Ubisoft confirms Watch Dogs actually needs 6GB of RAM on PC

first_imgLast week we reported what I thought to be the actual PC requirements for Watch Dogs. They included a quad-core CPU, 4GB RAM, and a 64-bit version of Windows as a minimum. That’s not surprising seeing as this is a next-gen game launching on PS4 and Xbox one as well.But it turns out the that minimum spec is actually a little too low. The official minimum spec for Watch Dogs pushes the RAM requirement up form 4GB to 6GB with everything else staying pretty much the same.So the minimum and recommended specs for Watch Dogs are as follows:Minimum SpecIntel Core 2 Quad Q8400 (2.66GHz) or AMD Phenom II X4 940 (3GHz)DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB VRAM and Shader Model 5.0 support6GB RAM64-bit Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1), or Windows 8Recommended SpecIntel Core i7 3770 (3.5GHz) or AMD FX-8350 (4GHz)DirectX 11 graphics card with 2GB VRAM and Shader Model 5.0 support8GB RAMSame Windows requirements as minimum specThe hard drive requirement isn’t listed so we’ll stick with the 20GB leaked requirement as a guide. As for official graphics card support, Ubisoft lists the Nvidia GeForce GTX460, GT500, GT600, GT700 and AMD Radeon HD5850, HD6000, HD7000, R7 and R9 series, and also Intel’s Iris Pro HD 5200.If you currently run a 32-bit copy of Windows, then you’ve got some upgrading to do, which no doubt also involves purchasing some more RAM. For some, it may be a case of weighing up the price of a PC upgrade next to the cost of a PS4 or Xbox One. Which comes out cheaper with a copy of the game factored in to the final price?last_img read more

The Cardinals traded away leading rusher Tim Hightower, in a way to make room for the rookie, and he’s expected to pair with Beanie Wells and provide the team with a solid running game, the likes of which they’ve rarely had in the desert. “They opened a pathway for me, and if I don’t perform and if I don’t do what I need to do to get on the field then I’m going to look bad and it’s going to make them look bad too,” Williams said. “So I don’t want anybody looking bad.”In fact, the only ones Williams wants to make look bad are the teams that didn’t draft him. Incidentally, that would be every other team in the league. Good news for the Cardinals, bad for the teams on their schedule.“Just defenses in general, I just want to make them sick that they passed up,” he said. “Me playing football, I always play with a chip on my shoulder, so if you’re an opposing team I’m going to have to try and run my hardest against you.” ArizonaSports.com’s Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this report Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’center_img Top Stories What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Ryan Williams may have been a surprise pick for the Cardinals when they nabbed him with the 38th overall selection back in April’s draft, but once a Cardinal Williams wanted to be just that: a Cardinal.The NFL’s lockout delayed the process, but Williams and the team finally agreed to terms Sunday and now the former Virginia Tech star is, well, pleased to be with his new teammates.“I’m very excited, I feel like a little kid out here,” he said. “Seeing Larry Fitzgerald, [Darnell] Dockett, I mean guys like that, I was watching them, playing with them on games and now I’m with these guys.last_img read more
