    Alright, so I bought this game not too long ago. I liked it a lot. Got myself a Dodge Challenger SRT, 2015 Ford Mustang GT Fastback and more recently, a 2011 BMW F10 M5.

    However, one thing that's making progression way longer (and making me feel rather irritated) are the technical issues.:jealous:

    I play this game on the PC, more specifically, a gaming laptop. It's packed with a quad-core Core i7 4700MQ and a GT 750M with 2GB of GDDR5. I have the very latest GeForce drivers cleanly installed. However, the issue doesn't stop.

    There are actually 2 issues. The first one is relatively minor. It's a CTD (crash-to-desktop) without an error whatsoever. Though sometimes, there's a message that says "NVIDIA Kernel Mode Driver Version 347.09 has stopped working and has successfully recovered". The second error, which is infinitely more infuriating, is the game suddenly freezing and stuttering heavily with a really annoying buzzing sound as if it's about to enter a BSOD, but then recovers, but with the game audio continuing in the background and the screen completely frozen. You can quit it via Task Manager, but that will just make the game migrate to the background processes tab, and it's impossible to kill after that, without a forced reboot.

    As far as I'm concerned, there are no issues with my hardware. It went through a hardware test recently and all components passed. GPU temperature also never exceeds 69-70 degrees C.

    Anyone else on PC have this issue? Any fixes?

    NOTE: I've underclocked my GPU by 45MHz and it seems to be running happily so far, apart from some random black squares appearing from time-to-time, which might be artifacting.

    Have you created a support request ticket with Ubisoft?

    Some games just aren't designed/QA'd for the mobile versions of graphics processors (irrespective of performance). Check the recommended system requirements.

    I don't think it's a compatibility issue.

    A friend of mine has a similar issue, albeit with a BSOD, on his desktop GTX 970.

    Well, even the system requirements say that laptops are not officially supported.
