Dishonored 2 PC Performance Review
Published: 13th November 2016 | Source: OC3D | Price: |
At 1440p the only GPU that can maintain an average framerate of over 60FPS is Nvidia's GTX 1080, which means that everyone who owns a consumer-oriented GPU today will need to lower their game settings or resolution in order to able to achieve a steady 60FPS.
Here we can see that the R9 Fury X's performance tanks at this resolution, being outperformed by AMD's newer but lower end RX 480. This performance degradation is likely due to the GPUs small 4GB frame buffer, which is smaller than every other GPU on the graph.
Right now Bethesda only recommends that users of a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 play Dishonored 2 at 1440p, which means that users of lower end GPUs should stick to 1080p for now.
