The Crew PC Performance Video first 10 minutes

Ubisoft’s The Crew finally hits retail tomorrow on Xbox One, PS4 and PC after enjoying several Beta tests. With the full retail game in our hands we posted a The Crew PC performance video which showcases the opening 10 minutes and highlights how the game performs using the Ultra Settings with FXAA instead of the more resource hungry MSAA and High detail Shadows as opposed to Soft shadows which also add extra load. The game’s options offer a fixed 30 or 60 frames per second cap with no option to eliminate this in-game. For the most part The Crew sits comfortably at 60 frames per second but as the video highlights there are constant fluctuations. For your information the numbers in magenta indicate the GPU temperature, Fan Speed percentage and Frames per second. Be sure to take a look at the opening 30 minutes from the Beta in the second video.
