So, I bought ACU Retail today - and my copy works.

Proof that I actually bought it (so that I wont get nuked)
http://i.imgur.com/09bYSvL.jpg

And here's the settings menu. Stupid console interface, and I cant post 20 screenshots of all the different options - so Ill just say they're all what you expect. Game does have a Borderless Window mode.

Some early screenshots, SPOILER ALERT

I'm running an i7 2600k on stock clock as well as a GTX 780

Runs better than Black Flag guys. lol On my machine.. at least.

So Paris is definitely alot more demanding than any prologue sequence.

Tested a bit more, those Shadows give a 10fps hit. Well jeez.

Might as well mention that myself and every other person with a working PC copy are running on 1.1.0 - the 1.2.0 Patch is not available yet, but promises to fix some issues.

Vsync is double buffered I suppose. So if you can't sustain 60fps it will drop to 30.
I have the same GPU as you.

Make sure you downloaded the new drivers optimized for the game.

I was barely above 30fps at all times. Sometimes it dropped into the 20s.

Ill update this with some screenshots later, until now I only played the (very spoilery) beginning bit.. and well. Maxed out with all the nVidia stuff.. I was barely above 30fps at all times. Sometimes it dropped into the 20s. (Sometimes it was also in the 40s though). Gonna play the same section again on different settings and go a bit past that to see if it changes later on.

i7 2600k and GTX 780

Do you have the latest drivers for this game? They just released like 2 hours ago. Also, if you can, post non-Vsync FPS numbers.

The screenshots are in 1920x1080, so I assume that's the resolution he's playing at.

Interested to see how my 760 will run this, though your 780 performance doesn't bode well. I'm not averse to turning some settings down, and even then it will still look/run better than the PS4 version.

Uhm, that's not necessarily true. It isn't just an SLI profile (if there even is one yet), driver updates can and often do improve performance for single GPU systems, sometimes significantly. Update the drivers and try it out.

TXAA isn't all that intensive in comparison to other AA solutions.

Drivers don't just enable SLI. They improve GPU and game communication. Drivers can make all the difference. Update drivers and let us know. Anything is possible, but I feel like the drivers will help.

It has borderless? Awesome. Means no tearing and no stupid dips.
Now it is just a matter of finding settings combination that will get me 50-60fps.

If I can get 1080p with a stable 30fps on high. I'll be content.

Ill install the Driver now, gonna try it again.


Anyways, have some screenshots in the meantime. SPOILERS

Might want to add that I didnt hit 30 the entire cutscene... As soon as gameplay hit I got to 40-50. (Without the drivers)

This is at a resolution higher than what the console versions run at, with performance killing anti aliasing and settings higher than that of consoles as well as the Nvidia effects.
I'm curious how well it runs at 900p with console settings.

Having extra options that push the game above consoles should not be treated as a bad thing, even if they are extremely hard to run. I'll only consider this port to be shit if the performance at console-esque settings is also bad.

Running a game all on max with a bunch of PC specific effects at 30fps doesnt mean the game is a crap PC version necessarily. It would be good to know how these exclusive effects affect performance.

OP hasn't installed the latest Nvidia drivers either, which is specifically for this game.

It is very intensive in deferred rendering engine like the one in AC:Unity, because TXAA also use MSAA.

If there is some temporal SMAA i think that it's the way to go for this game for medium end cards.
