The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Asus GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Phoenix
Another new best graphics card entry here, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is our new benchmark for flawless 1080p gaming and super high quality 1440p play, too. And what a great partner it makes for The Division 2, offering super fast frame rates across a variety of resolutions.
This particular model from Asus is one of the cheaper GTX 1660 Ti cards out there, too, so those with faster, more expensive versions of this card may well get even better results than what I’ve detailed below. Indeed, compared to Asus’ more upmarket ROG Strix OC edition that I also tested for my main review, the Phoenix was on average around 2-5fps behind its ROG counterpart. Still, as you’ll see below, even the Phoenix’s results are pretty damn tasty.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
Absolutely. Fire it up, crank it up to Ultra and enjoy an average frame rate of 72fps.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
Abso-positively-lutely. High is probably where you’ll be most comfortable at this resolution thanks to the Phoenix’s average frame rate of 63fps, but even an average of 49fps on Ultra is probably doable to be honest – especially if you have a faster GTX 1660 Ti card, or you apply the tips detailed on the first page of this here The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide. Either way, the GTX 1660 Ti is more than capable of fast frame rates here, so just pick whichever quality setting you’re happiest with.
Can I play this at 4K?
Sort of, yes. I mean, an average of 43fps on Medium isn’t anything to be sniffed at here, but you’ll only be able to make up the shortfall by dropping down to Low, where I saw an average of 80fps. Still, apply the same sneaky settings tweaks linked above here and you’ll no doubt be able to squeeze another bunch of frames out of it to take that figure closer to 60fps.
