Tekken 8 is Struggling With Nvidia GPUs

Nvidia GPU-powered Tekken 8 players are experiencing crashes in the game. It looks like players are having the problem whether they have Tekken 8 mods or not.

With a high concurrent player count on Steam at launch, Tekken 8 got off to a great start on PC. When the title revealed changes to its monetization system, much of the positive sentiment toward the game turned sour.

While some players are still angry about the battle pass, others who were previously enjoying the game are now having trouble with it.

In a new update for its 552.44 Nvidia driver, Nvidia GeForce talks about problems that users might run into. It says in this version update that PCs with Nvidia GTX 10-series GPUs are having trouble with Tekken 8.

Not surprisingly, Nvidia hasn’t given any advice on how to possibly avoid the crashes, and they haven’t said when the problem will be fixed.

The problem should hopefully be fixed with the launch of the next driver because Nvidia GPU drivers come out pretty frequently.

Most PC gamers know that the Nvidia GTX 10-series of cards is pretty old now. Some people might not be surprised that the hardware is experiencing problems given that they launched back in 2016.

According to the developer, users with Nvidia GTX 10-series cards shouldn’t be experiencing this issue because Tekken 8’s minimum system requirements call for an Nvidia GTX 1050TI or better.

Nvidia GTX 10-Series GPUs Still Frequently Used

Although they’ve been out for almost ten years, many PC gamers are still using their 10-series GTX cards. But among PC gaming fans, the Nvidia GTX 1080 and 1080TI are still very popular.

When their 10-series cards still performed admirably, some believed it was better to keep using GTX cards rather than trying to update to a newer GPU.

Also, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the more expensive Nvidia GTX 10-series GPUs remained a popular choice for a longer period of time.

Due to issues with limited supplies, the Nvidia RTX 30-series launched in the middle of 2020, but it was very hard to get one at MSRP.

Some gamers opted to buy an older GTX 10-series card instead of the Nvidia RTX 20- and Nvidia RTX 30-series cards that were being scalped, or they simply stuck with the card they still had.
