In this wine version most performance related issues remains equal in most games however in ubisoft titles (uplay titles) appears interesting problem have relation with uplay client

Main problem stay in new process at open uplay client named uplaywebcore.exe and impact seriously performance (in my machine consume around 20 to 25% of cpu use)

In this video (Assassins Creed Brotherhood Multiplayer) can observe performance with uplaywebcore activated (around minute 2:06 to minute 4:55) and how up performance with is desactivated (around minute 5:58 to 7:35)

View video on youtube.com

In this video (Assassins Creed Brotherhood Singleplayer) can observe performance with uplaywebcore activated (around minute 2:30 to minute 3:55) and how up performance with is desactivated (around minute 7:50 to 9:25)

In this video (Assassins Creed Revelations Singleplayer) can observe performance with uplaywebcore activated (around minute 1:50 to minute 4:20) and how up performance with is desactivated (around minute 6:15 to 9:18)

In other cases appears some interesing related with sonic generations, in this game appears characters now but fix is bit strange but works

For fix works you must need directly in game (DONT open config application*)

*If you need open config app must be secure close application and wine once save game config preferences

Other case have relation with bug (wine performance drop tested in 3DMark 2000)
