We tested the public Steam release version of Gears 5 Ultimate Edition (not a press pre-release). We also installed the latest drivers from AMD, which have support for the game. For NVIDIA GeForce we used 431.68 as recommended by NVIDIA—their GameReady Driver will be released on Monday Sep 10th.
Graphics Memory Usage
Using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which has 11 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting with the Ultra texture pack enabled.
While VRAM usage is demanding at lower resolutions, where it exceeds the 3–4 GB found on some of the cards that are typical for 900p and 1080p, memory requirements at 1440p and 4K are modest—all modern graphics cards that can drive these resolutions have 8 GB of VRAM or more, so our measured 5-6 GB should be no problem at all.
