The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Asus GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 is one of the most popular graphics cards on the planet, judging by Steam’s hardware charts, and with good reason. It’s powerful enough to do high quality 1080p play, and even a bit of 1440p – which holds true here as well.

I should point out that the Asus GeForce GTX 1060 OC 9Gbps edition I’ve got here isn’t actually available to buy any more, but with a base clock speed of 1584MHz and a boost clock speed of 1809MHz, it’s definitely one of the faster models that was ever made. The only GTX 1060 cards with faster clock speeds are Asus’ own ROG Strix model and EVGA’s SSC Gaming ACX 3.0 version. As a result, the results below are probably a best case scenario for current 6GB GTX 1060 owners, but there’s still a lot to like here.

Can I play this at 1920×1080?

Absolutely. Whack it up to Ultra and you’ll get a very agreeable average of 55fps straight off the bat at this resolution, but those who want an absolutely guaranteed 60fps should switch to High, where you’ll see an average of 66fps. Still, apply some of the settings tweaks I mentioned on the first page of this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide and you’ll probably be able to get that Ultra average up to 60fps in no time.

Can I play this at 2560×1440?

Yes indeedy. Medium is your best bet here, averaging around 54fps, but High will still net you a perfectly playable average of 44fps as well. And remember, that’s what you’re looking at outside. Indoors, you’ll get smoother frame rates that go even higher.

Can I play this at 4K?

Not really. Like the GTX 970, you can get a playable 50fps on Low at this resolution (Medium will see it judder and jam to just 27fps), but you’d be much better off playing at lower resolutions here and getting a prettier-looking game as a result.
