So imma get a new graphics card, at the moment I’m using a AMD radeon R9 200 series which the beta worked fine on and never crashed but once the game officially released… Crashes just keep happening half way through a game.
So I need help and advice on which graphics card to get so that the game will never crash… And I can play the game I paid for…
I feel your pain … I had GOW 4 not work for months on my PC due to driver / hardware issues
If it helps I run GOW 5 on the Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Strix OC Gaming 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card which is a two year old card now, so should not be silly money now, I do turn Nvidia game bar off other wise I do get occasional crashes
Blocks or desktop outputs are normal in this game, but for many references I know that currently AMD drivers are very bad so if you want to move to Nvidia, I suggest the 1080Ti, but depends on the rest of your PC to get the most benefit.
I had a 1070 and used to crash before a match could even start in Gears 4 (every time). I was crashing right up until the end even when other people didn’t have problems anymore. Once they came out with new drivers for Gears 5, I didn’t crash anymore on 4 or 5.
Now I’ve upgraded to a 1080 and I still don’t crash on 4 or 5. So in my experience, a 1070 or 1080 should work.
I used to get constant crashes on gears 4 and then some on 5 when I was using a gtx 970. I found turning off game bar fixed 90% of crashes. Game lock ups without automatic game closure were caused by overclocking - it was within the “safe” preset on the Asus GPU tweak software. Turned this off and had no lockups.
I then got an AMD RX 5700, turned game bar back on and got crashes within about 15 minutes. Turned game bar off and not had a single crash since in hours of gameplay.
I can only speak for myself, but I had persistent crashing issues on Gears of War 4 for 2 years with the 980M GPU. I eventually upgraded to an RTX 2080 and the crashing was completely gone, and I’ve had really good performances in Gears 5 as well (occasionally the FPS might drop with driver updates).
TL:DR Newer GPU’s tend to perform well for Gears 5, especially Nvidia
