Not sure how to report to GD that this game runs on Ultra without issue on my laptop. =/


Aside from a few weird parts where it stutters, no issue at all

You got a dual core which might hold it back at times, make sure nothing else is running in windows and you should be fine

Ultra should be fine (no hairworks), and expect frames to be around 60 most of the time.

Recommended usually means 60 fps, medium. Or by Ubisoft's definition, 30fps, Medium, 720p. It's just what they recommend for a playable experience.

To be honest, you'll need something around a GTX 980/1060 (or a RX 480 in AMD's case) to maintain near 60 fps constant at ultra.
