Assassin’s Creed got released and it’s time to optimize the game to its fullest. You don’t want to play the game at low FPS, do you now?
Since it’s not a multiplayer game and it features no competitive element, having the lowest possible settings for higher FPS is not ideal. You want a good mix of visual looks and performance.
Therefore, you should really adjust the graphics settings in the game after your preferences. These are just the settings that we use in Assassin’s Creed: Origins along with some overall PC tips because this game is very CPU intensive.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins Graphics Settings
This game is better optimized for NVIDIA GPU’s, so if you own an AMD GPU, even the powerful AMD RX Vega 56 or AMD RX Vega 64, do not expect to get higher FPS than 60 FPS in 1080p at the medium video preset. Even the GTX 1060 runs the game better than the RX Vega 64 at the time of this writing.
The Anvil Engine, which is the engine that Assassin’s Creed runs on, is not that good at scaling with lower settings, so lowering your settings might not give you the performance boost that you would expect at first sight.
Also have in mind that Assassin’s Creed: Origins is very CPU intensive, meaning that you need a proper CPU/GPU combination to run the game properly.
A handy trick is to use the Performance Tools in Assassin’s Creed: Origins by pressing F1 in-game. That way, you can see your FPS, CPU and GPU usage, and a overall score of your performance. Based on that score, you can adjust your settings.

If you can hit more than 60fps with your GPU and CPU, then turn this off.

Also, if you have an AMD GPU then be sure to disable HBCC as it causes a lot of performance drops for AMD graphics cards.
