Ubisoft has confirmed that their 2.40 update for Watch Dogs Legion has added official support for DXR ray tracing on AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards. Previously, the option rendered incorrectly, delivering graphical artefacts and sub-par visuals. 

With this update, Ubisoft has finally made ray tracing comparisons between AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series and Nvidia's RTX 30 series valid, with Ubisoft's patch notes stating that they have "Enabled Ray Tracing for Ray Tracing capable AMD GPUs". Ray tracing in Watch Dogs: Legion has now been optimised for Radeon products, something which wasn't the case when the Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards launched.   

Regardless, Watch Dog Legion's ray tracing implementation was designed with Nvidia hardware in mind, coming through a partnership with Nvidia which also deliver DLSS 2.0 support within the title. While AMD's graphics cards support now support DXR ray tracing within Watch Dogs Legion, only Nvidia can benefit from DLSS, an AI upsampling technology which delivers incredible performance boosts on Nvidia RTX GPUs.

Picked it up half price

Did a quick test with the 6800XT, maxxed out was getting avg 33fps at 1440p, turned down a few settings like shadows and extra details 42fps avg.

It's a pretty nice benchmark really, the reflections are very nice one of the better visuals i've seen for raytracing, still waiting to see if i can get similar in cyberpunk at some stage.

Thou Metro Exodus does sure look pretty, spoilt for choice as to what to really get into atm so many games but assassins creed vallhalla seems to be on my mind to start that Quote
