Destiny 2 review: benchmarks on 25 graphics cards

Fighting aliens, with SLI/CrossFire, Ryzen and the 'magical' Nvidia driver

Introduction

Call of Duty: WW2 is not the only important game that Activision have released this autumn. Destiny 2 is an action multiplayer developed by Bungie, which takes place in far in the future of humanity. There is only one city remaining for the humankind and it is being fought over against aliens. We have measured this game thoroughly with 25 graphics cards, in three resolutions and two levels of settings. We have also looked at SLI/Crossfire and CPU scaling.  


Destiny 2 is the sequel of the first game which came out in 2014 and contrary to the older one it is also available for PC. It fits somewhere between an RPG and a shooter with a story line of missions, multiplayer battles and interactions with bots.

Bungie used a unique engine for Destiny 2 which runs on Direct X 11. The minimum system requirements are: Pentium G4560 of AMD FX-4350 with a TX 1050 of HD 7850 and 6 GB RAM, but a Core i5 or Ryzen 5 with a GTX 1060 or R9 390 is recommended. On top of that the 8 GB of RAM is required as well. The game is exclusively available in the Battle.net app by Blizzard.

The reviewers are in agreement that the second part if an improvement on the first and name the gameplay and soundtrack as some of the strongest points. The praise also goes to the amount of content and it is called a no-brainer for the fans by some.  

In the Price Comparison the PC version of Destiny 2 is available from 40 euro. Via Battle.net you can get the standard edition for 45 pounds / 60 euros.
