Watch Dogs PC Specifications Leaked

Watch Dogs

The PC Specifications for upcoming Ubisoft game, Watch Dogs, were 'accidentially' released onto the Uplay store.

It was revealed that the game will only support 64-bit operating systems - sorry, 32-bitters. Originally spotted by Neogaf member, the game will require a DirectX 11 GPU with at least 1GB of VRAM accompanied with a quad core CPU and at least 4GB RAM.

Users wanting to aim for the game's recommended settings will require a DirectX 11 card with at least 2GB of VRAM, an eight core CPU and 8GB of RAM. For users to run on Ultra specifications, they will need a DirectX 11 GPU with atleast 2GB of VRAM, an eight core CPU or more and 8GB of RAM Or more. A summary can be found below:

Minimum:

  • 64-bit OS
  • DirectX 11 GPU with at least 1GB of VRAM
  • Quad-core CPU
  • 4GB RAM

Recommended:

  • 64-bit OS
  • DirectX 11 GPU with at least 2GB of VRAM
  • Octa-core CPU (8 cores)
  • 8GB RAM

Ultra:

  • 64-bit OS
  • DirectX 11 GPU with at least 2GB of VRAM
  • Octa-core CPU (8 cores) or more
  • 8GB of RAM or more

 

Judging by these specifications, we are taking a guess that it's a straight port from the next-gen consoles.

"eight core CPU and 8GB of RAM"

Expect this to become almost a requirement, Quad core hyperthreaded will be ok.

I remember when GTA V came out, no mater the GPU it ran like a dog on a dual core CPU as it was coded for 3 cores.
