    Ultra textures is a no go for 2GB cards..

    I could play AC4 5 days before its official release.
    I even checked with the support before doing so, they told me it was perfectly OK as long as it's a legit copy.

    As it should. 2GB is a ridiculously low amount of VRAM.
    My next GPU should feature at least 4GB.

    High textures should fit within 2GB I hope.

    4GB cards are barely enough for ultra textures.

    ? I'm sorry but, afaik 2GB is still good enough for most games, it's not "ridiculously low" as you state, it's not 4GB, I know, but it's by far better than the real ridiculously low VRAM: 1GB.

    Good point, that's why it's the highest setting, you don't really need it, but the enthusiast level gamer would love to enable it, you know, e-boner.

    Is the vsync triple buffered or is it like AC4? CPU usage?

    well to be perfectly honest, I can't even tell the difference between ultra and high textures. Maybe someone can post some comparisons. But I'm just not seeing it.

    shadows and shaders are another vram hog. Adjust those as needed.

    Typical Ubisoft. Everything plays just fine indoors but once you go outside, performance goes in the toilet lol.

    There are good looking parts and plain boring parts, nothing like they made out in the trailers, not on AMD anyway

    Hopefully. :)


    The thing that surprises me is Ubi didn't lock the fps to 60. I was fully expecting them to do so.

    I don't think this will solve anything. Besides, I have not heard of a day-one patch for the PC version.

    I'd place performance somewhere between GTA4 and AC4.. It's not terrible but it isn't great either. I can't maintain 60FPS to save my life on high settings.

    The game seems to make smartest use of ressources than AC4.
    From the various reports I'm seeing multicore CPUs are put to good use. :)

    No PC version is perfect of course.
