Assassin’s Creed 3
Our Assassin’s Creed 3 test involves a 60 second run through the Boston Harbor. Each run took a similar route, and was repeated five times. When a representative number of frames was found, we used one of those to evaluate the performance you see below.
When using a GeForce card, you have the option of using TXAA, which we did for this test. First up here’s the average FPS, for those who like to keep things simplified and familiar:
MSI’s “GAMING MODE” doesn’t offer much of a boost over stock in this game, but our top overclock gave us a good boost. Let’s take a closer look by considering actual frame times, as recorded by FRAPS:
All three clock speeds offer consistent performance, with our overclock rarely ever going above 16.7 ms. This means it should easily give you a steady 60 FPS when Vsync is enabled.
There’s nothing much to say when looking at the top 1% of slowest frame times. Occasionally it does dip over 60 fps, but only a few times per minute.
