Question Problem playing AC Origins with a GTX 1060 6GB


May 21, 2017
Hey guys, I'm having some problems playing this game. The game stutters quite a bit (nothing unplayable but still noticeable) and by doing some test I found that my graphics card was getting to 95-99% in some parts (temperature was alright). I saw some benchmarks online and there were a lot of people running the game pretty well with lower cards than the one I have. I have a GTX 1060 6GB. There were some people playing in 1444p getting higher 40-50fps with similar specs.

I'm playing with low settings in 1080p in almost everything except character detail and environment which are set to medium. Stuff that volumetric clouds (or whatever its called) and the like are set to off. My rig is pretty capable of playing every game out there (at least in medium settings) and I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, maybe missing something. Is this the experience everyone's having (similar specs)?

Here's my specs. Also, I'm running the game through my second SSD (dedicated to only play games).

Is the game installed on one of the SSDs? If it is not installed on an SSD, install it on an SSD and see if it fixes the problem. That could cause stutters since the HDD could be too slow to stream textures and stuff in the VRAM.

Furthermore, this game really likes a lot of cores, and also very very fast cores. Your six cores are fine, but the 3.2Ghz is not really the fastest. Even so this is a good processor, its still like 1.5Ghz behind some other processors on the market. I don't say that this is the problem, but it could be one of the contributing factors, since this game really need CPU power....
