  • How come Recommended settings with RT have the Nvidia 2070 for both 4K/45 and 4K/60 fps? Error?
  • Seems to be an error on Capcom's part, will reach out and ask, presume they mean 2080 for higher-end performance.
  • Thanks for the reply!
  • If you PC can run like a PS5 then you're good, that's what Sony seems to be enforcing with their deal. So anything bettet than that is wasted because "technological parity" is enforced.
    You know how these Capcom guys are, they love their exclusivity deals.
    Personally I pass and due to all these, I will think twice before giving money to Capcom in the future.
  • I'm a big fan of PC gaming. My gaming laptop is getting too old to play the latest games. My budget won't allow me to afford a new one. It's a good thing I have a Series X.
