Nvidia Corp. on Wednesday announced an alliance with Ubisoft to offer PC gamers the best gaming experiences possible for Ubisoft's biggest fall titles, including Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs. At least one of those titles will be bundled with Nvidia GeForce graphics cards.
"PC gaming is stronger than ever and Ubisoft understands that PC gamers demand a truly elite experience – the best resolutions, the smoothest frame rates and the latest gaming breakthroughs. We have worked closely with Ubisoft's incredibly talented creative team throughout the development process to incorporate our technologies and deliver the most immersive and visually spectacular game worlds imaginable," said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at Nvidia.
Nvidia's developer technology team is working closely with Ubisoft's development studios on incorporating graphics technology innovations to create game worlds that deliver new heights of realism and immersion. One example is Nvidia TXAA antialiasing, which provides smooth animation, soft shadows, HBAO+ (horizon-based ambient occlusion) and advanced DirectX 11 tessellation.
"The PC remains one of the world's most popular gaming platforms, and we're committed to offering PC players the best possible experience with our games. Combining Nvidia's visual computing expertise and the creativity of our development teams will give customers a stunning experience when choosing an Ubisoft game for the PC," said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft.
The PC version of Splinter Cell Blacklist, released on August 20, is available now from participating retailers as part of an Nvidia bundle with GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 or 780 GPUs. It is logical to expect Nvidia to bundle Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs with its graphics solutions going forward.

nvidia is just copycatting AMD. and with this exclusive ubisoft game bundle nvidia did a big mistake,,this will sure give chance to AMD to make even better relation with EA games,square enix,epic games,infinity ward,konami and other big franchies this will surely result in next nvidia-killer "NEVER SETTLE".
AMD officially announced that current HD7000 GCN gpu fully supports DirectX 11.2 (tiled resources)just ned a driver update sheduled to widows8.1 launch,, DX11.2 which is next big thing and new lineup is just on door so in 2013 AMD will have two generation supporting DX11.2 while nvidia will not have even a single gpu suuporting DX11.2.
GCN was launched in 2011 and supports DX11.2 on hardware level while nvidia's DX11.2 candidate will come in 2014 means AMD is 3 years ahed than nvidia.
nvidia does not have even DX11.1 gpu yes that's true kepler is DX11 gpu not DX11.1 it support DX11.1 via software tricks while GCN is DX11.2 on hardware from day 1. if u hv any doubt then just ask to nvidia ceo mr. huang( big barker).
after having this information only fools will buy nvidia gpu for gaming.

what a joke.........funny
truth is kepler is DX11 on hardware level including their 1000$ "babyTITAN".
can u please explain me how kepler can support even DX11.1 on hardware level coz i am very familiar with architecture and drivers.
before 4 months i said that GCN is something more than DX11.1 coz we personally tested GCN in our labs.and as far we know kepler uses software tricks to support DX11.1............... how pathetic

Way to go, troll. Since you know that Kepler supports DX 11.2 you back to DX 11.1 drama. What's next? Kepler doesn't support DX 6? :D

Lolwut. Who cares about DX11.2? You need Windows 8, and nobody uses that.
And I do not care that they are copying AMD when it comes to bundling games. It just means more cheap games I can buy from people buying new GPUs.
