What those videos don't show is the setup required to get that fps. In nvidia control panel/global settings use performance not quality. Turn grass details to medium, viewing distance to medium. Change pre-rendered frames from 3 to 1.
In windows, disable Xbox DVR and game bar. Turn off/disable any any background running apps like windows store and Cortana. Make sure that windows is optimized, run Ccleaner (piriform.com,default settings) to clean out caches and internet temp to files.

Understand, most ppl doing those videos are only showing what is possible, not what is probable. There's a rather large difference between your average homeowner gaming type pc and one setup specifically for just game videos.

you never know what they are really running on and at what settings and so on and so on. obviously it's not right or you'd be able to do the same.

best place to ask is on youtube where the videos are posted and see if maybe they can shed some light on what settings they are using. but obviously it is not a blanket "set it all to max and enjoy" setting.

i'm sure windows is optimized as well to ensure the best performance

Assassins Creed is a terribly optimized game, one of the reasons it's so often used in benchmarks, it's brutal on a cpu's ability to put up fps. Far Cry 5 and Witcher 3 are also hard on a cpu and are all 3 are optimized for 8 thread usage so are really hard on quad cores. With all that weight packed onto 4 thread quads, anything that affects performance will be even larger. Just 1 setting out of place can have disastrous results.

There are also videos out on settings to use for getting better performance for specific games, but don't make the assumption everything is the same. So far you mention just the cpu/gpu. There's no mention of the videos using NVMe drives with the games instead of Sata or hdd. Is the pagefile set on hdd, or ssd, is it a low performance ssd or a Samsung Pro. There's many things that'll affect total fps output that those videos don't explain, aren't forthcoming with etc.
