Assassin's Creed Odyssey PC Performance Review

Performance Scaling - With AMD's RX 580 and Nvidia's GTX 1060

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is a relatively scalable title, with plenty of options that will allow PC users to achieve higher levels of performance on their systems. 

With both our RX 580 Strix and GTX 1060 Strix we found that both graphics cards are able to maintain 30+ FPS framerates at 1440p at High settings, with Nvidia's GTX 1060 maintaining a solid lead over its Radeon-powered counterpart. 

While this may seem odd for an AMD-branded title, it is worth noting that Assassin's Creed: Origins (Performance Review link) offered terrible performance on Radeon hardware, with Nvidia having a huge performance advantage under all game presets. This performance gap has shrunk significantly, making the game a lot more playable on Radeon hardware.

At 1440p we can see that both graphics cards are unable to reach 60FPS, even when using the game's low preset.

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
