Assassin’s Creed Syndicate PC Version Suffers from Framerate Drops on GTX 970

By   /   Nov 19, 2015

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has released on PC and it looks like the game needs some optimization. Noticeable framerate drops are seen in a video posted by YouTuber, who’s using a GTX 970, a powerful Nvidia GPU.

He is running the game on Ultra with framerate average of 30-42 in small areas with no-combat. In combat, the framerate drops to 27-28 and when there is a lot going on in the background, framerate goes down to 20-25.

While this is a red flag, we don’t know if the player is using the latest Nvidia driver, or has he installed the newly released update for Syndicate that brings the following:

  • Improved Multi-GPU functionality
  • Improved PCSS and HBAO+ render quality
  • Added VRAM Meter in Video Options
  • Added HBAO+ Ultra parameter in Graphic Options
  • Fixed various window mode issues
  • Fixed Alt+Tab issue in Fullscreen mode
  • Fixed issues on switching displays in Fullscreen
  • Fixed various render issues
  • Fixed various UI issues
  • Fixed various online issues
