Specifications of our Test Rig

It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 3080 or a RX 5700 XT.

Though the system requirements of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are on the higher side, we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Here are the full specifications of our rig:

  • GPU : Zotac GTX 1650 4GB
  • RAM : 16GB DDR4 3000mhz

  • SSD : 256GB (Game installed on HDD)
  • HDD : 1 TB 7200 rpm
