More Xbox One games will run at a native 1080p resolution as developers come to grips with the console's graphics processing units, Xbox director of development Boyd Multerer has told TotalXbox.
"I fully expect that to happen," Multerer. "The [graphics processing units] are really complicated beasts this time around. The hardware is basically baked, and what comes next is people discovering better software techniques to take advantage of it, especially in the ordering of the data so it flows through all the caches correctly, and I think there's a lot of opportunity there."
Since the launch of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 late last year, it hasn't been unusual for multi-platform games to run natively at 1080p on PlayStation 4, and lesser resolutions on Xbox One. Microsoft has previously said that these differences get "overblown," while Sony has used the disparity to claim that PlayStation 4 is the one console with the performance that developers want.
Multerer said that as developers become more capable of creating engines that harness the full power of the Xbox One, game resolutions for the console will increase. "Once these engines--the engine developers like Frostbite [Battlefield 4] and those guys--they really wrap their heads around this particular GPU architecture, then all of the titles coming out of that studio will take advantage of it and get better," he said.
