Tom Clancy's The Division 2 PC performance thread

My system:

i7 4790k
1080 Ti
16GB RAM
Win 10

Game-settings:

- 1620p
- maxed out, except:
shadows: high
objects and streaming: 7/10
no CA, no motion blur

I ran the benchmark several times (3x DX11, 3x DX12), with driver-versions 419.17 and 419.35.
There were no performance-differences between driver-versions except for an odd one-second-freeze in DX12 with 419.35 in a certain scene.

Overall, DX12 runs smoother, stuttering feels "less stuttery" and the lowest framerate was 61FPS (DX11: 53FPS).
In taxing scenes like the shootout, I got a FPS-boost of 5-10 frames in DX12.
But ingame, DX12 seems to be kind of broken for me because the game crashed several times and the ingame menu stutters a lot.
Have you tried disabling the Uplay overlay when using DX12? That's supposedly helping to solve crashes based on users' reports.

I won't be able to play until Thursday afternoon, due to work (Ultimate edition). However, i would like a heads-up from anyone that could help.

I have a 2080, i7-9700k and 32gb RAM. My monitor is capped at 60 refresh rate. I was able to just set it at 1440p with max settings and get locked 60fps in the beta. I'm wondering if I should just stick with that or try and lower some settings at 4k to achieve a locked 60? Anyone have any suggestions? Obviously if I lower too much, it would just look better at 1440p. I was thinking maybe Resolution Scale would do the trick?

Setting: Default GeForce Experience setting
- 85% resolution rendered.

Avg 77 fps - 6907 Benchmark score

Going to the Ubisoft Club Challenges menu TANKS my frame rate the same as overlay notifications did before I turned them off. Something about accessing non-Division 2 servers is busted or something

Edit: aaaaand there's my first crash. I'm using DX12

What driver is everyone using? 419.35 is the newest but that's the one I have on my dektop and it always crashes. My laptop has 419.17 and it's fine. Maybe it's a coincidence.
Edit: Ok, changed driver to 419.17 and still crashes. Well no idea then.

I've got the same specs but at 1080p 120 hz refresh rate. What driver are you using? Planning on getting the game this week and am excited to see those fps numbers.

Game keeps launching in windowed mode... is there any way to force it to launch in fullscreen?

Asked this a few times with no response in discord/the OT. Hoping someone knows something....

EDIT: figured it out if anyone else needs solution:

My documents -> My games -> The Division 2 -> state.cfg - open in notepad, change "fullscreen=false" to "fullscreen=true" - save - fixed!

Yeh, it will.

TX, USA
i7 4790k 4.0Ghz
RTX 2080
16GB RAM
1440p Gsync

Ran benchmarks with default game settings which had everything high or ultra.
DX11 Score 7282, AVG 83fps - some frame stuttering and texture pop in.
DX12 Score 7889 AVG 88fps - smoother framerate and I didn't notice the texture pop in.

Only got to the base of operations so far, but the game looks and runs great.

Very curious how this will run on a Ryzen 5 2400g with 16ghz RAM @3200mhz. I mainly play games at 720p or 900p so haven't really run into anything I can't play comfortably with a few graphical tweaks. I'll be getting it free since I took advantage of the recent promotion, so I'm not really out anything if it runs like crap though (plus I plan on getting a dedicated gpu by the end of the year).

In-game benchmark results

Fully maxed, 1440, Resolution scaling 85%


Same as above but resolution scaling at 100%


A +10fps increase, and 85% is barely noticeable to me so I think I'll stick with that. Pretty pleased with the performance overall.

How's it running for people with mid/low-end PC's.

I was getting around 70-80 in the beta but with a bunch of stuttering on DX12.

According to the first page captures, English names are :
- Object detail
- Extra streaming distance

The second one was the most important in the first game, it greatly extended the world details, thus higher CPU usage.
Appreciated
What GPU+driver do you use?
I had a lot of crashes with 419.17 and none since I installed the new driver (419.35).
2080 latest drivers

Can someone please answer whether they kept the graphical setting to disable the fake lighting? It was an absolute visual gamechanger in the first one.

There’s no option but, in my opinion, the default lighting is somewhere in between the default Div 1 and the neutral lighting option, and closer to neutral. Night time is pretty dark in Div 2.

Getting annoying stutters that were not a thing during the open beta. Going to try DX11 to see if anything changes. Game looks amazing though, coming from playing the original game last week, this is a definitive improvement in all areas. HDR also looks awesome on PC.

I feel like I was typically over 100fps @1440p on ultra with my 1080ti in the beta. I have a 9900k though, and the game is cpu intensive.
That's pretty amazing, seeing as how it looked like I was averaging around 40fps plus stuttering with a 1080 Ti and a 4.5ghz 3570k at 3440x1440 in the beta

DX 12 is once again completely fucking broken and crashes every few minutes for me, just like ion the beta. I've tried closing RivaTuner, updated drivers, etc. and nothing works. Such a bummer since the lighting looks drastically better & the performance is better for me. Anyone have a fix yet?

Really hope a driver fixes these hitches. It's like 2-3 times a session, but it just hangs for a solid second or two. Other than that it runs incredible, but when it happens it just feels like shit

Have you been monitoring your resources when it happens? Could be hitting the limit on your RAM or something.

When I try to run with an unlocked framerate on my i5 6600k I get a serious bottleneck (unsurprisingly). Limiting the frames to 60 keeps everything stable at least.
