Benchmark scores in other reviews are only comparable when this exact same configuration is used.

We tested the public release version of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, not a press pre-release. We also installed the Day One 1.02 Patch. Both AMD and NVIDIA have released game-ready drivers for the game.

Graphics Memory Usage

Using a GeForce RTX 3090, which has 24 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting.

Even at lower resolutions, Assassin's Creed Valhalla will consume quite a lot of memory—cards with 4 GB and 3 GB could be seriously challenged. At higher resolutions, the requirements are more reasonable because most cards that can drive decent FPS at 1440p and 4K have 8 GB VRAM or more.

GPU Performance

For this testing, we are not using the integrated benchmark. I picked a more representative gameplay scene that also gives us enough time to warm up the graphics card before taking measurements. This ensures you're getting proper steady-state FPS numbers, not some massively boosted scores that are only achievable in short benchmarks.

FPS Analysis

In this section, we're comparing each card's performance to the average FPS measured in our graphics card reviews, which is based on a mix of 23 games and should provide a realistic average covering a wide range of APIs, engines, and genres.
