The incredible tropical-paradise visuals we were treated to in trailers of FarCry 3 called for some serious hardware muscle. The studio released minimum, recommended, and high-performance system requirements lists for the upcoming AAA title. The lists are quite accommodating of today's mid-range hardware, but can be quite demanding of PCs more than 2 years old. It was also announced that the game will implement a revised Uplay DRM scheme that needs a one-time activation, and doesn't require you to stay logged-in when playing the single-player campaign.



The system requirements lists follow.
Minimum System Requirements
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 or AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+ dual-core
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX or ATI Radeon HD 2900 512 MB with DirectX 9.0c
  • Memory: 4 GB
Recommended System Requirements
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-530 or AMD Phenom II X2 565 or equivalent quad-core
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 or AMD Radeon HD 5770 or equivalent 1 GB DirectX 11 graphics
  • Memory: 4 GB
High-Performance System Requirements
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K or AMD FX-4150 or equivalent quad-core
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 or equivalent DirectX 11 graphics
  • Memory: 8 GB

If SysReq Labs follows these lists to the letter, a lot of potential buyers will be tossed out by the "Can My PC Play It?" thingie.

Wow the system I built a LONG time ago (and is somehow still alive) has a Q6600 and a 8800GTX that min spec's, back then you'd rock every game. That some high requirements for a game, must look beautiful!

you think?

if you dont have a dual core cpu and dx10 gpu in your gaming system you want talking about.

glad to see they dropped their shitty drm from the sp :)

Why on earth is the High Performance a 2600K or FX-4150??? The CPU comparisons across the board are kind of wonky. If I recall wasn't the E6700 substantially better than the Athlon X2 they listed? That 2600k is a really poor "equivalent" since the FX4xxx series is deceptively weak for a quad-core. I think saying something to the tune of i5-2xxx series or AMD FX Series would probably have been more accurate, or even listing a Phenom II X4 or better.

Not necessarily, if that system requirement is any indication, the engine for it must be optimized for parallel processing. If it is indeed threaded all to hell, the FX cpus will shine quite nicely on it. That is the one thing Bulldozer does accelerate at.

I believe it only has good multi-threading with Integer workloads, where as games are mostly floating point.

There are almost 0 gaming oriented benchmarks where an i5-2500k (or even an i5-2300) is not better than an FX-4xxx CPU. Far Cry 2 was very well threaded, and only the FX-8150 was able to remain at the level of the Sandy Bridge i5's. I'm not saying the FX-4150 isn't a capable CPU, just that it's a little wonky to say the i7-2600k is equivalent to the FX-4150.

  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 or AMD Radeon HD 5770 or equivalent 1 GB DirectX 11 graphics
  • Memory: 4 GB
Why they have 5770 and GTX 480 on the recommended system .. wasn't GTX 480 almost twice as fast as the 5770 ? :wtf:

Anyways, hope my i7 920 can cope with max settings :)

Not to mention that the graphical power of a GTX 480 is is no way comparable to HD 5770.

I'd have to agree in regards with CPU; either FC3 is heavily parallel (which would be awesome to see to be honest as no one's really taking advantage of threads yet) - or its a load of marketing bollocks for AMD evolved.

On another note - whilst a 5770 is in no league close to a 480, if it has been optimised for AMD, it might (just maybe) be enough to jump it (look at BF3 performance under nvidia vs amd for example, or Shogun 2 AMD vs Nvdia, or Dirt 3 AMD vs Nvidia)

Even if it can support an infinite number of threads, even a Quad-Core Nahalam-based i7 would outperform an FX-4150, what logical reason do they have for throwing an i7-2600k (something that crushed the FX-4150) on there as an "equivalent?"

Here is my thing FX whatever notwithstanding that it is a slower CPU than the 2600K. Games are Games and you will gain more FPS having a GTX 480 vs a 5770 than 2600K vs FX 4150. How on gods green earth is the GTX 480 in the same sentence as the 5770? People upgrade from the 5770 to a GTX 480 that's like a night and day difference in games.

Uhm... it's a AMD endorsed (and vice-versa) game... what do you guys expect? Just how Enter The Matrix (only game I can remember for sure) endorsed Intel's shit Netburst Pentium 4s, or Doom 3 for nVidia's shitty GeForce FX series (earlier on, not at the time of the actual launch)... That's not to say the AMD FX-x1xx CPUs are complete shit, I'm actually hoping for Far Cry 3 to be the first game to actually utilize AMD new "take" on multicore x86 CPUs with Bulldozer to it's "fullest" potential... especially since (at least on Windows) there isn't that much (general) software that does it to begin with... and using Intel's compiler is just part of the problem.

As for the GPU side, apart from the recommended/medium requirements, I don't see anything sketchy about it... tho I do hope they didn't "optimize" AMD GPUs for it by gimping nVidia ones... (like nVidia does sometimes when it's the MANY other times around).

But at any rate, I hope it's at least 60 frames per second average playable on max settings with 4x non-post-process AA, on the R7970s and GF680s... I really hate games that MIGHT look good, but aren't worth shit when you can't play them "as intended" on launch day, or without paying insane amounts of money (for many, even that didn't help for another 1 or 2 GPU generations), when either they're not optimized (GTA IV) OR the hardware isn't there yet (can't think of one at the moment, sadly... maybe Doom 3, especially with the immense VRAM requirements, but great performance overall otherwise) OR BOTH (Crysis is probably the best example here, but FEAR or TES IV: Oblivion can also apply).

Perhaps the game engine uses instruction set that is present on Bulldozer architecture and not on Sandy Bridge, like XOP and FMA4, because no matter how well threaded it is 4150 is 2 modules(4 cores if we take them as cores) and this is nowhere more threads as 2600k. We'll see... On the graphics front it would be refreshing to see something different than TWMTBP.
