Assassin’s Creed Mirage PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide

CPU Performance Scaling

CPU performance – Does Assassin’s Creed Mirage benefit from high core count CPUs?

Below, we have tested Assassin’s Creed Mirage with an i9-13900K processor and an Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti graphics card at 1080p Ultra settings. To make the game as CPU-limited as possible, we have also set DLSS to its performance mode.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a cross-generation title. This means that this game is designed to run on the now super-old CPUs within Xbox One and PS4 consoles. With this in mind, Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s low CPU requirements make a lot of sense, and its minimal CPU performance scaling beyond 6 cores.

Dropping our i9-13900K from its default 24-core configuration results in minimal performance drops until we have fewer than 6 P-cores to run the game on. By limiting our CPU to being a quad-core, we see game performance drop significantly, but still remain above 60 FPS. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is overly hard on modern CPUs. In fact, this came is limited more by memory performance than raw CPU power.
