Far Cry recommended specs continue raising bar for PC gaming

Although virtual reality and future games like Star Citizen are really going to push our gaming systems to their limits when released, other AAA titles are carrying the torch through much more reasonable steps. They are still climbing ever higher though and Far Cry: Primal is no different, requiring anyone who wants to run the game at decent detail levels have at least a GTX 780, or R9 280X.

Set to debut next month, Far Cry: Primal puts players in the shoes of an early human as society is transitioning from hunter gatherers to settlers, but you can control the beasts of the world. It's a very pretty game but getting it running won't be too hard. If you want to get the full visual experience though, you will need quite a hefty system.

Minimum requirements

OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only).
Processor: Intel Core i3-550 | AMD Phenom II X4 955 or equivalent.
RAM: 4GB.
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (1GB VRAM) | AMD Radeon HD 5770 (1GB VRAM) or equivalent.
Storage space: 20 GB.

Nothing there is too hectic. There are plenty of cards with a gigabyte of video memory and most gamers are sporting more than 4GB of RAM at this point.

The recommended specifications however do makes things a little harder for people:

OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only).
Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K | AMD FX-8350 or equivalent.
RAM: 8GB.
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 | AMD Radeon R9 280X or equivalent.
Storage Space: 20 GB.

A system like this of course still won't get you close to ultra settings, but it should look good. For maximum settings, expect to need a much heftier GPU and CPU combo.

Far Cry: Primal is set for release on 23rd February for Xbox One and PS4 gamers, and 1st March for those on the PC.

KitGuru Says: My 280x is getting pretty long in the tooth at this point, but upgrading before Pascal/Polaris is harder to justify. Decisions, decisions.

  1. You atleast have 280x. I play on my 270x. Until now no sufficient funding for better one. 😀
    But when Polaris/Pascal goes out i’ll buy new one. Games are really demanding now, even on 1080p, and i do not game if i can not play atleast on high quality settings.

  2. !Super excited for the ZEN cpu, another great design by the great Jim Keller! The Polaris GPU’s are going to be an awesome combo. So happy for next year!

  5. Damn… Nvidia, AMD, if you are to release those GPUs, do it fast. Current gen is getting overwhelmed…and the performance is getting closer to be “unsufficient”.,.

  6. Any benchmarks or ES samples to validate this excitement?

  7. I have a GTX980, 16GB DDR4 3200MHz and an i7-6700k (@4.4GHz) and I imagine this game will still not max out on my system, which is depressing. Some settings on FC4 are unavailable to me (if I want 60FPS solid).

  8. Inform yourself on Jim Keller’s designs(I’m sure since this is the Internet), any counter-argument from any other accomplished CPU architect that says otherwise of his savvy work?

    I love competition, which is the reason for my excitement. What is the reasoning for the cynical attitude you bestow upon here?

  9. I’m not cynical, I just hear this a lot and there isn’t any evidence for it. If someone was saying Skylake-E is going to have some revolutionary design that would destroy everything, but there was no ES sample or any tapes, you’d hopefully be skeptical.
