How is the g75vw THAT outdated for 'Watch Dogs' game?

Level 7
I have a g75vw with a 670m gpu. I did the test on nvidia's website to see how well I would be able to run Watch Dogs. It told me my gpu didn't even reach minimum requirements. I have never played a game that this gpu couldn't handle on Ultra or custom settings.(on rare occasions I've had to have all settings set to ultra and shadow set to high or very high if available). Is Watch Dogs really that massive of a leap in graphics or is nvidia just trying to sell new cards? This leaves me a little sad as apparently you can't upgrade the gpu in a g75. I really don't want to get this for PS4 but don't see much of a choice at the moment.

Thanks for your replay, now that answers many questions.
What are you getting in FPS, and did you OC anything settings?

FPS is 23-24 stable when in chase it is down to 19 but it is comfortable to play no OC or something like that just factory settings

One more thing! When you use those benchmark websites, they have issues analyzing laptop GPUs! So a lot of times you will see misleading information reagarding whether or not you can run a game. One of those sites told me a couldnt run BF3, and we all know these lappys can do 1080p ultra/high without any problems...so don't worry, Watch Dogs will run on these for sure, you might even be doing high/medium settings without a hitch.

The frame rate is not the greatest, but you still somewhat playable.(closer to 60 fps would be more favorable)
you can get better fps if you lower settings, or tweak/play with game settings in the nVidia control panel.

That was with the 670m correct? Has anyone tried to check framerates with the 670mx? I just purchased the game so I guess I'll know in a few minutes. I'm running windows 8.1 so I'm sure that's not going to help me much.
