And now? RTX 2080Ti does not maintain 1080P 60FPS in Watch Dogs Legion with Ray Tracing

This Sunday (12) Ubisoft held its Forward, an event in which it revealed details of its main releases for the coming months. The presentation was thought in the face of the cancellation of E3 2020 due to the pandemic of COVID-19, and had the presence of long-awaited titles, such as Far Cry 6, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs Legion.

The company had previously confirmed that it would implement Nvidia’s RTX technology in the hacking game, and allowed some media outlets to test a few hours of the novelty. THE Digital Foundry was one of them and, as usual, the channel performed a technical analysis of the game in its current state, revealing some curious and somewhat worrying details.

The tested Watch Dogs Legion build was running on a machine equipped with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti, the most powerful video card of the moment, and already brought reflexes via Ray Tracing enabled. Whether for lack of optimization or for being a very demanding game, the card was not able to maintain a fixed frame rate at around 60FPS, even running in Full HD resolution.

The situation is impressive, considering that the 2080Ti is more than capable of running titles in 4K, even with the use of RTX technology. We have already seen the board suffer in a similar way in tests of the also awaited Cyberpunk 2077 with Ray Tracing, but different from the Ubisoft game, which adopts only reflections, the application in Cyberpunk also covered shadows and global lighting.

However, Cyberpunk 2077 was already using DLSS 2.0, a technology that uses Artificial Intelligence to upscaling the image, thus recovering performance, while Watch Dogs Legion did not yet have the feature enabled. Until its release, the title should implement the function, thus relieving stress on GPUs. You can see the complete Digital Foundry review in the following video:

The question now is to know how Ray Tracing will be applied in the PlayStation 5 and in Xbox Series X, considering that, as they are equipped with AMD hardware, they do not bring DLSS, and there is no replacement announced so far. Watch Dogs Legion arrives on October 29 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, in addition to the new generation consoles.
