Project CARS On Xbox One Won’t Be Updated To 1080p, Windows 10 Kernel Won’t Improve Performance

Ian Bell on the Xbox One version of Project CARS, PS4 CPU, DriveClub and AMD hardware performance improvements.

McLaren 12C Project Cars

Project CARS, although one of the best racing games of the year, has been facing severe criticism regarding its performance on consoles, specifically on the Xbox One. The game runs at 900p on the Xbox One and at times the frame rate performance is unstable.

However Slightly Mad Studios’s boss Ian Bell confirmed on the game’s official forums that they are currently working on asset optimization which will have a very large but indeterminate effect on the game. One user asked Ian whether performance can be improved if the resolution was dropped to 720p on the Xbox One. Bell stated that won’t work since they are not bound to resolution. However in the next few months they will carry out updates that will please everyone.

He also confirmed that the Xbox One version will never run at 1080p in the future. Later this year, Xbox One’s Windows 8 kernel will be changed to Windows 10 kernel. Unfortunately, Bell believes that Windows 10 will have no effect on the performance of Project Cars on Xbox One. Regarding the PC version and performance on AMD hardware, Bell stated that they are working with AMD and the PC version will receive further improvements.

Bell was also full of praise for the PS4 CPU, stating that it has a lot of power. He also shared his comments on the rain system in DriveClub, which to be honest is one of the best we have seen in the current console cycle. He stated, “We are going to try until it kills us to wedge physically based raindrop movements into the consoles and also improve the frame rate simultaneously.”

Project CARS is now available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • Pazz

    With Forza Motorsport 6 microsoft show that these statements are only excuses

    • XbotMK1

      So when your precious Xbox One can’t run a demanding game like Project CARs at the settings you want, you just fall back on the downgraded Forza 5 with baked lighting, no weather physics, cardboard cut-out crowds and trees, and poor road textures. Seems like a rather safe but missleading excuse.

      If Forza 5 is so great, why were Xbox fan boys hyping up Project CARs to begin with and harassing Ian Bell by demanding he squeeze more blood from a turnip?

    • Guest

      Not to mention, hadly or really bad AA and very low (if any) AF. You know AF the all so important AF whenever the X1 actually has a higher level of it. Fanboys are such hypocrites.

    • Psionicinversion

      shame Forza 5 had its development time cut down though eh because MS was forced to release they console along time before it was supposed to

    • Lrpasody

      Whoaaa whoa whoa Forza 5 has lovely road textures!

    • such.wow

      LMAO

    • zainfazal3000

      I don’t recall anyone hyping up Project Cars let alone Xbox fanboys.

      and it’s a good thing we have Forza 6 to fall back on considering Project Cars on Xbox One is crap. Forza 6 will most likely be a good racing game. Forza 5 while not a terrible game was a lackluster game when compared to the other games in the series. The reason being it was a rushed launch title. As long as the developers have enough time and don’t rush the game Forza 6 will hopefully be the game Forza 5 should have been.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      POS4 can’t run Project CARS at decent settings John Derp :^)

    • Guest

      So you haven’t even seen it yet you are over here already claiming its going to be good? How fanboyism. You fanboys are such fantards. Also like XbotMK1 said, FM5 has no weather, cardboard cut out crowd & trees, baked lighting, hardly any AA or AF, no day/night and way less cars. And you think that is somehow more impressive?! Yeah, alright, keep on praising inferiority.

    • Fweds

      Your calling people fanboys and then mention “XbotMK1” as though his not one simply because he is a Sony fanboy !!!!
      You fanboys are hilarious, Derp.

    • Barry Harden

      lol!
      Forza 5 cut out a lot of graphical assets just to have it run at 1080p@60fps. Forza 6 will be the same no less.

    • Psionicinversion

      Forza 6 and halo 5 will beat everything graphically sony has currently to offer in its respective genres

    • Barry Harden

      As for Forza6 it will look no where as good when you’re handicapped by a slower GPU and RAM. Same goes for Halo 5.

      Look, the XBone is just weak and you fanboys need to swallow that fact. NO amount of time or DX12 will “magically” give you the benefits of the PS4. It’s just the laws of physics.

      You can be in denial ALL you want.

    • Psionicinversion

      not if your not rendering frames in the normal way a game handles it… there are other ways

    • Barry Harden

      Secret sauce again? Is this the “hidden” gpu core that M$ is waiting to reveal?? Maybe that incredible DX12??

      Man you need to wake up. Nothing in the future will help the XBone system with its weak specs.

    • Psionicinversion

      Nope no secret sauce just using that tiled resources stuff and if it works how MS hopes. Usual way of rendering is even if something small has changed in the scene like a burning lamp you render the whole scene which is a ridiculous waste of resources tbh so if you can tile it up and then only the tiles that need re rendering because there changing get rendered your saving tons of gpu power and bandwidth. Not sure if it works like that 100% but when I looked at granites stuff which is software for tiled streaming it looks like it does.

      Low latency very fast ram is what you need but you wont need much of it because its there and gone like a flash. Not as simple as that obviously but maybe its not useful for rendering a whole game but small demanding parts that can help alleviate the gpu. Fact is deffered rendering is the standard easy way but it needs to die off and new ways of rendering need to take over to get better results

      So only half a month til E3 and we can see what they’ve got. If there games look crap will they won’t look crap but not as good as expected then fair enough but if they look really good then it obviously works

    • Barry Harden

      Ever given thought that if devs improved rendering for one console it will benefit all other console? Given the fact that both the PS4 and XBone share the same architecture you don’t think this so called rendering process would also boost the PS4?

    • Psionicinversion

      GDDR5 has very high latency, thats the problem good for sending massive chunks of data slowly down it but not good for small bits that need to go very fast, i dont mean 100GB/s fast i mean like 1ms fast instead of 10ms fast type of deal and thats eSRAM strength. Infamous has used a bit of tiled rendering in it but Tiled Resources might be a bit more advanced in what it can do over opengls PRT version, its how the API processes it end of the day. Not sure but im sure i saw it somewhere.

      have to see anyway

    • Barry Harden

      Nah I think you read it wrong. It’s time to stop hoping and get yourself a real gaming console like the PS4. Take a loss and sell that XBone to some other sucker.

    • Psionicinversion

      I’ve got a ps4 and it sux, don’t own an x1 and got a pc. Time will tell who comes out on top of the consoles. Hope its xbox because Sony are crap and need to die

    • Knowles2

      I’m DX12 will deliver some benefits but only in the dying days of this console war where games are built from scratch to use DX12.

    • Barry Harden

      Nope it won’t. Even the head of Xbox said it would only really benefit PC’s. You can build the games from scratch on DX12 but in the end you still have to deal with the weak hardware of the XBone.

      Just get a PS4 if you really want to game the proper way.

    • Fweds

      And Driveclub cut out 30Fps to add grapical assets and it’s only a simple arcade racer, so what’s your point ?.

    • such.wow

      Lets see Forza 6 with dynamic weather and stuff… Not going to happen, its going to have baked lighting and you will love it!

    • Ayepocalypse

      Actually it’s quite a look at For a Horizon 2. 1080p, Great AA, Weather, Open World. The only thing though is the 30fps, but I’m pretty sure uncapped it would run 40-50 fps since I rarely see it dip below 30. So Forza 6 might be able to look pretty good.

    • such.wow

      Horizon 2 isn’t 60fps, which is what I was getting at (it’s also a much better looking game than Forza 5).
      “With Forza Motorsport 6 microsoft show that these statements are only excuses” It might be 1080p 60fps, but it won’t look all that good (just like 5).

  • Nick

    yeah the rain is stupid pretty in Driveclub, piss on Project Cars for Lying for 2 years about their Wii U intentions.

    • Guest

      Who cares about the Wii U version, it would have sucked anyways. What are you a wii U fanboy to care?

    • Nick

      I am a fanboy for calling out a dev that lied the whole time saying the wii u version was coming along great, and they took crowd money for a wii u version they said they were going to release and are never now? Grow up troll.

  • d0x360

    Ian Bell is not to be trusted. This guy bans people from the project cars forums and starts insulting them when they bring up completely legitimate issues with the game. They have purged tons of bug reports and feedback.

    Slightly Mad Studios has also removed tons of promised features from the game. On the forum they keep saying it will come out as dlc…features that were part of the original game and what people people to back on kickstarter. Dont bring it up though or you will be banned.

    He also makes constant excuses for this games dismal performance. He’s a liar not to be trusted. Slightly Mad Studios pulled this crap sith NFS shift as well. The studio started because they split off from a different studio. The slightly mad side had the belief that games didn’t need to be highly polished you just needed to constantly say they were till people believed it.

    • Orion Wolf

      I’m not an Wii U fanboy or even a fan, but them basically lying to the community about the game appearing on the consle and now even delaying the game until Nintendo’s next console (whenever that happens) speaks volumes about this particular developer.

    • d0x360

      The studio has been lying about the game since kickstarter. They will keep lying just like they did on need for speed.

      I dont know if there issue is skill level or maybe just not caring. Its likely just not caring. Project Cars uses the shift engine which is now crazy old so its no wonder it runs horribly.

      I have the game on PC. I regret buying it. I out trust in a dev that not only didn’t earn it but had actively done things in the past to take trust away so I only have myself to blame. I just don’t want them to sucker more people in.

      As for the wiiu…what a load of crap. All they need to do to get it running is turn off global illumination and go to a prebaked lighting model. You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. They say the wiiu can’t handle the physics engine which is absolute bull. Forza ran on the 360 with a physics engine at 320hz…a physics engine that was more complex than project cars.

    • Guest

      Blah, blah, blah, wah, wah, wah. You’re having a nervous break down. The fact is your precious X1 is just to weak to run the game. Period! End of! You want better, get a PC.

    • Jim Peterson

      Piss off, Ive got an R9 290x with an I7 4970k and the game barely maintains 30fps. The dev plain sucks.

    • Guest

      Did you really think the that pathetically weak Wii U could handle this game? Some people are dumber than dumb.

    • Guest

      Take your meds kid. You’re bugging. Its no where near as bad as you say it is. But you obviously are angry as heck for it. Ian Bell seems like a nice guy and he’s talking which is more than I can say about a lot of these tight lipped devs. Now chill the f’ck out. Freaking fanboys!

  • drjonesjnr

    900p LMFAO Microsoft kept this one quite

    • Fweds

      Have you got learning difficulties ? it’s always been known it’s 900p seems like you and 6 others are the only ones that didn’t know.

    • Terminator

      he upvoted himself that’s how pathetic he is.

    • drjonesjnr

      Actually no i didn’t know. I knew the witcher 3 was but not this
      I’m not trolling if Microsoft can make forza5/horizon 1080p this dev doesn’t have an excuse.
      Pure laziness Imo

    • Psionicinversion

      hahahah thought you were mister facts, yet know nothing. It does have an excuse, forza and horizon use a custom game engine designed for the x1 and can use all the tricks. That cant happen with a multiplatform game engine so theres inherent inefficiences

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Medium settings on POS4

      Consoles are embarassing

    • drjonesjnr

      Does that mean the xbone is on low settings then? Good god lol
      If I cared that much about graphics mate I would take a long hard look at my life 😉

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      You seem to care a lot, console gimp.

      You bought a console. You don’t get good graphics :^)

    • drjonesjnr
  • Psionicinversion

    The PS4 CPU has a lot of power hahahahah thats the joke of the century, anything CPU related in the slightest and it crumbles under the pressure. Hes talking out of his @$$

    • Orion Wolf

      That would be indeed the case looking at the lack of NPCs in most ps4 games, especially the 1080p ones.

    • Psionicinversion

      the project cars guys talks about the rain but its done using the gpu not the cpu in driveclub i think

    • Guest

      Oh nice, make up some more sh’t. Assumptions, assumptions, assumtpions.

    • Psionicinversion

      well seeing as sony keep banging on about GPGPU constantly why wouldnt it?

    • Guest

      Or the lack of 1080p and NPCs in most X1 games, especially the MS ones.

    • Guest

      Psionicinversion has anything smart to say, hahahahaha that’s the joke of the century. Anything even remotely comprehensible and you fall apart and crumble under the pressure. Stop talking out your @$$.
      And btw, he’s referring to in comparsion to the X1 CPU, dumba$s. Now smarten up stupid fanboy.

    • Psionicinversion

      the x1 cpu is better, hes probably referring to the frame times which currently PS4 will be better at and DX12 should help to minimise frame times by alot. thats the API not CPU power

    • Tha Truth

      The joke of the century is an ignorant, uneducated, illiterate, unemployed, unwashed basement troll like you trying to refute the claims of someone who actually makes games for a living and thinking anybody is going to take you seriously.

      The PS4 is a better console than the Xbone, that’s a simple fact. That’s why Project CARS, The Witcher 3 and EVERY SINGLE MULTI – PLATFORM GAME EVER MADE all run in FAR superior resolutions on the PS4 vs what Microsoft’s worthless, last – gen Poverty Box can achieve. Stop trying to damage control your failure of a console, it only furthers your ignorance on the subject.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      And your last gen poverty box can’t run those games properly at next gen settings, loser

      PC Master race wins again :^)

  • liver4ever

    Like Forza 5 Forza 6 will be 1080p 60fps and much better than project cars in graphics
    MS Only Can Do That why I don’t know
    But I think Xbox One has Future Tech And full Support Dx 12 Like Xbox 360 in his Launch
    Thats Why 3rd party can’t Achieve 1080p And Microsoft Achieved This Easily In Forza 5 ,Forza Horizon ,HALO collection And help Bungie to achieve 1080p in Destiny
    X1 Architecture Just complex And New on Developers

    and don’t forget Phil Spencer Said Full dx12 coming To Xbox one
    and 7770 Not support full Dx12

    • Guest

      What the heck did you just say? All I read was, stupid, stupid, stupid, and more stupid. And FM5 isn’t technically doing as much as PCars

    • andy

      4 games out of 200 released games that can do 1080p??? Could you list some more please lol? That really isn’t a good defense there.

      And what you actually take from that is an attitude of “don’t worry, stay calm, there is no alarm bells going off here and NOTHING to worry about with games coming out in the future to this “next gen” console”. Shockingly even Unreal 3 engine games have problems getting to standard 1080p on Xbone. Think how bad Unreal 4 engine games are going to perform.

    • There’s way more I guess he used those as an example.

    • Psionicinversion

      Unreal 4 games will perform alot better as the game engine has built in support for handling the esram and stuff like that. Same way as it has built in support for handling sonys architecture. UE3 doesnt have that

  • carol argo

    ? Was there still some thinking that ps4 8 ace was not a huge hardware advantage most dev have yet to use? Xbox one is nice but having only 2 ace is hurting it a lot.and Ms should say ty to Sony, Sony isn’t using ps4 for server side,they use ps3 variant, so Sony has a lot of space for improvement if there is ever a need?Sony could move to a ps4 variant on their server side for ps4. Now ms:,say ty to Sony for being nice to you

    • Psionicinversion

      well considering AMD says 8 ACE queues is overkill it dont matter besides 2 ACE queues is fine for the xbox. the ACE queues have got nothing to do with it its its GPU that is the problem

    • carol argo

      Shader are always the problem ,I don’t say dev will use 8 but 4 is likely the sweet spot given how CPU work

    • Psionicinversion

      depends on how many Compute Units you have to. Cant slot jobs in, if there constantly worked by the main graphics pipeline

  • Cenk Algu

    Those guys are extremely untalented thats it.

    • Guest

      Just like you’re extremely unintelligent, that’s all.

    • Cenk Algu

      Ohh you again my stalker.I guess I am way smarter than you;)

  • XbotMK1

    Although it would be easy for me to troll this and just rub salt in the wounds of Xbox fan boys but I won’t. I’ll simply say, I told ya so.

    This is also hilarious because the PC fan boys were stating that Project Cars is better than Driveclub even though Ian Bell is praising the weather physics in Driveclub. Even though you could argue that Project CARS is a better overrall game, it is night and day when it comes to Project CARS and Driveclub weather physics and graphics.

    • Psionicinversion

      i think project cars weather is better than driveclub

    • XbotMK1

      Living in a constant state of denial is unhealthy.

      http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial

    • Psionicinversion

      Yeah it is derp soon as you can come to terms with your denial the better

    • XbotMK1

      Typical, “I know you are but what am I” response.

      So you’re disagreeing with Ian Bell, the guy who helped make Project CARS? Stay in denial Psionicinversion. lol

    • Psionicinversion

      hahahah you only agree when he says something in your favour. If he said we believe our weather system is better than driveclubs youd be hating on his comment. Everyone can read you like a book dude nothing new comes out of your mouth

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      At the end of the day you are still John Derp. Shill for a garbage weaksauce 30FPS console :^)

    • andy

      Err it is PS2 GEN effects compared to Driveclub’s. Drops on the window that “fade out” when the wiper hits them? Please.
      Have you ANY idea what you are talking about?

    • Psionicinversion

      That’s why I said everything except the wind screen effects are better. Unless I wrote that bit somewhere else and not here.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Drivedud looks like a PS2 game in general. Not next gen like Project CARS on PC :^)

    • Agrippa

      Drive club is garbage to play though. Btw where is that free version Sony promised us in 2013? (Drive club)

    • XbotMK1

      I’m pretty sure Andrew House just revealed that they were still working on it and it will inevitably launch. They may announce it at E3.

      If you all ready played Driveclub and bought the game and if you think it is garbage, then why are you concerned with the free PS+ edition?

      And just out of curiosity, when was the last time Microsoft gave away a free AAA big budget title for Xbox Live subscribers? They keep the same games on the roster each month to make it seem like they’re giving away the same amount of games as Sony when they actually aren’t and because they’re cheap. You can’t complain about the Driveclub PS+ edition if you own an Xbox One because you have no moral high ground to stand on.

    • Terminator

      Ummm maby not on Xbox One but on Xbox 360 they do so get your facts right dumba$$.

    • Terminator
    • Fweds

      PSN+ is £39 in the UK and you can get Xbox Live for £20 the 360 games are yours to KEEP no matter if you stop subscribing so that’s worth the money on it’s own.

      Your paying double for PSN+ you should be getting a lot more than what you currently get plus they are ALL only on loan, you stop paying you lose them ALL.

    • Psionicinversion

      You do get more, more downtime. hahah im pretty sure theyve been using PSN money to buy gaikai and onlive and invest it all into that rather than there actual network

    • Fweds

      They are certainly not investing it in AAA games that’s for sure.

    • Psionicinversion

      They are, there just not that good

    • Fweds

      They still have a lot of server dropouts and downtime there is no way they will add a millions more to that when it can’t even handle amount of the people who already have it.

    • Fweds

      Why would anyone argue Project cars is a better overall game when we all know it is as is Forza Horizon 2.
      Diveclub is a simple arcade game nothing more.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Project CARS on the PC does look miles better than DriveDud, loser :^)

  • Fweds

    Why would anyone think running windows 10 on Xbox One would have any effect on a game that has already been made ? that’s not what intergrating Windows 10 is all about at all.

    • andy

      Using an Application like Kodi is 🙂

    • Mark

      Same thoughts here haha

    • Psionicinversion

      because on PC its been shown to improve DX11 game performance just by having win 10 on there. The OS is much more efficient at stuff and WDDM 2 might help as well

  • Sheryl Taft

    Doesn’t change a thing. I won’t be upgrading to Windows 10. I’ve recently picked up FREE software at http://fasterwindows.info that has my computer running like new after doing a pretty fast scan, and I don’t see a point in getting and relearning an entirely new OS when I don’t have to. Even though Windows 10 is free, it’s going to have to take up a ton of space on my computer to install an ENTIRELY new Operating System. I know how tiring it can be to use your computer system when you are loading slow on every website, but since I don’t have that problem anymore I don’t need windows 10. Still love you guys at Dell though…

    • Psionicinversion

      hahahaha. yeah ok dude. when those games start rolling in DX12 only what are you going do?

    • Terminator

      38 upvotes from ghost accounts…

    • Psionicinversion

      ooops 39 now hahah. Theyll be crying when they cant play games anymore because it wont work on there old OS. So dumb

      Yes it’s a simple upvote bot, I don’t know why Discus hasn’t stopped them it’s pathetic.

  • Tha Truth

    Oh dear…it looks like once again Microsoft’s worthless, cheap, last – gen Poverty Box has been exposed as the weak, underpowered, non – gaming garbage it truly is. All that BS hype and lies about “Powah Of Teh Clouz” and now we find out it won’t make a bit of difference as multi – platform games CONTINUE to run in a far better resolution on the PS4 leaving the Xbone as nothing but a poor and ignorant man’s alternative, how sad. I wonder how the braindead, delusional, brand – humping Microsoft sheep are going to try and damage control this catastrophic failure.

    As the PS4 continues to be superior in every possible measurable aspect and the Xbone continues to slide down to the bottom of the sales charts where it belongs for being trash, Microsoft’s lies, overhype and underdeliver have finally caught up with them and now they and the delusional, non – gaming sheep who defend them have been exposed.

    Looks like a crap time to be an XBONE SUCKER…was there ever a good time? LMAO!

    • bardock5151

      Just to measure how far gone you really are, answer these questions.

      Do you agree that after 2 E3’s of a promised PS+ edition for Driveclub and a years worth of delays, that Sony deserves a free pass for still failing to fulfill a near 3 year old promise?

      Do you agree that account holders should be denied access to all of their bought games and all online functionality, when Sony refuses to refund user’s who have been victims of fraud through Sony’s marketplace, only because said user’s do the right thing and inform their bank of fraudulent activity?

      Do you agree Sony deserves a free pass after alluding to party chat on the PS3 for an entire generation, knowing full well that their hardware was entirely incapable of emulating the industry leading 360’s party chat?

    • HisDivineOrder

      I think he was talking about Xbox. You bringing up Playstation does not in fact, to show how far gone you are, negate what Microsoft has done wrong.

      I’m not agreeing with him (or you), but before you call him out on being too far gone, you should consider you’re responding to his discussion (or disparaging) of Xbox with complaints about Playstation.

      TLDR; If you live in a glass house, do not throw rocks.

    • bardock5151

      Considering my questions are baseline to determine his state of mind, your argument means very little and show’s your dislike of these questions being brought up.

      You might say you aren’t agreeing on either side and it doesn’t really matter if you do or don’t (which makes no sense, as I never stated an opinion, I only asked questions, unless you don’t agree with questions being raised), however by attempting to damage control my questions and seemingly taking offense, instead of calling out his opinions and fallacy’s, it stands to reason that your own opinions fall in line with the trolls and by extension agree with his trolling.

      Now, my questions remain just that, questions. If you wish to draw conclusions and attempt to twist those questions into more than they are, then that’s your choice. I am curious however, are you going to continue to damage control my question to a troll?

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Look at this garbage POS4 peasant trying to call everyone else peasants.

      You are the peasant since you still bought a peasant box running at 30FPS you Sonytard :^)

  • Demetrius Radford

    Its not that it cant hit 1080p they’re just not working to do it. the ps4 gives them more profit so they will work on it because they know they’ll get money back

  • zainfazal3000

    Project Cars sucks on both the PS4 and Xbox One neither one of them can maintain a stable 60 fps.

    The PS4 version just sucks less.

    • GHz

      Thats moral of the story. The game needs work but its still fun. Got it for my PS4. Needed to test a real racer on it cause DC just didn’t deliver. Pretty rain though 😉

      Point is @ least the XB1 has an excuse. Its still doing all this with DX9-DX11 engines on a DX11 API. Whats PS4’s excuse?

      .

      yeah exactly seeing as there forced into using the oh my super hyper powerful hyper low level GNM/GNMX whichever the higher level one of those 2 is keep forgetting cus its not worth my time finding out yet still lower level and supposedly much better than x1 DX11.

      no excuse i think its runnign out of bandwidth for highly demanding games whilst trying to fit compute jobs down its pipe

    Another example of DX11 coded game made for a DX12 machine. DX11 locks Devs out from XB1 features. End of story. Its a miracle Ian Bell and team got it near parity. Them old rendering tech just wont do XB1 justice especially when you have to consider PS4 development. Thats all it is.. Ian Bell was honest but the trolls want to believe this situation is a an example of what to expect when DX12 games are being coded in DX12 engines. An overall 14% increase for a DX11 based game and trolls jump up with glee. DX11 cripples XB1 but trolls dont want to ask the big question. Why didnt PS4 locked it @ a definite 60fps if it is sooooo powerful? Why the unlock frame rate? Whats their excuse?

    Lets wait for those DX12 coded games via DX12 engines. Then we can judge. Meanwhile this is what a DX11 game looks & behaves like when a PS4 ver. IS NOT AN OPTION. Devs can just do more! No PS4 ver = We can do way more on XB1.

    Trolls will be trolls but please let the game do the talking, and I aint talking 3rd party. You just cant judge XB1 performance based on that. Wait till full DX12 and stop the trolling and arguments.

    Last but not least, Ian Bell made a very interesting statement about specifics in machine variations that he cannot talk about…

      Awesome to see this again. The early transition from cutscene to gameplay drops my jaw. And def Remedy’s one of the best studios. Early next yr this should be one of the better games this gen. Thx for the post.

      Oh & yeah, tis the reason we all should be buying a preferred system, for the exclusives that make it shine..

      QB is the game that not only looks like, but behaves like true next gen. The physics and FX in that early demo is just out of this world. Devs can do more on XB1 when they dont have to factor in PS4. I wished that they wouldve released this game this year so it can go up against The Order. PS4 best against one of XB1’s best. Tech for tech. That wouldve been interesting.

    • Psionicinversion

      Yeah definately better than any of PS4’s stuff atm

      DX12 isn’t even out and a lot of 14% will be lost during a game production. These test are always done on 100% perfect bases, that will never happen in a real game. Sony will also be continually improving their own APIs and adding features as well.

      “DX12 isn’t even out and a lot of 14% will be lost during a game production.These test are always done on 100% perfect bases, that will never happen in a real game.”

      What do you mean?

      And yes, improvements are inevitable. Devs always come up with creative hacks to improve game creation.

    • Knowles2

      What I mean is that th 14% improvement is unlikely to come from DX12 once is working with a proper game rather than tech demos.

    • GHz

      How can you possibly know that when you have no access to a DX12 based game engine? There is not a Dev out there who knows what kind of improvements we’ll see. And then their is the fact that game development improves regardless. So to say no 14% improvement in a real game in the future makes no sense. Adding DX12 to that statement dont make it true. What about devs who code in dx11 who anticipate certain dx12 features? For example Epic games, lionhead with Fable legends? They accomplished a res jump from 900p to 1080p, upped their framerate to 60, and announced a 20% GPu improvement. Its obvious that they were talking about XB1 because PC ‘s in their possesion dont have trouble with 1080p.

      20% GPU improvement was for PC. http://news.xbox.com/2015/03/xbox-gdc-2015?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

      “Its obvious that they were talking about XB1 because PC ‘s in their possesion dont have trouble with 1080p.”
      “Obvious”? Don’t see how that claim can be made when MS has been nothing but vague with details for their console. Which tells a lot.

    No chit?

    Just to who see X1 Weak Why There Nda on X1 specs
    And Microsoft when made Xbox 360 Was super computer in first year and has new tech never made before and Xbox original same story
    why Xbox one run Destiny 1080p and trials 900p and titanfall 792p and ped 2015 720p exactly like X360 version
    technically if X1 run Destiny 1080p and witcher 3 900p and stable 30 fps than ps4
    then X1 can run titanfall 1080p and ghosts 1080p and and…. 1080p without any problems
    I have pc and know about performance in this games …
    Old gpu can run titanfall 1080p But can’t run other games in 5fps like X1 why …
    it’s Just complex architecture
    X360 shows true power after 2 years and I think ms will shows how X1 powerful in e3
    how weak console can run quantum break

    • Psionicinversion

      because MS and sony both went cheap on the price and didnt want to sell hardware at a loss. Thats why both are weak

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    “Windows 10 Kernel Won’t Improve Performance” There you go kids yet another nail in the coffin for any hopes xbone will benefit from any upgrade. Stop kidding your self’s and just except the fact your console will always be underpowered.

  • CaligulasRuin

    Look at these peasants arguing over whose outdated POS console is slightly better. Keep it up, the PC Master Race demands more entertainment!

  • Michael Norris

    Ok well i am not surprised one bit.People need to understand consoles already have these type of optimizations.Pc folks will have their cake and eat it.I don’t care if i get downvoted the truth is Dx12 is basicly the Xbox one SDK/API.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Still won’t stop Sony shills thinking their underpowered paperweight will outpower PC’s

      Poor deluded lambs.
