An RTX 3080 for 1080p 60 FPS? Dying Light 2's Ray Tracing Requirements are Insanity

Dying Light 2's PC system requirements are here, and they are insane!  

Dying Light 2 is shaping up to be one of the most demanding PC games of 2022. Techland has just released Dying Light 2's PC system requirements, and they promise to bring even today's highest-end systems to their knees.

On PC, Dying Light will launch with heavy support for DXR ray tracing on PC. The game will support ray traced shadows, ray traced global illumination, and ray traced reflections, features that will be supplemented with support for Nvidia's DLSS technology.

Dying Light 2 is a game that is "enhanced with RTX", which means that Nvidia has been working with Techland to create the game's PC version. That means that Dying Light 2's ray tracing implementation is designed to impress, but also that it is designed to be used with DLSS to make high frame rates feasible with RT is enabled.

For 1080p 60 FPS framerates at 1080p at High RT settings, Techland recommends Nvidia's RTX 3080 graphics card, a GPU that is currently one of the most powerful GPUs on the market. For these settings, Techland doesn't even recommend AMD's RX 6000 series graphics cards, suggesting that Dying Light 2's RT implementation runs best on Geforce RTX graphics cards.

Thankfully, Dying Light 2 is much easier to run on PC when RT is disabled, with Nvidia's RTX 2060 and AMD's RX Vega 56 being more than powerful enough to run Dying Light 2 at 1080p 60 FPS at High settings. For 1080p low settings, older GPUs like AMD's RX 560 4GB and Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti should be more than powerful enough. 

Below are Dying Light 2's PC system requirements;

RT Off - Minimum System Requirements

Performance - 1080p 60 FPS

An RTX 3080 for 1080p 60 FPS? Dying Light 2's Ray Tracing Requirements are Insanity 

While Nvidia's DLSS technology will likely allow Nvidia's RTX 3080 to target higher screen resolutions on PC, the fact that Techland's recommending Nvidia's RTX 3080 for 1080p 60 FPS gameplay is utter insanity. Techland's pushing ray tracing hard with Dying Light 2, and we will likely need to wait for Nvidia's RTX 40 series before we will be able to see that game at 4K 60 FPS on PC as maxed out RT settings, even with DLSS.

Well the 4000 series is meant to come out around October'ish 2022 so we're gonna be waiting a while, If it's anything like DL1 then it should be ok'ish to run.Quote

Yeah, meant to be... Add a number of months to that with the shortages that will likely still be around at the time of their launch Quote
