Gears of War: Ultimate Edition PC Performance Review

1080p Testing with the Nvidia GTX 980Ti + AMD R9 Fury X

 

Moving up to the R9 Fury X and the GTX 980Ti we can see that we are almost constantly at the framerate cap of 60Hz at 1080p, with the exception of the R9 Fury X at High settings. 

Considering the fact that the R9 380, a GPU with less than 50% of the power of the R9 Fury X was able to achieve an average framerate of 40.86FPS the performance of AMD's Fury X is simply appalling, showing the the developers have clearly not finished optimizing the game for AMD yet, a fact that is backed up by their statement saying that the game will require a patch to address AMD's performance issues, not new drivers.

With the game never having an announced release date I have no idea why Microsoft did not delay this game, nobody would have noticed and the game could have been released at a later date with the AMD performance patch on day 1, instead AMD users have to contend with both graphical issues and performance problems. This game is not something that we would call an Ultimate Edition and Certainly not something that we would call "Remastered".

The ambient occlusion is HBAO+ but not labeled. No wonder amd takes a hit in this benchmark. Nvidia now hiding their awful tech inside games without telling people in the graphics menu. On top of that physx is forced on, you can't disable it which again takes a hit on amd gpus.

Nvidia are going the extra mile to make amd owners suffer, I guess they weren't happy with amd helping Stardock make Nvidia look weak in the dx12 benchmarks of ashes of the singularity.Quote

it also includes PhysX too, but that aint even written anywhere unless you read the ini config files inside a restricted windows store folder...

@krito sensei, you must write about both HBAO+ (nvidia blog) and PhysX (see ini files)Quote
