AC:U Community Developer – PC Framerate Not Locked, Official Specs Conservative On The GPU Side

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is almost upon us and after that whole ‘parity’ thing that happened with its console versions, a lot of gamers wondered whether Ubisoft would lock the framerate of the PC version (you know, for ‘cinematic’ purposes). As Gabriel Graziani, Community Developer working at Ubisoft Montreal, confirmed, the PC version will have an unlocked framerate.

When asked about any FPS lock on Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Graziani had this to say:

“It’s not locked and you can toggle v-sync on or off.”

In other news, Graziani claimed that the official PC specs for Assassin’s Creed: Unity were a bit conservative on the graphics card side.

As Graziani said, PC gamers will definitely NEED 4GB of VRAM in order to run Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

“They’re final specs, although a bit conservative on the video card side because you NEED 4 gigs of VRAM.”

In a follow up, however, Graziani claimed that the official posted specs were legit and correct, meaning that 3GB of VRAM should be enough (as this is what Ubisoft recommended).

“The posted specs are correct. Sorry for the confusion, I was tweeting from home and didn’t have them in front of me.”

It will be interesting to see whether 3GB or 4GB of VRAM are indeed required for running the game in 1080p.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity releases on November 13th!
