    This. As newer drivers are released I think people will be shocked at what the 16 series is capable of. I'd bet money that it will be around 1080 performance within 6 months.

    Has anyone seen any flickering windows, glass patterns or 3d objects (signs/magazines) that looks a lot like Z fighting, theres a few guys claiming they do but no video i've seen has demonstrated it by regular streamers.

    DX11 and 12 use BC formats that have an equivalence to DXTC, if you tried to load DXTC directly you'll have issues :p, and many game dds files are just raw ARGB now.

    Also, compressed textures are unpacked when loaded to the gpu by most resource loader libraries at high settings, very few actually even bother to retain them as a compressed resource unless the settings offer the control for it. What does happen though is that the images are saved with mipmap values then the game selects what level of mip based on the selected quality level, so a single dds covers multiple quality settings instead of having to duplicate the resource for each quality level.


    Lets be frank, none of the studio's live in the real world when it comes to system recommendations,

    Rockstar still suggests 8GB is enough for GTA5, we know how well that pans out.....

    Nah. Vignette isn't something that changes much, nor does it require any processing power, nor does it affect any lighting. Do you know what vignette is? It simply darkens the edges of the screen slightly, that's all.

    I know what it does, but in closed/open beta it actually fixed something when overbright happened. But I did not experience this with current version anymore :)

    Direct graphical comparison of the Division 2's 2018 E3 showcase and the final retail version of PC.
