Ubisoft, Nvidia pass blame for notorious Assassin’s Creed : Origins bug plaguing Nvidia RTX GPUs

For a long time, users of RTX GPUs such as myself have been plagued by a bug in Assassin’s Creed : Origins which causes texture flickering in various situations which is rather annoying and sometimes game breaking.
