Proof that I actually bought it (so that I wont get nuked)
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
With the new drivers, and TXAA disabled (I'm on 4xMSAA) I get around 45-50fps during regular gameplay (in the beginning scene that I also used to capture those screenshots) and cutscenes. The cutscenes still drop into 20s though whenever there's a closeup on a face for some weird reason
Running through Paris, with the crowds and all - I get 45-60 fps with FXAA and everything else maxed out. Some odd stuttering though, might be loading..
Runs better than Black Flag guys. lol On my machine.. at least.
So Paris is definitely alot more demanding than any prologue sequence.
For the people that wanted to know, stable 60 when I set it to 720p maxed out. Its a damn blurry mess though so - hell naw lol
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.
Oh, damn I disabled PCSS Shadows and now I'm averaging at 55-60fps atm where I'm at in the city. That made a difference. But its an open world game, so time of day, crowd etc all factor in and I cant possible test all that.
Tested a bit more, those Shadows give a 10fps hit. Well jeez.
