GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

Watch_Dogs 2 was finally released on PC yesterday, which allowed us to capture some 1080p footage (with a 1.25 pixel density setting) running at a steady (or close) 60 fps on our rig (i7 6700K @ 4.5 GHz, 16 Go RAM (DDR4), Windows 10, Nvidia GTX 1080 Founder's Edition MSI). We played the game on ultra and also pushed the extra details to 20% and the headlight shadows up to 4 cars. Though the game is quite well optimized (especially compared with the first one), don't expect to max out everything (PCSS and HFTS truly kill the game's performance), even with a GTX 1080.

Glad that you rebooted the PC :D You replied the reboot info at the middle of the night instead of sleeping.
Thanks the vids, will watch them all after work. Did you use the High Res texture pack?

Great vids, though think Ill wait till this is in sales cheap, I don't like the way it looks to be paying a lot for it, they made it look more like GTA and saints row...more cartoon like and less realistic looking.....I can not think of the right way to explain it haha

While the first game was a letdown for me specially graphically I still prefer that look to this new direction

Why does everything look so pixelated/blurred/resharpened (I can't find the right word but I'm sure keen eyes will know what I mean)? Is there any way to eliminate that through the options (maybe it's a terrible temporal AA or some useless option). No screenshot on steam looks like that.

Probably temporal AA, but without it it's bye bye 60 fps at ultra, even with a GTX 1080.

San Francisco was a good choice, I like it. Looks good for an open world game.

You rushed a little bit, walking and slow panning would be better :)

I have a 1080 (the original nvidia version) and I can confirm.

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (2 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (3 Days ago)
