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

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: PowerColor Radeon RX 590 Red Devil

Yes, it’s another AMD PowerColor card here, only this time it’s AMD’s Radeon RX 590. Quite possibly one of the largest graphics cards in my GPU pile, this buffed up red devil is quite the chunker.

However, underneath all that bulk is a fairly average incarnation the RX 590, with its boost clock speed of 1576MHz putting it right in the middle of what’s currently available from other third-party cards. Still, with 8GB of memory to its name and some hefty cooling apparatus, the RX 590 is still a good choice for playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at 1080p, even if it isn’t quite as fast as Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Absolutely, but the very highest quality settings are likely to be out of reach here, even for the RX 590. Medium will get you that constant silky smooth 60fps with its average of 69fps, but I reckon High or Very High are also doable here with their respective averages of 55fps and 51fps. You might see a couple of sub-30fps jolts when the action gets particularly busy on these quality settings, but on the whole you should still see some pretty decent speeds.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Also yes, but Medium is almost certainly going to be the absolute limit at this resolution for those after the smoothest possible speeds. Here, I saw a steady average of 53fps, but bumping it up to High pushed that figure back down to 43fps. It’s playable, certainly, but not quite as effortless as playing on Medium.

Can I play this at 4K?

Alas, no. Even on Low, the RX 590 only managed an average of 38fps here, with two big sub 20-fps dips when town got particularly busy. Stick to 1440p or 1080p with this card.
