Tom Clancy's The Division PC Performance Review

4K Testing with AMD R9 Fury X and Nvidia GTX 980Ti

 

When testing this game we decided to use the games built in benchmarking tool, as we found the benchmark's average framerate performance to be very similar to that in game performance, though we also found the minimum framerates in the benchmark to be lower than what we experienced in gameplay. 

Typically at 4K we found that average GPU performance was identical to the benchmark tool, but our recorded Minimum framerates were around  8FPS higher on average, meaning that the game is fairly playable at 4K if you can handle dips below 60. 

At 4K we can see that R9 Fury X take the lead over the Nvidia GTX 980Ti in almost all cases, but it is clear that both GPUs are pretty close contenders given their similar average framerates. When looking at both GPUS minimum framerates we can see that AMD has the clear advantage, offering the more stable gaming experience, though I would not personally recommend playing the game at much higher than the games low preset at 4K, unless you have a multi-GPU setup.

Im benching some results right now. I clearly see an issue with Gsync at the moment. Ill post some results when im done.

Look at the FPS loss with Gsync turned on with SLI. I thought SLI was fine until i started benching some results. I just kept it simple and consistent. Results are an average of 3 runs per variation. And this is with the new Nvidia drivers intended for The Division.

Using a ROG Swift Monitor with refresh set at 120hz via Nvidia panel. Interesting was that when using windowed mode in game, it automatically locked refresh to 60hz as opposed to the 120hz set by default.

Do you have actual 4k images uploaded anywhere I can view comparing the graphics settings? Either I'm missing something embarrassingly obvious or the images are far too small to actually compare.Quote

Noticed the 1440p benches are from beta, as noted in the screenshot title. Do you have updated benches for live? I have a 5930k (overclocked to 4.4) and a 980ti (also slightly overclocked) - with those settings I barely make mid 50s to 60 in-game. Especially with the NVAO+ stuff on. I don't see how you get 100 avg fps.Quote
