Destiny 2 is out today on consoles but the PC gamers will have to wait another six weeks to play on their computers. There were some beta tests that will put a smile on your face if you are a PC gamer, these test proving that Bungie really means it when they said they wanted to bring bespoke features for the platform.
Multi-monitor support, Ultrawide and arbitrary resolution support, multi-GPU and HDR support unlocked frame rate up to 200FPS, customizable Field of view from 55 to 105 degrees Destiny 2 covers it all.
There is a single most important aspect when running a game on PC that is performance and Destiny 2 fully delivers on that front as well. In fact, the Digital Foundry’s recent test bodes extremely well for the game.
4K on GTX 970
With Pentium G4560 and GTX 970 clocked at 3.50 GHz Destiny 2 can easily run at native 4K and it is pretty much locked 30 frames per second with High preset, 16X Anisotropic Filtering and textures on highest.
What about 60FPS target? It is the thing where things become more interesting in Digital Foundry’s test after properly overclocking GTX 970 and dropping few graphic settings and resolution to 1800P ((3200×1800), Destiny 2 runs at 60FPS most of the time. There may be few drops to 40s or 50s in a loaded instance.
These are impressive results for a game that hasn’t even shipped yet. Bungie could optimize the game further for all we know, but things are already looking rosy.
