Following the announcement of the official requirements for PC, Ubisoft has also detailed the NVIDIA Gameworks graphics features that have been implemented in the Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – NVIDIA Gameworks Graphics detailed options; Also available for AMD GPUs


Like in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Unity, the Syndicate is also featuring TXAA, PCSS, HBAO +. The green team has added support for GeForce Experience and G-Sync monitors in this new iteration of the series.

What is striking is for this time is that, the graphic options like HBAO + and PCSS will also work with AMD hardware. It remains to be seen how it will affect the performance of GPUs for the red team. Below you can see the functions of graphics options from NVIDIA Gameworks:

  • HBAO + – deeper and more realistic shadows. More ambient occlusion.
  • TXAA – NVIDIA Exclusive. Temporal antialiasing reduces the “flickering” of edges on the camera panning. Higher performance with cinematic quality.
  • PCSS – Real-time soft shadows that fit the camera zoom percentage. Softer, more natural edges.

The high-end PCs can also use the MSAA (Multisample Anti-Aliasing, which was not present in Assassin’s Creed Rogue). There will also be support of multi-monitors (Eyefinity AMD / NVIDIA Surround 3: 1) from the first day and multi-GPU configurations (SLI and Crossfire).

Hopefully this time Ubisoft achieved a better optimization than Assassin’s Creed Unity. Below you can see the System requirements of the game to run on the PC.
