CD Projekt RED: 1080p Issues On Xbox One Will Persist

Ever since the Xbox One’s launch back in November, reports of the system’s struggle to provide a 1080p resolution on most titles have been plaguing the web. Now, The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt RED claims that the upcoming DirectX12 update won’t remedy the resolution issues for Microsoft’s current-gen console.

Balazs Torok, a developer on The Witcher 3, shared his thoughts on the DX12 update while speaking with GamingBolt. 

“I think there is a lot of confusion around what and why DX12 will improve. Most games out there can’t go 1080p because the additional load on the shading units would be too much. For all these games DX12 is not going to change anything”

“They might be able to push more triangles to the GPU but they are not going to be able to shade them, which defeats the purpose. To answer the first question, I think we will see a change in the way graphics programmers will think about their pipelines and this will result in much better systems hopefully.”
