Watch Dogs PC Version Suffering From Performance And Frame Rate Issues
Users with GTX 780 Ti’s report frame rate issues on Ultra settings among other issues.
Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs may not release “officially” until May 27th but thanks to several retailer leaks, many gamers have already been able to get their hands on the game. PC players especially have been able to test out the overall performance of the open world title and the overall optimization is looking less than rosy.
According to several users, there have been frame rate and stuttering issues galore. These issues become apparent in more action oriented scenes like vehicle chases where the frame rate drops to a point to make the game unplayable. One player running the game on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti with 6 GB RAM reported frame rate drops as low as 13 FPS on Ultra settings. Whether this is a problem with running the game on Ultra settings or a driver update that may be required remains to be seen.
Watch Dogs will be officially available in the next two days for Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Have you gotten your hands on it? Let us know in the comments.
