When you encounter this problem, the error message “Your GPU was not supported. Please check your GPU Driver.” might pop up.
How to Troubleshoot & Fix GPU Not Supported Error on Street Fighter 6 for Windows PC
To help save you from the headache, check out the following tips on how to fix this Street Fighter 6 issue:
Check and Confirm System Requirements for SF6
Before anything else, you have to ensure first that the PC you’re using meets all of the game’s system requirements. To confirm this, head over to the official website of the game and refer to the list of requirements there. You might want to consider upgrading your hardware before you try to play the game if your device doesn’t meet the set minimum requirements.
Download All Recommended Drivers
Radeon RX 5700 XT and GeForce RTX 2070 are the recommended GPU drivers for this new Street Fighter version. Be sure to download these drivers and install them on your device to be sure that they are supported by the game.
Force Windows into Using Supported Street Fighter 6 GPU Card
Yes, you can also try to force Windows to use the games’ supported GPU card. Head over to NVIDIA Control Panel or the AMD Catalyst Control Center if you’re using an AMD GPU.
Choose Manage 3D Settings and head over to the tab for Program Settings. Select Street Fighter 6 from the program list. Click the supported GPU card under the option “Select the preferred graphics processor for this program” and tap Apply.
Give the Game and Steam Administrator Privileges
Several users reported that they were able to play the game properly when they run Steam.exe in administrator mode. To do this, right-click on the .exe file and choose Run as administrator. You can also try to run the .exe file of the game in administrator mode if the first one doesn’t work.
Run Game Launcher as Administrator
Try to run the launcher as a Windows administrator to allow both the game files and launcher program to run seamlessly. You might have a hard time preventing crashes or issues with no launching where access to the User Account Control or UAC is required if you don’t run the client or game as an administrator.
Update the GPU Card Drivers
GPU Not Supported error on Street Fighter 6 might be the result of outdated or corrupted graphic card drivers. Make sure that your drivers are all updated to the latest version to help get rid of the error and ensure the successful launch of the game.
Street Fighter 6 won’t be fun at all if there are error messages that show up on your screen even before you even get the chance to start playing it. The fixes above will help you enjoy an amazing gameplay experience without any glitches.
