Assassin's Creed: Origins Update 1.03 CPU Retest

Benchmarks and Conclusion

Assassin's Creed: Origin's first major update will arrive on November 7th with free Trials of the Gods mode

Benchmarks

When looking at Ubisoft's latest version of Assassin's Creed: Origins it is obvious that the game performs better in CPU-limited scenarios, especially when players are using CPUs with four or less total cores/threads. 

Both in the game's built-in benchmark tool and in gameplay these performance boosts were noticeable, allowing taxing areas like the city of Alexandria play much more smoothly, especially when playing on our four core, four thread CPU configuration. 

All configurations that we have tested have seen an increase in minimum framerate, making the game appear a lot smoother as a whole in demanding areas, making the game much more playable.

Conclusion

It is clear that over the past week Ubisoft has been working hard to increase the performance of Assassin's Creed: Origins from a CPU perspective, giving a clear performance boost over the game's day-1 version. 

This should set aside some concerns that these CPU issues are due to Ubisoft's DRM solution, as it appears that a game patch has addressed the issue and it appears that the game's DRM is still active. 

Assassin's Creed: Origins still requires a powerful CPU to run well, but at least the game runs a lot better than before, with our quad-core/thread configuration seeing an increase in average and minimum framerate of over 20%, allowing the game to run noticeably faster throughout large sections of the game.  

We will be updating our Assassin's Creed Performance Review to make a note of these changes. Let's hope that Ubisoft continues to address this game's issues with future patches, especially when it comes to using Radeon Hardware.

See people it wasn't the DRM after all. That's why you don't listen to a random DRM cracker on the internet about anything.

Massive performance increases in a week seems odd. They should have been in the game in the first place for such big increases to come so fast. Now they need to work with AMDQuote

Nice. Just needs some optimisation for Radeon users and probably another Radeon driver release before I think about purchasing it though. Hopefully by the time I upgrade to Ryzen this Black Friday it'll all be good.
Kind of interested to know how much the DRM does actually impact performance still.Quote

DRM won't have any effect. This game just had the issues of a not finished optimization launch that isn't all to uncommon in gaming these days.Quote
