The Division 2 PC graphics performance: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
The big daddy itself. As we saw in my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review, Nvidia’s second top-end graphics card is just as fast as their GTX 1080 Ti in a lot of things, so you probably can take the results below and apply them to that card as well, given I haven’t been able to get one back in for testing since, well, forever.
Again, I’ve got the Founders Edition here, which has a base clock speed of 1515MHz and a boost clock speed of 1800MHz. This is pretty much bang in the middle of what you’ll find elsewhere on other third-party cards, so the following results should be pretty representative of what other RTX 2080 cards can do as well – although I should note my Core i5 CPU is probably holding it back at 1080p, so those with Core i7s or Ryzen 7s will probably see much higher frame rates at this resolution than what I’ve outlined below.
Can I play this at 1920×1080?
You betcha. Whack it up to Ultra and enjoy smooth frame rates of at least 108fps, no problem.
Can I play this at 2560×1440?
You sure can, and if an average frame rate of 84fps on Ultra isn’t good enough for you, I don’t know what is.
Can I play this at 4K?
Yep! High will yield the smoothest results here with an average of 60fps, but you’ll probably be equally comfortable with an average of 49fps on Ultra as well – especially if you apply some of the settings tweaks outlined on page one of this The Division 2: How to get the best PC settings guide to help you push that figure closer to 60fps.
