The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Sapphire Radeon R9 270 Dual-X
Good news, R9 270 owners! Your graphics card is one of Ubisoft’s recommended cards for 30fps play at 1920×1080. Even better news, 30fps is a bit of a conservative estimate in my opinion, as I was able to get much higher speeds without having to resort to keeping it on Low.
The R9 270 may only have 2GB of memory to its name, but thanks to The Division 2’s well-oiled PC build, even ancient cards like this can still run it at a fair old cop. Here’s how it got on:
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
Yes, but Medium is going to be about as good it gets here, as even that only produced an average of 43fps. Low will see you laughing all the way up to 74fps, but you can probably push that Medium figure a bit higher by following the settings tweaks discussed back on the first page of this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
I mean, you can, if 50fps on Low sounds appealing to you. Just don’t put it on Medium, otherwise you’ll be experiencing The Division 2 as a 27fps slideshow.
Can I play this at 4K?
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Afraid not, pal.
