Gears of War 4 PC Performance Review
Published: 13th October 2016 | Source: OC3D | Price: |
Moving up to 1440p Gears of War 4 requires some very expensive hardware to play at a stable 60FPS at Ultra settings, requiring a GTX 1070 or above to maintain a stable 60+FPS under most situations.
With a few lowered settings all of the GPUs tested can achieve framerates above 60, but to play the game in its full glory you will need a huge amount of GPU power. Gears of War is a beautiful game and has the hardware requirements to match, though thankfully the game can scale to lower end hardware with ease thanks to the sheer amount of graphical options available.
Gears of War 4 has a higher "insane" set of graphical options, though this is where the graphical improvement is simply not worth the performance loss, so users should avoid these settings until AMD and Nvidia release more powerful hardware.
