Assassin’s Creed Syndicate APU test


We continue our cycles of APU video reviews aimed at testing the top AMD and Intel integrated graphics solutions. Assassin's Creed Syndicate was the next game accepted for testing integrated graphics solutions.

Game Information

London, 1868 Industrial revolution, the era of incredible inventions. Previously unthinkable technologies are changing the lives of millions. People flock to London, inspired by new opportunities, eager to be part of a new world that will not be dominated by kings, emperors, politicians and priests, a world where money equalizes everyone. However, not everyone considers such a world a blessing. The workers who set the mighty locomotive of the British Empire in motion are little more than slaves.
