Gaming PC advice regarding GPU/Processors

  Julie-Ann Bowling 17:47 08 Feb 2017

Hello, I am looking for some information on why the game I am currently playing: Conan Exiles is still struggling to run at higher settings. I upgraded to a ASUS eSports GTX GeForce 1050 graphics card and still experience freezing and some pixelation. The NVIDIA experience program still says that my system cannot support the game to its full extent. I am wondering whether if this is a processor issue or something else?

The game requirements:

Conan (for running the game on Ultra settings)

OS: Windows 7 64 bit/Windows 8 64 bit/Windows 10 64 bit

Processor: Intel Core i5/i7 3.0 GHz or AMD equivalent

Memory: 8 GB RAM

Your processor comes up short of the recommended spec for ultra settings and your graphics card is a long way short. You need to turn settings down to get it running smoothly.
