Anyone get better performance in AC:B than AC2?

AC:B runs like a dream, AC2 seemed to have a good framerate, but it wasn't upto par with AC:B. I'd occasionally dip to around 25-30 in high population areas for a moment or so in AC2, but I haven't ran into this problem in AC:B. The graphics options are more customizable than in AC2 as well.

It seems they optimized the game for PC's quite a bit during the delay on the PC version. They also remapped all the keys to look like it wasn't a Console port (for example you have "Space" under your sprint button, and E on your Eagle vision). Quicktime events also show which button and mouse button to press.

At the start of AC2, I missed a few conversation quicktime events simply because I fumbled around and forgot which key was which.

Anyone else seeing increased performance?

My cutscenes are somewhat laggy in ACB (the cutscene video got slower, so the dialogue/sound tend to skip ahead), while I didn't have such problems in AC2

Other than that, my game runs just fine, even when fighting lots of enemies at the same time

For me AC:B runs significantly worse than AC 2 but i've heard the game has some issues with ATI cards.

It must not be all ATI cards, as I'm running a HD 4850 with 512MB vram.

At first Brotherhood wasn't running as well as i thought.

I took down shadows to one before the last, no change in visuals and it runs flawlessly on my 4670HD :)

Give it a shot!

I have an 4890, and it runs fine maxed out at 1920x1200.

And I never had any issues with the previous Assassin's Creed games.

I was just stating this exact thing on another topic. They ported Brotherhood WAY WAY WAYYY better than how they did AC2. I'm loving the flawless gameplay, except the mouse acceleration but since it isn't an FPS, I'm fine with that.
