Assassins Creed 3 System Requirements

Written by Felix Nova on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 9:09 AM

Assassin's Creed III will be set through the period of the American Revolution, 1753 to 1783.
As a half-English, half-Native American you play as Connor Kenway. As is normal from the AC series the game will also feature the "present day" setting, where you get to be our regular 2012 character, Desmond Miles.

This is the final time out for Des, as you take him through his conclusive adventure to prevent the 2012 apocalypse. Lets take a look to see what the OFFICIAL Assassins Creed 3 System Requirements are like...

Assassins Creed 3 System Requirements

Assassins Creed Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista (SP2) / Windows 7 (SP1) / Windows 8

CPU: 2.66 GHz Intel Core2 Duo E6700 or 3.00 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ or better recommended

RAM: 2 GB (4 GB recommended)

GPU RAM: 512 MB DirectX 9.0c-compliant with Shader Model 4.0 or higher (see supported list)*

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT or AMD Radeon HD 3870

AUDIO: DirectX 9.0c-compliant (5.1 surround sound recommended)

DVD: Dual-layer drive

HDD: 17 GB of free hard disk space

OTHER: Windows-compatible keyboard, mouse, optional controller (Xbox 360 Controller for Windows recommended)

Multiplayer: 256 kbps or faster broadband connection

AC3 Supported Video Cards:

AMD Radeon HD 3870 / 4000 / 5000 / 6000 / 7000 series or better

NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT / 9 / 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500 / 600 series or better

Notes: Laptop versions of these cards may work, but are not supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game.

So what do you think? We reckon the minimum CPU might be a little high and are looking forward to hearing everyones feedback about whether they can run it or not.

It means that your graphics card must be able to work with DirectX 9.0 and it must have at least 512 Mb of VRAM. Your GPU supports Dx 10 and it has 1 gb of VRAM. So it meets this requirement.

yup ! Ac games are usually good optimized but we will have to wait to check it ! recommended gpu would be gtx550 or gtx460 in my opinion because minimum gpu is 8600gt which is much slower than the old 8800gt :)

according to multiple sources, your gpu does support shader model 4.0, check a random game on "can i run it" and it will show your pixel shader to be 100% sure.
