Ubisoft Announce The Crew System Requirements And Launch Special Nvidia Trailer

Want to run The Crew on PC rather than console? You should have a Nvidia GPU then! Or at least that’s the gist of the latest trailer for the game which shows off the exclusive Nvidia graphical option. Yes, while the console wars rage on let’s not forget the rivers of anger that stem from games being optimised for ¬†either AMD or Nvidia technology.

Obviously you can still play the game with an AMD graphics card, and in order to do so here are the official system requirements:

Minimum Configuration:
Operating System: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8/8.1 (64bit)
Processor: Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5 GHz or AMD Athlon II X4 620 @ 2.6 GHz (or better)
RAM: 4GB
Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX260 or AMD Radeon HD4870 (512MB VRAM with Shader Model 4.0 or higher)
DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card with latest drivers
Peripherals: Keyboard required, XBOX 360 controller optional (or compatible controller)

Recommended Configuration:
Operating System: Windows 8/8.1 (64bit)
Processor: Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.0 GHz (or better)
RAM: 8GB
Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX580 or AMD Radeon 6870 (1024MB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or higher)
DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card with latest drivers
Peripherals: Keyboard required, XBOX 360 controller optional (or compatible controller)

Optimal Configuration:
Operating System: Windows 8/8.1 (64bit)
Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8150 @ 3.6 GHz (or better)
RAM: 8GB
Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX670 or AMD Radeon 7870 (2048MB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or higher)
DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card with latest drivers
Peripherals: Keyboard required, XBOX 360 controller optional (or compatible controller)

That’s a pretty solid spread of parts there, so it seems as though the game should scale nicely for those working with old computers as well as those with powerful beasts. To my surprise it seems my PC (AMD FX-8350 and R9 270x) meet the optimal configuration settings, so I should hopefully be able to whack up just about everything and get a good FPS. Huzzah!
