Assassins Creed Origins high CPU usage

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey so I just started playing Assassins Creed Origins and my CPU usage is pegged at 100% in cities. Is this normal? I have an i7 4790. I'm not getting a solid 60 FPS either. I would get like 70% GPU usage, 50 FPS, and 100% CPU usage.

It's normal. The game is very CPU intensive.

It's normal. The 4790 is pretty old and modern games push past its limits easily

Going by what CYRI says, I'd say even the Recommended would be for getting the game installed & running at lowest settings.

 

i7-4790 & what graphics card...?


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

2080 ti, I'm getting an i9 10900k installed in the next few weeks. I run at 4k max.

Even to the point I can't get 60 fps?

Yes, this is the game that pushed me to upgrade to an 8600k and then 9900k just to eliminate all CPU bottlenecks.

Even with a 2080 Ti I think it may dip below 60fps in the cities (from what I've seen on benchmarks), they are VERY CPU and GPU intensive.

Yea I can calculate by my GPU usage there are a few areas I might dip under 60.

Honestly though, I do quite well on a 2080 at 4K for Odyssey, if only my TV was the model up with G-Sync I'd be fine as it spends a lot of time at 60.  The benchmarks that show drops I think use max settings, turning a few things down might get you there on a Ti.

Its interesting as even after upgrading the CPU I upgraded again from 2400Mhz RAM to 3200Mhz and that dramatically reduced the occurrence of stutters.  The Assassins Creed games just hit everything really hard.

Why on earth would you get a 10900K... terrible value.

My 4.7Ghz 4790K with 4.4Ghz L3 Cache and CL11.12.12 2200Mhz Memory can dip to around 65fps but can also infrequently see sub60 often in the cities, without such OC-Tuning and at stock (Allcore 4.2Ghz/1866DDR3), the cities were like 42-45fps at the lows with near full CPU usage.
 

Now my OC tuned setup still can run into the 80-90% usages in such city environments, but my dips are now 55fps-60fps with high CPU usage.

The locked 4790 just doesn't have the frequency (also possibly using slower non-Z board 1600Mhz DDR3 support) for the high demands ACO puts on the CPU.
The game is 8thread aware, and is made to run at 30FPS and legit fast frequency+manycores brute force methods for PC to run 60FPS+ (minimums)

I thought this game come with Denuvo and VMProtect that hammer your CPU usage? Did they removed those?

That's exactly my setup. I got 1600 mhz RAM. I'm doing a huge upgrade soon though.

It will lol. People will point to the 3900X with more cores for the same/bit lower price, but it's only 2 more, and they're only useful if you actually need more cores. A 10c/20t chip will still hold up plenty fine. My 6950X is happily chomping away at games and that's a 10c/20t chip from 2015, the 10900K is that + a solid IPC and beefy clock headroom bump. Should keep chugging for a damn good while 👌. Just make sure to get appropriate cooling if you plan to manually OC, stock they're pretty docile compared to past CPUs.

Well 2 more cores, an actual upgrade path, PCIE 4.0 and all for less money. Or you could get the 3700X for half the price and get exactly the same performance because 4K = GPU bottleneck.

And a 2080 Ti gets 'necked by PCIe 3.0 x8 by around 3%. And you can run PCIe 3.0 x16, meaning you need a GPU pushing roughly twice the bandwidth a 2080 Ti needs in games to start choking with PCIe 3.0. 4.0 is handy if your board supports splitting down to more 3.0 lanes (and you actually need more lanes, else it's useless), or you need the pure read/write PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs offer. Otherwise it has little to offer, and it'll likely be a while before it's anywhere close to needed. 

OP specifically said they're getting a 10900K because they "want something that will last a really long time". So I doubt an upgrade path is a massive concern if you buy a CPU for the express purpose of not needing to upgrade for a while. Given that my 10c/20t chip is still damn solid, I think it'll be a while before one 5 years newer starts choking. 

Less money is a valid point if the OP cares about that cost difference. If not, then it isn't really a factor.

But if you want it going into the future PCIE 4.0 is a good thing.

 

Well the 10900K is on a dead platform with PCIE 3.0 which will likely be a bottleneck in the next 2 GPU releases so...

 

What's the point in paying 2x more for the same performance? 4K will always be GPU bottlenecked unless you're playing something like CSGO and even then you're pushing 700FPS does the extra 100 really matter?

Hmm, yea I'll be getting the 2022 release of GPUs. I upgrade them every 4 years. Will I get more performance with PCIE 4.0 in the future? By what I'm hearing AMD Ryzen offers it but Intel doesn't?

AC:O is really strange.

If I have my character at one of the gates of Athens my GPU is at 2070mhz looking into the city but if I look out to the countryside it is only running at 1920mhz. The frame rate is the same at 60 since it is synced for HDR.  I get from 75 to 85% GPU usage when doing this and only get 98% if my character is standing on the shore looking out to the sea.

Sometimes I think I am CPU bound and other times I think I am GPU bound but since the frame rate is the same and it is a totally smooth experience I don't think it matters.

Intel won’t offer it until next year most likely. AMD 4000 chips are coming though so you might wanna hold fire for them.
