Any word on sli scaling or vram usage ?
Nope. We also have to wait for PC-Patch 1.2... Ubisoft is only deploying Patch 1.1.0 atm via UPlay as it seems.

I think we should start a fresh thread tomorrow when everyone actually has the game and the patches/drivers have rolled out.

This thread is full of whiny bullshit, even more so than the usual Assassin's Creed thread.

Game looks pretty great to me, aside from the hair being a little wonky, but that's almost universal in games.

Hoping I can get at least 60 fps maxed out @ 1440p with SLI 980's.

? They look great to me, hair aside, that look weird depending on the shot.
I'm actually also liking how the game looks overall but there are some funny details there. Like some textures and models that could be straight from a game released in 2003.

At least HBAO+ seems to be very well implemented.
It looks like the material shaders are more or less ok but could do with more highlights and stronger specular mapping. This should really bring up the detail in the surface. I hope this is something that could be modded in.
Maybe...BlackFlag still looks impressive, can be Unity worse than than?

I find that really hard to swallow.

Any tried this on a 5820k or higher yet? Wonder if the 2 extra cores will put in work for this title.

I just bought a stupidly expensive gaming laptop with a 870m in it, and it won't even be able to run it properly by the looks of things.
Honestly, what's the point in a PC version when they cut off a massive chunk of their market by demanding tech barely anyone has to run it?

Ah well, at least those screenshots you took were pretty, OP.
I can't speak for mobile cards, but what did you expect? It's a laptop. I'd still wager you'll be able to play it.

Thanks!

I got a 270 (non-x) and a gtx 970. I was gonna test the game with my 290, but alas it's getting RMA'd... It's going to be interesting running the game with a 270, which has about the same performance, but still significantly more powerful, than the PS4's GPU. It should also give an idea of how a 7850/7870 and a 270x should perform, for those that have this kinds of GPU's...

I am also gonna try and run this game in my laptop which has an i7 3610qm processor and a 650m just for fun. I was trying to use a VPN/Proxy to change my location to try and see if Unity from Uplay would unlock and let me download the game. It didn't work. Gonna have to wait a few more hours. For anyone that's interested, I have a Sapphire 270 dual-x, and a zotac 970. I have a 4790k, and I will downclock, and disable some cores/hyper threading, to simulate an i5, and an i3. It's going to be fun experimenting with Unity.

This stream is hilarious. I'm a PC gamer for the most part, but he is doing exactly what people rag on PC gamers for doing. Literally changing graphics options every 30 seconds, lol. Jesus christ just play the game!

Its unwatchable. Though I'm not sure if people are asking him to change the options, I can't German.

i usually spend the first 2 hours of a game doing just that.
Gotta know what's the best compromise for me, man.

Unless i can just run maxed out at 60... in that case i try to 4k.

Character models are among the best I've ever seen in a game. The skin shaders are amazing.

It's a new demanding game. I can't blame anyone for spending time to tweak.

I generally never need that much time to tweak. I would say like 15 minutes on average. Its usually pretty clear what settings are bogging down performance and where to compromise.

I love having graphics options and being able to tailor my performance, but I guess I'm different than most PC gamers in that once I find something that's giving me the performance I want (as close to 60fps as possible at 1080p), I turn FRAPS off and just enjoy the game.

No Nvidia Faceworks in Unity, right?
For some reason I was under the assumption it had it, but I can't seem to find anything on it. Guess I might have just been thinking about Arkham Knight.
