4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

 

When changing Watch Dogs 2's graphical settings the largest differences can be seen when viewing objects at a distance, with lower graphical settings offering significantly less detail, especially when looking at trees, grass and shrubs. 

Texture detail changes drastically when moving through the game's graphical settings, with 1080p medium settings using just over 2GB of VRAM. It is important that all prospective players of the game make sure that they have at leat 2GB of VRAM to play this game, though 4GB or more is preferable for the highest texture quality. 

PC players will want to play Watch Dogs 2 with high-quality settings to have a pleasing visual experience. At Medium and low graphical settings, there is a lot of visual pop-in, particularly when driving.

Question, How did the VRAM usage go to 9.2GB on the 1080 when there's only 8GB of VRAM ?

Daym son! Just got me a 1070, looks like I'm going to need a Titan X.. jokes 1080p is more than adequate and I'm liking the 1070 results. Top job Mark.

EDIT: P.S the sliders thing is epic!Quote

This is why I don't play games in the first year of their release—or in this case the second. I'd rather wait when hardware has caught up. With a Fury at 1440p, I'd be looking at a mixture of medium and high settings. I didn't expect to have to do that quite so soon—and that's still only 60 FPS. I do wish this was better optimised for AMD hardware.

edit: Though, actually, now that I've looked very closely at the 4k screenshots, there really doesn't appear to be that big of a difference between Medium and Ultra. There is definitely a texture sharpness to the Ultra settings that Medium and High do not have, but there isn't a great deal I can see otherwise.Quote

For the final one, I just used the VRAM usage monitor in the settings menu. I checked the VRAM usage in-game and it used the full 8GB on the 1080.

The VRAM usage scale in the settings is very accurate.Quote

I'm hoping for some performance improvements in this title in the near future. I'd like to play it at ultra at 1440p w/ a single 1080 and have 60+ FPS. It's disappointing that that's currently not possible 24/7.Quote
