Assassins creed black flag hyper threading

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So both me and a friend of mine had been having FPS drops in AC:BF. I noticed that during times of heavy foliage or complex towns my #1 cpu thread would go to 100% and my GPU usage and FPS would drop. This game obviously has threading issues. I turned off hyper threading to give the 1 core it was beating the **** out of more power without it being divided into a 2nd virtual processor: and the results were fantastic. In a town on top of a look out point with hyper threading i was getting 28-32 FPS, this was one of the worst spots i had seen in the game. With hyper threading off i was at the 60ish FPS cap.

Just thought i would put this out there for anyone else playing the game having issues. My system is fairly high end and it was really pissing me off with the FPS dips. I have played all the AC games and i know the others were not written well for multicore cpus but this one is bad, at-least when you crank the details up.
