Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC

My current recommendation for the best graphics card you should actually buy for 1080p gaming, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is a true force to be reckoned with at just £200 / $220, and it makes a mighty fine partner for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, too – the Ikaros of today’s lower-end graphics cards, so to speak.

Indeed, the Gigabyte OC edition I’ve got on test is one of the cheapest GTX 1660s out there at the moment, and thus the results below should offer a pretty good baseline for what to expect speed-wise. With 6GB of GDDR5 memory to hand and a boost clock speed of 1830MHz, this is one of the best experiences you’re going to get around the £200 / $200 mark right now – although I’ll also be adding in Nvidia’s newly-announced GTX 1650 very soon as well to see how that fares by comparison.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Certainly. For that perfect Midas touch of a golden 60fps, Very High and its average of 62fps is going to be your best bet here, but I reckon Ultra High’s average of 48fps is also highly doable for those who want to get the absolute best out of their 1080p monitor. I did see a couple of stutters down to the mid-20s, all told, but for the most part it was absolutely fine.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

You sure can, although I’d advise sticking to Medium here and its average of 62fps for the smoothest ride. You can try pushing it up to High if you’re desperate, but even though I saw an average of 53fps on this setting, I also recorded a couple of quite major dips all the way down to 19fps as well, which isn’t exactly ideal.

Can I play this at 4K?

It’s doable, but you’ll start to feel the petrifying effects of Medusa’s snake buds if you try anything higher than Low, which produced an average of 47fps in the game’s benchmark. Medium and its average of 36fps is doable, save for the odd sub-20fps hitch now and again, but that’s as good as it’s going to get here.
