Recently, CD Projekt Red delivered the disappointing news that its Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen patch has been delayed indefinitely. However, we've come across this new analysis video showing the One X version running on Xbox Series X and, we have to admit, it's pretty impressive.
The Xbox One X version of The Witcher 3 contained a performance mode. This unlocked the standard 30fps cap and allowed for higher framerates on the One X. However, the game never really hit 60fps consistently on any last-gen console.
If you run the Xbox One X version on Series X though, that's another ball game entirely. A lot of the dynamic resolution ranges are massively increased, and the framerate is practically locked to 60fps. Seriously, who needs a next-gen patch?!
Xbox Series X running the Xbox One X version in Performance Mode via backwards compatibility uses a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being approximately 3456x1944 and the lowest resolution found being approximately 2400x1350.
Xbox One X in Performance Mode uses a dynamic resolution with the highest resolution found being approximately 2650x1490 and the lowest resolution found being 1920x1080.
Well, the next-gen patch will no-doubt bring some other improvements so we're still highly anticipating it. However, the current Series X version is seriously impressive, and it's tempting us back for a replay despite the next-gen delay.
