Far Cry: Primal's Minimum And Recommended PC Specs, Courtesy Of Ubisoft

Don't you just love the smell of freshly-purchased gaming silicon? Well, if you haven't upgraded your PC in the last decade and want to give Ubisoft's Far Cry: Primal a crack, prepare to be nostril-deep in electronic odours — the publisher has just released minimum and recommended specs for the upcoming title.

On the hard drive front, you'll need at least 20GB free to install the game and a 64-bit operating system that is Windows 7 or later. That's where the similarities end; on the CPU, GPU and RAM front, the specifications differ quite a bit:

MINIMUM Processor: Intel Core i3-550 | AMD Phenom II X4 955 or equivalent RAM: 4GB Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (1GB VRAM) | AMD Radeon HD 5770 (1GB VRAM) or equivalent

And the recommended numbers:

RECOMMENDED Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K | AMD FX-8350 or equivalent RAM: 8GB Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 | AMD Radeon R9 280X or equivalent

The specifications are par for the course — as long as you have a reasonably recent machine you should be fine, as long as you don't mind switching off a few bells and whistles.

As an extra bonus, Ubi provides a list of "supported video cards at release", which contains no surprises:

AMD Radeon™ HD 5770 (1 GB VRAM) or better, HD 7000 / 200 / 300 / Fury X series NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460 (1 GB VRAM) or better, GTX 500 / 600 / 700 / 900 / TITAN series

    wake me up when they stop recycling old animations from farcry 3 from how many years ago?

    Definitely not a day 1 purchase.. it has me interested enough to have it on my watchlist but I'll be waiting for the release and subsequent reviews.

    The specs aren't all that high for current gen games.. not sure what the article is getting at to be honest.
