    same, i take my bench soon, but those results seems very wrong, probably hilbert gonna bench the game and other site, if that repeats itself, then nvidia need a driver update to fix it.

    Kepler is far (cry) behind maxwell,
    980 vs 780ti - 97 vs 81 fps,

    the same with AMD cards

    770 vs 280X (53 vs 72 fps)

    Is Nv are not optimising drivers for kepler cars ?

    Fecking Uplay piece of sh!t.

    The game downloaded just fine but when I hit the Play button I got stuck on Synchronizing achievements since "Uplay connection down blabla". I force quit the damn thing and now I cannot re-open it.

    wait for other benches, sometimes it not right here... if that repeats then probably nvidia will respond.
    Then again they might use nvidia exclusive features, the godrays and that might do it.

    I'm having exactly the same issue with this kind of appearing ghost images when using SMAA. And as you said, the only way so far to get rid of this is to use TXAA or MSAA. And I agree, both are not ideal no doubt. I also tried to use the FC3 SLI bits and it's the same, but these bits are obviously much better in terms of scaling.

    So there is no way of getting rid of the black bars on 16x10 aspect ratio?

    Just wondering, is it people on win 7 getting the stuttering which is by the way 99% better without AA enabled?

    Win 8.1 and I just restarted the game and bam....flickering everywhere and no matter which setting I'm editing it stays the same. Will try to go back to the original SLI bits. Very annoying so far.

    Run better with Win7 without flickering or ghost image.

    This issue happens only with SMAA ingame enable, so if you turn off AA you dont have any problem.

    i had same issue when i was running with single card, like i just detailed in driver section.
    the mild lighting flicker once game world opens but lasts few secs if that.
    new profile works for me.

    My single 280X everything maxed pushing nice 50-60fps. New 14.11.2 drivers works for me. Stuttering is kinda present but playable. My friend with his fairly but not much slower 670GTX is not even playable.
