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".
