For the folks at home trying to figure out how well their GPUs can run the game in the first place, TechSpot has got you covered with a 38-GPU roundup on 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. Apparently, testing wasn’t easy, with accounts being banned in several cases due to an inappropriate number of GPUs or something. The post is a little vague on this intriguing point — intriguing because I’ve never heard of a system being banned from logging in on the basis of hardware configuration changes before, and though it’s been a while, I’ve used both Battlefield 3 and BF4 for benchmarking in the past.

Check TechSpot for the full details, but the 1080p results are below:

I’ve picked 1080p to discuss because this is the resolution for which we have any kind of RTX/ray tracing performance information. In August, reports from Nvidia’s Gamescom RTX launch stated that the RTX 2080 Ti appeared to be working hard to maintain a 60fps target at 1080p. Now we have at least some idea what 1080p performance might look like.
