Why Assassin’s Creed: Origins Performs So Poorly On PC? Here Is The Answer

Assassin’s Creed: Origins just came out a few days back and players of the game have noticed the high CPU usage when playing the game. This is something unusual in games as most of the load is supposed to be on the GPU and not the CPU. In one of our tests, we saw the CPU usage go up to 100% and not dropping at all.

It seems that Assassin’s Creed: Origins uses VMProtect over Denuvo in order to save the game from being pirated. This could be one of the reasons why the game has not been cracked yet. From recent trends, we have seen that games can be cracked within 24 hours of their release but that has not been the case with Assassin’s Creed: Origins. The protection is using 30-40% of the CPU.

You can check out our benchmarks of Assassin’s Creed: Origins on PC here. The numbers reveal that the AMD Vega 56 beats the GTX 1070 at higher resolutions and that is one of the reasons why the GTX 1070 Ti has been released. You can learn more about the different GTX 1070 Ti variants here.

This Denuvo claim is an initial report so do take this with a grain of salt and we will only find out once the game is cracked. But if the game is cracked and the CPU usage is decreased then Ubisoft is going to be in deep shit.

Stay tuned to our site in order to learn more about the story and where events turn from here. It will be interesting to see what Ubisoft has to say about the issue. The game also has a couple of bugs that need to be patched up. In our testing of the game, we did come across some issues and you can check out our review here.
