Graphics Cards Used
You can't run Gears 5 at 8K with any graphics card that has 8GB of VRAM, but throws out virtually everything apart from the AMD's only card capable in running Gears 5 at 8K being the Radeon VII.
NVIDIA has a couple of options with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, TITAN Xp, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, and TITAN RTX. I've tested all of these graphics cards at 8K for a total of 5 cards, with some surprising results.
The best thing about the TITAN RTX is that it can be used in any VRAM starved situation, with it quickly becoming my go-to graphics card when I'm testing games at 8K. Seeing the VRAM clock over 16GB in some instances is pretty insane, but 8K isn't doing that here in Gears 5. You simply can't load the game up with a graphics card that only has 8GB of VRAM.
