In a recent press release, Ubisoft announced they they will be working alongside NVIDIA, through the NVIDIA GameWorks program, on 4 of their upcoming titles: Assassin’s Creed Unity, The Crew, Tom Clancy’s: The Division, and Far Cry 4.
Although the partnership will bring features such as TXAA anti-aliasing (more recently featured in Watch_Dogs), soft shadows, and HBAO+ to these titles, it’s worth noting that AMD has cited the GameWorks program as the primary culprit behind performance and optimization issues experienced by AMD users who purchase these titles. More recently, AMD has pointed to the performance of Watch_Dogs on AMD systems, as a prime example of the GameWorks program’s restrictive nature.
Exactly how these titles will pan out for AMD users is still up in the air, and we’ll just have to wait and see how they perform once they are released.
