These specs sure seem a lot but Watch_Dogs is the first next generation game along with Battlefield 4 and Assassin’s Creed 4 so that was to be expected.

Watch_Dogs seem to be supporting 8 cores pretty well. Is this another win for AMD? We have seen benchmarks for Battlefield 4 Beta showing AMD’s 8-core CPU beating Intel. While we have no benchmark results for Watch_Dogs, we have to wonder whether it will see a similar victory for AMD here or not.
