I turned on triple buffering in the driver settings in catalyst and turned off v-sync in game using an R9 290 and it eliminated %90 of screen tearing. Funny how the game runs better with super sampling enabled over MSAA.
Their is no native SSAA. You have:
SMAA (different type of FXAA)
EQAA (custom filter, similar to NVs CSAA).
I love PC gaming, but times like these I can't help but laugh at all the pc master race losers. I can play AC4 on my PS4 with no problems and beautiful graphics...
AC4 on the PS4 runs at 30 FPS. Having been playing at that rate to generate this article, 30 FPS sucks.
With a high-end video card and these settings, you can maintain a steady 45 - 60 FPS. I'll take that over the PS4 any day.

"Oh well, better luck next generation. :("
-Game breaks on PC-
"Wow, all I had to do was change a setting!"
Have fun with 720p and 30FPS!
Game runs in 1080p on the PS4, but nice try. Once again the pc master race comes out with their insecurities. I'll keep my 300+ steam collection, along with my PS4, and have a blast on both.
"Oh no, he corrected my PC bashing! He must be a PC elitist! Dangit, when will they just let me think I won? OH, I know! How about I pretend to own a gaming PC to people will hold more weight to what I said! Hmm, 300 seems like a believable number."
Stretched 720 is not 1080, sorry. I'll just enjoy my 4K monitor I got early for Christmas!
Ok, folks. Let's cool the testosterone.
#1. The PS4 versions of AC4 is true 1080p. Not 720p. Not stretched 900. Sony patched it a few weeks back.
#2. It still runs at 30 FPS. :P And I'll take 60 FPS over 30 FPS any day.
#3. Consoles are great. I sometimes wish I owned an Xbox 360 or PS3, because so many great games have come out for them that never made it to PC. I enjoy great gaming experiences, on any platform, and I wish I'd gotten to play Heavy Rain or The Last of Us.
#4. PCs are great. I love being able to mod games. I love the fact that user communities often pull together and issue patches for titles that developers haven't fixed properly. I love that a game with a vibrant user community can be expanded and stretched far beyond what the developers thought possible, and that this is far more common with PCs than with consoles, though it can happen there as well.
That's a ridiculous statement. People who can afford $400 - $500 consoles and $60 games aren't peasants. Peasants are people living in homes with limited access to electricity, industrial agriculture, and other basic tools of first world infrastructure.
Well the game is pretty much just a tour of the caribic.... story sucks... so GFX dont matter.
And what is this anyways?
That's the open source tool FRAFS. It's a frame time viewer.
