Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is Ubisoft’s latest entry in its long-running series, and in many ways it is its most ambitious, being the first entry to run on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. 

So, understandably, we were keen to give the PC version a try on our 8K test rig, which is now powered by the mighty Nvidia RTX 3090. This flagship GPU from Nvidia costs $1,499 / £1,399 (around AU$2,030), and the company promises that this is the GPU to finally make 8K gaming a reality.
