We're finally waking up from a groggy start to the new year with Ubisoft revealing the PC system requirements for The Division 2, probably the biggest release of Q1 2019. The Division 2 is set to offer more of the same addictive co-op loot shooting, this time with all of the valuable lessons learned from the original's post-launch successes and failures. TD2 is out on March 15th and here are the PC system specs requirement for The Division 2.

The Division Minimum System Requirements - 1080p @ 30fps

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 4-Core 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-6350 6-Core 3.9 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 670 or Radeon R9 270
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA Available Hard Drive Space

The Division Recommended System Requirements - 1080p @ 60fps

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 4-Core 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA Available Hard Drive Space

The Division 1440p System Requirements - 1440p @ 60fps

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0 GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8-Core 3.7 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 8 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA Available Hard Drive Space

The Division Ultra System Requirements - 4K @ 60fps

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i9-7900X 10-Core 3.3 GHz or AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 8-Core 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 11 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or AMD Radeon VII
  • DX: DirectX 12
  • HDD: TBA Available Hard Drive Space

This is a comprehensive set of specs for The Division 2 that Ubisoft has provided and we love comprehensive specs. Each of the four requirements settings details a specific resolution and frame rate it's targeting, providing a nice firm idea of where you can expect performance to be on your system.

Fortunately for those without ultra high-end systems, The Division 2's system requirements are only a moderate increase over 2016's The Division. The minimum requirements for The Division 2 are nice and light, demanding a 2GB video card paired with a quad-core processor from the last six or seven years. Unfortunately, the minimum spec Radeon R9 270 or GeForce GTX 670 may spell trouble for those using a GTX 750 Ti, GTX 950, R7 360 and the like. A Radeon RX 550 should just about squeak into these minimum specs and achieve 30fps on 1080p at Low. If you are struggling for performance in The Division 2 then 720p is always an option.

The most popular performance target for The Division 2 will be 1080p at 60 frames per second, and anyone with a spec meeting the recommended requirements should be just fine. Higher-clocked CPUs are needed for the jump from 30 to 60 fps, paired with a mid-range graphics card from the previous gen.

The rest of the system specs are a little more niche, offering 1440p and 4K options in TD2 for those who have higher resolution monitors. You'll need an appropriate 70-80% bump in hardware performance to push 1440p in The Division 2, as well as doubling the required RAM from 8GB to 16GB. Those with a 1440p monitor probably have decent, capable systems though, and the GTX 1070 and Vega 56 are popular at this particular resolution.

For those who want the best of the best, we've also got the 4K 60FPS system requirements for Division 2. Basically, you need a $2500 system to achieve this so you'll need deep pockets. Top-end 8+ core CPUs are allegedly required, paired with the very best graphics cards Nvidia and AMD have to offer. For Nvidia, this means the $1200 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, while for AMD, the newly announced Radeon VII should do the trick. Radeon VII performance is on par with an RTX 2080 so it'll be interesting to see how this shakes out.

As always, you can check out how well your PC can run The Division 2 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to The Division 2 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a The Division 2 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

Cant take these requirements seriously when they up the cpu requirements based on the resolution it doesn't use any more cpu power if you use a higher resolution only gpu power wtf.

It's not you're right but if you have a trash cpu with a high end card it will matter, and considering a gpu is very reliant on 4k resolutions a cpu is just as important idc what anyone says, especially if ur looking to get 144hz+.

@Bluej511
Bro, resolution does NOT affect CPU performance, doesn't matter what you believe or want to be. :D
There might be the rare exception, but I doubt that someone can name one, or if someone can, please do, I'd like to research it, but please do give facts, not just a random link with graphs...

if your CPU bottlenecks, you will just have the same FPS at higher resolution until the GPU becomes the bottleneck...
Though higher resolutions can consume more RAM in Some games which when the VRAM is full and they need to store their visual data somewhere they store it in the RAM.

If your CPU bottlenecks your GPU than good luck with ever playing the game in 4K, even if you have the best possible GPU currently available.

If your cpu bottlenecks your gpu at 4k, playing it at 1080p will not make it run any better.


If your cpu bottlenecks at 1080p, moving up in resolution is actually better.

Well i played the closed test alpha and there requirements make me cringe. P.S. I love how people think 8+gb of VRAM is too much, guess what, Rise of the Tomb Raider on my V64 uses all 8gb of VRAM @ 2560x1080.

Used <> needed
And vram is taken up a lot by textures, which is not particularly high quality in the division. No where close to games like ROTTR

Well again, you have not played the Div 2, i have and can say the game looks AMAZING. There are far more things on screen then ROTTR or STTR. I played it maxed out and it look fantastic. I also played the first one and if they keep the graphics the way they are now the game is very demanding and looks incredible.

I did play the alpha.
Instead of arguing, let me ask you this. Do you think 1070sli (8gb vram, and about as powerful as a 2080ti) can run this game at 4k?

Well if u played the test alpha of Division 2 then you'd know its a good looking good. If the game takes advantage of sli then it should be able to run it at 4k np with 2 1070s. Might not get 60fps stable unless you turn down settings but should. Like i said, i ran it maxed out and used almost all my VRAM and i wasnt even in 4k.

Well there you go. You dont need the extra 3gb of vram to jump from 1440p to 4k. You just need the horsepower.
In the same note, I highly doubt you need an extra 4gb vram to make the jump from 1080p to 1440p. I would have bought the high vram reqts for 1440p/4k IF the 1080p vram reqt was not a mere 4gb. Like I said, textures is what eats up vram. And textures use up the same vram regardless of re

Um actually VRAM also goes up with resolution, in RTTR its only 1gb. Don't forget that if they tell you 8gb for 4k at 60fps and it's not enough then you're going to run into issues. Simple as that.

In my case STTR only uses 5-6GB at 1920x1080 max with 2x AA.

I'm not being a fanboy, I'm being a consumer, and that just doesn't suit me. Yes, it's a great step for developers, but Epic Store leaves a hell of a lot to be desired by us, the consumers.

No proper review systems, no forums, no way whatsoever for the buying community to converse, criticize or send feedback of any kind to the developers is a piss poor decision by Epic, and I will not stand for being silenced.

Say what you want about Steam, but they do have a proper infrastructure for the consumers to ask questions, report bugs or air out their grievances with the developers if there's a need for it.

Until they have those, I'd say basic and necessary systems, Epic Store is absolutely worthless to me.
Prices are still the same for me even though they have lower margins, but I suffer the consequences of no feedback system of any kind.

While I agree with much of what you say, lower margins were never intended to benefit the consumer. These products already have a market price that people are willing to pay, that margin is designed for devs/pubs (not that Ubisoft needs it in particular).

I know. I think it's a good, positive step overall in this industry, but still nothing really changes for us consumers. And going with Epic now only negatively affects us.
