Recommended ultra GPU is only a 670? Weird.


"Only"? the 670 is still a powerhouse GPU... it's the 5th highest ranked GPU on Passmark...

*enters topic and reads about i5 bashing*

*is a recent i5 owners*

Apparently, this ONE game that not everyone will enjoy/play will determine the ENTIRE FUTURE of PC gaming.

*leaves*

Passmark is bad. Unigine or Firestrike are much better benchmarks.

The 670 is roughly on par with the 760 (a $250 card) and the 7950 (a $200 card) in performance. In other words, it's a decent midrange card. Not quite what I'd expect for an 'ultra recommended' card at this point. I'd really expect 770/7970 or better for that honor.

I assume they recommend that card because the hand is heavy on the CPU. Given most of the game play mechanics revolve around multi tasking and manipulating the world around you. There going to be lots of data popping up on the screen as you flick from ped to ped...

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

It's obviously going to be a CPU-heavy game. All games with large, open environments are. They can't make it that demanding, though, since PS4 and Xbone need to be able to run it. Hence the incredibly weak quadcore min req.(first gen phenom lol?)
