Destiny 2 Beta PC Performance Review

1440p Benchmarks 

One of the first things that should be noted at 1440p is that the order of our GPU lineup changes drastically, with our AMD R9 Fury X and RX 480 GPUs taking significant leaps forward in performance when compared to their respective rivals, the GTX 980 Ti and the GTX 1060.

This favourable performance for AMD at higher resolutions would make AMD's latest RX Vega series extremely interesting to look at, though sadly we do not have any samples to test over at the OC3D gaming workshop. 

We can see that in our worst case benchmarking area that none of our GPUs offers a fully stable 60+ FPS framerate, though turning down the game's depth of field settings to high would be enough to push our GTX 1080 FE over that particular hurdle.  

All of the GPUs that we have tested are capable of playing Destiny 2 at 1440p 60FPS with the correct settings, which is great news for those who can't stand sub-60 framerate dips, with most of the GPUs here requiring the use of High settings to achieve this. Sadly the GTX 1060 and RX 480 will both require some further reductions for complete 60+ stability, though the high preset will keep users above this threshold most of the time.

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
