So Ubisoft has released a demonstration that showcases intels current SSD's , and how they supposedly impact the gameplay of brotherhood .
They also released a statement
which i find really silly , i mean come on...
Intel has been running some tests on their new Solid-State Drive 510 Series and they discovered some pretty awesome things when they loaded up Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. Turns out, the performance boost from the solid-state drives actually got our horses to run faster in-game.
are they trying to be funny?
If you dont know what an ssd is , its basicly a storage device without any moving parts , making it able to access files at incredible speeds.
Article from Tested about ssd's if you want to dig a bit deeper.
What ubisoft is saying is that a regular harddrive cant stream the games assets fast enough for you to sprint with a horse ( something that is usually pretty granted in games of this kind ). If this is true ,
and you truly need this for the game to be able to stream stuff fast enough , ubisoft has done a very poor job with this engine,
and if its the other way , as in ubisoft and intel just doing a bs campaign , much like crytek did when stating that 64 bit processors ment games would look better. (farcry)
its even worse than the first alternative.
I personally think its kind of cool that they put this into the game at this late, cause im guessing they "put" it in there , i doubt the horses have realtime dynamic sprint speed depending on how fast your drives are. Its probably a binary sprint or no sprint situation. ( ssd or no ssd )
I also think they should be able to fit alot of these things in the ram actually. So what do you guys think?
why is it that every other game on the surface of the earth seems to be able to run fine on regular harddrives? I mean , there are games out there where you can move faster than in assassins creed brotherhood , whilst the enviroment is more detailed.
