Xbox Series will start to get more FPS Boost games in the coming weeks. The head of Program Management, Jason Ronald has explained how it all works.
I guess its relevant to point out, since the article doesn’t mention it anywhere, he is referring to lowering the boost in resolution that the Series X is already capable of doing, same with anisotropic filtering, which is a 16x af given on a system level. Those are the ones reduced, not original settings, since they can’t change a game’s code (and the whole idea is that even Devs don’t have to)
So much for "true native 4K", and secret sauce to keep 60fps in last generation games is to drop resolution like every other console in the market. Good lord!
You didn’t read it huh?
A headline hopping troll.
Yes I read it, did I said something wrong?
OmFg....please just read the article and first comment that explains even what the article didn't.
Let's just think about new original games, than keep obsessing with 4k 60fps, FFS!! Or improve textures and physics. With regards to backwards compatibility, microsoft and Sony are doing great.
I love the fact games I already own are being upgraded for free. Far Cry 4 runs so much better at 60fps, and it loads in just a few seconds, on Series X.
That goes against everything Microsoft has said about the feature. They stated that the code hasn't and won't be touched. That the method they're using is more or less tricking the cpu into thinking it's running double the frames. I wish I could find the video source with Larry talking about it
They still are, the article is misleading into making it sound like its the original settings being touched. Instead what they meant is that a game going for higher FPS might use the original resolution instead of the boost that BC games get, or maybe instead of a 4x boost in res it will only get 2x, etc Same with anisotropic filtering, normally they get 16x as part of BC, but it could be reduced or removed in the fps boost mode
Microsoft and Sony our next gen consoles are doing full ray tracing 4k/60fps!!! Here we upgraded games from 7/6 years ago for you to enjoy them
