1440p looks like garbage to me on my 4K screen. Lowest res. I'd use is ~1800p or DLSS which upscales from lower resolutions, but still looks way better than 1440p.

I've been enjoying way to many crisp native 4K games lately to not notice a difference.
Monitor or TV?

TVs scale lower resolutions very well, monitors are terrible at scaling. Everything non-native on a monitor will look very blurry while on a TV, any mid to high-end will make 1440p look 90% as good as 4k from normal viewing distance.

I thought this was funny:



Which would mean that you wouldn't be able to play the game with HD textures with one of the most sought after GPUs on the market today (the RTX 3080). Ubisoft obviously likes to joke around.

I'm wondering if this would be the first game where you'd see higher quality textures on consoles than PCs with more powerful GPUs but with <11GB VRAM (3070 Ti, 3080).

Be interesting to look at PC vs PS5/XSX comparisons.

Ray Tracing isn't refined enough yet, i think both consoles came out at a bad moment because any RT Hardware they have is, like, really early tech and consequently bound to be inefficient.

I think the pro editions are going to be Way more capable of handling complex RT. I kinda feel like every month that goes by is going to reduce the requirements of RT solutions by a percentage point or so.

4k 60 without RT, one could mention a few games which would have enjoyed a much smoother development cycle if they had been so responsible with their priorities.

It's an AMD sponsored title and their top 4 this gen, 6900xt, 6800xt, 6800, 6700xt, all have 12GB or more vRAM.

Benchmarks say 9,3gb usage at the highest. 8gb cards are in trouble for that 3080 not so much.
