Whell what to say gtx titan cannot max out ac4 at 60 fps, with 780 ti you can cranck up AA only to 2 xMSAA
people on various sites are alerady reporting stutering oh yea and it seems there is no diffrence again betwen
dual and quad core,sily me thinking ill be able to max this out with overcloacked gtx 760 ahaha, if titan cannot max this out at 1080p
what whould you need for 4k that is being advertised for this game a nasa space shuttle?I remeber reading sarcastic posts from xspectatorx
about ac optimization couple of days age and laughing my a.. out thinking it will probably be much better this time,only positive right know is lot ofoption,
i hope they are alerady working on apatch but we all know how that wnded with ac3.:mad::(

I have to say that optimisation seems pretty damn good... well, for my 2 580 Classifieds anyway!

1920x1200 and all settings maxed.... 45fps+ Can't complain ;)

Beautiful looking game!

no, it's in the top 10 most poorly optimized games of all time just like AC 3 was. it gets 40 FPS and under on lowest settings on absolute top of the line hardware, that's pathetic. ubisoft is the worst PC developer in existence and have been for years.

Before i installed the Black Flag drivers, my GPU's were only using 50% on each card. With the new drivers it went straight up 97-99%

I've never had any problems with Ubisoft games. I guess my 580's are just awesome :o

there are no black flag drivers, nor any drivers that make any assassin's creed playable. the only thing the new drivers do is add a sli profile. you say you have no problems, but that's not true. I know your specs and I know you have under 40 FPS. you don't notice horrendous framerate, that's not the same as not having any problems. to this day, far cry 2 and far cry 3 are the only mutliplatform games ubisoft has *EVER* made that were optimized for PC in any capacity. and your theory about drivers doesn't make any sense since AC3 is over a year old and is still gets 20 FPS lowest settings on top of the line hardware.

AC3 is over a year old and is still gets 20 FPS lowest settings on top of the line hardware.

That is a massive exaggeration, I get a constant 35 fps with a 2 year old gtx570 at absolute max settings, and just turning anti aliasing down to high gets a constant 50+fps. The anti aliasing is what is most poorly optimized. 'Absolute top of the line hardware' from last year would be easily able to run it at 60+ fps on max

I am getting steady 60 FPS (SHAME FOR FPS LOCKS) on my GTX 780 with max settings, except that I use FXAA on all games. Switching to 2x MSAA does not do much to my FPS either. I am surprise you are having problems with your Titan!!

AA is just heavy...

Edit :The thing people need to understand is that AA is not meant to be cranked up. Just put FXAA or 2x MSAA if you have some overhead and its enough

You can't simply patch "BAD FPS"..

I'm donning a GTX 660 and I get a average of 50 FPS with max settings with a i5 3470, exception of shadows at high, I don't see how you guys are having problems tbh. And please don't make assumptions based off some extrapolated table of recommended settings.. they clearly note that settings indicated are for a guaranteed average FPS of 40.

You also must take into account this is an open world game, open world games generally have a hard time running smoothly at max settings 60 FPS. Sadly it's mostly the linear games that get away with this poor optimization crap..

Only developers who know how to code open world games as of late is Bethesda. Yes they have problems of past, but Skyrim runs perfect and looks amazing with mods. Also Fallout:NV with mods looks great without one drop. Rather see graphics like Skyrim with great gameplay, if this is the only way to hold 60 fps/ 120fps. Right now I found a setting in AC:4 that seems to hold 60 fps majority of the time, but also looks nasty at times. Textures look like they are on a mushroom trip if you set the environment quality from (very high) to (high).

Ubisoft, you should pay for my treatment, i need help of psychologist, that's how depressed you made me. You ruined series i've loved so much. I didn't buy the game, didn't preorder it, i was considering gold edition when it will be released but i see you do not deserve my money, not a single penny, i will not buy the game at all.




Dear ac gamers, never forget: "Devs are aware!!!!!!!!" :D

And some official advice..

Try turning soft shadows OFF - they impact FPS a lot, Try Vsync OFF and update drivers etc


Basic advice I know, however some people are finding soft shadows helps..


Other than that, please contact support - who may have some other ideas.
www.support.ubi.com



It has been posted that identical setups have widely different FPS - so something may be hindering in the games settings, so please do share your settings if you get 60fps to help others!

Ingame VSync sets FPS to 30. If you want more than 30, don't use ingame VSync. Use an outside injector for VSync or just don't use it all.

8350 + 2x 7950's lets me max everything at MSAA 4x minus ingame VSync and I get constant 50-60FPS. Also using RadeonPro to inject FXAA, SMAA and VSync.

Yeah i actually realised that when I tried with one card that vsync was actually limiting to to 30, but with 2 cards I'm getting 45fps+ with vsync enabled.

Last night I gave up caring about all these performance issues and fps etc and just thought.... just play the game! Really really blown away by the graphics and, just a real pity i cant take any screenshots, which is really rubbish Ubisoft!


Just one last thing, just thought I'd have a quick look at CPU / Memory usage while it was running.... It's only using 1 core! So no wonder the people are having problems, especially with newer cards, there must be some ridiculous bottleneck going on! And Memory..... it only uses about 600mb :/

I can confirm that antialiasing is broken. MSAA and other modes look blurry when they shouldn't (except FXAA which should).
And with antialiasing off the game runs a lot better.

Sadly, this game has the same bad CPU usage as AC3, game has not constant 60fps.
When running around, fps drop to 57/58. I know it's only 2 fps, but the game immediately stutters because of that, which is annoying - lowering environment quality helps.

Yeah I don't see much improvement from MSAAx2 or MSAA or FXAA. I usually can tell the visual difference after changing them around. *Shrugs*

I own a GTX 760 and I am playing the game on High to Very High settings (in fact those proposed by Geforce experience), although settings make little difference to the fps factor (between normal and very high, there is only 2 or 3 frames difference). For most of the time my frames are between 55 and 60 (that is in Havanna, Nasseau, while on sea). The time when frames dip to 40s is when there is dense vegetation on screen (Southern part of Nasseau, jungles, big islands etc). Lowering the settings does not help much. So, since the problem is specific to these cases, there might be an Nvidia / AMD driver later on that addresses the issue of vegetation.

I tried overclocking my cpu last night and gained 5-10 fps.

So if this is true:

Last night I played Metro Last Light to see how cpu usage compared. On AC4 1 core is maxed out and the others don't seem to be doing much. On Metro, all cores were pretty much even at about 60%.

I have 3570K at 4.4 btw

Metro last light truly shows when developers understand how to develop for PC. Also noticed my GPUs stay cool on that engine even at 95% usage on both cards. AC:4 CPU programming is bottle necking GPU performance. Makes sense since high end cards are having problems. Turning off parked cores gain small changes in performance.

I don't have any problems when boarding ships. Apart from the ocassional smokes lowering my frames, I am mostly good with it.
As far as the signature is concerned, choose "settings" from the upper right corner of any page in the Ubisoft forums and then choose "Edit Signature" from the catalogue on the left.

Yeah, I have a very similar system.
And I found out that Antialiasing was causing that. Just turn AA Off and you will get better fps.
Also God rays will be better optimized in the future, so you should put those on Low for the moment.

If you did have everything turned on, you would either have 30 or 60 FPS, nothing in between, because of the fact that the game does not support tripple buffering, but only double buffering.

So to make the cpu's work better, you have to disable, then re-enable them !? Comical programming :D

oh really ... check this out ... i run AC4 with ONLY one core ( CPU 0 ) with these specs : Asus EAH 5770 CU core driver version 13.11 beta 9.4 , Intel i7 3770 @ 3.90 GHz 8M Cache , GA P75-D3 F11 , Corsair 8 GB DDR3 RAM , Cooler master extreme 500 W PSU , Win 7 64 bit ultimate SP1 and these settings :

resolution : 1920x1080
shadow quailty: high
AA : SMAA
textrue quailty : high
god rays : low
Vsync : on ( with D3DOverrider and btw we need a patch for that too )
ambient occlusion : off
volumetric fog : on
motion blur : on
environmental quality : low

and i gets 33 - 38 FPS and if i enabled the 2th one i gets ZERO performance and by that i mean NOT EVEN A SINGLE FPS .. SO IF ANY ONE HAVE A CPU WITH ONLY ONE CORE WITH 3.90 GHz 8M Cache HE CAN RUN THIS GAME FINE AND THATS EXACTLY HOW UBISOFT AND NVIDIA DEVELOPERS THINKING : FOCUS ON THE GPU AND SCREW THE CPU SO WE CAN FORCE PEOPLE TO BUY OUR NEW GPUS !!!

I have a gtx680 @1267mhz @3350 mhz mem (it's basically a GTX770)
3770k 4.5ghz
16 ram

And on
1080p
AA: OFF
very high shadows
very high environment
HBAO+ High
god rays low
volumetric fog ON


I can get almost solid 60fps.

Seems the game doesn't play well when you are on remote islands where is ONLY vegetation. I searched for a island with only houses, and on that one i had 60fps, on ONLY vegetation islands (or towns) the fps drops like hell. It's the vegetation's fault.

Also the game doesn't use more than 2 Cores !!!

If the game used true 4 cores, the game will run smooth, but it doesn't because ubisoft doesn't want us PC gamers to enjoy.

I was thinking to buy a GTX 780 Ti, but when i saw that 780 users had the exact same fps as my fps (in combat also) i am saving money for nvidia GTX880.

Bottom line: the game has fps drops on vegetation areas (like Nassau) and ONLY if you look from CERTAIN ANGLES ON VEGETATION.

I really think if they want they could release a fix for this, but they don't want...they are just trolling again and again...

PS: If a 780 can't get solid 60fps with max setting except AA, that means the game is not optimized for PC. UBISOFT remember the huge threads on Assassins Creed 3 launch day ?

^ Already saw that, the game is crap on PC...as they say, sadly.

U troll ? We talk here about ubisoft's crappy PC game in terms of performance/fps/optimize.

Also curious thing, if you destroy a fost and get into it, where it's smoke everyware and fires, the fps doesn't drop a bit. And it drops like hell on some small islands with ONLY trees and vegetation, nice ubisoft again...

So, anyone tested the "disable/enable" cpu cores ? Did anyone see any improvement?

Than you're obviously not paying an attention.
