    The only reason AC Valhalla is showing such a performance boost is because it is loading low resolution textures instead of the high resolution textures because it's not implemented properly ..... Just panning the camera in places like Raventhorpe you can see the textures resolution popping in and out .... same when you look at a shield the player is holding .... The FPS boost is due to lower resolution textures being loaded not because of Resizable BAR .....

    Ridiculous - this feature only works on certain (supported) motherboards. Tests have already confirmed if your motherboard is not officially supported you can actually kill your performance on the FEWS games that support this. Taking advantage of gamers who don't do their due diligence is not cool.
