My System Specs

Default CoD:AW isn't playing nice with the GPU

So here goes,

My friend upgraded his GPU (yes that same friend from a few months back about a mini-ITX build) so he now has a Radeon HD R9 280X (it was on sale so why not?) so after plugging it in, uninstalling all the drivers and reinstalling it again just to make sure there's no messing around. He boots up CoD: AW, after around 2 minutes an error pops up saying that Direct3D Stopped responding and so crashed onto the desktop.

At first I thought the GPU might be bad but when he tested all the other games, they're smooth as butter, no crashes or issues with them. (This also includes Battlefield 4 on Ultra settings and The Evil Within) so I'm kind of lost as to why it's doing that. His old GPU while a piece of could run CoD:AW without crashing (at the horrible 24-30 FPS though)

Any suggestions?

Thanks

This seems to be a common issue with this game. After Googling, it looks like the next patch MAY address it.

Thanks Sky, I'm sure he'll love the good news! (His father bought the game for him after all :P)

It's a friggin COD game. I'm not surprised at all, considering on a 290x I can't even get close to maxing settings at 1080p. No crashes at least though.
