1080p Testing with the GTX 960 and R9 380
When compared to the games Day 1 performance Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has made some tremendous performance improvements, finally allowing the GTX 960 and R9 380 to perform similarly. Now Gears of War: Ultimate Edition can run well on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, which means that we can all PC gamers with DirectX 12 comparable PCs can finally have a good gaming experience.
Both AMD and Nvidia have performance improvements here, but sadly the games framerate cap at your monitors refresh is still preventing us from going above 60FPS. We are currently looking into getting a 144Hz monitor for future UWP/ Windows Store game testing, but for now we are limited to 60FPS.
When looking at AMD's performance we can see that there is a night and day difference between AMD's performance today and AMD's performance at launch, with the game no longer having graphical issues and AMD's R9 380 actually outperforming the GTX 960 at higher settings.
