    Performance is good or acceptable regarding its an open world game, the sutters are the problem.

    I can see that medium textures look like crap. But i dont see major diff. between high and ultra. Thing is that despite that on high they require a 2gb card, when high selected it still stutters as if the card runs out of vram.

    If they can fix this, i think i will play it on current hardware.

    I assume that is Uplay rather than Steam and Uplay? Well, I got the boxed PC version for just £24.75 from GameSeek, which is less than the GMG version with 20/25% off. It's the only reason I bought it as I am getting the PS4 version as well next week.

    Forgot to mention that I experienced some weird darkened/black texture issues while playing this game for over 5 hours yesterday. It was very noticeable on faces but there was a shadow type artifact crawling across the ground a few feet away as well across certain ground textures. I am using the 337.81 betas and have nothing forced in the game profile. I wonder if this is because I'm playing on Ultra textures with HIgh HBAO+ and TXAAx4 with a graphics card that only has 3 GB of VRAM? My guess is that some textures are getting lost or corrupted over long play sessions. Of course, it could be caused by me taking screenshots with MSI Afterburner as well, possibly. Maybe it's even a driver issue?

    Anyone else seen anything like this?

    Yeah sounds like you're running out of VRAM. What resolution do you play at? TXAA 4x is equivalent to MSAA 8x in getting rid of jaggies, but it gets rid of temporal aliasing as well so it uses a lot of VRAM.

    Dont bump yourselves with 3gb vram, even that 3gb is not enough with this game.

    U can play proper on high textures and maybe some 2xMSAA. If you dont want a bit of stutter. So even your cards are in the knees with this game, regarding only vram usage.

    With this said, now we can tell for sure what maxwell cards will have, mainstream and below 4gb and high-end 6gb.

    For AMD users who have 3gb of vram game does not stutter on everything ultra 1080p and temporal smaa ,the only problem with AMD users is low frames.

    Yep, I see shadows of things on various textures, sort of like soft burn-in images of where previous textures were, I am glad I am not the only one, as I thought my setup is overheating etc. How do I make this stop ? I am guessing its because of Ultra.

    On a R9 290 here with 12gb ram and on just high settings when I'm driving around I'll get plenty of dips to around 18 fps averaging 30-40fps....not a good experience at all. Indoors though its always around 70fps even on ultra.

    I'm really hoping AMD comes up with some drivers that fix this

    Bbbbbbut what about my 1,5gb GTX580? :<
    Thought this is gonna last for year or something more but with these massive requirements I guess no more good looking games for me.

    fully maxed out takes 6 GB on 1080p? if true, then ONLY titan can run it due to vram. but hard to believe to it... either that or bad optimization. or anything in between, i guess tmw we find out via nvidia driver.

    Nah somethings wrong there, I get around 3.4GB maxed out even with 8xMSAA

    The only way I could force it to use all 4GB vRAM was to enable SuperSampling in the config file

    im playing with textures on high and the rest at ultra and i get a solid 50 fps, anything above that is a stuttering mess.

    some textutes are just bad, i wish we could controll the ammount of mesh quality but ubisoft never had that option anyway we can see that city from miles away, in gta 4 even with draw distance at ultra it would jaggy a bit.

    Well, clearly bad optimization.
