The Division 2 PC graphics performance: PowerColor Radeon RX 590 Red Devil

Yep, it’s another PowerColor, but this time it’s the RX 590 – the closest rival AMD has to Nvidia’s new GTX 1660. Now this card is both more expensive and a fraction slower than Nvidia’s new GPU, but here you get the benefit of AMD’s complete three free games offer – including a free copy of The Division 2 to boot – which arguably makes it better value overall.

Indeed, turning our attention to The Division 2’s benchmark scores, both cards were pretty much neck and neck in overall performance. While this particular PowerColor is quite possibly one of the largest graphics cards I’ve ever seen, this chunky boy should be pretty typical of what most RX 590 cards are capable of here, as its boost clock speed of 1576MHz puts it more or less right in the middle of what you’ll find on other RX 590s.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Uh-huh, and at a lovely 62fps on Ultra to boot.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Uh-huh-uh-huh, especially if you like the idea of 56fps on High, too. I mean, sure, Medium will net you an ultra smooth 71fps if you’ve got a high refresh rate monitor to hand, but everyone else should be pretty happy bumping up the quality here. Indeed, you could probably even manage Ultra with its average frame rate of 44fps if you wanted, especially if you apply the sneaky settings tips outlined over on the first page of this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide

Can I play this at 4K?

Uh-huh-uh-huh-uh-huh, and Medium will get you a decent 40fps average for your trouble, too. Tweak the settings using the same aforementioned tricks as well, as you’re probably looking at something even tastier. Because why settle for 74fps on Low when you could have much prettier graphics and significantly less pop-in on Medium?
