As Ubisoft claimed, the scheduler used for the rendering was 'rewritten from the ground up and in AC4, the engine will use all the cores it needs until it sees that using more cores brings no more gain.' Well, it appears that information was incorrect as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is plagued by performance issues and runs identical on tricore and quadcore CPUs. Not only that but the performance difference between a dualcore and a quadcore is around 5fps at best."

There's a new driver out today (381.82) that's actually optimised for AC4, even without that driver the game runs amazingly well for me, far better than AC3 ever ran.

i7 3770k 3.4GHz
GTX670x2 (Even with 1 it runs very well on 1080p, FXAA with everything else at max)
