Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag takes advantage of the following Nvidia technologies:
- NVIDIA HBAO+ adds realistic Ambient Occlusion shadowing and shading around objects and surfaces that occlude light, with a considerably-higher degree of precision than previous AO techniques.
- NVIDIA Percentage-Closer Soft Shadows add contact hardening soft shadows throughout the game, increasing image quality by a significant degree.
- NVIDIA TXAA temporal anti-aliasing eliminates the distracting movement of anti-aliased lines and edges, and also eliminates other artifacts associated with anti-aliasing. Edge anti-aliasing is comparable with 8xMSAA, but at the performance cost of 4xMSAA.
- Higher-resolution textures, effects and assets make full use of the available VRAM and system RAM of PCs, adding extra detail even at 3840×2160, the next-generation 4K Gaming resolution.
- High-precision light rays increase the quality and fidelity of environmental lighting.
