    Worked well at the original convention they showed it at.
    It was after that with the new rendering engine everyone cried downgrade (which tbh is a bit unfair as they had to change the engine).
    The excuses about affecting PC seemed a bit of a convenience to me and started after they mentioned changing it for consoles, especially as they were very optimistic with what was working at that gaming convention that was a visual feast.

    Cheers

    I don't think the first few initial trailers were running at real-time though

    True,
    but considering they were maintaining one rendering engine just like Quantum Break without it being expanded in capability for PC, meant graphics were always going to be more about parity than diversity - not deliberately and more to do with logistics both technical and cost-wise.
    And that is what we are seeing more these days, only a very few games actually have a notable visual improvement between Ultra-High-Console setting, beyond a bit of subtle shading/subtle alias/draw distance.
    Without Hairworks or AMD PureHair then Witcher 3 and Rise of the Tomb Raider would be subtle improvements at the maximum setting on PC.
    Cheers

    So, no multi GPU, no native rendering planned for the future, wait until May windows update for vsync/freesync/gsync, memory management problems as I thought and stuttering/frame pacing issues that are going to be fixed in a future update.

    I honestly wonder how did it pass through QA in this state, and they could just wait for the May windows update to release the PC version and have some time to polish things up...

    I guess you could say this update was a quantum of solace for you.

    Phil Spencer isn't being very convincing with his supposedly revamped interest in Windows PC gaming.

    The game is 60+ gigs, the patch includes an "upscaling" option now, some images from gaf with upscaling set to off (and film grain set to off)

    Temporal reconstruction is still on, maybe it's running the game at a higher res but still reconstructing the image?

    Edit: Damn, perf for Maxwell cards is apparently still shit, a guy at gaf says he is playing the game maxed at 1440p "native" and perf is at 20-25 fps, bah! Some images:

    I guess we can get true 4K now but probably runs at <10 fps :D

    I asked him about the upscaling too, i'm guessing all it does is using the native res to upscale to higher res rather than having the native res as the target res of the reconstruction.

    What? It doesn't have exit button before?

    How the heck normal gamer and couch gamer know how to exit then?

    Does xbox guide button have system wide exit menu?

    What the heck! Quantum break runs in windowed with borders? I though it at least runs in full screen borderless mode.

    Seriously, UWP is still in beta or something?
