Destiny 2 Video Card Settings, Destiny 2 is expected to set the screen on fire with its maximum resolution of 4,000 and unfaltering 60 frames per second. Depending on your video card setting for Destiny 2, it can reportedly run up to 118 fps on Nvidia GeForce Titan XP.

Bungie initially planned to launch Destiny 2 in September but they said they wanted to make sure they live up to the gamers’ expectations and to get things right. With the PC Beta on August 29 to 31, they will have lots of time to check, tweak, and test Destiny 2 before the official release date. Meanwhile, Nvidia and AMD have already started their preparation for Destiny 2. Last week, Nvidia released new WHQL drivers, the GeForce 385.41 driver package, which is reported “game ready.” The update’s highlights include optimizations and support for Destiny 2’s uncapped frame rates, field of view (FOV) modifications, built-in 4,000 resolution, and 4k Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR).


AMD also released new Radeon software drivers to address some performance issues. The latest update, also called “Crimson ReLive Edition 17.8.2” is said to improve the stability, efficiency, and performance of AMD Radeon graphics products. It also contains fixes for previous graphic issues such as display turning black or going blank after upgrade installation, random corruption of Microsoft desktop applications, a problem with the “Reset” selection in Radeon Settings Gaming tab, Radeon Wattman overclocking issues, and advanced setup options for Eyefinity configurations.

Destiny 2 Video Card Settings


Bungie confirmed that Destiny 2 will run on Nvidia – GeForce GTX 660 2GB or AMD – Radeon HD 7850 2GB but recommends Nvidia – GeForce GTX 970 or AMD – Radeon R9 390 for reliable performance, improved efficiency, and high stability. However, gamers who really want to experience Destiny 2 in its maximum capacity and immerse themselves with mind-blowing visuals and fluid graphic motion in 4,000 resolution at 60 frames per second must have Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti or GeForce Titan XP or any of the graphic cards from AMD’s Radeon RX 500 or Vega Series.

To help you decide on the best Destiny 2 video card settings, we have gathered different graphic cards and compared their performance based on Destiny 2’s requirements. Of course, these are just predictions. With the beta period closing in, we are just as excited as the rest of the fans and techno geeks to test and prove once and for all which video card setting for Destiny 2 is the best in terms of practicality and performance.

Nvidia Titan XP / Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti + Intel Core i9-7900X / i7-7820X / i7-7800X (60FPS at 4k or 118 FPS at 1080p)

This video card setting for Destiny 2 is predicted to dish out 60FPS at 4k display resolution with the game running at Very High Settings on DirectX 11. You can even reach 118 frames per second when ran at 1080p setting. Nvidia’s new video cards uses dynamic super resolution technology that portrays a game at a higher resolution, captures that quality, and then adapts the monitor’s display resolution using that same quality, allowing you to enjoy the brilliance, contrast, and dynamic rendering of colors and shadows of 4K graphics quality even on a smaller-sized screen. They are also 4k Ultra HD compatible if you plan to play on wide screen. Be warned though, both video cards require a minimum of 600W PSU so if you’re planning to upgrade your Destiny 2 gaming rig, expect your electricity bill to jump up as well. If running a aimbot this will be super fast and quick so becarefull not to be caught.

If you are willing to trade frame rate to shave a few hundred dollars off your processor cost, then the following are some the good options with their predicted frame rate:
Intel Core i7-7740X / i5-7640X (115FPS at 1080p)
Intel Core i7-7700K (112FPS at 1080p)
Intel Core i5-7600K / AMD R7 1800X / R5 1600X / R5 1600 (84FPS at 1080p)
AMD R7 1700X (82FPS at 1080p)
AMD R7 1700 (80FPS at 1080p)


Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Windforce OC + Intel Core i9-7900X / i7-7820X / i7-7800X / i7-7740X / i5-7640X / i7-7700K = 60FPS at 1440p or 93FPS at 1080p)

This Destiny 2 video card settings is meant for gamers who want to experience Destiny 2 on PC without burning a hole in their pockets. This setup allows users to benefit from the game’s unfaltering 60 frames per second although at a lower graphic quality than 4k. But then again, 2k is already a fairly high resolution. Besides, nobody complained when the best people can get is 1080p a year and a half ago. If you are looking for ways to save on processor cost by cutting down on the frame rate, you may want to consider the following:
Intel Core i5-7600K / AMD R7 1800X / R5 1600X / R5 1600 (84FPS at 1080p)
AMD R7 1700X (82FPS at 1080p)
AMD R7 1700 (80FPS at 1080p)


MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G + Intel Core i9-7900X / i7-7820X / i7-7800X / i7-7740X / i5-7640X / i7-7700K / i5-7600K / AMD R7 1800X / R5 1600X / R5 1600 / R7 1700X / R7 1700 (60FPS at 1440p or 77FPS at 1080p)

Similar to the previous video card setting for Destiny 2. We recommend getting the GTX 1080, though. We thought saving $20 by letting go of 20FPS is not justifiable nor logically compelling.


AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 + Intel Core i9-7900X / i7-7820X / i7-7800X / i7-7740X / i5-7640X / i7-7700K / i5-7600K / AMD R7 1800X / R5 1600X / R5 1600 / R7 1700X / R7 1700 (60FPS at 1440p or 73FPS at 1080p)

Similar to the previous video card setting for Destiny 2 but with lower graphic processing capacity and $100 difference. Not a bad deal considering that you will still be able to enjoy Destiny 2 at 60FPS.




Whether you shelled out some cash to upgrade your gaming rig just to get the best video card setting for Destiny 2 or simply took advantage of your existing PC, it would be a waste if you do not make the most of the game’s graphics settings. Destiny 2’s developers spent countless sleepless nights just to make these graphic modifications available, you might as well show some love and indulge in Destiny 2’s visual buffet. Here are some of the graphic settings that you can play with.

Texture Anistrophy – allows you to view textures from different angles and distance with consistent sharpness and clarity. Apparently, this is one of the few graphic options that are not very taxing on your system. Go on and raise the bar, it pays to snap nice screenshots and video captures from time to time. Aside from the feels, they also make you bolder in posting on social media and responding in forums.

Ambient Occlusion – makes shadows darker and more apparent. There are two types of ambient occlusion: the screen space AO, which darkens the pixels in the areas that are not reached by light sources based on the position of objects in the game; and horizon-based AO, the upgraded version of SSAO that gives you a more realistic view of the world. These are some of the elements that give virtual worlds a subtle sense of realism. If your video card setting for Destiny 2 can afford to spare some graphic processing muscles, then try adding some splendid details in the most subtle places. It’s okay to indulge in visual vices especially when you can.

Motion Blur – this is a bit self- explanatory; it determines the density of the blur surrounding your character while moving to emphasize motion.

Anti-Aliasing – smoothens the rough, brick-like edges of curved lines and surfaces by blending the pixels to make them look softer. The higher the setting, the prettier your visuals will be. Check your video card setting for Destiny 2 if you have some spare graphics resources to spare before you decide to max it up. But if you’re using just the enough GP power, then don’t force it. Besides, you’ll probably be too busy gunning down your enemies to notice the jagged lines.

Texture Quality – reflects the resolution of surfaces and objects in-game. The higher the setting, the richer the visuals are (ex. instead of the hazy blur, you see the rough, grainy surface of concrete walls on the screen, indicating higher texture quality setting). The amount

Depth Of Field – mimics a human’s vision where the objects closer to the viewer is always sharper, clearer, and more defined while the ones further away are blurry. Blur density becomes more evident as the distance increases.

Shadow Quality – the same as Texture Quality but applies only on shadows

The good thing about Destiny 2 is that it automatically detects your screen’s resolution so you will be given a head start with the graphic settings. If you’re lazy and easy to please, then you don’t have to do anything anymore. Just proceed with the game. However, if you’re the meticulous type who computes every combination possible to find out the most optimal graphic settings to achieve 60FPS with the most stunning visuals, then, by all means, tweak away.

Bungie said earlier that they will keep on making adjustments to the game so we assume that some things may still change between beta and the official release date, and that could include graphic settings. The recommended video card setting for Destiny 2 may more or less stay the same, though, since it’s not likely that they will overhaul the visual content of the game. If your current gaming rig can still deliver a great performance, we recommend that you sit out of buying a new video card at this time. We heard a new monster video card is set to come out late this year or early next year and it’s set to bump off Nvidia Titan XP from its throne, but that’s another story for another time.
