In their testing of the new PC port of Destiny 2, The Guru of 3D made some interesting discoveries. The first is that at 1080p, the game's performance can be somewhat limited by your CPU, but not at 1440p or higher resolutions. The second finding is the impressive showing of AMD's Vega 64 and 56 at 1440p and 4K, which both outperform the GTX 1080. It may be that NVIDIA will release an optimized driver and repeat the improvements seen in Forza 7 but for now AMD is in the lead.
"We test that PC enhanced Destiny 2 for Windows relative towards graphics card performance with the latest AMD/NVIDIA graphics card drivers. Multiple graphics cards are being tested and benchmarked. We have a look at performance with the newest graphics cards and technologies."
