I installed my 2080 super tonight and updated my driver (391.xx) to the latest (441.2) and in every game I have started I get about 30-40 more fps than with the 1080sc2, except AC:Odyssey.

For some reason when everything first loads (actual game-play not loading screen) the fps counter is at 95-100 then widdles down to 56-60 after a few seconds and just stays there. The way it would if V-sync were enabled (its not).

I am playing on a 1440p 144hz g-sync monitor.
Strange it would only be this game but after looking through all the settings I couldn't find a culprit.
 
Don’t know about worse. Even a 2080ti benchmarks at 70fps in ultra paired with a 8700k. A 1080 benchmarks at 49. Have you ran the benchmark or just looked at what FPS you see? Only issue I could think would be driver optimization. Maybe the latest driver isn’t as optimized for AC origins. Have you tried previous drivers?

I was just playing it, but after restarting steam I now stay right between 65-80fps. I did the benchmark and I got 65fps, with all maxed settings except shadows on very high. I have found the in game fps is usually 5-10 higher than the benchmark.
Still though I played 200 hours on this game with the 1080 and 65-75 was about what I always saw...
But I think it may be the driver, when I read your mention of that I remembered why I kept the old driver I had; because in this game I got significantly worse performance after upgrading, so I rolled it back.

When you said "updated my driver (391.xx) to the latest (441.2)", that means you removed the old 391.xx using DDU and then installed the 441.2 after it restarted, correct?
Yes, downloaded new driver, restarted in safe mode, removed old driver with DDU, shut down, installed GPU, started up normally, installed new driver.
