Assassin's Creed III laggy after 1.03 Update

Hello,

Recently I have acquired Assassin's Creed III, and I had quite a good time playing it. I could max it out flawlessly on my i5 2500 and my GTX 460 1 GB with at least 40 FPS, with everything set to Very High, even the anti aliasing. But two days ago I have purchased the Tyranny of King Washington DLC and had to update my game in order to run it. So yeah, I installed 1.03, and got a weird bug with the voice dialogues, which I just got fixed. But now, my game is really laggy (playable, but annoying) and it doesn't seem to go away even when I turn down the Graphic options. How can I fix this?

EDIT: This lag starts right after Haytham steps in Boston. The Ship missions ran just fine.

    EDIT²: I also tried to play the DLC and it lags even worse than the original game :??: I feel like I just threw my cash in the garbage by buying this game...

    -Go to your Documents folder
    -Search for "Assassin3.ini"
    -Click it with the right mouse button, Open with..., and then Notepad
    -Search for the line "Vsync"
    -It'll be set to 1, erase the 1 and put 0

    It should run smoothly once again :)
