How come BF4 for PS4, XB1 and PC run at different resolutions?

#1runromPosted 10/31/2013 12:09:56 PM
XB1 is apparently running at 720p.
PS4 is apparently running at 900p.

It just seems weird given that both the XB1 and PS4 are running AMD graphics so I'm not understanding why the resolution difference is there.

PS4 has more graphics processors so it can put out more graphics.

It's that simple.

Because supposedly the X1 has had serious hardware problems.

It's because of the GDDR5.

XBONE is a piece of literal garbage. I am astounded there are fools falling for Microsofts horrible disaster. Their loss I guess.

Microsoft relied too much on "cloud" computing. They honestly believed that they could invest less on the hardware and all on their servers. Unfortunately, the gamers felt differently. Local machine has to have the power.

Microsoft prioritized Kinect over GPU horsepower


It would be better for both the PC and PS4/XB1 if the console standard were 720p though

It lacks GDDR5 memory! Only the ps4 can manage amazing graphics because of the ram it uses. I mean PC only uses DDR3 and that's less than 5!

Literally not at all what the peasants think, they're excited and amazing by this super innovative technology.

It's amusing
