Watch Dogs 2 Performance Guide

Watch Dogs 2 is a very CPU intensive game, so you may find your CPU actually bottle necking your graphics card. In addition Watch Dogs 2 is not the most best PC port. Here are some tips for improving performance.

  • How can you tell if your CPU is causing a bottleneck? Press 'Ctrl + Shift + ESC', then look at the CPU usage over time after playing Watch Dogs 2. If this is hitting a high percentage but your GPU isn't, then you have a bottleneck.
  • Despite the recommended GPU from Ubisoft being a GTX 780, NVIDIA stated that they recommend a GTX 1060 to have the best experience playing the game.
  • The 'Extra Detail' setting is the most demanding in the game, which is not enabled by default in any of the graphics preset. At its highest setting, NVIDIA themselves measured a 24% drop in FPS. Try and keep away from this setting unless your PC can handle it.
  • The 'Geometry' setting can also see performance gains when lowered, especially if you're trying to reduce a CPU bottleneck.
  • Disable background applications such as Game DVR and GeForce Experience, or any other CPU intense applications.
