Watch Dogs: Legion Will Require RTX 3080 for 4K Resolution

Nvidia has updated enthusiasts regarding the use of the latest RTX 3000 graphic card series in association with the upcoming Watch Dog: Legion.

The America-based multinational technology company has disclosed that in order to play as a hacker at 4K resolution, an RTX 3080 or RTX 2080ti is a must.

Furthermore, if your PC is equipped with RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 then even better! You’ll be able to explore the world of Legion at 4K Ultra accompanied by superb ray tracing. Thus hacking your way to winning in the game will seem highly realistic and beautiful.

If there is one thing that is to be noted here, it is probably the fact that back when RTX 3070 was being launched, we were told that it will offer better performance than 2080ti. But with Watch Dogs: Legion, this isn’t so.

While the RTX 2080ti will do an acceptable job is good for playing the game at 4K ultra without ray tracing, an RTX 3070 will struggle.
