With that out of the way, let’s get started with the best optimization that you can do.

Assassins Creed Valhalla Best Settings

Update Your GPU Drivers

It’s no secret that the best optimization is to update your GPU drivers. Before big game launches, AMD and Nvidia release drivers that boost performance, fix FPS and stuttering issues, and more.

That applies to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla too.

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.

Before the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta released, Nvidia published a driver update that fixed a lot of issues

Once it has finished downloading, simply click on the green Express Installation and you are good to go once it has finished installing.

Let’s move on to the actual optimizations now!
