The Division 2 PC Performance Review

1080p Performance - Benchmark Results

Even at 1080p The Division 2 can be a demanding release, requiring a Geforce GTX 1070/AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 or better to achieve a steady 60+ FPS at Ultra settings. 

For our main GPU tests, we will look at DirectX 12 performance exclusively, as we found that this API delivered the best performance at this resolution on both Radeon and Geforce graphics cards. 

With our older GTX 960 and R9 380 graphics cards, game performance was abysmal, though this is primarily due to the small 2GB frame buffers on each GPU. Look on page 12 for a performance optimisation guide for both of these graphics cards. Stable framerates are possible, but not without sacrifices. 

Moving on to our GTX 1060 6GB and RX 580 graphics cards, we know that both GPUs can offer a stable 60+ FPS when using the game's high preset, granting these GPUs a great balance between graphical fidelity and high framerate gameplay. Higher-end graphics cards can achieve 60+ FPS framerates at Ultra. 

As we reach the RTX 2070 and higher, minimum framerate scaling pretty much stops and the game becomes CPU bound in certain instances. Yes, average framerates continue to rise, but it looks like we will need a higher-end processor to achieve higher minimum framerates. Our 4GHz i7-6850K isn't the best CPU by today's standards, especially when modern Coffee Lake series CPUs can reach clock speeds as high as 5GHz.

I've got mine on ultra @1440p. Initially I put it on 1080p, but I was getting huge dips in frames when going from inside levels to outside. Like, 110FPS down to 30. I set it to 1440p, now it's like 80 inside and 40 outside. I would guess it's my low clocked CPU causing the anomaly.

Great game, and so much better than the first. The drone is the stuff of legend. It's just an absolute riot throwing it up in the air and then sending it around to bother people. It also acts as brilliant cover fire to stop them firing at you Quote

Yeah, that sounds like low CPU clocks. This thing scales to a lot of cores, but single-threaded performance is a great thing to have.Quote

I let nvidia decide it put me on med high mixture, but I don't think SLI is supported which sucks for me since I'm 970 sli, it runs fine but normally I'd be able to play max and get similar framerate and something tells me it won't get added, only found out since it was set to single card in global settings and if I put it on afr2 it didn't sync correctly but maybe a fix will happen.

My ryzen is barely breaking a sweat in games hardly ever gets to 30% load it's so nice to have a chip that really can handle multi tasking.Quote

its been cpu bottlenecking. Im getting those dips on any setting.

the skills bug though is downright annoying. Worse than most of the crap in Anthem.
I use shield, run it and it despawns...

Same with most skills, they just disappear and go on a 15sec timer. Luckily Massive are investigating, but it ruins the fun of skill use so much.Quote

Hmm. I've had so much fun with the turret and drone I've not tried any other skills yet. The drone and turret don't last long if you don't keep them moving. They will get shot down. The art is hiding and letting them rip, continually using a RB and LB to switch targets. Then when they do break I just pop up with my big sod off machine gun and mop up.Quote
