Destiny 2 Beta PC Performance Review

1080p Benchmarks 

As usual, when benchmarking Destiny 2 we decided to use an area of the game that we found to be exceptionally demanding, which in the case of Destiny 2 means that the majority of the game will be played at higher framerates than this.

Even so, our testing methodology is designed to see whether or not our hardware is capable of handling games when the going gets tough, not in areas of the game where achieving high framerates is an easy thing to accomplish. 

Looking quickly at this graph we can start to see that our benchmarking scenario is somewhat CPU limited, with both the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 achieving very similar minimum framerates. This shows us that when using high-end GPUs at 1080p that users will more likely be CPU limited than GPU limited, requiring users to invest in a CPU with higher clock speeds or performance per clock than our 4GHz i7 6850K.

At 1080p we can also see that the GTX 1060 Strix offers a lot more performance than our RX 480 Strix, which is the opposite of our 1440p results at the same settings. This shows that Nvidia clearly offers the best performance when running the game at lower resolutions, with AMD requiring a higher resolution/load to really stretch its legs.    

The only two GPUs that we have tested that were unable to run this game at over 60FPS for the majority of gameplay are our GTX 960 Strix and R9 380, both of which offer very similar performance levels. Both of these GPUs are able to 60+ FPS averages at high settings, which is great news for those who are still using older graphics hardware.

Interesting seeing the Fury X on the heels of the 1080 Fe in 1440P and 4K.

Brill job as usual WYP !Quote

In terms of average framerate yes, but minimums were not great. Makes me very interested to try a Vega, but alas I don't have a Vega over here.

Interesting game, Destiny 2, but the online elements make it a huge PITA to benchmark. Most people seem to have just used the scripted story bits that were in the beta (time saver), or just didn't try due to the lack of overlay support etc.

Working on a new game already, this week is game week.Quote

Oct 27 in general is game day! I saw an article about how this day in particular with so many releases coming out(Wolfenstien, ACO, Mario, etc) is amongst the most populated game launch days ever. Pretty crazy.Quote

Indeed, and none of them are proving easy to benchmark. Destiny 2 has its online play factoring into things, Assassins Creed Origns... well, we will get to that when the review is finished.

I am not the kind of guy that just runs a benchmark and then is done with a game, most "reviews" have a shocking lack of attention to detail.

Looking forward to getting into Wolfenstein, should be sweet.Quote

Same here. I absolutely love AC, but this time I didn't buy it and instead spent my money on Wolfenstein. Super excited.Quote
