To run the PC version of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate fluently in full HD resolution, a video card with at least 3GB of vram is required. Ubisoft recommends a GTX 970 or R9 280X. According to the publisher, the game can handle more than one video card.
On its blog, Ubisoft has announced the minimum and recommended system requirements for the game, which will be released for PC on November 19. In addition to the lists of required hardware, the publisher gives a number of technical tips. To play the game in a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, a video card with 3GB vram is required. In the advanced options of the game, a vram meter will be present so that gamers can adjust the settings according to the available memory.
There is support for Nvidia sli and AMD crossfire setups. According to Ubisoft, performance will scale when using two or more graphics cards. The game can also handle setups of more than one monitor; it is possible to display Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate on three screens in a 3:1 configuration.
When Assassin’s Creed: Unity was released last year, there were a lot of problems with sli setups. The game also struggled with performance issues in other areas. Several patches were needed to make the game playable and eventually Ubisoft offered buyers of the game compensation in the form of free games and DLC. Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate was released for consoles in October. The game does not work flawlessly on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but much better than its predecessor.
