Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag: is Ubisoft's next instalment in the hugely successful Assassin's Creed series, with the latest offering set in the violent colonies and on the pirate ships of the 18th Century Caribbean.

As is usual with laptop versions of these graphics cards, they may work with AC4 Black Flag but are NOT officially supported.

Looks like they're after a quad-core for minimum, which may concern quite a few people still running a dual-core but, as we covered on Monday, AC4 is looking like it could pack a real punch graphically.

The official requirements have now been removed from their original placement on Ubisoft, suggesting perhaps that they may still be subject to minor changes.

We will update any possible changes as soon as we know any more.
