You know what gamers look for in their graphics cards? Great performance, low heat, low noise, and an affordable price which fits the value of the card.
You know what else gamers look for in their graphics cards? The ability to run the most popular games without crashing constantly due to poor drivers. Nvidia may be top dog when it comes to GPUs, however quality comes with a price, and the more affordable pricing of AMD cards have made the arguably inferior manufacturer equally popular among the hardcore gamer crowd. However, this time around it wasn't the hardware causing the issues.
GTA V fans with AMD cards have been reporting for quite a while now that the game started crashing with alarming frequency since the latest driver update. AMD has reached out to the community regarding the matter, stating that they have compiled a list of the 10 most urgent fixes, with the crashes that have been plaguing GTA V and Diablo 3 being at the top.
Placing this issue at the top of the hit list is understandable, considering that GTA V and Diablo 3 are among the most popular games still being played. GTA V alone sees a weekly traffic of over 8 million players, which makes it the single most popular online AAA video game, surpassing even the weekly players of most popular MMOs, and outperforming the most popular modern-military shooter franchise.
GTA V on PC has been known to be quite the hardware-hog when pushed to max settings, however it is undoubtedly worth it. GTA V has been praised as the first truly next-gen game - even though it came out in the previous generation. Don't worry though - the game is well optimized, and on medium to low settings, any rig will run this open-world masterpiece.
Do we have any AMD gamers who had issues with GTA V before?
