The Risk Assessment Table is a record required to fulfill a mandatory clause of ISO 27001 (6.1.2 - Information Security Risk Assessment), and it includes the risks related to the assets you identify that are relevant to information security.

The Asset Register is a record required only if control A.8.1.1 (Inventory of Assets) is applicable, and it includes relevant information about assets, like its location, owner, version, etc. For smaller companies the Risk Assessment Table can be used as Asset register since it contains similar information.
