Not reading the caht atm to be honest but he just dissabled MSAA2x and went for FXAA and the game runs now at 50-60 fps.

So for all GTX 970 people 60 fps seems to be doable with some tweaking...
Thanks for the updates!

Dude on the stream is getting 250 FPS!!!

On a pre-rendered cutscene :p

It looks liek the prerendered cutscenes are 60 FPS though, they certinaly look really smooth!

Or maybe it's just a not very demanding real-time cutscne? I'm so confused!

It was basically constantly 40fps in the first section he played... (although I'm not sure if it was the first section...he had this weird selection screen...) anyway. It was 40-45 the whole time with the AI and the combat going on.

When that finished it's been 50-60 just during gameplay. But still early on. Seems like he switched to FXAA too.

It looks good from what I can see though...


shit it wasn't even at ultra for environments and textures.

So your PC is less powerful than your PS4? 'cause that's the only reason to go PS4, in which case you were probably goign to go PS4 regardless...
Not really. If you've got a PS4 there's solid reasoning to get that version instead if the PC port isn't that great anyway. There are reasons to buy it on console outside of pure performance.

Indoors it's 55-65 FPS for this guy.

Gotta say, having watched the PS4 youtube videos, once again, 50+ FPS does wonder to how the game looks and feels.
Now he is running the game @ 1080p, everything on ultra but shadows wich are on low and FXAA. Around 55-60 fps indoors. Waiting for Paris.


And his specs again, for people who do not want to search.

Intel® Core™ i7-4790K 4,00GHz

2x 4GB Corsair XMS3 PC3-12800U CL9

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970 4GB GDDR5

So am I shit out of luck with a GTX 770. Might as well play on a PS4 ?
yes, go with the less powerful PS4. It makes perfect sense, thanks for stopping by.

I can't with these thread any more.

Anyway, cheapest place to get it? Does that Origin India store trick still work?

Yes.

Looks like about 55 fps during usual gameplay. Not sure about his settings though (not sure if the max textures applied). He's on FXAA now though.

Lighting looks nice, popin doesn't seem super common.

IF you're debating whether to get it on PC or PS4, I'd assume performance/grpahics ar eprobably at least one reason why.

For em 60 FPS vs 30 with drops is reason enough.

we've no indication that the PC port isn't that great though. One shouldn't froget that the performance on PS4 is pretty poor if you like stable framerates, even at 900p.

Of course if performance isn't important to a person because he prioritises friends or trophies or whatever he'll buy it on consoles. I find it unlikely such a person would consider the PC version no matter the port quality.

It will never stop. Ever.

And I got my copy from there an hour or two ago without issues. In my origin library although it doesn't unlock for 11 hours, no pre-load. Came out to 31 USD after tax for me.

Game has huge performance hit (on the images and the twitch stream), but the visuals doesn't look that great (for some reason, I just can't put my finger on which visual elements looks bad).

If you take into consideration of the context of his comment, then presumably his "Guess I'll go PS4 then" is about performance.

The global illumination(?) implementation makes it look kinda weird. Like everything is wrapped in plastic.

How do people think I will fare with an i5-4670k at 4GHZ and a 7950? Black Flag ran fine with most settings at max for the most part.

Doll house effect.


Looks pretty good to me overall though. Just hope I can get it to a locked framerate.

A Ubisoft engine is inefficient? You don't say.

Seriously, Ubi, 1600x900 console versions, 780s can't run it above 30 on PC? Get your shit together.

I wonder what UBI does with their PC-games to get that slow and stable framerate-diff. It's like the engine is rendering some kind of median-value of what it's capable off. Never seen another games framerate respond to the environment in the way Watch Dogs, AssCreed and Far Cry 3 does.

And those games don't even use the same engine.
