Assassin's Creed Odyssey PC Performance Review

1080p Performance - Benchmark Results

Here is where we can see exactly how demanding Assassin's Creed: Odyssey can be, with even Nvidia's mighty GTX 1080 being unable to achieve solid 60+ framerates when using the game's high preset. Even at these settings both the graphics card and CPU are under heavy loads, with some areas of the game being CPU limits while others are GPU limited. 

Thankfully everything over our ASUS RX 580 Strix and  ASUS GTX 1060 Strix is able to achieve a solid 40+ FPS framerate, which is good news for those with variable refresh rate monitors. Those who don't, and dislike tearing will need to lock the game to half of their PC's refresh rate, which in most cases will be 30FPS in order to achieve steady performance. 60FPS will be beyond the reach of those without ultra-high-end PCs. 

Moving down to our R9 380 and GTX 960 graphics cards, our main problem is that they are both VRAM limited. We will look into game settings for these graphics cards on page 14.

They didn't even bother to optimize the game. You can easily tell even without a benchmark simply due to the fact that they expect you to run it at 30fps on a machine that would run almost every other game at 60. And it doesn't really look any better than Syndicate or Unity which ran much better. Since the dawn of time their biggest issue has been CPU optimization. Remember Assassin's Creed 3 and how horrible the performance was due to poor CPU utilization as soon as you got to Boston? And even now, years later, it's like they never bothered to fix the underlying issue with their engine and CPU performance.Quote

TBH, when I get back to playing this game I will limit the framerate to 30 and play it at 4K on the GTX 1080 with custom settings with a gamepad.

It's a shame that recent Assassin's Creed games have so many issues on PC, as I personally think that they have taken the gameplay in a good direction. Its very Witcher 3-like, but I am enjoying it so far.

While this game is super demanding you guys shouldn't expect this game in any future GPU reviews. The benchmark is too inconsistent to get my approval. If this is addressed it could go into the maybe pile, but don't hold your breath on that.Quote

Yeah the last good AC game was Black Flag for performance.
Half the reason why I just play on console is the performanceQuote

Consoles have the "It just works" factor. I can see why that is appealing for a lot of games. I have a PS4 Pro, but I only really use it for console exclusives.

I really hope that Ubisoft can fix the CPU issues in this game, as it is ridiculous how bad this game can run. It's hard to believe that Ghost Recon Wildlands and For Honor use the same engine.

TBH if I worked for AMD I would be ashamed to have my brand logo in this game. While it isn't Arkham Knight level of bad, it isn't exactly a badge of honour.Quote
