Those who have played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Windows 10 within the last year have been greeted with very poor performance. These performance issues are caused by low GPU utilization on the video card and these issues were not present until about the last year or so going by other threads I’ve found on the topic.
When I discovered these issues myself a few weeks ago I went on a troubleshooting and testing spree to find a fix. I tried everything I knew to try and researched online for potential fixes and other things to try. Nothing worked. I reached out to Nvidia to report the issue and see if it’s a driver issue on their end but no fix ever came of it and they determined it’s most likely a game issue. I then got a report from a user on another forum who tested the game on an AMD video card and got the same results as me and many others. This proves without a doubt the issue is with the game itself and not a driver issue with Nvidia or AMD.
I’m new to this forum and don’t know if any of the developers interact with people here but if so, my question to them is: Will these performance issues with Gears: Ultimate Edition on Windows 10 ever be fixed? I’d really love to play the first Gears again at 4K with high performance and this would be possible on my PC if the GPU utilization on the game was where it should be.
