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.
