New Xbox One system update improves 4K visual performance in games.

Recommended Posts

Curious how that even pans out or applies, what kind of system software update could they supply that seemingly frees up more rendering resources?

 

OS version - 10.0.17763.4085 (rs5_release_xbox_dev_ 1902.190131-1620)

Release date

2/12/2018

Audio

  • Added reliability fixes to Cortana.
  • Unplugging a headset during video playback no longer results in audio loss before video playback freezes.
  • Made audio system upgrades when switching from Home to a game or app.

Cortana

  • Improved Cortana responsiveness to commands.

Console

  • Fixed an issue that caused some consoles to crash unexpectedly.

Home

  • Improved performance on the Home Dashboard.

Mouse

  • Improved mouse responsiveness to reduce lag.

My games and apps

  • Improved the installation experience for various FastStart titles.
  • Fixed a problem in some games (e.g. Resident Evil 0) in which cutscenes would fail and the game would lock.
  • Fixes an issue to ensure certain apps like the Avatar Editor and Microsoft Rewards work on first launch.

System

  • Fixed an issue in which some people received the E203 error when taking a system update.
  • Improved performance on the network port.
  • Improved performance and reliability on the save game feature when games are suspended.
  • Improved speed and performance of My games & apps.
  • Improved idle screen performance.
  • Improved 4K visual performance in games.
  • Improved the performance of the guide on Home.

Video

You shouldnt have made it bold and underlined. Makes it standout and therefor I won't read it.

Cooke got owned.  Boosts performance not the way it looks. Could be a bs claim, but fixing any hitches when doing 4k, if one really exists. :wonder:

Then again, visual performance does indeed have to imply how it looks. Not just framerate. I call bs mixed with terribly worded claim.  

 

Don't some games not go 4k, even if you set them up for that? :wonder:

What odd wording indeed.  Visual performance could mean things like minimizing noise or shimmering..other artifacts that were maybe cropping up in certain instances, maybe framepacing?  Also could mean improvements to SS scaling when on 1080p sets or monitors.. stuff like that.  Since the word visual is used, it's hard to believe that it's actually meaningfully improving game performance or framerates.

 

It's very likely just how the Xbox interacts with certain 4K tv sets.  Who knows?  It would be pretty sweet of them if they actually did squeeze some extra performance out of the system though.

You hit the name on the head. Visual performance could mean anyone of those things.
