IN A NUTSHELL:
- RTX 3090 is not enough to achieve stable 60 fps in 4K in AC: Valhalla (with detail level set to "Ultra");
- In a bechmark conducted by the GameGPU channel, the card achieved an average of 56 fps, but there were drops to 40.
Tomorrow, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, the latest installment of the award-winning series of action / RPG adventure games from the French company Ubisoft, will be released on the market. The GameGPU channel has released benchmarks of the game's PC version and unfortunately, we don't have good news - even the powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is not enough to play in 4K / 60 fps without compromising the detail level.
In an insider benchmark, Nvidia's most powerful graphics chipser achieved an average of 56 fps. Unfortunately, due to occasional drops to as little as 40 fps, the actual fluidity was a bit worse. In short, there is currently no GPU on the market that would allow for smooth 4K gameplay in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla on max details.
The benchmark make it difficult to be optimistic about the performance of console versions, but for the time being we don't have any specifics. It is also worth noting that AC: Valhalla is already the second, after Watch Dogs: Legion, Ubisoft's recently released game, which is characterized by poor optimization on PCs (and not only on them - on the theoretically "next-gen" Xbox Series S, Legion can sometimes offer resolutions below 1080p). It is hard not to get the impression that French developers do not pay enough attention to this problem.
