The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 OC
Our new best graphics card champion for 1080p gaming, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is a fantastic graphics card for the money. With 6GB of memory, it’s got plenty of heft to deal with The Division 2’s higher quality settings, and this particular model from Gigabyte is one of the cheapest types going, too, giving us a great idea of what to expect from even the most entry-level cards you can buy today.
With a base clock speed of 1530MHz and a boost clock speed of 1830MHz, this is pretty typical of a lot of GTX 1660 cards out there at the moment, so the results below should be broadly representative of what you’ll get on other makes of card as well.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
Indeed you can, and you can even get an average of 64fps on Ultra from the get go, too. Those with high refresh rate monitors will probably want to drop it down to High, though, as this will net you a tasty average of 82fps.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
Saddle up partner, because if an average of 55fps on High isn’t good enough for you, I don’t know what is. Ultra will still get you a playable 44fps, but you’ll have to apply the tweaks outlined on the first page of this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide to push it back closer to 60fps.
Can I play this at 4K?
Surprisingly, yes! Provided you’re down with loads of pop-in on Low, you can get a sweet 72fps average, but if you’re really desperate to play it on this resolution, you can probably get away with putting it on Medium and using the settings tweaks mentioned above to bump up its default average of 38fps to something a bit more acceptable. Or, you know, just stick to 55fps on High at 1440?
