AC3 is a strange port

I can ramp up almost every setting with no negligible decrease in framerate. But as soon as I touch environmental quality it absolutely murders the fluidity of the game.

I guess I can deal with leaving it at default and having extreme pop-in if it means the freerunning is nice and smooth...

How is that strange? You have many more polygons on screen due to more detail/better view distance, of course you'd expect your framerate to go down. It has always been this way in just about every PC game I've played.

Usually the stuttering stops after everything gets into RAM.

I remember Gothic 3 was really bad for that, it could take several seconds of just rotating the camera before the stuttering stopped.

It's strange because it doesn't seem to be even remotely linear.

You can have normal level, which has a fair few things going on (it's not a sparse game after all, it's very populated) and get 50FPS.

You increase by one and go to high, and the draw distance is somewhat improved, but the number of things on screen increases by maybe 20% tops..? Now your framerate is somehow 25FPS.

I got 20fps in AC3. No joke, no matter the Res or Options. "Oh but you have a bad computer" I can run arma 3 fine, I clearly don't have a bad computer.

I was really disappointed with my performance in the game. Running it on medium-high settings with an overclocked i5 3570k and a 7950.

Its poorly optimized, its more CPU orientated than anything else.
