Why am I getting so low fps with a GTX 1060 on Assassin's Creed: Origins?

My specs are an i3 4130, 8gb of ram and a GTX 1060 3gb. I just got the GTX 1060 today and am running it on a 1080p monitor off an SSD. I should be able to get 40-60fps on high-ultra settings. But for some reason on high settings I am only getting 30fps. I am running it at 1080p settings in-game. And it's in DirectX 11. I don't want to lower the settings due to the GPU I just got which would negate the purpose of buying it. Do I need to upgrade my CPU? I Heard this game is very CPU intensive so I might need to upgrade. All I can afford at the moment is an i5 4460 but I am saving up to upgrade to Ryzen so I'd like to avoid that if necessary. Any thoughts?

  1. 1. Download MSI Afterbuner or use task manager to monitor CPU/GPU/RAM usage. If any runs at or near 100% consistently, that one is bottleneck your overall system.
    2. What graphic card you use before GTX1060? Did you remove old driver and install new driver for GTX1060?
  2. Did you disable v-synch? I do however think the I3 is a bit underpowered for that title.

    You are going to have to turn the settings down to very high and disable some memory intensive settings to get closer to 60fps on that processor/card combo. You can improve performance upgrading your CPU, but it won't be remarkable. 60 fps and beautiful gaming just isn't going to happen on your rig. Still, a good time to be had with less rigorous settings.

  4. Probably the i3 to be honest, I seem to remember that game wanting 4 cores.
  5. My previous graphics card was a GTX 1050Ti then a GT 1030 and now the 1060 3gb. I know 4 cores is necessary but I have to wait until I can save up for AMD Ryzen in a few months. I don't do enough gaming to warrant a hefty processor. But one day I will upgrade soon. I might download MSI Afterburner but I am a noob with PC software. I will check and see if Vsync is disabled. Pretty sure I disabled it. Might switch the FPS to medium and see if I get better performance. Thanks!

    if you have an i3 4130 all you need to do is upgrade the cpu

    not waste a lot of money on a side-grade platform swap
  7. I agree, a i7 4770 or 4790 from a used market would be perfect.
  8. I might try and upgrade to an i7 but I'll have to wait for a bit.

    At least that way you wont have to change your motherboard, or change your RAM to DDR4 (which is very expensive right now).

    Yeah I pulled 4gb of DDR3 ram from my old PC and added it to my current 8gb stick so I now have 12gb. An odd number I know but better than 8 and hopefully it should help get some extra frames. I messed around with the settings in Assassin's Creed: Origins and can get 30-50fps (mainly 30-40) on Very High settings with some things switched off and that's good enough for me now. Ultra settings was unplayable and I didn't want to play on Medium since then I may as well have stuck with a GTX 1050 or 1050Ti. I will definitely upgrade my CPU in the near future though.
