We tested the public release version of Watch Dogs Legions, not a press pre-release. We also installed the Day One Patch. Only NVIDIA has a game-ready driver for the game.
Graphics Memory Usage
Using a GeForce RTX 3090, which has 24 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting.
At Ultra settings, the VRAM requirements are definitely high. Even at 1080p, we measured more than 6 GB allocated. Surprisingly, performance results for NVIDIA cards with less than 6 GB are still fine, unlike AMD Radeon cards, which take a huge performance hit.
