Watch Dogs Can Run on Ultra Settings on nVidia GTX 670

By   /   May 19, 2014

A fan approached Watch Dogs’ game director Jonathan Morin, asking whether the game will run on ultra settings on his nVidia GTX 670 gpu or will he need a new gpu, Morin responded by saying that he won’t need to upgrade his gpu.

According to Morin, 90% of the development team ran the game with nVidia Geforce 670 and the game will run on Ultra settings if paired with a CPU that doesn’t bottleneck the GPU’s performance.

Whilst Ubisoft claims that players will need atleast a nVidia GTX 780 with a Intel i7 3.5ghz to run the game at ultra settings, the interesting bit to note is that the GTX 670 is almost equal to the GTX 780 as far as clock speeds are concerned.

GTX 670:
GPU Engine Specs:

  • CUDA Cores: 1344
  • Graphics Clock: 915(MHz)
  • Processor Clock: 980(MHz)
  • Texture Fill Rate: 102.5(billion/sec)

Memory Specs:

  • Memory Clock: 6.0 Gbps
  • Memory Interface: GDDR5
  • Memory Interface Width: 256-bit GDDR5
  • Memory Bandwidth: 192.2 (GB/sec)

GTX 780:
Engine Specs:

  • CUDA Cores: 2304
  • Base Clock: 863(MHz)
  • Boost Clock: 900(MHz)
  • Texture Fill Rate: 160.5(billion/sec)

Memory Specs:

  • Memory Speed: 6.0 Gbps
  • Standard Memory Config: 3072 MB
  • Memory Interface: GDDR5
  • Memory Interface Width: 384-bit
  • Memory Bandwidth: 288.4(GB/sec)

Note: both GPUs have the same features so i skipped those.

But of course, comparing GPUs together is nothing without performance testing. According to this comparison I did on GPUboss; the GTX 670 is just one step behind the GTX 780. So, is your system is good enough to run the game on ultra?
