Dragon’s Dogma 2 was tested on PC. Everything is very bad


Recently, critics were delighted with Dragon’s Dogma 2, Capcom’s new fantasy RPG. If you believe the press, everything about it is great – except for the technical part.

PC Gamer staff tested the ambitious creation of the authors of Devil May Cry on various PCs, and, as it turned out, the optimization of the game as a whole leaves much to be desired. For experiments, journalists used AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT, RX 6600, Intel Arc A770, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti video cards, as well as AMD Ryzen 7 8700G processors (with 32 GB DDR5-6400), AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (16 GB DDR4-3200), AMD Ryzen 9 7900 (32 GB DDR5-6400), Intel Core i7 9700K (32 GB DDR4-3200), Intel Core i7 14700KF (32 GB DDR5-6400). The results are generally disappointing.

As it turns out, the performance of Dragon’s Dogma depends more on the CPU and RAM than on the GPU, but even on very good PCs, fps drops are inevitable (and DLSS and FSR scaling technologies, by the way, do not correct the situation). Everything is so sad that the recommended system requirements should be treated as minimum.

You can’t even play the new game on the Steam Deck – even at low graphics settings, the RPG produces 15 frames per second outside of battles. On average, if you turn on the game with the default picture, the title produces 10. Just for fun, the TouchArcade employee even increased the clock frequency of the video chip to 1600 MHz, which allowed him to achieve 18 frames in one of the scenes.

Let us remind you that Dragon’s Dogma 2 comes out tomorrow, March 22. In addition to PC, the role-playing epic can be purchased on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
