4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

The visual difference between Destiny 2's graphical presets can be very difficult to spot outside of a side-by-side comparison, especially when players are not hugging the walls and terrain to judge texture detail.  

One of the biggest graphical changes that can be seen in Destiny 2 is the increase in Texture detail when moving through each graphical preset, especially for wall details parts of the game's terrain. 

Lighting, shadows and Ambient Occlusions will also have a huge impact on the scene, though the game doesn;t exactly look bad when playing at lower graphical detail settings, ugly textures aside.  

Destiny 2 players can easily enjoy a pleasing experience graphically at lower graphics quality presets, especially if they have enough VRAM to play the game with higher resolution textures.

Well they didn't use 16 threads like they said they would. Though hitting 8 threads and still seeing performance increases is still impressive. I'm not even sure it would be worth them using more threads at this point. For Ryzen 7 in particular, with all those extra threads getting little usage, if you were to stream you would have A LOT of extra headroom for the stream and should be able to do it without much problem.Quote

Support for SMT is pretty broken in Destiny 2 ATM, though it could be fixed before launch. We will have to wait and see. That is the things with Beta releases, they are subject to change.Quote

Yeah I understand. I just think it should not be broken since they so confidently claimed they will use 16 threads. If it's broken doesn't give much hope at launch
But still not many games even use 8 cores. So it's still an achievementQuote

Indeed! On my Ryzen 5 and gtx 1080 the game runs at 100fps with max settings.Quote
