The foregin media Digital Foundry brings a graphics and performance comparison of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the Xbox One comparing its latest patch 1.08 with the old 1.07 (which improved graphics quality, but waned performance) and 1.05.
Patch 1.07 saw a pretty big hit to Xbox One performance compared to the previous 1.05 – a state of affairs that is largely addressed in this latest version.
We can expect that the new patch is evident, regain lost performance as compared with the with the previous update (1.05) graphical improvements in 1.07, so we have a good optimal work summarized in a better graphics quality without diminishing performance negatively.
The Witcher 3 Patch v1.08 Vs 1.07 Vs 1.05 Graphics Comparison
As per the report, the latest patch locks game at 20 FPS on the PS4.
“Essentially, gameplay on Xbox One now appears to rely on a similar double-buffer v-sync set-up to the PS4 game, locking its frame-rate to 20fps during these lulls in performance. This means that the reading on our graph is consistently lower on patch 1.07 as compared to 1.05, where it was free to waver between 20-30fps freely. On a matching route through the bog, frame-rate can be up to 8fps slower on the latest version of the game.” – Digital Foundry
