I played Forza Motorsport 5, 1080p/60FPS CONFIRMED BUT...

It is lacking anti-aliasing... I'll explain why.

Today, I spent a good hour or so playing Forza Motorsport 5 today at my buddy's place who has a white Xbox One (I Made This) Edition. I must say, I was very impressed but there was something I found problematic, the JAGGIES. You'll notice right away during gameplay. The vehicle looks crisp and surreal looking but the buildings, certain objects or the environment altogether looked like a jagfest.

I keep seeing topics around here with screenshots showing Forza has aliasing issues and unfortunately it is true. It runs at 1080p/60FPS but comes with a cost and that is the lack of anti-aliasing.

Now this is where it gets interesting. I decided to go to video settings and change the output resolution to 720p rather than 1080p. When I started up Forza again, the game was running at 720p according to the HDTV display. Oddly enough the game has some form of anti-aliasing masking all the jaggies that was plaguing on 1080p. It was visually smoother but blurrier due to the lower resolution. Still running smoothly at 60FPS.

Yes I'm a graphics whore (also a proclaimed PC elitist) but it didn't bother me much. You won't notice the jaggies because you're constantly playing in motion. If I had to choose between playing 1080p or 720p, absolutely 1080p. Everything looked crystal clear and I mean really sharp looking whereas 720p looked smooth but fuzzy.

Yep I played at the Chicago event and I can agree, the game looks impressive but there looked to be no anti aliasing at all

Retail edition.

Surprising that any Xbox One game would have jaggies like that when Xbox 360 games so commonly used a form of FXAA, which has effectively negligible processing requirements.

Really pathetic trolling attempt

Fooled you? I can post pictures tomorrow if you want me to showing the retail version (case and all) along with my buddy's white Xbox One.

In the case that it's true, which it's becoming increasingly apparent it ISN'T, I wonder if there's actually some sort of downsampling-ish effect going on.
