At my personal favorite resolution of 1600p (reduce the numbers by roughly 10% for 1440p performance) we find that The Division is extremely demanding, even with the high quality preset. In order to keep the frame rate above 40fps gamers will require a R9 390 or GTX 970, both dipped to the same 40fps with a 48fps average. In order for an average of 60fps+ the R9 Fury or GTX 980 Ti will be required.
This time the R9 Fury X took an 18% performance hit when increasing the image quality with the ultra preset. Although the average frame rate was knocked down to 55fps, the Fury X remained a few frames faster than the GTX 980 Ti, which is an impressive result for AMD.
