Assassins Creed 3 System Requirements Rumoured

System Requirements Optimum 1080p PC Build Low vs Ultra Screenshots GPU Performance Chart CPU List That Meet System Requirements GPU List That Meet System Requirements

AC3 is a few months off yet but there are some rumours going around saying that the Assassins Creed 3 system requirements have been leaked.

The original Assassins Creed 3 system requirement rumour source was over on a Chinese website. Well we figured we would share those AC3 requirements in case you wanted to make your own mind up about them...

Assassins Creed 3 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista / 7 
CPU: Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz or AMD Althon 2.7GHz 
RAM: 2GB 
GPU: Nvidia and ATI cards support DX10 or DX11, ATI Radeon 3870 or Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT or higher 
GPU RAM: 512MB 
AUDIO: any device compatible with DX 
HDD: CD-ROM need 12GB, digital version requires 10GB

Assassins Creed 3 Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 64-bit 
CPU: Intel or AMD quad-core processor 
RAM: 4GB 
GPU: Nvidia and ATI cards support DX11, ATI Radeon 6950 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or higher 
GPU RAM: 1GB 
AUDIO: Any DX-compatible equipment 
HDD: CD-ROM need 12GB, digital version requires 10GB

Note that it is suggesting DX10 or higher. Which means no Win XP.

What do you guys think? Are they official or just rumour mongering?

This is last of Desmond-->Desmond is needed for syncing Connor's memories.
But there will be no Desmond,therefore I don't think any additions will be there...

If you loved the previous games, this is a must buy, your mobile gfx should have little trouble running this, but it will run it. Also these are still rumoured requirements, so the game could require less hardware to run this, or even more.

Thanks for posting this article! For the most part I feel these are fairly accurate especially if DX11 features are turned on and if it uses PhysX. Hopefully DX11 can be turned to DX9 or DX10 like in Arkham City. That will help out with with playability and performance and let more people enjoy the game.
