Far Cry 5 releases on March 27, so we still have some time before it launches, but the game's system requirements have already been released, including those for 4K at both 30 FPS and 60 FPS. All of the configurations require a minimum of 8 GB of system RAM and 64-bt Windows 7 or newer. On the low end, to achieve just 720p at the Low video preset you will need either an Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD FX-6300 with NVIDIA GTX 670 or AMD R9 270. The recommended configuration, targeting 1080p at 60 FPS, bumps up the CPU requirements to the Core i7-4770 or the Ryzen 5 1600 combined with a GTX 970 or R9 290X.
If you are rocking a 4K monitor, or like scaling the display up, you will Windows 10, an Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD RX Vega 56, and 16 GB of system RAM, just to manage 30 FPS on the High preset. If you just need to have 60 FPS, you need to go multi-GPU with either a pair of GTX 1080s or two RX Vega 56s, with a Core i7-6700K or Ryzen 7 1700X feeding them. That is at the High or Ultra preset as well.
Along with the system requirements, Ubisoft has also revealed Far Cry 5 will have a benchmark feature and video memory usage meter, to help you dial in settings if you do not want to trust the game to auto-detect the best settings. These settings include variant aspect ratio support, FOV adjustment, resolution scaling, and FPS locking.
