What can Microsoft do to make things easier for devs to hit 1080p?

Reading this article: http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/04/23/lords-of-the-fallen-dev-1080p-tougher-on-xbox-one-than-ps4

Will the DX12 technology be able to help in any way to achieve this goal?

To answer the question, it is claimed by some developers and microsoft that DX12 will help somewhat with getting things to run at 1080p among other things. Other than that, as time goes on they will develop more sophisticated software tools that will help utilize the hardware better.. it will get easier to achieve 1080p in the future, but still not as easily as PS4. Sacrifices will still need to be made in other areas in order to accomplish it, although maybe not as much.

1080p is so easy to hit with that kind of hardware. they should be talking about how they can hit 4k.

This pretty much.

They can lower the image quality, or scale down AI and physics calculations, along with other "tricks" like outputting a native 1080p image but with low-resolution textures. I think we'll be seeing all these things in X1 games, especially multiplatform titles.

I've always wondered what happens to the X1 version of a game if the PS4 version is so technically intense that it can only reach 30fps and 720/900p. Resolution targets aren't going to be the only X1 downgrades, that's for sure.

N64-esque Expansion Pack

kidding.

Obviously there are restrictions with the gpu, but with more efficient dev kits and other fancy upgrades those are the best chance at reaching consistent fps and resolution.

The answer is git gud.
