The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming
Now we’re cooking with gas. One of Ubisoft’s own recommendations for playing The Division 2 at 60fps at a resolution of 2560×1440, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 owners should have no trouble at all getting this game running whatsoever. With 8GB of memory at its disposal, this card is much more capable of handling higher textures at higher resolutions, so as long as you stick to either 1920×1080 or 2560×1440, you’re golden.
I should note that, thanks to its high base and boost clock speeds of 1632MHz and 1835MHz, the Asus ROG Strix Gaming edition I’ve got here is one of the faster GTX 1070 cards out there at the moment, so the results below are probably more of a best-case scenario for this type of card as opposed to something a bit more general. However, as you’ll soon see, you’re still looking at some pretty smooth frame rates regardless of what particular model you happen to have.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
Yep, and you can go straight in with an average of 72fps on Ultra, too.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
Double yep. You’ll get the smoothest speeds on High, which averaged 63fps in the game’s benchmarking tool, but you’ll probably be equally comfortable on Ultra to be honest, as this still produced a highly playable average of 50fps. Apply some of the tricks I talked about on the first page on this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide and an Ultra-fied 60fps should be perfectly within reach.
Can I play this at 4K?
Triple yep, although here you’ll probably have to make do with Medium if you want to steer clear of a frame rate in the mid-30s. With this quality setting, you’re looking at an average of 43fps for the most part, but as I said above, you should be able to push that closer to 60fps by following the tips outlined on the first page of this guide.
