This is pretty interesting. This Benchmark 3D site did a tech analysis of Assassin's Creed 3, and found the CPU optimization to be really crappy.
Hopefully Ubisoft will release a patch. While it's playable on my computer now, it's definitely not up to what I feel my PC should be able to do.
Yeah. I found this game to be ABSOLUTELY terrible at optomization.
It can barely render fields with spare houses without dropping FPS highly. A quick boost of my GPU rectified that above the 32FPS line but none the less, the stuff it is rendering is simpler than what is in Skyrim.
