doubt that the game will have a slightly higher minimum requirement than Obliivon. I'm just going by screenshots, videos, and my own personal experience with computers, and my opinion from those would be that it would be at least slightly less demanding than Oblivion. But hey, you're the game developer, not me.

I'm sorry if I seemed to look too much into what you said, and I wouldn't want to "scare you off" by trying to twist what you're saying. I just first didn't know if you actually were a dev, and didn't think that AC would have higher requirements than Oblivion.

I€m an artist modeler and do not participate in the dev of the engine. This is not my field of action.

I've never heard of a PC processor with more than 2MB cache and you specify 3.5GB

No doubt the requirements will be high (probably cheaper to get a PS3 than a PC that runs it perfectly).

And the fact the game will come for the PS3 makes me think it won't come out before the console does in Europe (delayed to March 2007).

I personally think that there we have to think just in a word: optimization.
In the last year I have seen a lot of games that get out to shops practically without get finished to drown users later with tons of patches...

If Ubi release AC well finished, with full dual core support and a clean and optimized code, it will fall down the sys reqs.

well, this is all well and good right. But so far NOTHING has told me that its on PC. there has been countless forum topics of "Will it be on PC?" "AC = PC?"
also, I would just like to say, that even though I got a new computer JUST for oblivion when it came out, oblivion was made poorly, sure it is a fantastic game with great Gfx, MOST computers at the time found it hard to run, low-medium is most of what I know of.
Assassins Creed is looking breath taking right now, but even so, the specs to run oblivion on medium-low should be enough to run this on medium-low.
the CPU is going to be a major factor with the AI.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I can run Oblivion at max on my PC which isn't exactly amazing and over 3 years old (before new gfx card + more ram!)
AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (2.2GHz)
X1600 Pro (512MB) AGP
2 Gb DDR RAM

I don't expect to run AC at max settings, but if it can run it well at medium settings I'll be content.

CPU power doesn't seem to be as much of an influence as to what your PC can run as it used to be 4-5 years ago when AMD & Intel were going at each other to get the fastest chip speeds. Now with Intel going Core Duo the speed of the chips has fallen significantly. While performance may be better for tasks that can use the new architecture, are games designers going to write specifically for it when they know most people don't have it?

I have a question about the NPC's:

Are all of the NPC's permanently around with their houses and stuff like Oblivion?
Or are they just nameless people that walk around, then disappear when you lose sight of them, to be replaced by more which spawn later? Like in Grand Theft Auto (except with much better AI obviously).

If it's like Oblivion with the NPC's then it would probably be a lot harder to run, but if it's like Grand Theft Auto it will be easier to run, but still pretty hard, because of all of the characters on-screen, even if they are just randomly generated.

Hopefully if they do just randomly appear it won't be like The Godfather, where cars and people appear out of the blue a few meters away, even though the game appears to have really good draw distance.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

This Game Has Amazing Graphics, i think that the graphics are similar to Call Of Juarez,
But i would say that the minimum sys. requirements would be: P4 3.0ghz or Amd Athlon 3000mhz - 1.5Ram - Video Card: GeForce 7300GT or Ati x1800. And the recommended sys. req.:
Intel Core Duo 4.0ghz or Amd Athlon 4000mhz - 2.5 ram - Video Card: GeForce 7800GT or Ati x1900.

Supported Video Cards:
GeForce - 7300GT/7500/7600/7800/7900/8800
Ati - x1700/x1800/x1900/x1950

The recommended CPU will be any dual core I think. This game will probably have same (or better) system requirements as Crysis. Crysis system requirements are:

Minimum Requirements

CPU: Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8ghz
Graphics: Nvidia 6600/X800GTO (SM 2.0)
RAM: 768Mb/1Gb on Windows Vista
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 256k+
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP


Recommended Requirements

CPU: Dual-core CPU (Athlon X2/Pentium D)
Graphics: Nvidia 7800GTX/ATI X1800XT (SM 3.0) or DX10 equivalent
RAM: 1.5Gb
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 512k+ (128k+ upstream)
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX10 with Windows Vista

AC will probably be less demanding on GFX card and more demanding on CPU. Since it seems as AC will have an insane AI. (Better AI than Crysis obviously)

Hmm...how much is the market price of geforce 7600 AGP?If the price takes around 80 or 90 bucks,then i'm going to get it.

Prices range from around 60-100 here, so the price will be pretty much the same in US dollars knowing how expensive things are here. I'd say wait a little longer though, ATI are supposedly bringing out a new card, so nVidia will have to make a card to rival that, and older cards will drop in price http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think in stores that card costs more than 100 dollars, but on ebay you can get it cheap. i was running on nvidias too but now i switched to radeons. there seems to be more of them.

i guess ive always chosen nvidia cards because of tradition and nothing else, so i might start finding out about radeons.

I heard somewhere that nvidia cards performed better with open, brighter games (eg far cry, assassins creed?? etc) whereas radeon cards are better with darker, cramped games (eg doom3 quake 4 etc)

is there any truth in that?

To an extent, I guess. nvidia cards provide a faster framerate but Radeon cards provide an overall better image quality.

wcyee26 i live in uruguay, and a 7600GS Costs 220 bucks, for me, thats a lot of money. In the USA you can get a better card for that money, even, there are a Few Xbox's360 for less than $200. I will Probably buy a GeForce 7300GT and 1gb Ram, so i will get Ram: 1.5.
People, look, you say that because it's a Next-gen Game it would ask you a SUPER VIDEOCARD, i think it will, but dont expect a ULTIMATE GeForce or a Ultimate ATI.
I Think it Will supported:
GeForce 7300GT/7600/7800/7900/8600/8800.
Ati x1600/x1700/x1800/x1900Series.
Minimum:
VideoCard: Geforce 7300GT/Ati x1600
Ram: 1GB
CPU: P4 3.0GHz/AMD Athlon (with equivalent GHz)

THE VIDEO CARD MUST HAVE SHARED MODEL 3.0 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

For those of you stuck with AGP boards and don't want to replace your mobo, ATI recently released an AGP version of the X1950XT. I'm 99% positive the X1950XT will run Assassin's Creed maxed with AA/AF. It benches at only about 15~ FPS lower than the 8800GTS 320MB on most games, making it a no brainer for anyone looking for the best they can get with AGP. The only problem may be size for those of you with smaller cases.
The card. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814241049)

As for CPUs, the game is guaranteed to run on any current dual-core CPU, starting at AMD's X2 3600+, and Intels E6300. For those of you with single core CPUs, it should run fine on anything above 3GHz, I assume.

RAM shouldn't be too much of an issue. The game seems to be focused on a level based design, as opposed to an open-ended world, so 1GB should be sufficient. 2GB will likely be optional.

By the way - I really don't recommend buying components off of eBay, especially GPUs. With the amount of possible problems, it's nothing but a headache if you end up needing to RMA. That's not even taking into consideration the regularity of receiving a GPU DOA. The few extra bucks are worth the peace of mind.

Well you guys have to assume that Ubisoft will want the majority of the people out there to be able to run and play the game. So i think that although the requirements are going to be high, I think that you will be able to play the game on minimum settings with a 3 gig processor, 1 gig of Ram, and 256 graphics card. Of course if you want your game to look as nice as the screenshots then be prepared to upgrade your pc. I was just wondering will it be able to run on XP or will it require Vista?

Just letting you know, if you are gonna make a statement about computer specs, atleast give real ones... There is no such thing as a Core 2 Duo 4GHz processor, and the same goes for AMD. The BEST two processors out right now are the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 @ 2.93 GHz and the Intel Core 2 Extreme X6700 @ 2.66 GHz (Quad Core).

All I'm saying is to make sure you get your facts straight before you post something.

Now for my opinion: This game will probably have a DX9 and DX10 mode. The DX10 mode will look amazing if you have the right setup and the DX9 mode will still look pretty good. Seeing as how some recent games are, the devs will probably make this game scale forward and backward 2-3 years meaning it can be run on really low settings and really high settings. I am really looking forward to this game. =)

If it doesn't, Ubisoft would be making a HUGE mistake. I'm sure that's why the PC version doesn't have a tentative release date yet. They're probably making it runable (is that a word?) on both Vista and XP.

well i know for almost fact that AC will ONLY run in vista. Halo2 was released a while ago (i think) and required vista i very much doubt AC will work on XP or lower. and for sure its going to require DirectX 10, and DirectX10 is only available on Vista.

The Defense Rests its case...http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

and so i dont have to create a whole new topic...do you think the PC version of AC will be released before during or after the release of PS3 and Xbox360. i wouldve thought it would be released on PC in mid-2008...as PC gaming has become less popoular and the world is leaning more to console.

You have a point with Halo 2 but I think it will be released at the same time. The consoles are better now because they were just released. In a year or two after PC's have a few updates they will be way better then the consoles. The PC will never die. End of Story.

randman2007
05-14-2007, 10:38 AM
Agreed, the PC will NEVER die... however... I do think they'll release the PC version a little later (maybe even up to six months or more) than the console versions.

Why do I think this? If you go to gamestop.com or amazon.com or bestbuy.com or anywhere else to place a pre-order, they have a listing already for a scheduled release for the XBox, the PS3 and the DS... but not the poor PC.

I friggin love PC gaming. Most console people don't know what they're missing. Unfortunately, I think we'll know exactly what we're missing when AC comes out for them before it comes out for us.

Sad face...

peace2acorn
05-14-2007, 04:32 PM
One benefit us PC gamers have, besides always being able to upgrade and stuff, is that when games come out for PC after consoles, often times many improvements are made for the PC version. Take Lost Planet for example. When it comes out for PC, it will have more features and improved shaders, geometry and models. Hopefully they do this with AC.

Ya your CPU should be fine

i would estimate that these are minimum requirements...(guessing)

P4 2.8 ghz or athlon 64 equal
1 gb ram A(512 mb mabye)
256 mb Dx9.0c acellerated card (Ati radeon 1k seriesor geforce 7 series)

......thts what i would estimate and recommended would probably be around

Intel core 2 duo @ 2.4 ghz or athlon 64 X2 equal
2gb ram
geforce 8800 series or Radeon x2900 series (SM 3.0) or Dx10 equal

....either way i would really recommend that you have a dual core processor to run it.....but these are just my estimations based on my past experience....

Direct X 10
PCI-E

it cost around AU$250 and has the same performance as a 7900 gs OC...it also supports Dx10 for superior graphics quality...also.. i would have a dual core PC w/ at least 1gb ram to make it stable (on vista. u will need a dual core CPU as a single core CPU will become bottlenecked on Dx10 w/ vista (8600GT)so what are ur Specs?

Ya your CPU should be fine

i would estimate that these are minimum requirements...(guessing)

P4 2.8 ghz or athlon 64 equal
1 gb ram A(512 mb mabye)
256 mb Dx9.0c acellerated card (Ati radeon 1k seriesor geforce 7 series)

......thts what i would estimate and recommended would probably be around

Intel core 2 duo @ 2.4 ghz or athlon 64 X2 equal
2gb ram
geforce 8800 series or Radeon x2900 series (SM 3.0) or Dx10 equal

....either way i would really recommend that you have a dual core processor to run it.....but these are just my estimations based on my past experience.... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
No way the recommended would be 8800GTS.
XBOX360 and PS3 got worse graphic drivers, I think PS3 has 7800GTX. Recommended will probably be somewhere around 7800GT - which is extremely high.

But recommended @ the DX10 series? nah.. you have any idea how powerful card like 7950GTX 512 is?

i read a review stating that the 6800 GS XXX got 41 fps on doom3 high 1280 x 1024 and the XFX 7900 GT XXX got 89 fps high 1280 x 1024 so in theory you would say it's around twice the power of the 6800 Series which is the recommended series for oblivion..also the 7900 gt XXX doesn't seem to drop Frames as you go up resolutions as much.

I would say around Oblivion requirements.

I have:

2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo Processor

ATi Radeon x1900 Graphics Card

250 GB Hard Drive

2GB of RAM

That can run Oblivion on Ultra-High, so if anyone is looking for a good system, try that.

LOL omg, just abit of over kill there dude, but here PC gamers are all out for overkill, ie. in a RTS why defeat your enemy with some super weapon when you can walk over his face by showing you have 1 billion times the units then him!
OVER KILL IS THE WAY TO GO, that way not even the smallest little thing will even remotely be around to try to attack you later!

I am still back in the single core era, but i can run oblivion Ultra-High, at 1280x1024 HDR and everything so i think the only place i could have a problem with AC is maybe in the AI department because i have only a 3.6ghz P4... very sad, i need some extreme over clocking here maybe to 4.0ghz if im lucky without too much smoke and burning smells!

THESE ARE THE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR ASSASSINS CREED THAT ARE 80%(percent) OR MORE CORRECT:
MINIMUM:
1GB RAM
6GB SPACE
3GHZ PROCESSOR
256MB VIDEO CARD
RECOMENDED
1,5-2GB OF RAM (medium or high)
6GB SPACE
3,5-4GHZ PROCESSOR (medium of high)
512MB VIDEO CARD

Its compared with requirements of other newer ubisoft games and some older but considering the requirements of the time,and the tehnology used.I doubt youl need more than that to run AC

my specs are
2GB OF RAM
DUAL CORE PROCESSOR,EQUIVALENT TO 4GHZ
256MB VIDEO CARD
250GB OF SPACE

I believe il run AC but i will upgrade my specs to run it on high.
THIS IS ACURATE!Ive played games since i was 5 year old and know what is needed for what.

It's offline. I'm not sure about the physics card that you're talking about but I doubt AC will require it since that card isn't out yet.

davo81
06-21-2007, 11:38 PM
Still AC probably won't require a physics card as barely anyone has physics cards...so what do ubi expect everyone to go out and buy a $300 physics card that will only benifit AC and a few other games...

remember games can be modded to run on really pathetic comps...

Also next gen engines are more efficent than previous gen's... Lost planet ran very well on my comp even when there was 30 enemies or more...

And i wouldn't expect the game to fuction 100% well on it's release it's most likely that it will be patched to fix memory leaks etc

No, you should buy a starter kit, it's much cheaper this way. They have the case, fans, brakets, motherboard, power supply and little bits etc. cost around $999 for:

E6320 1.8 ghz duel core (4mb L2 cache)
550W power supply
2 gb ddr2-667
DVD multi drive (18x)
250 gb HDD (7,200 RPM 16mb buffer)
GA-VM900M Mainboard ( a good high end mobo with quad core capibiities)
19" 2MS 1280 x 1024 LCD Monitor
2.1 Speakers w/ subwoofer
Basic sound card

Add $1000 for graphics card n Better cpu and it will cost $2000...or you could just buy a pre built custom comp that would have better value etc

My new PC is gunna be built like this but more from scratch.

Sigh, please don't mistake the memory size of video cards as the deciding factor in being able to run games. If that logic was correct, I'd be able to use my old 5900 Ultra sitting in my closet for the past couple years to run this game (hey, it has 256mb). More important is the clock speeds and the technology SUPPORTED by the card. If it requires a dx 9.0 capable card, its gonna be a too bad if you're on something on or lower than ATI 9250, or aren't on at least the 6xxx series for Nvidia. If the game decides to require SM3.0 like Vegas did, you MUST have a 6 series Nvidia, or AT LEAST an x1300 ATI card in order to run the game.

While it IS true that proc clocks DONT typically affect the gameplay much, when they begin upping the amount of AI present on-screen at the same time, you WILL need a better proc.

For those of you stating you're running 7900s on your 300w PSU, to be honest, I'm shocked it's still working; but hey, if it does, then more power to you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif .

Memory is also going to be crucial for this game. If you do NOT have at least 1GB, you're going to suffer(I'm talking unplayable), if the game will even run, period.

And that's only if the game will be released on PC. At this point, it's all speculation since we've been given no recent word on the PC's port status.

Remember, we're in the times of DX10 now, not DX9 anymore. Don't hope you can play it on high without a DX10 video-card.

I hope I can play it nice and smooth with:
- AMD 4600 X2 (2x2,4 Ghz)
- 1.5gb RAM
- Nvidia 8600GT (which was 256MB I think)

I live in the Netherlands, so I just import one cheaply from Germany http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif It's about 60% of the prices we have here. I can get that system above for about €450. And that prices will lower when ATI intoduces their new DX10 cards.

Now, I'm stuck with a 2.4Ghz (single-core) processor, 512MB RAM and an ATI 9800SE. I can only play the newest games on low(est) and we're not having DX10 games yet. So, prepare yourself for some high specs!

Well nobody knows what engine AC is using...JR said it was a custom egine built from scratch. All we know at this piont is well practically if it will run or not..we don't know what kind of effects it will use etc.

In any case if it's like other 'next-gen' games it would probably have these features

Dynamic Lighting
HDR
Long view distance (LOD)
Motion blur
Very good Texture and Model details
High end Graphic effects
Particle effects
Next-gen physics system
Direct X 10

ETC....but im just guessing..other next gen games had these features also...and ive never seen a 8800gts run all these sorts of next gen effects at a high resolution with a smooth frame rate...you will probably have to disable some post-process effects like motion blur or dynamic lighting to get a smooth framerate...

Ram has nothing to do with the framerate, thats all on the video card n the CPU. Ram caches data to be used in the game, the graphics card renders it and the CPU processes everything else such as effects physics AI timing and weather ETC.

nova-prim3
07-04-2007, 02:57 AM
more ram won't necessarily increase your framerate, but it will make a massive difference to how smooth the game is. more ram will decrease/eliminate jerks when moving around corners, between sectors, etc.

most games will use so much memory, anything short of that and you will be plauged by the game freezing for split seconds and general smoothness issues. over that the extra ram won't make much difference. how much ram you will need depends on the gfx/performance settings, etc you set and the games requirements (and of course all the stuff you have running in the background). For a modern game I wouldn't suggest anything under 2 gig. Keep in mind to go over ~ 3 gig, you need to be running a 64 bit operating system. Both new Intel and AMD processors support 64bit OS's, even though Intel don't truly provide 64bit.

No your CPU is bottlenecked. it's gunna chuck a fit if you try and touch up the settings on AC or any other next gen game. You should have a dual core cpu for that big graphics card. (BTW the 7950 is the most powerful Dx9 card out there...excluding the 7950 GX2 and GX2L). If u upgrade ur cpu to....some 2ghz or higher dual core cpu then your comp should easily run AC...on Dx9 which wont look as nice as Dx10...still run as good as 8600gts mabye.

chikkenstorm

The DX10 cards now aren't that great for DX10, read this (http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3029&p=6).
But yeah, that CPU isn't that good (why didn't I notice that before?). You'll run it for sure, but if they give Dual Core support (does even one game has this?) you should go for a dual core system. Intel's Dual Cores are great overclockers. So even with a E4300 (1.86GHz) you get a great performance boost, because the E4300 is overclockable 'till about 3GHz and I heard people with watercooling telling they hitted the 4GHz!

Evidently you didn't do very much research, or research on four year old articles, because had you even visited ANY reputable hardware/gaming website, you would know that Intel's budget dualies EASILY STOMP over AMD's chips. Its sad actually considering that a budget Intel can outperform a mid-upper range AMD proc.

And yeah, I might get flamed for double-posting, but oh well.
If you're looking to upgrade to Vista, I'd recommend you look at an 8800 series card. While the 320mb model will run you around $200, you'll find that it is more than capable of handling today's games. As for the proc, I'd choose the E6320 (Intel) because of its relatively low price, only $160, and the increased L2 cache over the smaller models.
Keep in mind that when you upgrade your proc/mobo, you're going to have to buy ddr2 ram, seeing as how ddr went out of standard quite a while ago O:

While it IS true that your comp isn't really top of the line, it most likely won't have too much of a problem running the game. Whoever above me stated that your CPU was the bottleneck isn't really correct either; yeah your computer won't be very efficient at multi-tasking, nor will it be taking advantage of the multi-threaded coding should AC choose to go that route, the CPU shouldn't really have a problem as long as its being dedicated to the game.

lol, no i would never upgrade to vista....games need more ram if ur on vista for a start, it laggs....and there is not much program support for it. for instance...

Crysis minimum needs 768mb ram (1GB on vista)!!!

But yea try upgrading to 2gb ddr2 533 or 667 (675) mabye. and upgrade ur cpu to a e6320 or e6420 if u can afford....but im quite happily OC my E6600 with stock cooling http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

mabye get an intel classic series? they can take vista (i would really only upgrade if u want Dx10) 8gb ram ddr2 800 lol (dont exceed 3.5 gb on XP). they have PCie 16x socket and intel core 2 duo capabilities (e4300, e6300 e6320 e6420 e6600 e6700).

Problem with being an "anti-Vista" activist is the fact that you WILL lose out on DX10 functionality seeing as how Vista will be the ONLY OS to support it. Sure, you can have a dx10 capable card sitting in your computer, but without vista, you lose most of the reason to even own one.

I'm moving out to live by myself with a friend like within few months, and that's not free &gt;.&lt;

But depending on how much money I'll have left/will get, I was thinking about this :

2x 1Gb, SP2-6400, DDR2 800Mhz DIMM 43.40 €
1x Core Duo 2 E6600 2.4GHz, 4MB, FSB1066 Boxed (Conroe) 219.40€
1x FP-IN9 SLI, S775 NF650I SLI DDR2 SATA2 GLAN 8CH 121.00€

From my old computer I'd remove my Graphics card (GF 7950GT 512 MB), hard drive (200G), or maybe buy a new one, and both my dvd drive and the burning one. Then I'd just reinstall my windows, and the computer would be like new, what do ya think? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Personally, I would go with the E6320 as its the same cpu, but at a lower clock (easily fixable through slight OC'ing). Your Mobo is also kind of on the expensive side, but hey. Your GPU is still a VERY nice card to have right now and will last you a while longer still; so unless you're dying to play in Dx10 (which I was http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ), then you'll probably be fine holding off on Vista/8800

Okay so at the moment i have only 1gb corsair ram, and its 533mhz (ddr2). But if i get another 1gb is it safe to get higher mhz or does it have to be the same mhz??
(and my motherboard has a dual channel feature, if that makes any difference?)

You can mix diff clock speeds but by default it will default back to the slowest clock speed (mhz) of ram in ur comp for example:

1x 1gb ddr2 533
1x 1gb ddr2 667

default clock speed = 533

And btw i have vista on my new comp and there is nothing wrong with it...it's just that it's not so much change to XP (which indeems a usless waste of money).

And I totally agree with the vista thing even though i dont have it, i heard it makes you require more ram too.

That's because Vista will be running on the background and Vista requires alot RAM. It was the same when XP came; games required more RAM to play properly.

Yea, and because Vista is poorly programmed....but 2gb of ddr2667 would be plently for this game or crysis....but 4gb ddr2 800 on vista wouldn't costa much more and tat would be nice....http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think it's called DX9.0L or something like that, it's going to be the equivalent of DX10 for XP...in 09 I believe.

But anyway...I think this is going to have the following min. requirements:

P4 3 Ghz

SM 2.0 (possibly 3.0 considering this is Ubi) GFX card

1 GB RAM

4 GB HDD Space

Though...I can't imagine a P4 running this game well considering the sophisticated AI and the fact that there are so many NPC's WITH the sophisticated AI.
