The Division Uses Dynamic Resolution Scaling On Xbox One

The trend continues.

Posted By | On 03rd, Feb. 2016 Under News


The Division New 1

Ever since we started seeing trailers earlier this year for The Division, there has been a lot of talk about the possibility that Ubisoft reduced the quality of the game’s graphics. The talk has only ramped up since the beta launched, mainly because people have actually been able to get their hands on the game and get a really good look at the title.

We carried out an initial report last week on the Xbox One version and claimed that it was running at a full 1080p graphics. Later on, trusted tech analysts at Digital Foundry also came up with the same assessment but it seems that the game is now running at a dynamic resolution on the Xbox One. This report comes from Digital Foundry who once again dived into the beta to check the pixel counts. They concluded that the game is actually running at a dynamic resolution and it seems to change randomly depending on the available GPU resources. This is indeed the case as the pixel count was changing randomly and it was quite difficult for us to catch it when we first counted it. Since the resolution was dynamic we only came across scenes that were being rendered in native 1080p.

It must be noted that this is a beta build and things can change in the final version. The game comes out in March so in the meantime check out our head to head graphics analysis of The Division on all platforms below.

    We have the more powerful system at 2.6TF when professionally unlocked,
    but now agreed we don’t want them to use the full DX12 now.

    • Dotcum22

      So you bought a console that’s powerful to run games much better than they do right now but they choose not to. What a waste of your money then what a bad console I would throw it away without a doubt. I am happy everything you type is based on pure lies and your cult B.S else the x1 would be a terrible console what it ain’t. You guys spread so many lies about the x1 and then even call your self the best fans. You really don’t have a clue it’s sad

      Don’t worry about him mate, he is special. He is so special he has two birthdays, one when he was born and one when he was diagnosed☺

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We are not a cult. Our forum has researchers that explain why our system I better.They say Microsoft has locked out the graphic queues which we agree with anyway

    • Dotcum22

      Show proof of your researchers credentials because trust me they are a fraud naive boy

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      They haven’t shown us their C.Vs, so we cant link it

    • Dotcum22

      So you believe them without any proof? I can photoshop some tech slides and say I am researcher to lol everybody can do that.. The difference is are you naive and follow any person that claims things you would like or do investigate yourself and find out the truth yourself. Don’t be naive kid and do your own research ask real researchers that are proven to be one with official papers and no fanboys with a crazy cult website. Go to official channels go tweet Phill Spencer with your question.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      It’s Working out how they said it work, play weak from launch and wait for the right moment to unlock the hardware.

    • Dotcum22

      But it will never happen mate. They will come up with new lies and nda b.s for you to keep believing them. Think about it for real how honest it would be for a company with loads of fans that spent there hard earned cash on a console they support. That the console is much stronger than they say it is can run games much better than they actually do all because they want to play weak for really no good reason at all ( let Sony recover is real nonsense and a very bad reason if it was true) how false and unfair would this not be for the fans plus the investors? Ever thought about that? Use your brains mate you are smarter than that cultists b.s
      Trust me the hardware will never be unlocked because it does not exist the X1 ain’t playing weak at all let’s just hope dx12 will give a nice boost but that’s all plus that’s all that’s needed the X1 is good enough as it is already. Be a real fan and stand with the X1 as it is right now without the unconfirmed crap Mr. X spreads without factual proof. Be smart kiddo

    • Kidd

      There under Nda and a an iron clad contract or agreement not to release info specifically for there company if it were that easy to just ask Phil Spencer we wouldn’t be having this conversation?

    • Dotcum22

      lol we got another one! more delusional fanboys! You will see mate that NDA fantasy will never come out you will see and then of course you will lie and change everything why it never happened.

    • Kidd

      What site do you join or visit for Xbox One research? I want to follow along.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      Professionally researched and backed up at misterxmedia.com

    • Kidd

      Xbox One on release was 2 years ahead of itself and was premature & until it’s unlocked and fully Dx12 compatible will you be able to understand!!

    • Dotcum22

      Lol you serious

    • Kidd

      Why does it matter to you? Not like i taking from you? Who’s lying and how do you know?

    • Dotcum22

      Use your brain mate don’t follow fake research teams without any credibility that they really know what they are talking about. I understand you want you purchase to be the best. But if it’s the best personally to you that’s enough right? There is no need for all the bs unconfirmed crap a lot of fanboys are spewing about the x1 without any proof. Don’t follow that road and yes I don’t care I laugh at it and love to discuss with delusional fanboys

      Only our system has the gpu power to snap live tv and the only system with an hdmi input!

    • ThePlumbus

      Wow , such power ! Snapping live tv ! I have an Xbox One to play games , not to snap a small annoying screen !

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We did ask for a TV based console and they delivered.

    • Gamez Rule

      At least MS still allows Xbone TV to be used like shown years ago☺

    • Gamez Rule

      GPU is better in PS4. Mind you so are 99% of games released on PS4 too

    • Ulyriel Eldryth

      HDMI input is pass through, my receiver has it too. The architecture of the chip is based off Jaguar and code named kryptos. There isn’t a second SOC chip on the motherboard. Go look at the Xbox teardown. No chip. Think about that. Also the RAM speeds are slower so the xone has buffer lag. I have both systems and a gaming rig, and by all means the xone is the inferior device. Even if Microsoft could supposedly unlock the other 2 cores dedicated to the operating system, than Sony could too. You forget they both have them locked. The difference is Xbox has a heavier weight operating system that demands more. That’s why it has the better RAM supporting the system not games. So in order to unlock said power you’d have to remove your operating system. Your arguements don’t look at all the elements involved. Now imagine if the ps4 unlocked it’s cores and over clocked. It would still be better. Bottom line is Microsoft spent money on their system to be a multimedia console first and foremost. Sony was a gaming console first and foremost. That’s why xones operating system is heavier, that’s why it has the HDMI pass through for its dvr and whyb originally the kinnect wan mandatory. They had to take steps backwards to even get the games to run as they do now.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We have 2 professional researchers and an insider for our forum that proves we have been playing the weaker system from launch.
      We have x-rays that show we have a 2nd layer under our SOC that is hardware locked still.
      Sony need to win to recover and keep Apple out of the console market.
      We have agreed its best to give Sony the win and keep the layer locked now under the NDA.

    • Ulyriel Eldryth

      You do realize from a heat distribution standpoint, having a second layer SOC and a hidden GPU without proper heat syncing and airflow would be a fire hazard, it would cause the chip to overheat and shutdown the system. Look, I own all the systems as gaming is a hobby. I design and build pc’s. All the ‘proof’ that guy, mister x, has, none of itakes sense. I’m not going to press this ant further. I do feel bad for you, and others like you that are eating this up. I hope you aren’t too disappointed disappointed when your dream never becomes a reality.

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We have agreed Sony need to win this gen and have agreed with the NDA been extended. We have been told it may be all generation now and have support that.Sony need to win and we support that.

    • Ulyriel Eldryth

      “Microsoft’s Albert Penello has tweeted that there’s no additional GPU on the Xbox One aside from the one integrated on the main SOC. He has also stated that the performance differences between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are greatly overstated!

      No add’l dGPU. Working on more tech deep-dives. XBO is plenty capable now and in the future. Perf. differences are greatly overstated.”

      — Albert Penello (@albertpenello)

    • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

      We agreed with our researchers – he was under NDA.

    • Ulyriel Eldryth

      “I thought I had already said something about that. There is no 2nd GPU, there is no stacked GPU,” Penello said on Twitter. Later writing on Reddit, Penello noted that Microsoft’s recent Direct X12 announcement might have made the rumor re-appear.

      “I didn’t think [the second GPU rumor] was festering because I thought I’d already commented on it. For some reason the DX12 announce seemed to make it resurface,” he said.

      Regarding DX12 specifically, Penello said he’s not that completely caught up on the new graphics API just yet, and so he’s not sure how it will directly impact Xbox One. Still, he said players can expect advancements to performance over time on Xbox One.

    I personally would prefer PS4s extra grunt going to better lighting/draw distance/AA etc… for some games rather than resolution.
    When you are playing halfway across the room from the couch you really don’t notice the low res as much – eg. Battlefront at 900p looks pretty good (just slight jaggies).
    Of course get closer to the screen and you can see the lower detail, shimmer, aliasing… but just don’t leave the couch…

  • Gamez Rule

    Here is the correct video that was needed to be shown. Xbone is not a native 1920×1080 resolution and is approx-19% below PS4’s native 1920×1080 resolution.
