[FPS Benchmarks] Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) – the difference isn’t that big

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the blockbusters of 2020 alongside Cyberpunk 2077. You can enjoy a story full of brutal Viking battles and overall the single-player campaign is interesting.

Some words regarding the visuals of the game – the title looks just fine and it uses the same engine as Origins and Odyssey. This game and its big open world need a powerful machine if you want to bump all the quality settings to the max.

For today’s article, we have prepared the fastest mobile GPUs that NVIDIA can offer in 2021  – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W).

Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Full HD, Low (Check settings) Full HD, Medium (Check settings) Full HD, High (Check settings) Full HD, Ultra (Check settings)
GeForce RTX 3080 [130W] 126 fps (+8%) 110 fps (+5%) 96 fps (+5%) 83 fps (+6%)
GeForce RTX 3070 [130W, Intel CPU] 117 fps 105 fps 91 fps 78 fps


Well, actually the difference between these two GPUs (at least in this test) isn’t something to write home about. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is just 6% faster on average so at least in this case, the RTX 3070 (130W) is almost as fast as its bigger sibling.

But don’t forget the fact that in other gaming titles the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is clearly faster than the RTX 3070 (130W).

Thanks for the test.
Interesting comparison. I would ask for more games with these GPUs from TGP 130W, maybe even add RTX3060, is there a 130W option?
