Assassin's Creed: Syndicate system requirements


Assassin's Creed: Syndicate's system requirements have been revealed, and thankfully they are lower than last year's notoriously hard to run Assassin's Creed: Unity. 

Ubisoft does state that the game will require 3GB of VRAM when running at a full HD 1080p resolution, but has provided a VRAM meter in the games menu's in order to help players select appropriate settings. 


     "For a recommended experience, the game requires a video card with at least 3GB of VRAM when playing at a full HD resolution. While we encourage you to fiddle with the advanced options to fully customize your gaming experience, please keep an eye out for the VRAM meter usage when you adjust these settings."

When compared to last year's Assassin's Creed Unity the recommended GPU requirements have lowered from a GTX 680 or an AMD HD 7970 to a GTX 660 or a R9 270, which is a decent reduction. One thing to note is that both of these GPUs are sub-3GB VRAM GPUs, so perhaps Ubisoft are expecting players to play at 900p or some other resolution when using these GPUs  or that what they call a "full hd resolution" above also means Ultra game settings.  

We also see that the games CPU requirements have also lowered when compared to Assassin's Creed: Unity from a i5 2500K or an FX-8350 to a i5 2400s or a FX-6350, meaning that Ubisoft have either improved the CPU efficiency of the game or have simply worked hard to reduce the number of pedestrians in Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

RAM requirements and HDD storage requirements remain the same in Assassin's Creed Syndicate as it was in Assassin's Creed: Unity.

This game is much better from what my console friends tell me than last year. So hopefully these reductions come in hand with optimizations. From what I have seen on consoles I don't notice a difference in NPC count so that could be a reason, hopefully on PC that's not the case and it really is just better optimization here so it keeps some of the immersivenessQuote
