Take a look at Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in 8K on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 with Reshade Ray Tracing

YouTube’s ‘Digital Dreams’ has shared a video, showcasing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey running in 8K on an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey remains a really beautiful game. While it lacks the incredible pre-baked lighting of Assassin’s Creed Unity, it can still look amazing. In fact, I personally prefer Origins and Odyssey over Valhalla.

Unfortunately, the YouTuber has not included any performance overlay figures. From the looks of it, the game runs with a minimum of 30fps. Or at least that’s my assumption as I don’t see any major choppiness in this gameplay footage. So while technically you don’t have to run the game at 8K, it’s cool witnessing modern-day games running at this ridiculously high resolution.

In order to further enhance the game’s graphics, Digital Dreams also used Reshade Ray Tracing. Reshade Ray Tracing is using depth information available in screen space in order to provide its “ray tracing” effects. As such, these Ray Tracing effects are not as accurate as the native RT effects that most modern-day games support. Nevertheless, this RT workaround can further enhance a game’s Global Illumination and Ambient Occlusion effects.\

For those unaware, by running a game at 8K, you basically introduce additional AA to the game (when gaming in 4K or even 1440p monitors). You’re basically downsampling the game from a higher resolution. This can provide crisper graphics with less aliasing. And yes, this is what SSAA (Super Sampling Anti-Aliasing) was doing. So no, you don’t need an 8K monitor in order to enjoy gaming at 8K. That is of course if, for some reason, you want to play at that resolution.

Lastly, and speaking of 8K videos, you may be also interested in these other videos. For instance, here are Just Cause 3GTA 5 and Crysis 3 running in 8K. You can also find The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Skyrim in 8K. Let’s also not forget the 8K videos for Red Dead Redemption 2Batman Arkham Knight, Battlefield 1 & Metal Gear Solid 5, as well as Diablo 3, Battlefield Bad Company 2, COD: Modern WarfareRIDE 4Halo RemasterForza Horizon 5The Witcher 3Final Fantasy 7 RemakeMonster Hunter Rise and Horizon Zero Dawn.
