Dishonored 2 PC Benchmarks Reveal Trouble For GPUs Not High End
The original game was a perfect port to PC and there were no FPS drops or issues when it came to gameplay. Dishonored 2 PC benchmarks tell another story though.

Now that you know about the hardware that is needed to run the game let me tell you that these are not clear indications that the game will run properly on your system. Dishonored 2 PC benchmarks reveal that if you have the recommended hardware or higher then you are well and good but if your hardware if between the minimum and recommended then you can have issues in the game.
The irritating thing is that lowering the setting will not make the experience any better as you will experience significant drops in FPS when you move from indoors to outdoors and even then the FPS is inconsistent. Turn one way and you might get 60 FPS, turn the other way and you might see the FPS drop to 40.
Dishonored 2 PC benchmarks reveal that if you have a GPU that is anything short of high end then you will not be getting the optimal experience. Dishonored 2 is an amazing game and we want the proper gaming experience. Still, we still have another day and we might see a fix soon. Needless to say, there should be a patch that will enable people will other GPUs to be able to run the game properly. Not everyone has high-end GPUs.
It is possible that there will be drivers coming up that will boost performance in Dishonored 2, there could also be a patch in the future that will do this. You can find more benchmarks here.
