Hey all, I just upgraded my motherboard's bios to support my new 5800x and now my Asrock x470 has the resizable bar setting in the bios. Now before I flash my GPU's bios and enable resize bar in my motherboard's bios does GW2 have any issues with it enabled?  I'm reading some random posts online that DX9 games may have issues with it enabled, crashing, games not starting etc.

 

Thanks.

I have the same GPU as yourself  RTX 3070, what motherboard do you have?  It might need a bios update to support it.  It should work with Windows 7 as well. Your harddrive needs to be GPT formated if it's not it's really easy to go from MBR to GPT that's what I did and changed CSM to disabled in order for it to boot.

I have a Dell Precision 5820 workstation with a Dell 0X8DXD motherboard (Intel C422 chipset) and a Xeon W-2145 processor.

Can't speak for Nvidia, but AMDs implementation (they call it SAM) does not have any issues with GW2. SAM on AMD hardware is enabled in every game once you enable it in the BIOS.

 

Nvidia says they have a whitelist, which means it is disabled by default and only enabled in specific games that have been tested by Nvidia.

I have a gigabyte 3070 gaming oc with resizeable bar enabled, paired with a x570 aorus elite motherboard and a 3700x processor . I have no issues whatsoever, so I say go for it.

Yeah I'm thinking about it 😃I have the same card as you from EVGA, and x470 taichi, with a 5800x. I was reading it only gets enabled for games that support in the nvidia control panel and ignores games that do not support it. You can also toggle that on and off in unsupported games but I will not 😀
