Assassin’s Creed Odyssey PC graphics performance: Asus GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Phoenix

Even though it doesn’t have any of the cool RTX tech in it, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is surprisingly powerful for a £260 / $279 GPU, which is why it’s currently our top graphics card recommendation for playing games at 1080p in our best graphics card list, as well as the card you should actually buy for 1440p gaming if the RTX 2060 is too far out of your price range. And what a great match it makes for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, offering stunning frame rates at 1080p and 1440p alike.

I’ve got Asus’ entry-level Phoenix card on test here, which is one of the cheapest GTX 1660 Ti cards around. As a result, the results below should be considered as an absolute baseline of what the GTX 1660 Ti is capable of in this game, and many faster varieties of this card should be able to offer even higher performance.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Does Zeus have two thumbs? You betcha, and you can even get a nice 53fps average on Ultra High too. You’ll get slightly smoother speeds by knocking it down to Very High, admittedly, where I saw an average frame rate of 65fps, but those wanting to max out their 1080p monitors should be perfectly fine on the top setting here as well.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Time to strap on those Hermes sandals, friend, because yes you can. High will net you the nippiest speeds with an average of 60fps, but Very High managed a highly playable average of 50fps as well.

Can I play this at 4K?

Playing at this resolution might turn you into Ares, god of war, on occasion, but surprisingly, it is just about doable. Low is your safest bet here, thanks to an average of 52fps, but if you really want to push the GTX 1660 Ti to its limit, then you can also get an average of 44fps when playing on Medium. But really, why play with so-so graphics at 4K when you can get Aphrodite-levels of loveliness at 1080p or 1440p?
