Digital Foundry compares Thief (Xbox win?)

PS4:

1080p
Drops as low as 25 FPS
Trilinear Filtering

X1:

900p
Drops as low as 20 FPS (so much for that reviewers opinion)
Filtering comparable to PC's 16x anisotropic filtering


...

Conclusion:

If you've just bought a next-gen console, this Thief reboot is likely not your best choice for showing off its strengths. Visually, the PS4 should be the front-runner given its 1080p presentation, but through the virtues of effective anti-aliasing, the 900p frame-buffer used on Xbox One holds its own in practice. However, the PS4's weaker texture filtering does factor into the comparison more visibly, with assets appearing blurrier than they should at a distance, and asset pop-in proving slightly more evident. Given that all other settings are a match between next-gen platforms, the Xbox One release - surprisingly - stacks up favourable against a maxed-out PC playthrough.

Performance on PS4 and Xbox One counts as a bigger concern, and neither deserves any sort of recommendation here. Frankly, it feels unpleasant to control Garrett when moving with any haste - not due to frame-rate dips alone, but because of the pacing of these frames, leading to stuttering. We'd encourage buying the well-optimised PC version, as handled by port veterans Nixxes, over either of these next-gen releases as there are far fewer issues in this regard.

All in all, it's hard not to be disappointed on a technical level with Thief. It's often our refrain, but in this case we'd strongly urge opting for the PC release if it's an option. If you're committed to buying for one next-gen platform or another, the superior texture filtering on Xbox One means it carries itself slightly better in the visual stakes - but frame-pacing aside, for the most part all three versions match up very closely indeed.



Hmm, I guess it's up to multiplat owners to decide what they value more. Proves that other early reviewer that slammed the PS4 frame rate as being pure fiction though.

I say it quite frequently recently just because the PS4 is stronger than the XBO doesn't make it strong at all, they are both weak and as MS and Sony went the PC route you simply get a 400$ PC maybe a bit stronger because of optimization.

Sub 30 fps lol. That's not really next gen for either console.

Yeah, I'd always chose a stable 30 FPS over graphics.

On closer inspection, the PS4 seems to have some serious graphical advantages too.

Not sure what to think. It's an inconsistent port at best.
