Update Your GPU Drivers

As with any other game, your first option is to update your GPU drivers. We highly recommend that you check for updates every now and then as AMD and Nvidia generally release new drivers before big game launches. That applies to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla too.

This is fundamental in terms of optimization because these driver updates boost performance, increase FPS, fix stuttering issues, among others.

To update your GPU drivers, open AMD Radeon Software (For AMD GPUs) or NVIDIA GeForce Experience (for NVIDIA GPUs) and check for any updates. If there is an update available, download and install it.

Once the download is finished, simply click on the green Express Installation and you’re good to go once it has finished installing.

If you’ve made sure your GPU drivers are running the latest version, you can now move on to adjusting your settings.

Best Graphics Settings For Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Follow these instructions to optimize Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Overall, setting most of the settings to ‘Medium‘ will provide you with the required frame rates to fully enjoy your gaming experience. If you have an RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 GPU, feel free to set some of these settings to a higher value.

If you still experience issues, you can lower some of the settings such as Shadows and Character Textures as these impact performance most.

We recommend adjusting the following settings:

  1. Open up Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  2. Go to Options and click on the Graphics tab
  3. Set Graphics Quality to Custom
  4. Set Adaptive Quality to Off
  5. Set Anti-Aliasing to High for the best visual experience
  6. Set World Details to High for a great-looking game as there’s a big difference between the Medium and High setting in this case
  7. Set Clutter to High for a nice balance of detail and performance
  8. Set Shadows to Medium for the best balance of detail and performance. We don’t recommended setting this to Low
  9. Set Volumetric Clouds to Medium as this is not worth setting to a higher value
  10. Set Water to Medium for the best balance of water detail and game performance
  11. Set Screen Space Reflections to Off
  12. Set Environment Textures to High
  13. Set Character Textures to Medium. Set it to High if you have a powerful graphics card
  14. Set Depth of Field to Off for the best visual experience
  15. Set Motion Blur to Off for the best visual experience

And that’s it! If you’ve closely followed these steps, you should now have higher frame rates and an increased performance.
