Uh, the game isn't even going to be released for another 10 days, and it's from Ubisoft, so yes I imagine it will be coded like garbage and chock full of bugs. How is that AMD's fault?

No, it did not.  Neither did AC3.

what i see there is a 770 outperforming a 7970ghz (my card) considering they are similar gpus.

One more thing, (although regular readers are very much accustomed to this) we are late again with the benchmark since we waited for AMD to relase a new driver that would fix the in game performance which was, well bad. Which isn't something to be amazed about, since this is a game that was sponsored by Nvidia. On the same day when AMD released the new Catalyst 13.11 Beta 9.4 , Ubisoft has also released a patch update for the game it self, and when we ran the game with AMD cards the performance improvements were quite noticeable. We cannot say for sure which factor enabled the game to run smoothly with AMD cards, since AMD did not mention anything about a performance boost in AC 4 in their release notes.


No, what you see is a nVidia card in a poorly coded nVidia sponsored game getting 4FPS more than an AMD card. And when did 4FPS become "so much better"?

So would you say, that provided watch dogs is well coded my 7970ghz will perform as well as a gtx 770?

Assuming it is well coded and nVidia doesn't persuade Ubisoft to not give AMD everything it needs to get the best performance possible.
