Skull and Bones was detailed by Ubisoft during Gamescom 2022, where we learn of PC specs that include support for all major AI scaling technologies.
Ubisoft has announced that Skull and Bones will feature uncapped FPS on the PC, along with HDR support, multi-screen and ultra-wide monitor support, Ray-Traced Global Illumination or RTGI ) and even an in-game benchmark. which will help people like me test out NVIDIA DLSS, AMD FSR, and Intel XeSS scaling support.
PC requirements have been announced, where if you want to run Skull and Bones at its maximum with 4K 60FPS+, Ubisoft recommends a fairly modest Intel Core i5-11600K or AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU, just 16GB of RAM and 65GB of SSD storage. For the GPU, they recommend the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 10GB with DLSS enabled and set to “Balanced” or the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT 16GB with FSR enabled and set to “Balanced”.

At the top, the developer may have 4K 60FPS as a highlight, but Skull and Bones supports uncapped FPS on the PC, so if you have the CPU and GPU hardware to handle it, then in Ubisoft’s words: ” but if 144FPS hacking is something you’ve always wanted, now is your chance.”
There’s also ray tracing in the form of ray-traced global illumination, so at 4K and beyond with ray-tracing enabled, Skull and Bones should look very good. The sequel to games with enhanced display configurations: 21:9, 32:9 and beyond, and multi-monitor setups are all set to rock…or am I celebrating. .with Skull and Bones.
- Let’s start with our low system requirements. To achieve a stable 30FPS at 1080p, minimum system requirements include an Intel i7 4790 processor (or AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600) paired with GPUs such as NVIDIA’s GTX 1060 (6GB) and AMD’s RX 570 (4GB).
- Although the GPU and CPU are very important, they should be paired with at least 8GB of DDR4 RAM running in Dual Channel configuration. Of course, the world of Skull and Bones, with all the ships and piracy you can expect, requires at least 65 GB of space on your SSD.
- Switching to high settings, an i7 8700K (or Ryzen 5 3600) with an RX 5700XT (or RTX 2070) will take you to 1080p and 60FPS, with 16GB of RAM (dual channel) in tow. Of course, the SSD space is the same as above.
- If your monitor is 1440p, expect to hit 60FPS on top at that resolution with an i7 9700K/Ryzen 5 5600X, alongside Team Green’s RTX 3070 (8GB) and Team Red’s RX 6800 (16GB) . 16 GB of RAM is still standard here!
- Finally, for the few to aim for 4K60 in Ultra settings, your achievement is gargantuan, but DLSS and FSR come to your rescue! In our testing, a steady 60FPS is achievable using DLSS or FSR on their Balanced presets, with the following minimum specs: Intel I5 11600K/AMD Ryzen 5 5600X and NVIDIA RTX 3080/AMD RX 6800XT, with 16GB or RAM.
