At least this is what NVIDIA itself claims. It is still difficult for ordinary players to check this, both due to the absence of a GeForce RTX 4090 and, to put it mildly, the problematic start of Overwatch 2 yesterday.
From the RTX 40×0 line, the top model RTX 4090 should go on sale first, as soon as next week, and NVIDIA is “warming up the audience” by publishing its own performance charts of the new video cards.
So, according to the company, the GeForce RTX 4090 shows as many as 507 frames/sec in Overwatch 2 at a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and Ultra graphics settings (when used in a system with an Intel i9-12900k processor). At the same time, RTX 4080 16 GB is noticeably “lagging behind” – it is able to produce “only” 368 fps. The big difference between the 16GB and 12GB versions of the RTX 4080 (~70 fps) is because, in many ways, the RTX 4080 12GB is actually a rebranded RTX 4070.
Based on this, NVIDIA provides the following recommendations for comfortable playing in Overwatch 2:
- 1080p 144+ fps NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060
- 1080p 360+ fps NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
- 1440p 360+ fps NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (16 GB)
