[FPS Benchmarks] Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – the 130W GPU is 19% faster

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the 2020 installment of the popular series. As always, we have a decent storyline (which is really long if you want to complete all the side quests), RPG elements, and decent graphics (despite the fact the engine of this game isn’t the newest out there).

The game offers a big open world full of NPCs, forests, lakes, castles, battles, and much more. If you want to see the game in its full glory you’re going to need a serious machine for Ultra details.

That’s why for our article we have prepared two fast NVIDIA Ampere GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W).

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 (+16%) 110 fps (+18%) 96 fps (+22%) 83 fps (+20%)
GeForce RTX 3080 [85W] 109 fps 93 fps 79 fps 69 fps


Expectedly, the GPU is 19% faster on average compared to its 85W opponent. Nothing bad in it, the TGP matter the most in heavy games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. On the other hand, the 85W contender is able to show 69 FPS on Ultra which is (probably) enough for a single-player title.
