<em>Gears 5<\/em> Update; update two was released early this month by The Coalition and also added are heightened visuals using AMD's FidelityFX tech. Among many of its updates, it also has improvements to the Flashbangs and Boomshot effects.\r\n\r\nAlthough not stated in the release notes, this recent update adds a new setting for PC users to increase the game's visuals using AMD's FidelityFX tech. Also, layers with this new option would experience stellar and crisp graphics on setups with either an NVIDIA GeForce GPU or AMD Radeon.\r\n\r\nAMD's FidelityFX technology happens to be an open-source dev-kit, employed by developers in games to ship awesome, sharp visuals. It also combines the Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) algorithm to increase the visuals with less performance. It uses the CAS algorithm and a third-party Luma Preserving Mapping.\r\n\r\n[embed] https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=h35_KOgslkM [\/embed]\r\n\r\nFrom the desk of the Red Team, FidelityFX programmatically subsides 'multiple effects' into a few shaders passes to reduce the load. This, in effect, gives ample space for the graphics card to experience sharper visuals at remotely no performance loss.\r\n\r\n<strong>Let\u2019s quickly run through the <em>Gears 5<\/em> Update 2 for PC\/Xbox One Release Notes:<\/strong>\r\n\u2022 Newly improved consistent Boomshot with changes to the secondary effects.\r\n\u2022 Flashbangs will not affect players through the cover.\r\n\u2022 Now, players can re-enable weapon drops\r\n\u2022 The bug that causes players to be perma-flashed in a match has it fix\r\n\u2022 Fixed another bug that causes lose Enemies to sometimes unaffected by Flashes\r\n\u2022 Fixed a bug that causes the Weapon\u2019s Locker to eat weapons in diverse circumstances\r\n\u2022 Players can shoot through walls, with the newly added check, ignoring muzzle block.\r\n\u2022 The long-term issue of the Gnasher\u2019s bullet magnetism is fixed\r\n\u2022 Now, the map goes to default, if no users vote for it in Quickplay.
