Assassin's Creed: Origins PC Performance Review

AMD VS Nvidia - RX 480 VS GTX 1060 - Benchmarks from Lowest to Ultra-High Settings
When looking at Assassin's Creed: Origins it is clear that the game is siding with Nvidia as its preferred GPU vendor, which is extremely disappointing given this game's AAA status. Whether AMD's performance deficit can be fixed with new drivers or a future game update remains to be seen, but you'd think the poster-child of Xbox One X support would at least try to bring some of its optimisations for AMD hardware over to the PC space.
One other thing to note here is that moving from Lowest to Low settings resulted in almost no performance difference, either pointing at an obscenely low-performance impact or what is potentially a CPU limitation. These tests were conducted on our i7 6850K-based X99 setup with CPU clock speeds of 4GHz.
