Tomb Raider & ACS with a GTX 1080

Here is another batch of GTX 1080 videos with this time Rise of the Tomb Raider and Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. As you'll see, maxing out these games does not always guarantee a steady framerate, especially when you start to go above 1080p. If you don't mind a few drops here and there, you can enjoy Lara's latest adventure at 1440p, but the rise in resolution (or video settings) is much more impactful on Ubisoft's title. Again, it means you will have to choose between image fidelity or resolution if what you care the most (and you should) is framerate.
Note: The settings at the beginning of the first TR video are maxed out at 1440p with SMAA. The settings at the beginning of the second are the same as those at the end of the first.

Our videos of Jack the Ripper

Assassin's Creed: Syndicate's first DLC has been available for a couple of days now and here are a few videos taken from the very beginning of the adventure. Set 20 years after the events of the main game, this new plot revolves around the mystery of the infamous Jack the Ripper, a dangerous serial killer who terrorized Whitechapel in the late 19th century. Evie Frye is back with a few wrinkles but she's still as agile as a cat, which is obviously very convenient to traverse the city. She's gained a few tricks with the addition of a fear mechanic she can now use to indimitade her enemies.

Assassin's Creed PC videos

As we supposed when we reviewed the PS4 version of Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, you'll need a powerful PC if you want to play with all graphical options maxed out. To get a more or less steady 60 fps, we had to lower down the shadows to high (forget PCS and PCSS Ultra unless you don't mind frame drops), use MSAA2x+FXAA and HBAO+ (HBAO+ Ultra kills the framerate). If you want to see how the game performs with those settings, check out our four 1080p videos.
Note: Contrary to what Mirillis Action! says, some cutscenes runs at 30 fps. Those are obviously videos and not real time.
Rig we used to capture the game: i5 4670K @ 4.1 GHz, 8 Go RAM, Windows 10, SLI Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 Gigabyte OC. Today's drivers installed.
