Advanced Micro Devices, abbreviated and most commonly known as AMD, is a veteran American multinational semiconductor company that manufactures computer related technologies and chips. Two most important components i.e. GPU and CPU of the next-gen video game consoles have also basically been developed by AMD, customized specially to fit each console.

Despite being one of the leading central and graphics processing units developer, AMD’s financial conditions over past few years have not been smashing. Other companies such as NVIDIA prove to be a durable competitor to AMD. One thing that makes AMD more notable over other computer chips manufacturers is that it powers PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and certainly this is why the company’s earnings have improved quite well.

At a brighter side, PS4 vs Xbox One debate also results in making respective manufacturers speed up their work in improving their consoles.

Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles are having their fair share of criticism but on the charts, Microsoft’s latest video game console is considered to be led by Sony’s PlayStation 4. The main topic of most ongoing arguments nowadays is ‘resolution-gate’. The fact that PlayStation 4 is optimizing next-gen games according to developers’ commands and Xbox One is causing adversities is widening PS4 vs Xbox One debate.

It is not as serious as I state but still, users of both the consoles pay almost equal sum for their video game entertainment yet PlayStation 4 players enjoy almost all the next-gen games in native 1080p resolution running at 60fps while Xbox One users mostly get upscaled version of most next-gen games, some even locked at 30fps. Even Microsoft’s biggest exclusive title known as Titanfall does not run at native 1080p resolution on Xbox One.

Despite Microsoft’s best efforts, Xbox One is still suffering from ‘Resolution-gate’ issue.

Respawn Developer Says DirectX 12 is not Necessary for Improving Titanfall’s Performance on Xbox One

Titanfall is not the best looking game ever made but it is clear that developer’s claims regarding this title were fairly factual. The hype and anticipation that Titanfall saw before its release was not completely misguided. The game performs very well on Xbox One but it does suffer with some common issues such as frame rate dips and screen tearing.

Titanfall, being a multiplayer game, will receive a lot of new patches and updates for performance improvements with time. Recently, Respawn Entertainment released a new title update for Titanfall introducing private matches and certain bug fixes for the game. According to a Programmer at Respawn Entertainment, Jon Shiring, the latest update does not include any performance fixes for Titanfall. However, performance fixes are in works and will be released soon.

Devs Response to DirectX 12 Doubling Xbox One GPU Speed Claim – New API Will Help but not as Much

Since its release, Microsoft’s Xbox One video game console is making its way through stiff criticism and condemnation. Many factors have contributed to build up this situation including some manufacturer’s mistake. However, Microsoft is trying its best to flip the cards in favor of Xbox One and it looks like DirectX 12 is coming very handy in this situation.

The upcoming DirectX 12 will bring along with it a new version of Direct3D API. Boasting a lower level of hardware abstraction for improved CPU utilization and enhanced multithread scaling, Direct3D 12 will offer reduced GPU overhead and a number of new rendering pipeline features that will help in improving algorithm efficiency. Microsoft claims that Xbox One will equally benefit from all new DirectX 12 features.

It is “Physically Impossible” for Xbox One’s Performance to Align With PlayStation 4′s – Gap is Unlikely to Disappear

The whole “next-gen” hype has been around for a considerable number of years. Back when PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were not revealed, each and every person in the gaming community monitored anything related to next generation of gaming very closely. In this situation, even a slight mistake could have been critical for both Sony and Microsoft. Unfortunately, Microsoft did make some mistakes that left almost a permanent mark on Xbox One’s image.

Keeping aside DRM policies and other software issues, comparatively low Xbox One specifications are causing trouble for Microsoft. “Resolution-gate” is a visible and clear example. A number of next-gen games run better on PlayStation 4 than on Xbox One. Most analysts predict that this state of affairs will continue while some say that Xbox One will soon catch up to PlayStation 4.

Recently, XboxAchievements did an interview with Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Lorne Lanning. Almost a week ago, the site posted an excerpt of that interview under the title “Performance Gap Between Xbox One And PS4 Will Disappear, Says Oddworld Creator”. It is stated in the post that Lanning believes that “disparity between the consoles is already disappearing” and Xbox One will soon be neck to neck with PlayStation 4.
