The New Gears Game Won’t Require A GPU Upgrade
Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN were able to get a peek at the multiplayer tech test of Gears Of War 5 and tested a GTX 1060 and GTX 970 to get a feel as to what you will need to squash giant bugs. The GTX 1060 pushed frames above 80 with the maximum graphics settings at 1080p, but needed to be dropped down to high if you play at 1440p. GTX 970 owners should definitely expect to play at 1080p on High, though it was playable at Ultra if you are able to stand a game that that dips below 60fps.
Pop over to see the official word on Minimum, Recommended and Ideal configurations and a bit more details on performance on older mid-range cards.
I played a chunk of it yesterday and saw lots of lovely high frame rates from both my 6GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 970 GPUs, showing you don’t need to shell out for a shiny new graphics card (*cough*Control*cough*) just to get a stable 60fps.
