Is your PC ready for watch dogs?
Written by: wintersun - 17:03 May-26-2014

I just went into GEFORCE's site as I was updating the new nvidia drivers and it recommended this link referred as: Is your PC ready for watch dogs?

http://www.geforce.com/games-applications/pc-games/watch-dogs/gpu-analyzer


I don't know if people with AMD gpus can run it but I think its a nice way to learn. I hope it helps some people here as tomorrow is the launch date!

I don't know if amd has something similar but I believe that medium high settings will be fine for you :)

you should be getting around 50fps avg with high setting according to this http://www.techspot.com/review/827-watch-dogs-benchmarks/page5.html. still there are some people out there with stronger rig yet produce worse result.

I didn't see it somewhere yesterday, but its good to have a playable version of the game rather than having 20fps and shouting like crazy some times :P

but strangely enough is that nvidia experience has no profile for that even with yesterday's update! anyway they will add it later on I think.

well if it's well optimized you might run it on low but thanks for testing :)

I have not checked my fps but the game runs smoothly with high settings and medium textures. I have also tried ultra settings with medium textures but the are some hiccups from time to time. With high textures It still plays smoothly, but when I move fast with a car to another area it takes about half a second to load and you do notice it. The optimization is good but the graphics are not even close to the power it demands. Still it looks amazing in a rainy night.

I have not checked but it feels smooth. I have formatted my HDD so I have to re-install it. I will tell once I have done that. I guess around 30-45fps

According to Techspot(very reliable) he can crack 47 average fps at high 1440p HERE
And Ultra at 1440p remains out of question because of texture and drops below 30FPS.
