“The Xbox One X upgrade patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt introduces a number of graphical features and tweaks to the game across two visual fidelity options — 4K Mode and Performance Mode.” the developer wrote.
“In 4K Mode the game will run in 4K resolution (or supersampled on a non-4K display) with stable 30fps gameplay, whereas Performance Mode enables dynamic resolution scaling (from 1080p up to 4K) while targeting 60 fps during gameplay. Both modes support HDR.”

As mentioned above, the update has now been analyzed, and it appears that the title basically runs at 55-60fps in Performance Mode with resolutions between 1920×1080 and 2650×1490, although some FPS drops to 40 are encountered in Novigrad.

The update’s Graphics Mode used a dynamic resolution between 2620×1480 and 3840×2160 and runs at a nearly locked 60 frames per second. You can watch both analyses down below. VGTech’s analysis compares The Witcher on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X
