    @longjohn119 Horizon Zero Dawn is running pretty solid on PC now. No comparison to Valhalla. They just forgot mediate which can be annoying.

    Great in-depth post! 😁

    @Kormac67

    HZD runs like a dream now for me. Also the cloth physics in Horizon are fixed now and look amazing. I never experience an AC PC port that actually improved performance after launch. I play AC since AC1 and since Black Flag i play on PC (2013). Ubisoft never tried to really improve performance after launch. When the game is officially out it feels like every PC dev with actual knowldge turns around and never ever touches the released game.

    HZD showed that it is possible to improve PC ports even after launch. Not just in things like controls but in the most hard thing to improve without downgrades- performance!

    @kormac67 When it came out I had a RX 5700 and had minimal problems with it, the usual 30 FPS hair and other issues and some crashing during the final two quests (Defending the Meridian and the big boss fight at the end) .... The problems were more with the Nvidia graphics ..... However when I replayed the game back in late November - early December I did a 98% completion (Everything but a couple of hunter lodges) and had zero crashes and only one bug where I shot the belly tank on a Frostclaws when I was too close and the explosion threw me into some rocks and my arm clipped and got stuck and I couldn't move but reloading a save fixed that and I only lost 5 minutes of gameplay .....

    Hopefully when they port Horizon Zero West over to the PC Sony doesn't make the same mistake of using a third party to port it and and let the Devs at Guerilla do the port themselves because they did a really good job of fixing a sloppily done port ..... When it came out there was still a lot of debug code in the game left by whatever automated program the outside group used to make the PC port so there was a lot of cleanup that needed to be done by Guerilla before they could even start addressing the problems ...... They released 10 patches and several Hot Fixes in under 5 months which is pretty impressive IMO .....

    @strelats

    Short answer...NO! Performance is exactly the same as before...

    @yesin069 For me it's even worse, I was at 50 fps to 30 before patch, now it's 20 fps right from the start. I guess I won't touch the game for another month then!

    I have between 40 and 80 fps in Valhalla, which isnt good at all when compared to RDR2 which i played with at least 60 fps at all times and which looks better than Valhalla and more detailed.

    I cant understand why Valhalla sometimes falls under 50 fps and i am also not at max settings and play in 1080p. This game is no visual masterpiece and lacks pretty much details (like proper cloth physics with proper fps for everything).

    Even with G-Sync i notice dips when the fps fall under 60 and this is why i always want at least 60 fps. I think about capping Valhalla to 60 fps but i got used to around 70 fps which feels so smooth. Even 60 fps feel a bit jarring now to me...
    This was possible with all modern games i played before, so i cant understand why Valhalla is so demanding. There are no complex physics or NPC routines running in the background like in RDR2 which has the best AI i seen since MGS5.

    @yesin069 agree, game sucks even at being average.

    Can someone please benchmark game with new update 1.2 and check if CPU Utilization is still stuck to 50% Usage or not? Can someone please confirm this please?

    @mueenahmad786 Still the same. Nothing will change because the support team doesn't want to do anything even after us providing all the information to solving the problem. Only solution is to have somehow backed up the 1.0.4 files on a disk drive and using those files to play the game, as it's the only version where the CPU% is properly distributed and utilized.

    Still the same, random after each fasttravel.
    River raids work fine so far (like before).

    It's the same as before, so stuck at around 50%.

    Everyone needs to accept this now WILL NOT change. Those of us on weaker CPU's and who were getting very good performance prior to 1.1.0, wth decent CPU utilization will not be catered for. The only way to get good FPS is to brute force via upgrading... or buy a next gen console, if you can find one.

    Low CPU utilization may be fine with a decent GPU in areas with little AI, but as soon as you enter big battles, or just populated areas, your frame rates will tank.

    Accept it and carry on playing, or give up.... There are no other options.

    Just raised a ticket #14307565 with the following content:

    Hello,

    I'm one of many customers experiencing huge FPS drops for no reason. Start benchmark for the first time - ok with 60 fps, then restart benchmark and it runs with 15 fps with 20% CPU load. This happens all the time during game play as well.

    Please do a refund of my purchase,even that I'm out of refund period, because this game is unplayable for me and a lot of other people:
    https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/88876/pc-after-tu-1-1-0-i-am-experiencing-fps-drops-low-cpu-and-gpu-utilisation

    Now when I see no solution to my issue after 1.2.0, I no longer want to wait any further. I believe you have all needed information and stats to see that I have waited 3 months to be able to play, spending my hours in the game mostly for benchmarks and waiting, playing meanwhile origins and odyssey with no issues.

    I really don't have the spare time to give more details about the issue, as I see a forum topic with 873 Replies / 24777 Views, providing screenshots, msinfo, dxdiag.,etc. and ignored for three months.

    For the record I have played (running benchmarks and changing settings) for 2 hours and 39 minutes, which is slightly more than the 2 hours refund policy.
    Meanwhile having 137h in Origins and 76 in Odyssey.

    It is not a topic we are ignoring, and I'd like to reassure you that everyone involved is doing what they can to identify the cause of these issues and improve performance on PC.

    @UbiUseless - so, what are the devs doing? Designing a new exciting feature nobody asked for like downgrading items? Populating England with more cats?

    They just hit me with a template answer by an anonymous Ubi-OneX employee in the ticket. Asking me to record video of the problem, screenshots, etc. - all that is already here in the forum by a lot of people.
    It is just my bad, waiting and hoping they will fix something that was not broken initially. So if you buy Ubi games, do it on Steam, and refund as soon, as there is an issue, do not hope, do not ask, just refund. If they fix the problem, you can purchase again.
