PC System Analysis For Watch Dogs 2 Requirements
The best chance at playing Watch Dogs 2 at recommended sys specs on a 1920x1080 screen resolution will be if your PC has at least the GeForce GTX 780/Radeon R9 290 graphics card. The CPU required to meet recommended requirements is either an AMD FX-8120 or Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz processor. This type of gaming rig will deliver you around the 60 Frames per second. 8 GB will also be needed to achieve the Watch Dogs 2 rec specs and get 60FPS.

This PC setup will deliver 25-35 Frame Per Second at Low graphics setting on 720p resolution. We suggest a 8 year old PC to play smoothly.

if a game has good optimization it has stable performance and higher fps, if not then the fps jumps back and forth and it runs bad even on the best PCs.
The optimization can be from the worst to the best, it's not either really bad or really good, it can be decent, good enough, great, epic, perfect, etc.
Optimization is how good the game runs and performs

if Ubisoft follow their mot: "PC gamers don't need optimization" then we are all doomed, if they actually optimize like they did with their previous games then the real world requirements will be much lower than the requirements above

What's even more surprising about this, is that they put lesser specs for the required settings compared to Watch Dogs :P

if the requirements for watch dogs 1 are already that high, watch dogs 2 will have massive requirements like an i7 4930k and an gtx titan black for ultra.
