Watchdogs Benchmark on My RIG!
Written by: TheGamingKing - 15:16 May-31-2014

Everyone is talking about Watchdogs so i decided to make a Benchmark blog Of it on My Upper class Medium-End Rig.

Here are the Display Settings in the Game:

And here are the Main Graphics Settings:

All Settings are Set to High except Shader and Level of Detail (LoD)..

So here are the Results:

I benchmarked twice: First one is in the Building during First Mission and the Second is one Roaming around Chicago As u can see above i got average around 40 FPS!

I using the latest amd 14.6 Beta drivers and did some tweaks with "Gamerprofile.xml".

Now, i don't think that the Game is that Worst optimized as the people are talking.. I'm setisfied with my settings and the FPS! :D :)

Comment Your experience with Watchdogs and don't forget to Click On the Poll and if u have any questions, Fell Free to Ask! I'm Always there for my Fellow Gaming G'ders.. :)

Happy Gaming!

Runs mighty fine I say.
I'm not much interested in it, but I may get it sometime or the other to benchmark it myself :)

that result is very bad, that's almost worst than me. Reset your Graphics Card to the stock clocks and see how it goes.

had the same rig as yours (7790 oc-ed a 1150/1600) . texture medium. level of detail ultra. shadow medium. reflection medium. AO off. motion blur off. DoF on. water high. shader high. i get around 35-40fps. Reason for setting: AO is off cause i thought it was purely for some shadow and i dont really need it, motion blur kind of make me sick, and i prefer level of detail to be richer.

sorry my mistake. i thought it was the same dual-x. mine was only 1 gb. thanks for the remind. but i dont think it would make much of a difference right unless i get texture to high?

Optimization on the game is good! sorry guys but you have to learn what your PC can run and how much it can run it! maxed out with TXAAx4 and vsync and without the OC I get 50-60fps,if you have something like hd7770 or gtx 670 and you try to max out the game then yes you will have low fps and issues! [..]

are you listening to yourself? This game is NVIDIA optimized and you have a $600 worth card. Yet, you can't pull MSAA x4, let alone MSAAx8 and even then you get 50-60 FPS, not 60 steady FPS. How is that good optimization?

andI can say that its well optimized as nvidia recommends for my card AA: Temporal SMAA and I use TXAAx4 with no fps drops :) (I am uploading a video I can share with you as well)

are you telling me that I lower end gpu has to run the game on full?? that's not possible you know :P pc is not a console that can play every game on full you have what you pay for, so a lower end gpu (not low end just lower than mine) can play the game the same way it's normal :P

I agree with Pip a $600 GPU doing that is no big deal..Not counting the cost of rest of your components..THe optimization is really bad and cards like GTX760 should be hitting 40+fps on ultra settings in this game given its quite average visuals.Becasue thats where the most of the market is.

a gtx760 runs the game on ultra with 40+fps but with SMAA instead of 4xTXAA, as txaa is very demanding! visuals are good! not the best but above average.

@ Wintersun
How do you get your min at 50 fps? People with a 780 TI can't even do this.
I can't even do that with high settings no AA. It still dips to 40 fps in a lot of areas.
This game is NOT optimized!

I know you have an i7 CPU, but it doesn't make any difference according to many benchmarks. Is there something that you change in the .xml file?

Optimization is bad... HD 7790 manages similar results in Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4 on high with no AA at 1600x900...

I know enough about building my own pc to my needs never done any benchmark work but from seeing your results that's a very nice pc and ive read about the optimization problems with the game but it looks like you got it pretty well set.

Hey Buddy.
Very nice but that's because you have the Level of Detail at Medium. Try raising that or putting even MSAAx2 and see what happens :P
and the wost part is that the game isn't that visually impressive. I think even Skyrim has better detailed textures.
