Yesterday the news was released that Gears 5 on Xbox One series X would have 50% more particles and look better than Ultra on PC, so it’s not surprising that many of us see this performance degradation, and I wouldn’t be surprised if later on we even see a graphics downgrade on this game.
I honestly expected that this PC-Xbox " friend" to fight Sony was going to be conditioned.
There’s no way. TC can barely get the netcode to work, but now they are deliberately sabotaging performance on PC? I don’t think so. The simplest explanation is usually correct, and the simplest one in this case is that TC just screwed the pooch (yet again).
Nah. I’ve been having frame drops before operation 4. It’s a mixture of my CPU being too old and the newer nvidia drivers not working well with the game. I know when I used a much older driver the game was completely fine and smooth - but after a certain newer nvidia driver the frame timing is unstable and pretty sure there’s a memory leak as well in the game
Because the longer the game runs, the worse the frametiming gets/more stutters. A reboot instantly fixes it for a few matches
I report it to nvidia but nvidia ignores it, I guess nvidia and TC have a bad track record together. I even got a reply from the nvidia guy on reddit but he just completely ignored the issue since it always seems to be gears and no other game suffering from the new drivers.
But it didn’t start with OP4 at least in my case. I just deal with it personally
Yes I am also getting stuttering now after the operation 4 update. Before the update it was fine. I would sometimes stutter in SOME matches when someone would pick up a power weapon/grenades. Offline I get no stuttering at all. I have a 2070 rtx , i7 9700k 16gb ram and game is installed on my ssd.
Edit: I just noticed Windows was downloading a ton of updates and doing stuff in the background so that might of been my issue. Going to do more testing when it’s done.
Game seems better today, I still get a stutter when someone picks up a power weapon or grenades though for whatever reason but everything else is smooth again. The hit registration with gnasher feels absolutely terrible after the update though. I dunno how many more 87 damage in 1 point blank shots I can take haha.
Maybe it’s related to the paging operation errors with the game’s virtual memory as I have at least 100 warnings in the system event log every time the game is started with the latest or old Nvidia drivers.
With an AMD graphics card is it the same?
Either way, I know the GOW and Nvidia games are not good friends.
