Far Cry 5's PC specs are a real bear for the highest settings

0

But a bull for average settings

PC players who are looking to systematically dismantle a cult in Far Cry 5 won't need too much from their system to make it happen. But, those who want to look the best while doing it will need a rig that's crazier than Eden's Gate's leader.

Ubisoft has revealed Far Cry 5's PC specs today and they're all over the place. They range from pretty dang reasonable to nearly top of the line. Here's what you'll need just to get the game to run:

Minimum settings:

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-6300 @ 3.5 GHz or equivalent
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 or AMD R9 270 (2GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Resolution: 720p
  • Video Preset: Low

You have to bump up your hardware a bit to reach 1080/60, but it's still not bad:

Recommended settings (60 FPS): 

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.2 GHz or equivalent
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD R9 290X (4GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Resolution: 1080p
  • Video Preset: High

Things take a turn when you're looking to hit 4K (as with most every game):

4K Configuration (30 FPS): 

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit version only) 
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 @ 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.6 GHz or equivalent
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD RX Vega 56 (8GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Resolution: 2160p
  • Video Preset: High

And you'll need to pull out the big guns for 4K at 60FPS:

4K Configuration (60 FPS):

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-bit version only) 
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 1700X @ 3.4 GHz or equivalent
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI or AMD RX Vega 56 CFX (8GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better)
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Resolution: 2160p
  • Video Preset: High/Ultra

That's right -- dual 1080s to get Far Cry 5 playing in the best possible condition. Not a lot of folks are going to hit that, and that's perfectly fine. Anyone with that sort of SLI/Crossfire configuration has prioritized (and spent) for exactly this type of maximum quality scenario. The rest will be a-okay with reaching the more reasonable recommended settings.
