The Witcher 3:
Wild hunting performance on the Xbox hardware has never been what I’d call “excellent”. So, when Microsoft announced that CD Projekt RED’s massive single-player RPG was one of the games getting an “enhancement” patch for the One X I got much excited. Lastly, The Witcher 3 would be playable on the computer I got it for. The patch has come recently and with it an “advanced” tab in the display options. You can choose from both 4K Mode or Performance Mode. the former gives you 4K graphics at a locked 30 fps on a UHD display. For 1080p TV owner, that translates to super-sampled visuals and 60 FPS in the brief tests.
Performance mode latter prioritizes frame-rate over maximum visual fidelity. Using a dynamic resolution system to target 60 fps. Which ever mode you pick, both feature high-dynamic-range video. The developer notes that the HDR will also be coming to PS4 pro “sooner” .It is a bit curious that CD Projekt RED would update a 2.5-year-old game at this point. But where the One X is concerned stranger things have happened.
