By Jon Sutton on January 10th, 2019 at 09:58am - original article from game-debate

We're finally waking up from a groggy start to the new year with Ubisoft revealing the PC system requirements for The Division 2, probably the biggest release of Q1 2019. The Division 2 is set to offer more of the same addictive co-op loot shooting, this time with all of the valuable lessons learned from the original's post-launch successes and failures. TD2 is out on March 15th and here are the PC system specs requirement for The Division 2.

This is a comprehensive set of specs for The Division 2 that Ubisoft has provided and we love comprehensive specs. Each of the four requirements settings details a specific resolution and frame rate it's targeting, providing a nice firm idea of where you can expect performance to be on your system.

Fortunately for those without ultra high-end systems, The Division 2's system requirements are only a moderate increase over 2016's The Division. The minimum requirements for The Division 2 are nice and light, demanding a 2GB video card paired with a quad-core processor from the last six or seven years. Unfortunately, the minimum spec Radeon R9 270 or GeForce GTX 670 may spell trouble for those using a GTX 750 Ti, GTX 950, R7 360 and the like. A Radeon RX 550 should just about squeak into these minimum specs and achieve 30fps on 1080p at Low. If you are struggling for performance in The Division 2 then 720p is always an option.

The most popular performance target for The Division 2 will be 1080p at 60 frames per second, and anyone with a spec meeting the recommended requirements should be just fine. Higher-clocked CPUs are needed for the jump from 30 to 60 fps, paired with a mid-range graphics card from the previous gen.

The rest of the system specs are a little more niche, offering 1440p and 4K options in TD2 for those who have higher resolution monitors. You'll need an appropriate 70-80% bump in hardware performance to push 1440p in The Division 2, as well as doubling the required RAM from 8GB to 16GB. Those with a 1440p monitor probably have decent, capable systems though, and the GTX 1070 and Vega 56 are popular at this particular resolution.

For those who want the best of the best, we've also got the 4K 60FPS system requirements for Division 2. Basically, you need a $2500 system to achieve this so you'll need deep pockets. Top-end 8+ core CPUs are allegedly required, paired with the very best graphics cards Nvidia and AMD have to offer. For Nvidia, this means the $1200 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, while for AMD, the newly announced Radeon VII should do the trick. Radeon VII performance is on par with an RTX 2080 so it'll be interesting to see how this shakes out.
