Question about the Warhammer Specs

So my Specs are:

i7-4790k 4.0 GHz

GTX 970



I looked at the Specifications for TW:WH over at this site:


I meet nearly every requirements for the " PC 60+ Specifications" (NEARLY; i have a 970 and not an 980)

So i should be able run this game pretty well when it comes out, according the thread/page i linked.
My only problem is that im not even able to run ROME 2 (nor Attila) on maxed out settings with constant 60< FPS. So right now Im worried that i wont even be able to play this game on medium because i can't even run Attila properly. So do you think the performance will be better in this game? Or is there something wrong with my parts? Do I need new parts?

Thank you

    Max settings are not necessarily the same as ultra. Usually on an ultra preset you will have certain options disabled that currently used a lot of resources for arguably little gain.

    For example their AA option on ultra is MLAA. There are certainly more taxing options.

    They don't include,

    Depth of field.
    Screen space reflections.

    So that is an obvious difference between "MAX" and "ULTRA".

    Probably it will run but not at a level most people would find enjoyable.
    YouTube, it takes over your mind and guides you to strange places like tutorials on how to talk to a giraffe.

    Belisk has a good point.

    Usually ultra settings are the "going all out" settings. Settings that the average player wont even be able to tell are there or not. (usually new techs or ultra fine detail that the developers can put into the game for those who have enthusiast grade PCs)

    So my point is, high settings will look just about as good as the game can. But the ultra settings will give it an extra pop of eye candy.

    The other options are to overclock you video card. That may get you into the ultra range, but your FPS will suffer a bit. You could also try and sli your 970 so that you dont have to spend money on a 980 and have a useless 970.
