is 900p good enough?

Assassin's Creed Unity will run at 900p/30fps on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Ubisoft has confirmed, with the publisher opting to aim for platform parity to avoid discussion over any differences in performance. Gladly the PC version will not be met by such restrictions

 

"We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff," said Ubisoft's senior producer Vincent Pontbriand.  "Technically we're CPU-bound, the GPUs are really powerful, obviously the graphics look pretty good, but it's the CPU [that] has to process the AI, the number of NPCs we have on screen, all these systems running in parallel."

 

The claims that both the XBOX ONE and the PS4 are CPU limited at the same detail levels is very likely given both us a nigh identical AMD 8-core Jaguar/kabini CPU running at very similar clock speeds. At present we do not know how this affects the PC requirements for playing this the game.

 

"We were quickly bottlenecked by that and it was a bit frustrating, because we thought that this was going to be a tenfold improvement over everything AI-wise, and we realised it was going to be pretty hard. It's not the number of polygons that affect the framerate. We could be running at 100fps if it was just graphics, but because of AI, we're still limited to 30 frames per second."

 

 

In a later statement Ubisoft said that despite having the same resolution and framerate that both consoles are equally taxed by Unity and neither version is being held back by the other. 

 

"To set the record straight, we did not lower the specs for Assassin's Creed Unity to account for any one system over the other."

 

So if you want to play Assassins creed at 1080p or higher resolutions and framerates above 30 you will have to buy the PC version. Given the consoles have such restricted performance It will be hard to guess at how powerful your PC will need to be to play this upcoming title at maximum settings, particularly in the CPU department.

 

Assassin's Creed Unity launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 14 and you can discuss your thoughts on this upcoming release on the OC3D Forums.

Cant believe they wanted to achieve f*cking "console padory" as they call it. They want the game to run the same on the Xbox One and PS4, even though the PS4 is faster! They say this is to avoid arguments about which console is better, but we all know the truth. The dumbf*cks over at Ubisoft are pulling another "Watchdogs", but for console...Quote

welll if they are blaming the cpu for the resolutions then it reall makes no difference if its ps4 or xbox. if it was gpu bound then the ps4 should be better. but cpu bound?? pretty much the same..

the real truth of the matter is. neither console is good enough to be "next gen" or atleast they wont have the longevity that previous gens had.
not going to start the pc vs console thing, but honestly these consoles needed a better back bone to start it "cpu" those little cpu's they put in them may sound good with extra cores. but really they dont match up and a fx 6200 was probably a better cpu to use letalone the MANY other better gaming cpus they could have used..

I guess they were worried about heat again so went for low power.. but they should have just realized if they needed the things to last they had to give it the hardware so it could.Quote

I guess they would have been able to let it run on 972p on the ps4 or something crooked like that, but then they would have been flamed for these stupid Resolution numbers, although "Resolution is just a number"Quote
