Assassin’s Creed Unity: Early User Talks About PC Performance, Low vs. Ultra Image Comparison

Assassin’s Creed Unity is apparently out in the wild for the PS4, Xbox One and now the PC. If the early impressions are anything to go by, this doesn’t sound like a good port on PC.

The game’s minimum and recommended requirements were quite hefty compared to your traditional multiplatform game. They listed Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 as the recommended graphics card and a Core i7 as the the recommended CPU. The minimum requirements were also surprisingly higher with a GTX 680 and a core i5 as the minimum required hardware. So now that the PC version is out, we are getting early impressions of the game.

First, check out a comparison between the low quality versus the ultra quality in the game.

NeoGAF user EzioCroft who shared these screenshots also talked about pop-in issues with the game. He was still having trouble getting locked 60 fps with a GTX 780 and and i7 2600k, which seem to meet the recommended requirement of the game. From what we have seen of the PS4 version of the game, the game does appear to be slightly pared back on the consoles compared to the PC. This might be a result of the huge quantity of the NPCs in the game, which can be as high as 5000 NPCs at a time.

    fuck this next gen crap. unoptimized ports regardless of how much money you spend on gear!

      You should be running around exited that you are getting the game at all. If PC gamers weren’t pirates and bought games Ubisoft wouldn’t downgrade the graphics for PC. Enjoy playing The Division on $1000 PC with the Xbox One graphics

        that’s not the real reason they’re doing that buddy.

        First, piracy is nothing for anyone, is a lie, no body ever had losses for piracy, even less the big companies, in fact they fomented piracy when they needed promotion. Second piracy isn’t a PC thing, piracy is mostly on consoles and was born on consoles. PS3 and XBox 360 games are out 5 days before the releases and some days before the PC versions on TBP. Everything you say is BULLSHIT BIG TIME.

          “Piracy was born on consoles”
          Dude, I sorry but I really don’t get it – are you joking or you were born yesterday and have no idea of what’s happening in gaming?

    low is looking better

  • Guest

    Looks better than on PS Poor which can’t run it at those settings.

  • Keep in mind he was most likely playing pre patch and not using latest game ready drivers from Nvidia which just hit today.

    • Giblet Head

      Though it is wise to be hesitant and continue to acknowledge that Ubisoft sucks the devil’s ass.

      Not sure what difference that would make on Gearnuke basic screenshot comparisons but okay.
      I can confirm that there is not a €3000 difference in those screenshots like there is in the actual hardware used for them though.
