I’m coming back to try Gears 4 after acquiring one of the new RTX cards. A long time ago, this issue centered around the Pascal hardware (10-series) exclusively. I want to at least disprove that the problem is more widespread, but maybe it’s just something in the way the Pascal chips were designed and there’s no way to driver or patch around it. I tried to see if someone had posted something like this already but I possibly didn’t look back far enough.
My expectations are low, having only a rarified month or so of such an awesome experience with the 1080Ti and then watching it never work again…if it wasn’t hardware specific then I expect the game to crash like it has been.
I’m also taking a page off the recent frustrations people have experienced with Forza Horizon 4…no GeForce Experience, no overclocking software (some people were having crashes due to running overclocks on their GPU).
Microsoft has claimed that the issues have “Nothing to do with UWP”. Uh huh. Then why do all your UWP games have so many problems? Can’t possibly be the one thing they all have in common. In the Windows 10 world, that makes far too much sense. That would be like an OS update that deletes personal files…I mean there’s just no way that could…oh wait.
We shall see…right now I have to wait to suck down 132GB of Gears.
