Blog Post created by annie.lee Employee on Nov 7, 2019

When The Coalition’s Gears 5 was released back on September 10, it launched to roaring reception and received several callouts to its superb technical elements. For the PC version, AMD worked with The Coalition and Xbox to optimize Gears 5 for AMD hardware, adding several PC optimizations to make it a stellar experience:

 

 

Check out how you can get ~60 FPS* on AMD hardware using Gears 5’s highest settings and take advantage of the optimizations:

 

*Results may vary

 

Optimized with AMD FidelityFX

 

Gears 5’s latest update includes implementation of AMD’s key current-generation feature: AMD FidelityFX.

 

AMD FidelityFX is our open-source image quality toolkit, used by developers in games to deliver sharp, fantastic visuals. It combines the Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) algorithm with Luma Preserving Mapping (LPM), automatically collapsing multiple effects into fewer shader passes to reduce overhead. This, in return, frees up your graphics card to experience sharper visuals at virtually no performance loss.

 

Gears 5 looked gorgeous before, but AMD FidelityFX adds a touch of subtlety that will add to an overall fantastic experience.

 

 

Get Gears 5 with the AMD Bundle

 

With AMD FidelityFX, now is the perfect time to jump into Gears 5 if you haven’t yet.

 

Get Gears 5 with the Xbox Game Pass for PC in our current Raise the Game bundle with the purchase of a select Radeon graphics card* or Equipped to Win bundle with the purchase of a select Ryzen graphics card*.
