so started Assassin's Creed Valhalla this morning

performance characteristics on my PC are...interesting

running at 1440p on a i7-8086K and a 2080Ti, I am GPU bound at graphics presets - ultra high, very high, high and also adaptive

I am playing with adaptive quality with a target of 60FPS

another thing - the FPS limit option in settings does absolutely nothing, the game doesn't register the option change

the screenshot here is the benchmark results with adaptive quality turned on


its interesting because going from ultra high down to high preset didn't change anything about GPU usage in the benchmarks, utilization was steady at 95% throughout the running time of the benchmark

as for CPU utilization, about 50% across all my cores, this game is on Ubisoft's Anvil engine and uses multiple cores quite well

Show thread

tbh, I really wanna know why I'm being GPU bound in this game and especially why it doesn't change across settings presets

gonna need the Digital Foundry analysis of the PC version for this one

Show thread

@packetcat sounds like a lot of those settings are just... for show?

@Mainebot yeah maybe, gonna need somebody over at Digital Foundry to do the deep dive testing

these Ubisoft games are coming in hot at launch, bugs abound
