7 Best Graphics Card For Unreal Engine 5 in 2022

In the world of technology and gaming especially, developing the game and different new technologies is something of a top priority. Unreal Engine 5 is the newest version of Unreal Engine which is becoming a staple of game and virtual production development (including technology for other industries like digital twins). Since there is always new stuff coming out and some of this new stuff is actually pretty amazing and of course, has its demands as graphic card for Unreal Engine 5. In blog today, we will explore in detail 7 Best Graphics Card For Unreal Engine 5 in 2022 with sharing of Ahmad Jahangheer –  a tech journalist and gaming hardware enthusiast.



Starting off with the RTX beast, the most important feature that Unreal Engine utilizes is the graphics memory of a GPU. So, this 24 GB RTX 3090 is the ultimate graphics card when it comes to ray tracing AI visualization. And the multiple monitor’s options is a perfect balance for productivity in game development and actual gaming experience. As these cards are not very specific for development engines and other stuff, but since the unreal engine mostly uses the GPU for visual memory, it is a perfect choice for someone looking for balanced gaming hours and working hours as well.

The only edge this RTX beast will have over all the other competitors is the no. of CUDA cores on the machine. So its always a good thing.


  • Graphics Memory: 24GB
  • CUDA Cores: 10496
  • Base Clock: 1395 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1695 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 350 W



The Quadro GV100 is the premium workstation and productivity GPU you can find on the internet right now. Designed purely for development purposes and producing content, the performance of the GPU is of the ultimate level. The 24 GB of graphics memory provides the unreal engine the speed and performance it needs for every purpose.

Not only is the Quadro series a perfect choice for Unreal Engine 5, but other game engines also need as much as graphics ability out there. Some of the best GPU for unity are also some top-of-the-line Quadro graphic cards. Some can say that the list of these graphics cards can go hand in hand with most of the game development engines. And that is true because the basic functionalities and requirements are somewhat similar and need similar graphical and processing prowess. So, it can be said that the best graphics card for Unreal Engine 5 in 2022 is also some of the best GPU for Unity too.


  • Graphics Memory: 32GB
  • CUDA Cores: 5120
  • Base Clock: 1132 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1627 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 250 W



Another top of the list GPU, and it may be on the extreme top, for rendering and game development is also a Quadro namely Quadro RTX 8000. This supreme graphics card can be said as the best graphics card for Unreal Engine in 2022 for one major reason. And that is its 48 GB graphics memory.

Another myth out there is that Quadro GPUs do not go well with gaming. While this is not only false, we can surely say that Quadro GPUs are sort of major competitors to gaming-specific GPUs. But since these are not gaming specific GPU, there are always some cons to it in some certain things and tweaks.


  • Graphics Memory: 48GB
  • CUDA Cores: 4608
  • Base Clock: 1395 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1770 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 260 W



Quadro P6000 is an enthusiast-class professional graphics card which in simpler terms matches the RTX 2080 out there. But being a professional graphics card has some benefits such as great support and extremely good software-hardware coordination. Equipped with some of the best features required for even heavy rendering projects as well.

The performance of all the Quadro GPUs is certified for research, development and game engines. Quadro are considered some of the best graphic card for game development and VFX artists. Since large graphics memory is required for all these productivity tasks, Quadro cards do provide this and perform extremely well even in very long hours.


  • Graphics Memory: 24GB
  • CUDA Cores: 3840
  • Base Clock: 1506 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1645 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 250 W



Somewhat similar but inferior to the Quadro RTX 8000 is the Quadro RTX 4000. Still a great GPU and amazing performance. The only main thing is that it is actually the world’s first ray-tracing graphic card in the world. So, in a sense it can be called a little dated in today’s world. But regarding the Unreal Engine, it is still a very good graphic card because as already mentioned, utilizes the GPU only for visual purposes.

The low power consumption can be regarded as an advantage since developmental projects and renders surely take a lot of time.

Can be considered a budget card in the sense that it is older than many better options. But in the end it all depends upon the requirements and needs of the project and individual.


  • Graphics Memory: 8GB
  • CUDA Cores: 2304
  • Base Clock: 1005 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1545 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 160 W



Now coming to some of the mid-level GPUs for game development and rendering tasks. This RTX 2080 TI is not a very mid-level GPU as per generally, but since we have mentioned some of the best graphics card for Unreal Engine 5 in 2022, the RTX 2080 TI does become an inferior card relatively.

But not the least, the graphic card becomes a perfect balance for a certain person who needs gaming and content development tasks. The RTX 2080 Ti is in itself a great GPU and is quite hard to come by because of its price to performance ratio.


  • Graphics Memory: 11GB
  • CUDA Cores: 4352
  • Base Clock: 1350 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1545 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 250 W



Last but not the least, the Titan RTX, is not only considered the top-notch when it comes to all the tasks other than gaming. The most important usage of the Titan is actually in the field of research and development. Its deep learning features, ability to withhold and navigate through deep neural networks and the absolute performance easily crowns this as the true king when it comes to the graphics processing technology.

All this comes with hefty prices and an extremely limited number of units makes it absolutely difficult to come by a unit.


  • Graphics Memory: 24GB
  • CUDA Cores: 4608
  • Base Clock: 1350 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1770 MHz
  • Power Consumption: 280 W

Final thought

Concluding the list, we can say that all the graphics cards listed here are some of the top-notch and best graphics cards for unreal engine 5 in 2022 as close we could get. However, the cost to invest in the above graphics cards is extremely expensive for individuals or businesses with occasional needs. In addition, the cost of management and maintenance is also a huge number when investing in a machine system. Therefore, instead of buying, you can rent at a much cheaper cost and just focus on your creative work. iRender is the solution to your cost problem. Find out more about our solution below.

Like most software developers, Unreal maintains a list of system requirements for Unreal Engine that can be used to help ensure the hardware in your system meets their minimum requirements. However, most "system requirements" lists tend to cover only the very basics of what hardware is needed to run the software, not what hardware will actually give the best performance. In addition, these lists are often outdated, list old hardware revisions, or simply contain sub-optimal hardware. Because of how inconsistent those lists can be, we have spent time doing a detailed research to determine what hardware runs Unreal Engine the best and why iRender will be a perfect choice for Unreal Engine users to execute your projects when your own pc configuration is not “powerful” enough.
