    Going off the *first* ~30% review bombs (that has now been mostly removed by Valve due to Ioi's requests from its embarrassment about its pricing, huge bugs in VR, etc.) ioi *claims* that its RT, etc. features will be deployed *later* (no confirmed ETA... again like its 2021 release) this year. o_O

    The GoW port by Santa Monica Studios is a great example of an untalented studio's port to PC, and it's not the driver.

    GoW has a terrible memory leak, extremely oversharpened DLSS implementation (NVIDIA needs to put their foot down on this continued inferior nonsense from these soft devs e g. RDR2), etc. and all ill behaviors are from the client.

    It means that the driver was tested by Nvidia with the game's version specified.

    Its known that GOW on pc suffer from memory leak, you can play normally until memory is saturated, no fix for now, even update 2 did not fix it.

    @ManuelG When is the Geforce Experience issue with Instant Replay/shadow play disabling itself going to be fixed? Or at least provide us with acknowledgement that is an issue and you can or can not solve it? Is there a work around? This has been reported by many people on many forums for years now and no response.

    You might want to keep that to yourself please, stop spewing misinformation, first the port is not even made by Santa Monica, its made by studio Jetpack, and second, the port, in this world where most ports are pure crap, its excellent, the issues that you mentioned will be fixed in future patches and do not hinder the progression or general feel of the game.

    "NVIDIA needs to put their foot down on this continued inferior nonsense from these soft devs e g. RDR2" > definitely nvidia is gonna listen to a random joe on the web no one cares about

    It was a *collaborated*, not solely, partnership.


    Now, how you take that 411, well, that is on you, or you could go back to your PlayStation Blog/forums and start yelling, while you are pushing your pom poms in the air... hard, but either way, I'm done with you.

    Well, a badly implemented and/or hard-coded stupid configuration of tweakable DLSS parameters shades bad marketing lights on the DLSS technology itself which should indirectly concern nVidia. Because all the user sees is that activating nVidia's DLSS (in that certain game where it's funky) makes the image garbage. In which case they will easily assume that DLSS as a whole is garbage (even though it's clearly not, since we can see good examples in other games), especially if they run into these bad DLSS implementations for the first time with DLSS. And this will easily stray them away from trying DLSS in other games where it's implemented and configured much better. This might also makes them feel that their RTX card was a bad choice because they paid for useless extra features (so they could have bought a different card without DLSS).

    DLSS in GOW isn't "oversharpened" though. It has some ghosting issues but that's another matter.

    I haven't tried this game yet, I only went by his personal feedback. So I all posted is highly theoretical (it's all theoretical and only built on the assumption the feedback had merits).
    But the theory still applies to any theoretical future DLSS games. And it makes me hope that nVidia is strict with their configurability of hard-coded DLSS parameters to prevent such theoretical scenarios).

    You can be quite astute at times but you are incorrect here.

    I've looked into this personally and one of the main instructions to implementing DLSS is to NOT have sharpening enabled WITHOUT ADDING a slider, SMS has failed this VeRy siiiiiMmple rule and enabled its values anyway.

    I mean, if a dev fails to follow super easy instructions, this is nowhere an NVIDIA issue, period.

    It is what it is. An SMS botched!

    all the problems with GOW but to me its the stuttering, the game for me stutters the instant its loaded up , menu is fine. then once in game stutters crazy
    there is no other way to discribe it, it is a stuttering mess for me and i have tried lowering graphics, checking hdd issues, stressing my memory to make sure its still stable lowered the games fps with its limiter from 120 to 60, makes no difference. i cant get this game smooth lol or even workable smooth its just totally unplayable and takes you right out of the atmosphere :( :(

    The extra stuttering now (random at launch but mostly from compiling) is from a *gift* from v1.02 so-called patch. Even more evidence to shine on SMS inferior practices.

    Speak for yourself, the port was greatly praised by portals such as Digital Foundry and I know many people with relatively humble rigs (including mine) that don't have any major issues with the game. Same goes for others who have higher end computers.I don't have any memory leak problems (maybe because I don't have 20 programs in the background when I play a game, who knows?) or stutter or anything that could make me come here and start to talk garbage about the game and cope as much as you do. Generally, when a PC port is bad, everyone can reproduce the same problems, more or less, in your case, seems like it's your problem. Try older drivers or something before blaming the port this much.

    The only ill behavior in here its yours, you almost seem like a PlayStation troll that decided to spread misinformation about the PC port, which is brilliant and you can't get over it.

    You have a 3090 but couldn't manage to get an SSD to play this game, as devs recommended? Do other games stutter the same way? Do you have an SSD so you can try the game in it? Don't use in-game limiters, use RivaTuner or simply enable v-sync, set your monitor to 60 or 75 hz and try the game that way.

    This game uses dx11 API, there isn't any "compiling" or "extra stuttering", check your computer for issues.

    I actually do find it a bit oversharpened, I wish that there were controls for that. It's not on the disgusting level that RDR2 is, but it's still a bit too much.
    There is stutter when you change areas, it's very momentary, but it's there. It even exists on the PS4 version, Alex also mentions it in the Digital Foundry video. It's not shader compilation, it's area loading.

    Odd, I don't see any stutter in this game at all. It's incredibly Smooth at 3840x2160 with everything maxed out on my system. There may be a minute stutter when transitioning from one area to the other, but it isn't very profound.
