Assassin's Creed Syndicate hits the PC on November 19. While you're waiting for the game to arrive, it might be a good idea to check your system's specs against Ubisoft's suggested requirements. We've condensed them here for easy reference:
|Operating system||Windows 7 SP1 x64
Windows 8.1 x64
Windows 10 x64
|Intel Core i7-3770
|RAM||6GB or more||8GB|
|Graphics card||Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB
AMD Radeon R9 270 2GB
|Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB
Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 4GB
AMD Radeon R9 280X 3GB
|Free hard drive space||50GB|
Most of those specs should be easy to meet for most recent PCs, though Ubi says that "for a recommended experience, the game requires a video card with at least 3GB of VRAM when playing at a full HD resolution." As a result, some GTX 760 owners might find that their cards aren't up to snuff for the recommended configuration at 1080p. 2GB was a much more common memory spec for those cards. Ubi also notes some obvious limitations, like TXAA working only on Nvidia hardware. HBAO+ and PCSS will both work on Radeons and GeForces alike, though.
These specs are actually a bit less demanding overall than the requirements for Assassin's Creed: Unity. That game needed a much beefier graphics card and CPU even for its minimum requirements. Syndicate appears to need only similar specs at the high end while becoming more accessible at the low end. Hopefully this game has a smoother launch than its bug-ridden, unstable predecessor.
