UNSOLVED Unsure if this is a texture glitch or something else0 Likes/5 Replies/98 Views
I started a new game of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. I'm still in the Norway portion of the game, and I've tried different optimization settings for graphics. Today, while playing, everything seemed to be running well until I encountered this texture on this rock.
I'm very concerned that this may not be related to the game itself, but rather my graphic settings or possibly hardware. A few days ago, I had another strange encounter while playing. The game stopped, it took me to a "green screen" that told me my PC ran into an error and will restart. When it started it up, it told me the CPU overheated. I immediately went into my BIOS and restored optimized settings. I cleaned out the inside of my case, got some dust out of there and started monitoring my CPU & GPU temperatures. They were still running a bit warm during gameplay for Assassin's Creed, but no different from any other graphic intense games I've played.
I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is a possible hardware issue or something in-game. So far, I've only seen it in that one spot of the game.
Here are my specs:
Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit (Installed on Samsung 960 EVO Series - 250GB PCIe)
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K @ 3.70GHz
Cooler: CRYORIG H7 Tower Cooler
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 11GB GDDR5X
RAM: G.SKILL TridentZ 3000 MHz 16GB - 2 X 8GB
PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus 80+ Gold 750W
MOBO: ASUS Z370 ROG Maximum X Hero
CASE: NZXT H500i
Game is installed on: OCZ Technology 128GB Agility 4 Series SATA 6Gb/s SSD, and it is the only thing installed on there
If you have any insight on what the issue could be, I'd be very grateful.
