XB1X ARK: Survival Evolved Runs At 1080p and 60fps on Xbox One X, 1080p and 30FPS on PS4 Pro

“The Xbox one X is kind of equivalent to a GTX 1070 PC.”

The massive power gulf between the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X is now beginning to bear fruit. The developers of ARK: Survival Evolved recently talked about how their game will perform on both systems, and it looks like the power gap will be readily apparent.

“Instead of targeting 30FPS like on the other consoles, we’re targeting 60FPS for the Xbox One X,” said Studio Wildcard’s Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director Jesse Rapczak in an interview with WCCFTech. “I would say most of the time for PS4 Pro you would be seeing 30FPS on PS4 Pro at 1080P, whereas with the Xbox One X you’re going to see double the frame rate at 1080P, 60FPS. We might even allow the frame rate to go higher than 60 FPS, but we’re still looking into that. Right now it’s actually uncapped but on a TV it’s not that useful [because they’re locked to 60Hz].

“Previously on PS4 Pro, we had the option to choose between frame rate (720P@60FPS) and resolution (1080P@30). We removed it because it’s a better experience for the users now.

“Because ours is a multiplayer game, the complexity on the screen can be very unpredictable. Variable resolution is something we introduced this year to try and stabilize the frame rate on lower PCs and consoles so that when people go into a huge base and someone’s got a hundred dinosaurs, the resolution scales down but the frame rate stays smooth.”

It looks like Studio Wildcard is just in love with the Xbox One X hardware in general.”If you think about it, it’s kind of equivalent to a GTX 1070 maybe and the Xbox One X actually has 12GB of GDDR5 memory. It’s kind of like having a pretty high-end PC minus a lot of overhead due to the operating system on PC. So I would say it’s equivalent to a 16GB 1070 PC, and that’s a pretty good deal for $499.”

Xbox One X is priced fairly, and no one has ever argued otherwise- but a fair price is not always a good one, and the Xbox One X price is definitely not a good one. We’ll see how the mass market takes to it, however, when it releases on November 7.

    Tell us something that’s not obvious…. This is news ? It’s a given , the pro is not what developers are looking for ….

    • Alistein

      True but 1080p is not exactly as promising for a 4k console.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      This article is wrong.
      Xbox 1 X runs this in 4k 60fps while the Ps4 pro runs this in 1080p 30fps.

      Here’s the proof straight from the actual dev.


    • ProAssassin84

      Lol. Tell that to Triple exclusive deals and games for PS4. God of War was running on a Standard PS4 and was better looking then any game at the Show.

    • Dougdec92

      true but 1080P is a quarter of the promised resolution…afraid to have sweet checkerboarding?

  • Poseidon team

    PS4 Pro doing 60fps only at 720p? That’s hilarious. Greatness Awaits!

  • Mr Xrat

    1080p. So much for that beast fire power! That’s another third party game that fails to meet the standard they marketed for a year, and it’s one closely connected with MS. Pathetic.

    • Cenk Algu

      The idiot downplays the XOX but his own machine is significantly inferiror.Ubisoft went for parity doesnt mean the machine is weak Ugly Rat haha.Did you watch Split? When I watched that movie automatically thought about you hahahaha

    • Gamez Rule

      £450 for a *TRUE 4K GAMING* With no compromises console. = 1080p at 60fps ( uncapped ) = LMFAO!

    • Dougdec92

      preach brother, they thought their engineers were the all in all, guess they lied to Phil on that one, if indeed MS feels sabotaged then they should release exclusives to show the world how it is done….then again they cant..

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      This article is wrong.
      Xbox 1x runs ark at 4k 60fps

      Ps4 pro runs ark in 1080p 30fps.

      The Xbox one X has no competition when it comes to performance.

      Sorry buddy but this article is their to troll all the ps4 fans. Get their hopes and dreams up then destroy them with the reality that scorpio is capable of things that are impossible on the ps4 pro.

    • Dougdec92


    • greatnessIsaLIE

      This game runs in 4k at 60fps.
      The article is wrong and made a typo.
      The Xbox 1x will run ark in 4k 60fps while the Ps4 pro runs it at 1080p 30fps.
      Sorry bro but that’s straight from the developer. I’d take their word over mine or this journalist.

      That’s how powerful the Xbox Scorpio is. Gaming journalist believe 4k on scorpio is a typo when ps4 pro maxes out at 1080p.lol

      Keep dreaming buddy.


    • Gamez Rule

      I watched that video you posted.. And it doesn’t say Xbone X is 4k? Sorry but I think that it is 1080p unless you can show the game being officially 4k? Here is why I believe you’re incorrect on the 4k…”[On Xbox One X] We’re not targeting 4K resolution or anything like that, instead we’re targeting higher quality pixels.” = Big ARK: Survival Evolved Interview


    • Dougdec92

      i wonder what the tale will be like on red dead redemption 2 and Anthem.

    • greatnessIsaLIE


      They made a mistake in this article.
      That’s how much more powerful it is that these gaming website think 4k is a typo.

      Nope the xb1x can do 4k while the ps4 pro maxes out at 1080p on Ark.

      Keep dreaming buddy, that’s the only chance the pro can out perform the xb1x

    • Mike

      No, they didn’t make a mistake, that was intentional. Every site is doing the same thing. Perhaps they got a stack if cash put in their hands?

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Only pathetic thing here is the side by side performance of the ps4 pro compared to the Xbox one X.

  • Dougdec92

    1080p on the vapour cooled system, 12gb gddr5 ram and 6tflops of gpu power….damn im beginning to think this dragon beast is vegetarian and spews just hot air…..want to see the look on Aaron’s face and Philly too when he hears this…..4k60fps my…….ark survival. I bet Sony told the devs to hit just 1080p…pathetic.

    • Gamez Rule

      Phil stated on that E3 stage that “Scorpio will do games in true 4k visuals without sacrificing quality”

      Phil failed to state on that E3 stage that “Scorpio will not do all games in true 4k visuals without sacrificing quality”

      On that E3 video Scorpio was stated as *True 4k gaming, the highest res- the highest framerates, without compromises* ( Nothing about games running at 1080p ) LMAO!

    • Dougdec92

      He is plainly a big liar, i remember the first thing that Sony cleared out of the way was checkerboard rendering during the playstation meeting to unveil the ps4pro, Mark Cerny told us what to expect….but not Uncle Phil, he had to literally pull out his enormous chest and in a moment of unwise passion about how he is gonna beat Sony, he tells us these vague promises when in fact his console would be release in the following year when games are evolving…..if he thinks Devs are incompetent if they dont bring his TRUE 4K to life, then he should show the world how it is done by launching exclusives…..i would hate to be an xboner right now!!
