My System Specs

Default Gaming performance

Hey all, I have Assassin's Creed 4. I'm getting some janky framerate issues with it. I also have reshade and sweetfx installed for it.

What do you guys think is the most likely culprit of the issue? Bad optimization / bad port, the fact that I have sweetfx installed? I know my rig is definitely nowhere near the fanciest but it is pretty advanced at the very least.

I have even tried downgrading some of the graphics options. It did improve framerates, but I see anything below 60 as subpar. Is there anything I can do? Maybe I should uninstall sweetfx and see how it does?

Any advice / help is appreciated.

Only thing i can think of is to upgrade your video card drivers. If that doesn't help, try goggling your issue. Since this is AC4, there are a lot of issues right across the board.

You shouldn't be having issues. AC IV is pretty solid now, its Unity that is having bugs. Update drivers (as suggested already). Otherwise, do you have MSI afterburner installed (or something else similar)? If so, make sure the program is running, play the game for a bit, and then exit out and take a look at GPU usage/gpu freq/vram usage and see what's happening (post a screen shot if you like).

AC IV "Black Flag" ran fine for me on a i7 3820 and a GTX 670 at 1080p60 over six months ago just using the recommended Geforce experience settings which were very near to max if memory serves. I would be trying it without reshade and sweetfx.
