I'm still not quite over EA's suicidal decision to push out Titanfall 2 just a week after Battlefield 1. Suffice to say it feels as if it's arriving with a smaller splash, yet initial reviews indicate this may actually be the better game for both single-player and competitive fans. Ultimately it's the slick, fast-paced online arena antics that are the real draw though, and a rock solid 60 frames per second is vital for competitive play. We've benchmarked Titanfall 2 on the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6GB to see just how well Respawn's shooter runs.

Titanfall 2 Low vs Ultra

(Slide your cursor over to reveal)

 

Now the first image in particular I know is quite shocking. The difference between Low and Ultra is astronomical. If your particular hardware is looking like it may struggle to run Titanfall 2 at higher settings then don't fret too much. Scenes like this are an anomaly, and for the most part you're going to be spending your time leaping and running about too fast to notice a few low resolution textures crop up.

The other two sliders give you a much better idea of how Titanfall 2 looks at Low. It's still noticeably worse looking, but in these larger scenes it's much easier to overlook its graphical flaws. That said, Titanfall 2 isn't a particularly demanding game as you'll see below, so I'd imagine a lot of people going to be playing with a mixture of High and Ultra graphics settings.

For our benchmarks we put Titanfall 2 to the test against the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G, a pretty modern graphics cards which Nvidia puts right in the mid-range of its current GTX 10 series. That doesn't mean it's a slouch in the performance stakes though; the GTX 1060 bests the 970 by some distance. It’s backed up by 16GB DDR4 memory and an Intel Core i7-5820K CPU.

Titanfall 2 MSI GTX 1060 6GB Average Frame Rates

Resolution 720p 900p 1080p
Low 144 144 143
High 142 130 121
Ultra 125 109 86

Visually Titanfall 2 is very nice looking if not spectacular. Respawn has evident worked wonders behind the scenes to ensure fantastic performance however. And, like DICE before them, Respawn can have your graphics hardware punching above its weight.

It's seldom I ever see the GeForce GTX 1060 reach the cap of my monitor's refresh rate, let alone in a AAA title. Playing Titanfall 2 on Low with a GeForce GTX 1060 and you are literally never going to see a dropped frame. 

Things take a minor dip at High but nothing noticeable, while Ultra still delivers and incredibly smooth experience which never, ever dips below 60. In fact, the only time we see an average below 100 fps is when Titanfall 2 is absolutely maxed out at 1080p resolution. While DSR (dynamic super resolution) is providing to be a little fiddly to enable in Titanfall 2, I suspect MSI's GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G is going to be more than capable of playing Respawn's online shooter at 1440p.

One last thing and that is to point out that the frame rates don't really differ at all between the single-player campaign and the online experience, so these frame rates cover both.

In 3gb version you will get around 3-4% lower frames. i.e in ultra you will get around 80-83 with 1080p, so as your monitor resolution is less you can get better.

So if it is 86 fps on 1080p i guess it will be like 75 fps for the GTX 1050 Ti then.

Nope, GTX 1050 Ti has the performance of a OC GTX 960.
