RTX 2080 Ti fails to run Watch Dogs Legion at 60fps/1080p with Ray-Tracing On

On Sunday, July 12, Ubisoft revealed the gameplay of Watch Dogs Legion, which is an upcoming addition to the Watch Dogs series. The game was played using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with its advanced features like Ray-Tracing, and yet it could not achieve an average of 60fps during the gameplay.

Although the game is not fully optimized as it is still under development and the new driver updates will allow the RTX 2080 Ti to reach a stable 60fps mark. The fact that a high-end card with Ray Tracing failing to maintain a stable FPS was astonishing, and to date, achieving 60fps seems miles away.

Digital Foundry publication tells us that the game was initially being played at 1920×1080 ultra resolution at 30fps (2080ti was able to maintain stable Frames Per Second), but once it was shifted to 60fps, there were visible fps drops.

Watch Dogs Legion is expected to be launched on October 29, 2020. The final game will be launched with DLS2.0, which will undoubtedly enhance the card’s performance, but the recent lack proves that it will be challenging to play at 1080p resolution at 60fps for all the mid-range cards.

Also, we might have to drop the resolution to 720p and the frames to 30fps even after all the updates and DLS2.0 support. Let us just hope it is not CPU intensive compared to the load it brings on to your GPU. Along with the load, you will also face heating issues, but since Watch Dogs series has made a place in the hearts of the gamers so they will overcome every odd to play the game.
