Ubisoft Reveals Assassin’s Creed Syndicate PC Requirements

/ 7 years ago

Assassin's Creed Syndicate 1

With launch just 2 weeks away, Ubisoft is revealing just what it takes to run their latest Assassin’s Creed on PC. Overall the required specifications Assassin’s Creed Syndicate aren’t that steep but they do continue the trend we’ve been seeing, with hardware requirements similar to Fallout 4. It’s worth noting that Assassin’s Creed Unity has higher hardware requirements despite the year that separates them.

The minimum specifications are pretty tame, with the quad-core requirement standing out with an Intel i5 Sandy Bridge or AMD FX6350. 6GB of ram is required which makes sense given the 64bit OS requirement. Graphics is pretty tame with only midrange cards from 2012 with 2GB of VRAM and DX10 which is actually more surprising. Funny enough, there is no hard disk space requirement but expect it to be the same 50GB as for the recommended specifications.


  • Supported OS
    Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10(64bit versions)
  • Processor
    Intel Core i5 2400s @ 2.5 GHz or AMD FX 6350 @ 3.9 GHz
  • RAM
    6GB or more for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
  • Video Card
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 270 (2GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0)
  • DirectX
    DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • Sound
    DirectX compatible sound card with latest drivers

For the recommended setup, the specifications get a bump up but aren’t that much more demanding overall. The CPU side gets a bump by about a year in terms of architecture and 8 threads. While the 3GB VRAM requirement won’t come as a surprise, the recommendation for the GTX 970 was. Given that the 4GB 760 is fine, a 4GB 960 probably would have done fine despite the narrower memory interface. Another interesting tidbit is that in order for TXAA to work in-game, MSAA must be turned on as well.


  • Supported OS
    Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64bit versions only)
  • Processor
    Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz
  • RAM
  • Video Card
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (4GB) or the newer GTX 970 (4GB) or AMD Radeon R9 280X (3GB) or better
  • DirectX
    DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • Sound
    DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers
  • Hard Drive
    50 GB available space
  • Technical note from the developer: For a recommended experience, the game requires a video card with at least 3GB of VRAM when playing at a full HD resolution. While we encourage you to fiddle with the advanced options to fully customize your gaming experience, please keep an eye out for the VRAM meter usage when you adjust these settings.

Given the buggy mess that Assassin’s Creed Unity was and some say still is, we can only hope that Ubisoft polished things up better this time around. After all, Ubisoft did claim that PC gamers are important and that they wanted Syndicate to play well on the PC.
