    Yes to both, Uplay is just terrible, Please let it die, Port all games over to steam.

    And as for Physx, I own an Nvidia card but Physx was so badly implemented in AC4, And for what it did which wasn't much at all, It killed performance.

    Look at the Batman Arkham series, They all have Physx and have beautiful graphics on par with AC4 and performance that is awesome, Please learn from them.

    Let us hope that the new PhysX implementation does not create the horrible framerate drops it did in AC4.

    Well, this alliance actually worked last year. Made Assassin's Creed 4 run okay on PCs, even though it was a Ubisoft game.

    GTX 760 OC Edition / Intel i5 3570 / 8 GBs of RAM and I play the game on High / SMAA / no PhysX at 50 to 60 fps.
