Is your PC 4K ready?
Microsoft has revealed the official PC specs for Gears of War 4 at Gamescom 2016. On release you’ll be able to play in glorious 4K if you own a AMD Radeon Fury X, NVIDIA Geforce 980 Ti or GTX 1080 paired with an i7 4790 or AMD FX 9590.
For 1080p gaming a minimum of a R7 260X or GTX 750 Ti will be sufficient but a R9 290X or GTX 970 is recommended. AMD builds will be fine as long as you’ve got a FX 6300 or FX 8350. Intel i5 3470 and i5 4690 are also acceptable CPU’s for gaming at 1080p or even 1440p. Paired with new AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards like the RX 480 and GTX 1060 is encouraged though.
Most importantly though you will need to download the new Windows 10 Anniversary Update. You’ll need quite a beast of a PC to power Gears of War 4 at 4K but if your having doubts about upgrading, watch the latest 4K footage above.
