Far Cry 5 amd phenom cpu issues

Far Cry 5 is currently one of the most popular games on PC. The title already reached an impressive 1 million player milestone, but unfortunately the gaming experience hasn’t been that smooth for all players.

Many gamers relying on AMD Phenom CPU are still struggling to launch Far Cry 5 but the game won’t load and eventually crashes with error 000001.

I’ve got this requirements, which are above thte minimum, but after I installed the game and download everything, the game gives me the 000001 error and said I’m below the minimum requirements.

Far Cry 5  won’t launch on AMD-powered computers

Many players first thought that this error code was triggered by EasyAntiCheat incompatibility issues but this hypothesis proved to be incorrect.

The culprit seems to actually be AMD Phenom’s lack of SSE 4.1 support, as this gamer points out:

Phenom processors don’t support the SSE 4.1 CPU instruction set and the DRM Ubisoft used in Assassin’s Creed Origins couldn’t run on Phenom processors because of this lack of support. I’m sure that Far Cry 5 is having the same issue

Following thousands of users complaints, Ubisoft’s Support team finally agreed to analyze this problem and asked users to open new support tickets in order to provide them with more information about this issue.

Hey guys! If you are having this issue, PLEASE create a ticket with MSINFO and DXDIAG. We need these files to look into this issue more. Thank you!

This is not the first time that AMD Phenom users can’t play their favorite games. As a quick reminder, Dishonored 2 fans experienced the exact same issue when the game was launched.

Hopefully, Ubisoft will soon fix these annoying Far Cry 5 errors plaguing AMD Phenom CPUs so that fans can finally dive into the gameplay.
