Far Cry 5 is the next huge title from Ubisoft set in breathtakingly good looking lands and in order for you PC to render all the amazing textures, make sure you have a GTX 1080 SLI hooked up to enjoy true 4K gaming.
However, it runs great on low end systems at lower resolution which denotes the developers did a good job in optimizing it.
Throughout the years, Ubisoft is known for making some of the awful PC games that were never optimized to run properly. Assassin’s Creed Unity stands as a proof in history where it ran bad on Xbox One and PS4 but was plain horrible on the PC. Many other titles from different developers as well as Ubisoft faced the same issue pushing PC gamers into the worst possible situation. It is great to see that one of the great AAA titles of 2018, Far Cry 5 has been optimized to run at 720p, 1080p and 4K.
Besides, the game developers have also detailed the minimum and recommended hardware requirements based on the graphics in which you like to experience the game. It is a good sign and this time, they are not focusing only on console gamers but are actually giving PC people the due attention they deserve. After all, despite the massive Xbox One X console’s hardware capability, it is still computers with their powerful Nvidia and AMD graphic cards that deliver a game at its best with true 4K resolution and 60 FPS.
Far Cry 5 Recommended Requirements for 1080p Gaming
If you are planning to play Far Cry 5 at 720p or 1080p resolution, you definitely need 8GB of RAM which is consistent across all recommended requirements. You can play the gaming using a GTX 670 or AMD R9 270 at 720p resolution. The video preset should be set at low. For 1080p gaming at 60 FPS, you need a Nvidia GTX 970 or the AMD R9 290X with video preset set at high. This seems to be the sweet point for most PC Gamers who should be able to enjoy the first person shooter without any hiccups.
4K Gaming at 30 or 60 FPS
The scenarios changes for Far Cry 5 at 4K as you need GTX 1070 or RX Vega 56 for 4K 30 FPS while 60 FPS requires a GTX 1080 SLI or RX Vega 56 CFX. The specs sound great and the game should run fine for most gamers with a decent gaming build if not an SLI.
