    A Dumb Idea, Maybe, But it would help Ubisoft rep as of late.

    If people want the Watch_Dogs e3 settings, why doesn't Ubisoft release an update to the PC version with the effects enabled (but as a separate option)? And add a "proceed at your own risk" option? (Unless the performance issues are so severe that you honestly think it would cause severe damages, to which case you could tone down the amount of the effect[s] instead of removing the effects altogether) You could also include a clause in the EULA agreement with that patch that renders you, Ubisoft, at no fault to damages or malfunctions to the end user's machine. You would win the PC community back, at least.
    No?
    Just a thought.
    But please do it.

    The E3 graphics are secondary and not hugely important right now and can easily be added by the user anyway, what is important is that they get the game running properly.

    I as a developer hosestly wouldn't add instable features even with such a notice to a game which is in fact instable enough.

    FYI - The team are still investigating the cause of the stutter and are attempting to remove it in future updates.

    I really hope so, I pretty much abandoned to play this game after the patch release. The game is just broken. It was better before the patch.

    Please see post here (GeForce Forums): http://goo.gl/VFGKuB OR this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edFv7nN_ACI

    Watch it to the end, that is what I am experiencing on a 3930k + TITAN (single) + 16GB + SSD system. 340.xx driver.

    NO MODS, the game is STOCK.

    djriful, the freezing you are getting looks exactly like mine does. If you disable SLI it doesn't do that anymore, you'll be back with the stuttering we had pre-patch although your overall framerate will take a hit.

    This is a single GTX TITAN, I don't even have a second GPU or SLI.

    Load temperature 40'c GPU and 50'c CPU. Full custom watercooling.

    Ah sorry, I only clicked on the youtube link and I thought the video was your gameplay. When I disable SLI it only freezes like that when driving, not when running around so I thought it may have been the same problem. It basically doesn't run well for the majority of the time on a single high end GPU, best to wait for the next patch. I'm playing some other games and will come back to this when(if) it gets fixed.
