Far Cry 6 PC Specs Revealed – 4K@30FPS with Ray Tracing Requires RX 6800/RTX 3080 GPUs

Submit

Ubisoft has just released the official Far Cry 6 PC specifications, and they're steeper than we had imagined, particularly if you plan to activate ray tracing features (reflections and shadows). In that case, you'll need an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X or Intel i7-10700K CPU and an AMD RX 6800 or NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU, and that's just to play at 4K and 30 frames per second.

4K, 30 FPS, DirectX Raytracing On

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X – 3.7 GHZ or Intel i7-10700k – 3.8 GHZ

GPU: AMD RX 6800 – 16 GB or NVIDIA RTX 3080 – 10 GB

RAM: 16 GB (Dual-channel mode)

Additional Far Cry 6 PC Features:

  • Uncapped framerate
  • In-depth customization options
  • Hybrid input and extended control customization
  • Multi-monitor and widescreen support
  • In-game benchmark for performance analysis
  • DirectX Raytracing (DXR)
  • AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution Support

The real saving grace for Far Cry 6 on PC might be AMD's FSR, as the recommendations are based on tests that did not include this performance-saving technology. It might be possible to get close to 60 FPS once FidelityFX Super Resolution is enabled, especially if you're willing to use the Balanced or Performance settings.
