I don't think you will be any happier with the turdware that Ubisoft has put out again. AC3 is even worst optimized than Absolution. Mid 30s on my rig the moment you hit Boston. Again an achingly beautiful game ruined by shoddy coding.

Glad I am not the only one having issues. I have been looking forward to playing this game for a while as I was expecting it as a Christmas gift. It's a great game but I was surprised when my almost brand new gaming rig couldn't score me an average FPS over 30 in Benchmark mode. My rig is as follows:

3.8GHz 6-Core AMD Bulldozer
16GB DDR3 RAM @2133MHz
NVidia GTX 660

I had been wanting to upgrade to a second graphics card since building the machine a month ago and Hitman was the push for me to do it, I ordered it Boxing Day and received it today. I got wonderfully excited, carefully but eagerly fitted my new card, affixed the SLI cable, ran the Nvidia and ASUS Control Panels, both picked up the new card, started the benchmark... and it's the same damn framerate.

Utterly utterly gutted and hope this is resolved soon so I can really get into the game properly frown.gif

I just completed Absolution on very high/ultra custom settings (basically, motion blur/ depth of field makes me feel sick so i turned it off completely) with no slowdowns at all, 1920x1080/5ghz 2500k/ stock msi 580 twin frozr.

Cant believe you get issues on your rig!

Now that my cards are working in SLI (faulty bridge) it's running better at approx 48FPS average during benchmark. Apparently I'm now being bottlenecked by my crappy CPU so I need to work on that some more.

The game is incredibly CPU dependent owing to its console roots. The engine, glacier 2, is incredible and is able to render heavily populated scenes with aplomb. Better than anything out there and even wayyyy better than AC3 in terms of showing hundreds of characters in screen. The only issue seems to be the coding being CPU dependent. I bet if they were to offload some tasks such as reflections etc to the GPU the performance would scale up nicely.
