PC owners finally get the chance to try out the first person masterpiece from Bungie, Destiny 2, after watching the original launch on consoles in 2014.  Destiny 2 builds on the success of the original, and incorporates role-playing elements within a sci-fi shared world shooter.  Activision and Bungie have made the PC version worth waiting for, by adding 4k capabilities, HDR, and uncapped frame-rates to show off the incredible power of PC Gaming.

Recommended System Requirements:

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X (or Intel Core i5-7400)
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Video Card: Radeon™ R9 390 or higher

 

Performance looks great on the Radeon™ RX Series products, and with a capable Radeon™ FreeSync capable monitor, you’ll get a much better experience with the PC version of Destiny 2.

 

With an AMD Ryzen™ 5 1600X processor, and a Radeon™ RX graphics card, I was able to get well over 60fps using some really impressive settings.

 

For Destiny 2 it all came down to deciding whether to run at the ultimate resolution, or moving down one notch on the settings scale.  If you don’t mind moving down the resolution scale, then you’ll be able to move settings up a level to those posted below (ie: running a Radeon RX 580 at 1080p and Highest settings).

Make sure you are using the latest Radeon™ Software driver with the latest optimizations HERE (trust me on this one – the software team did some great work for Destiny 2).
