The Division 2 PC graphics performance: AMD Radeon R9 290

Every time I do one of these graphics card performance tests, the AMD Radeon R9 290 remains a constant surprise. Despite being several generations old now, this fighter can still knock it about with the rest of them. That’s largely thanks to its healthy dollop of 4GB of memory, which stands it in much better stead than the R9 270 when it comes to tackling today’s big games.

This reference card only has a single fan to keep its innards cool, too, so chillier versions with more sophisticated cooling systems may well find themselves able to beat these times as well.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Yep, and you can even get a very agreeable average of 53fps on High, too. Medium will get you an even smoother experience with its average of 71fps if you’d rather not tinker about with the settings tweaks I’ve suggested on the first page of this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide, but I think you’ll agree that 53fps on High ain’t half bad for a card like this.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Double yep, although you’re probably better off with Medium here and its average of 51fps. Again, Low will see it shooting all the way up to 87fps, but with lots of pop-in present on this quality setting you’ll thank yourself later for sticking with Medium.

Can I play this at 4K?

I mean, there’s sort of a triple-yep here, as Low will net you a pretty smooth 54fps if for some reason you’re absolutely desperate to play this at 4K, but push the quality any higher and you’ll see it disintegrate into a 29fps horror show.
