Assassin's Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings

Kicking up a Spartan storm

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti

Hands down the best graphics card available right now, the Nvidia GeForce RTX2080Ti was the one delivering the Spartan kicks here, not the game. With a whopping 11GB of memory to its name, the RTX 2080Ti is more than capable of handling Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at top speeds across all three resolutions. Here’s how it got on:

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Without a doubt. Whack it up to Ultra High and live like a king. Admittedly, the benchmark still only returned an average frame rate of 59fps on this particular quality settings, but I suspect that’s more to do with my CPU not being able to keep up with the number of frames it’s spitting out. That won’t be a problem if you’ve only got a 60Hz monitor, of course, but I’ll update these results once I get a better CPU in for testing to see if high refresh rate screen owners will be able to make use of any extra frames.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Yep yep, and once again you can dial it up to Ultra High without even a whiff of a struggle. Here, the benchmark produced another fine average of 59fps, but you can always squeeze a few extra frames out of it (for an average of 64fps) by dropping down to Very High instead. Again, I think my CPU may be holding it back here, but needless to say, this card is more than capable of delivering 60fps+ speeds at this resolution, even when it is being bottlenecked by your processor.

Can I play this at 4K?

I’d jolly well hope so if I’d paid north of a grand for this card. Fortunately, the RTX 2080Ti absolutely delivers on this front, and you can play this beaut at the toppest top settings. Despite the aforementioned CPU problems, I still got an excellent 54fps average on Ultra High at 4K, despite a fair amount of variation down to 30fps at times, but that’s nothing the Adaptive Quality setting won’t be able to sort out to help keep frame rates nice and smooth.

In fact, I only managed to improve the average by a single frame by dropping down to Very High, which produced just as much variation, probably again due to the CPU. Still, if you’ve got an RTX 2080Ti and want the absolute best of the best in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, this is the card to do it.
