Gears of War 5 Runs At 60 FPS With Dynamic 4K On Xbox One X, Rarely Hits Native 4K

Gears of War 5 is out later this September. It will be released for both Xbox One and PC. The game also supports for Xbox One X providing a better resolution and frame rate.

Gears of War 5 fans were able to play the game early through a multiplayer beta test. YouTube channel VGTech has taken the time to capture footage from this test and has shared his finding for the frame rate and resolution.

Xbox One X in the Versus mode uses a dynamic resolution with the lowest native resolution found being approximately 2560×1440 and the highest native resolution found being 3840×2160. A form of temporal reconstruction is used that can increase the pixel count to 3840×2160 when the native resolution is below this figure. A native resolution of 3840×2160 seems to be rare here but pixel counts at 3840×2160 are common due to the temporal reconstruction. Xbox One X in the Boot Camp mode uses a dynamic resolution with the lowest native resolution found being 1920×1080 and the highest native resolution found being approximately 3200×1800. A form of temporal reconstruction is used that can increase the pixel count to 3840×2160. A native resolution of 1920×1080 seems to be rare in this mode and pixel counts at 3840×2160 are common due to the temporal reconstruction.

So Xbox One X can drop to 1440p in the Versus mode while it can go up to 1080p in the Boot Camp mode. Native 4K resolution is quite rare to see in both of these modes but temporal reconstruction technique is used to provide a reconstructed 4K resolution. Microsoft’s Gears of War 5 promotional material did mention 4K and 60 FPS support.

In the case of the Xbox One, 720p is the lowest resolution in both Versus mode and Boot Camp mode. It uses a similar temporal reconstruction technique to hit 1080p resolution on the Xbox One as well.

Both of the consoles run the game at 60 FPS offering a smooth experience during the multiplayer gameplay.
