Microsoft no longer sees 4K @ 60FPS as a standard for the Xbox Series X

The top giants at Microsoft Games, when they have talked about the Xbox Series X, have always talked about at least 4K @ 60FPS. This promise seemed like a utopia and now it is beginning to be confirmed. Assassin's Creed Valhalla has been the first (and will not be the last) to download and announce 4K @ 30FPS. Now from Microsoft they indicate that 4K @ 60FPS is optional.

Microsoft will not force developers to reach the resolution they have been announcing and promising. For weeks they have been boasting 4K @ 60FPS, something that was technically a complete utopia impossible for Triple A games. resolution also contemplated by Ray Tracing, that seen the impact on NVIDIA graphics, it was unfeasible.

4K @ 60FPS on Xbox Series X will not be an obligation

Developers always have flexibility in how they use power, so a standard @ 60 FPS is not a mandate. Aaron Greenberg, Xbox Chief Marketing Officer

The tweet, curiously, published after the Assassin's Creed Valhalla frame rate was announced. Curiously, something that from this and other media had already been warned on several occasions. It is not ruled out that there are games that reach the Microsoft graphics standard, but it seemed difficult that they were Triple A games.

It is true that the Microsoft console has very powerful hardware developed by AMD for the console. But if we look at the market, AMD is behind NVIDIA by at least one generation. There are also no AMD graphics with hardware support for Ray Tracing and there is no performance data under these conditions.

Note that Assassin's Creed Valhalla limits the framerate to 'improve' the graphic quality. As far as we know, nothing that is especially striking graphically is added to the game and it does not implement Ray Tracing. Come on, there is something strange in all this and in the end, reality is prevailing.
