Want to run Watch Dogs on Ultra? Here’s the specs you will need

Watch Dogs Creative Director Jonathan Morin has confirmed on Twitter what kind of PC rig gamers will need in order to run Watch Dogs on ultra settings. Those wishing to experience all the beauty that the game will have to offer will need to be equipped with at least an Intel Core i7-4770K processor along with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. In contrast, the bare minimum requirements state you need at least an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 processor and a GTX 460 to play Watch Dogs on the lowest settings.

Speaking on Twitter, Morin stated, “We expect a lot of different specs to run the game at a high. But here are the ultra specs for the few who have them and ask for it…”

“Ultra specs : Intel Core i7-4770K with a GeForce 780. The PC video was recorded on an Intel Core i7-3930K with a GeForce Titan IIRC.”

He also revealed that the only graphical feature on the PC version not available to AMD owners is Nvidia’s TXAA. “Some AMD users asked for info: The only feature not available to AMD is Nvidia TXAA. HBAO+, although developed by Nvidia, also works on AMD.”
