A comparison between Witcher 3 on the PS4 Pro, Xbox One and PC.
But isn't one 60 fps.... and the other... isn't?
Your are right! The pc version is 60fps
XB1X is 60 frames.. I'd wager a typical 500 PC is not,!!!
So we are calling targeting 60 fps, 60 fps then?
The game runs at over 60fps a lot of the time on my PC and Gsync monitor. Still, I think he is referring to the fact the XB1X runs at around 60fps much of the time in performance mode and the PS4 Pro doesn't.
at 1080p I think a $500 gaming pc might be able to hit 60 fps.
Agreed. I'd rather have locked 30 than unlocked. Unless it stays at 60, there's no point. Locked 60 > locked 30 > unlocked.
It is 60 FpS that scales.down from 4k to hit it's mark. The Pro does not include. 60Fps option at all. Not to mention it is a 100% increase in pixel count over the Pro version on 4k mode with all of the bells and whistles like increased textures resolution and filtering that the Pro also does not have. Definitely closer to PC than Pro. Only thing it really lacks in the increased Nvidia gameworks physics that most gaming PCs have a hard time running anyways.
So it's like 4K and medium settings with 30FPS or you can unlock the frame rate and lower the resolution a bunch to get closer to 60FPS, but not actually 60FPS. Really it's no better than a mid range PC with a GTX1060 in it. Why do people insist Xbox One X is like a high end PC? It's a mid range PC at best, and a 2016 one since GTX1060 is 18 months old at this point.
@everybody I love how the PC and PS4 fanboys are both in here downplaying the fact the Xbox X is performing well. It may not be selling a ton but the fact is that it's performance has been awesome for a console.
@ProjectVulcan That is how fanboys justify their $500 purchase for the 2nd time this generation.
60fps on the X. Boss
All 3 look good. On the outskirts witcher is 60fps on perf mode on x. In the city it's 40fps. Still waiting to see pro patched. But it's a great game no matter the system.
It's not 60fps but it should have at least a smoother framerate than the Pro. Let's just wait for Digital Foundry's video. :)
X version clearly looks best. I can't even understand the subtitles on those other versions.
I know, but I have to admit, 60 fps sucks in towns in cities. Great for the countryside though. Could use some work.
It hits 60. It's why the put on a dynamic resolution that scales down from 4k. @wind It's already been patched on PS4. The only thing they are adding now is HDR which it is currently lacking. It runs at exactly 50% of the res of native 4k
It runs pretty much the same framerate on the Pro (minus maybe 1 fps dip) @ 4k. The only difference is CB on the Pro, while on the X it's native. The Pro doesn't have a dynamic scaler nor does it have a 60fps mode. Maybe they patch it in. Might well work for 1080p @ 60fps. Now that they have a 60fps mode. I wonder how much the X actually scales above 1080p @ 60fps. It drops all the way down to 1080p in the 60fps mode.
60fps on X most of the time, unless you go into Novigrad which it drops to 40s. Much better than Pro's 30 plus you get higher res textures and slightly better draw distance and HDR. Pro already got the enhanced update to run at 1920x2160 checkerboard 4k and slightly better AO. Not gonna see 60fps mode on Pro Im afraid
Not in 4K @ 60fps, though.
Seriously the lengths some of you go to to discredit any advantage Xbox has is disturbing
Xbox performance mode can't even maintain stable 40 fps at Novigrad. And it's like running on PC medium settings. on 1080p https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I call more N4G BS. Which mode is this ?
CD Project really messed up this time. No HDR for PS4 Pro until next year, No 4K textures for XBOX One and no HDR at all for the PC!!!!!! F....k
>.> The game looks good for PS4 even without HDR. Did you notice how close you had to zoom in to actually see differences? And most important.... Almost no one owns a PC Monitor that supports HDR. The only one that fucked up are your expectations.
Not everyone plays on their PCs strictly on monitors. Many people have their gaming PCs hooked to TVs. There's no reason the PC shouldn't have the same HDR option in this game. Plus, HDR monitors are going to become more and more common anyway. The differences are readily apparent in the comparison videos and they'll be much more apparent while actually playing the game at full quality.
@Starchild still it is nothing they should implement in retrospective. The only reason they did is because microsoft payed them to make it exclusively for them (at least temporal exclusive) ... From Experience at home with a 4k HDR 65" TV ... hype is overrated ... its only at most nice to have with current tech. CD Project Red should focus on their new project ... and maybe plan it to have HDR and 4k from the start.
Do you have proof for that stupid Microsoft exclusive paid for comment. Because I have seen nothing that would lead me to believe that CDPR participate in those crappy practices. So do yourself a favor and don't look foolish with asinine comments.
"4k textures" is just a made up term, unless they actually want to store each texture at 4k... which would make zero sense.
Texture resolution is very real. And the higher the resolution of the texture the more detailed it will look. Textures aren't made in the same aspect ratio's of TV's though, they are square. But 4k games do demand textures made for 4k if you want it to look its best.
while that's true, most games already have high enough quality assets for 4k resolution to look great (except pre rendered scenes). heres a look at what higher than standard quality textures do https://www.rockpapershotgu...
They didn't mess up because they owe you nothing. You should be glad they're even releasing those updates.
Well, next year is like what 2 weeks?
The PC is in different zone graphics wise pro and x looks pretty much the same glad i own this on pc not consoles version the pc mods for outfits and gameplay is what makes this game fun to play
No HDR is such a big deal for people who have HDR setups. Right now X is the place to play in my opinion. The HDR looks amazing. Still lose out on all the PP from PC but it is worth the trade off to see the game in it's full dynamic range of colors.
PC aleays win!!
I guess this depends on the PC, and if you compare the price then the clear answer is NO !
As he said PC always win because it can do what the consoles can do but the consoles can't do what a PC can do
Yes, but when you buy the PC version you have the option to play it at any quality level you want based on what hardware you choose. And you can adjust the graphics to your preferences, so you're not stuck with the graphical look and performance that the developers pick for you. Finally, when you do decide to upgrade your PC the game will scale up to the abilities of your new hardware, so when you buy the PC version everyone is getting that superior version it's just that it might take some people longer to enjoy it at its best. Beyond that, there are also mods that take the game to a whole new level and many of us are already enjoying those mods. There are a lot of advantages to playing games on the PC. It might cost somewhat more upfront (although not as much as some allude to), but it objectively does offer you advantages over consoles.
The One X version shits on the Pro, not only cause of higher resolution, but an inclusion of a 60 FPS mode. Oh and HDR on this game is stunning, which the PC version doesn't have....so despite not matching it at its best, the One X version stands on its own as a great option
PC doesn't need HDR we have sweetfx/ reshade and enb HDR is irelevent to a PC gamer
I wouldn't say it's irrelevant. We do have tools to dramatically affect how the game looks, but HDR is still a very nice thing to have. It's great that the XB1X has it. Hopefully they give the PC version that option.
Lol Sweetfx and reshade aren't substitutes for HDR you donut.
IMO, HDR gives a bigger bump to visuals than higher res. Take that as you will.
Tank lol what before i say any thing else are you a PC gamer ?
I am very much a PC gamer, yes. Also an avid AV tech enthusiast. Before you do say anything else, consider that HDR allows a monitor to display shades that it otherwise wouldn't be capable of. If you think sweetfx or reshade can make your monitor more capable than it already is... do continue.
tank-=--- please show me a HDR version of this on consoles because you said SWEEFX/reshade doesn't have the same effect lol Mr enthusiast https://www.youtube.com/wat... ......... and here is a personal screen from my gameplay of the wicther 3 without HDR https://imgur.com/EANxy9Y
How can I possibly show you a HDR screenshot if you don't have a HDR display? I can't. And that's sort of the whole point encapsulated neatly. Ignoring that whole technical issue that you aren't grasping, I'm also an AV tech enthusiast. As with most people that are into AV, I'm a bit of a purest. The ultimate goal is to present the media as closely to the way it is intended as possible. HDR is true to the artists vision. Your over-saturated, extra yellow screenshot is just kind of horrible.
Unlocked 60 might as well be 30. Xbox version can't hold a candle to the PC version.
X can drop down to low 40s in performance mode at 1080p best way to play it is in resolution mode sticks to mostly 30 fps .Pro getting a new patch prob the same as this one in a few days ..
I hate judder/stutter so I defintely agree with you. Framerate consistency is very important to me.
Also, water is usually wet
Both the ps4 pro and x still looked washed out compared to pc but the funny thing is the differences between x and pro i thought would be greater than they actually are. Who looks at this and thinks the x version looks substantially better?
The writer says the update is only 500mb while in fact it is 40g. So maybe he should check again before publishing nonesense 🤣
Damn shame PC isn't getting HDR. I re-bought it on the X. And yes HDR is that big of a deal. We are buying really nice TV's with this feature, and it looks amazing. Very disappointing in this decision for the PC version. That said, it looks and plays amazing on the X, nice job on the update.
Funny. Yes, the PC version is light years ahead, but to get it running at 60 frames on ultra settings in 4K like that you need a $2,000 PC minimum, $3,000 PC ideally. I have two 1080tis myself and I can do this, so I know what it takes. If you replace PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC with $350 PC, $500 PC and $2,000 PC, what you'd see on screen would be roughly the same result. It's all rather silly really.
Xbox One X surely looks better than Pro. Not by a staggering amount, but I definitely see it.
Maybe, but X still has better texture resolution, render resolution, shadow map resolution, draw distance, better texture filtering, higher LOD and faster load times... and oh yeah, that whole 60fps thing it does. It may be closer to the Pro than PC but it’s well ahead of the Pro so the PC version must be pretty darn good.
Of course. This will be the case with every game.
both console versions look muddy, lacking detail, I imagine this has to do with fxaa methods used and overall lower texture resolution of in game assets
Depends on what you're comparing. The long shot of the forest shows the X version is closer to the pro and Gerald himself as well. The little girl, cement banister and ground shows the X version is closer to the PC version.
I'm a gamer since the genesis of gaming, i swear everytime i visit here i must feel sick. how did it come to this? Gaming used to be about getting together and have a good time, today it's all about toxic Console Wars and blind fanboyism.
We're back to the early ps3/360 graphics wars. It was exactly like this in 2008. It's the only ammo xbox fanboys have so of course they'll use it to take shots at the competition. Than the roles will reverse when sony have the more powerful console and on and on It goes.
Once 4K reaches the FPS of 1080p with everything maxed then it's time to upgrade, in the mean time 1080p and maybe even 1440p and FPS above 80 or even 100+ all the time is king. Playing Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Overwatch for example with FPS always over 100fps+ everything maxed @ 1080p with GSYNC is simply amazing. Hell it can be 8k but if the fps are not even near triple digits. that's a big pass, only exception is MMO's which FPS do drop way down because they are mostly CPU dependent.
Don't misunderstand the article guys. This is about the 1x plain and simple. Anytime The 1x gets any kind of update big or small, it needs to be out there for the public. When the pro got game updates none of this happened. DF didn't drop anything to show it, gearnuke, Eurogamer, and others didn't write an article.
Usually I don't notice ambient occlusion at all but there is a huge difference here between Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. Everything else is also leaps and bounds. But of course, PC is where it's at if you want it all. That's if you can afford it though.
Who gives a shit it is a 6 year old game,.. (and overrated by a giant mile ,.. clunky piece of game) You guys are talking about the witcher 3 on the verge of 2018,.. must really have nothing to play I guess. What year is this? I bet in 2025 Witcher 3 will look and run even better,.. and look like shit anyway
