The Division 2 Benchmarked: 20 Graphics Cards Tested (Page 9)

Final Thoughts

There you have it. 20 graphics cards. 70-80 hours of benchmarking, re-benchmarking, and writing this article. That doesn't include the 20 hours or so I've put into the game to experience The Division 2 at 4K Ultra graphics to write about it. I didn't want to benchmark and do this deep dive into performance across 20 graphics cards without playing it, right? It turns out that it kicks serious ass, and is definitely worth your attention.

The Division 2 Benchmarked: 20 Graphics Cards Tested 17 |

The Division 2 is one of the best looking games I've come across, and I'm a major critic of graphics. We've seen such a low focus on the PC versions of big releases that when a company like Ubisoft, notorious for watering down its games--and hell, even the original Division was watered down. I was a major critic of it back then, and can safely say Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment massively stepped up (pun not intended, but it works well here) for The Division 2.

It scales incredibly well with most graphics cards, so that even an older-gen GeForce GTX 980 Ti still provides you with 1080p 60FPS+ at Ultra settings. You can't complain about that at all. Pumping up to 1440p and 4K at Ultra/High settings you're going to want the best graphics card you can get if you want to maintain or exceed 60FPS.

But it's worth it. The world of The Division 2 is rich with detail and substance, every nook and cranny has been crafted beautifully by the good people of Massive Entertainment. The lighting, particle, and weather effects are some of the best I've seen so far. I was constantly saying "holy sh*t" and "OMG look at this environment" every time I logged into The Division 2.

Now the performance of The Division 2 is out of the way, you should definitely go and check it out, it has been a blast in my time playing with it and I'm only barely scratching the surface of what the gmae has to offer from its PvP mode in the Dark Zone.

All we need now is faster graphics cards to handle 4K 120FPS... I don't think we'll see The Division 2 running at 4K 120FPS on Ultra settings this year, or heck, even 2020. Still, there is always hope! The Division 2 would look INSANE on a huge 65-inch 4K 120Hz BFGD TV from NVIDIA, but even their latest GeForce RTX 2080 Ti can't run it at 4K 60FPS on Ultra settings.

Maybe I should try get the TITAN RTX to play with? ;)
