Assassin's Creed: Origins PC Performance Review

1440p Assassin's Creed: Origins Benchmarks

In our 1440p tests, only the GTX 1080 was able to achieve a constant 60+ average framerate, though again we see that our minimum framerates are sitting at the 50-53FPS area, just like the 1080p results of our high-end Nvidia GPUs. 

With even higher-end graphical presets available it makes us wonder who exactly they are made for, aside from owners of future GPUs or obscenely high-end systems. Yes, we have plenty of headroom for higher-end visuals on our GTX 1080 if we settle for a lower 30-ish FPS framerate, though I certainly would prefer a faster framerate of around 60 FPS and its benefits over some extra visual yum-yum.

Apparently the horrible CPU usage is caused by UBI doubling up on DRM. Pretty shady move imo passing the buck to the consumer by upping the game requirements, rather than, stopping piracy themselvesQuote

DRM has virtually no impact on performance. DRM runs at launch. It would only extend loading times if that.

Something like Punkbuster(older BF games) could cause performance issues. But that is because it runs in real-time and is constantly on your internet connection. Anti cheat software like this can cause an impact. DRM won't. I'm sure there is some crap DRM out there that will. But reality is any big AAA company or half caring indie Dev would use a good DRM.
The performance issues is simply due to optimizationQuote

But still, if Ubi is having their own DRM, which they have a right to, then performance issues are on them. Still, even a 8700k is only being used 50% according to a person in that thread. So it's not CPU bound.Quote
