    Guys, does a change anywhere between low and epic in post processing and Foliage making any sort of difference in AVG FPS for you?

    We've got work to do ;-)

    Here's the (seemingly) only graphics relevant entry from the changelog:

    So let's see how it impacts performance. Ugly mirrors but with a good view distance would float my boat if it helps performance.

    Is Changelog available already?
    But really nice. Lots of testing needed
    I do go for ugly mirrors with high distance.

    Here's some results of runs where the only thing I changed was mirror settings:

    250m, epic
    2018-12-12 20:43:23 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3258 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 54.300 - Min: 43 - Max: 74

    180m, epic
    2018-12-12 20:47:27 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3265 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 54.417 - Min: 44 - Max: 74

    180m, high
    2018-12-12 20:41:03 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3490 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 58.167 - Min: 47 - Max: 78

    180m, low
    2018-12-12 20:37:44 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3478 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 57.967 - Min: 46 - Max: 78

    20m, low
    2018-12-12 20:50:09 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3570 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 59.500 - Min: 48 - Max: 82

    It seems like only "epic" hits performance harder than any other setting. 180m high and low are practically the same. The difference between the lowest possible setting and the highest possible setting seems to be smaller than before. I remember a delta of at least 10 FPS from low to epic. Now it's just 5.2 AVG FPS.

    This split is very welcome. I'll be running 180m, high.

    Table needs to be updated due to this setting change. I'll do that, soon. You can start uploading results if you want.

    Just FYI, it can also be opened in Excel 365, at least it worked for me. Just click Yes to Recover/Repair and it will display fine. Will test Excel 2016 when I get home.

    Thanks but you forgot your settings ;-)

    @Boyracer good settings and result! Does Foliage even make a difference? For me there was zero difference between low and epic.

    Sorry, same as in the GPU benchmark thread, cokcpit view with 45° FOV, everything maxed out + motion blur enabled. Should I post it again with the settings I'm normally using?

    edit: okay I ran it again just to be sure

    Aaaand another one to see how to get an acceptable framerate. Toned down a few settings, FOV still 45, and I let the rest on default.
    It's good during gameplay, however my system bites the dust on replays :confused:

    Nice. Try PP on Epic and Mirror to high. There should be no difference in FPS.

    Is there any particular Nvidia driver version that maximizes ACC GPU performance?

    In general I would say that the latest driver would be your best bet.

    I'm unable to get back to this result:

    2018-12-12 20:41:03 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3490 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 58.167 - Min: 47 - Max: 78

    It's from the 12th of December right after 0.4 was released. I don't know since when the results got worse but now I can't get better AVG FPS than 56.
    I checked for usage with Afterburner and noticed higher values on the CPU and - for the first time during these tests - usage below 100 % on my GPU. Does anybody else have the same experience? Even after gaining another 8 % FPS in the GPU benchmark, the benchmark results here remain worse than before.

    Ok so it seems that I'm right on the edge of a CPU or RAM bottleneck here and depending on some hard to grasp factors it's either just below the threshold or just above the threshold. Makes it quite hard to troubleshoot.

    I just set the PC to "game boost" in Bios, which sets max clock to 4.5 GHz and RAM to 3200 MHz (although CPU can handle only 2400 MHz RAM). I got 59 FPS AVG after that.

    I'm waiting for 16 GB RAM to be delivered...will tweak some more with that and update the table afterwards.

    Lol, sorry for spamming my own thread :-D

    So it's down to RAM speed, as @f_deutsch had already told me in a PM.

    Here's my best result with RAM at 3600:

    2019-01-10 14:27:51 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3609 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 60.150 - Min: 47 - Max: 88

    And this is with RAM at 2400:

    2019-01-10 14:13:05 - AC2-Win64-Shipping
    Frames: 3308 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 55.133 - Min: 45 - Max: 76

    5 FPS AVG is mighty impressive. The RAM speed seems to be a bottleneck for the CPU.
