I dont believe you can run it at const 60 fps on max,this is horrible optimized game.There may be drops even to 45 fps at some areas.

I have a ****ing GTX 1070 its one of the best graphic cards on the market right know. As well i have an Intel Core i7 6700K 4.0 GHz and 16 GB DDR4 RAM. Thee Game runs on 40-50 FPS on not even all maxed out. I can play The Witcher 3 with Nvidia Hairworks and everything maxed out on stable 60 FPS. So why Ubisoft?

I'm pretty sure there is a cloud save feature on UPlay and Steam. So as long as you let it save to the cloud and you're using the same account on the desktop as you use on the laptop you should be fine.
