CGMagazine puts the power of 4K gaming to the test with a side by side comparison of Kingdom Come: Deliverance played on the XBox One X and the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance, released February 23, 2018, presents a historically accurate take on the standard Action RPG. Featured in-depth combat mechanics and a survival-like system, Kingdom Come: Deliverance strives to stray from the typical fantasy driven storyline common to games of this genre.
In an effort to compete in the 4K gaming sphere created by the ever-advancing technology present in the PC gaming world, consoles have strived to improve their own technology to meet the demands of the players. In November of 2016, Sony launched its offering to the 4K race in the form of the PlayStation 4 Pro. With an upgraded CPU and GPU, running a 2.1GHz 8-core Jaguar and 4.2 TFLOP AMD Radeon, respectively, the PlayStation 4 Pro was the first console to run games and video at 4K resolution and used High Dynamic Range (HDR) to scale up media running at 1080p.
Not to be undone, Microsoft launched the XBox One X the following year, offering a more powerful 8 core 2.3GHz AMD based CPU, and beefy 6 TFLOP Scorpio Engine GPU, that placed this powerful machine in the same ranks as some of the top gaming PCs currently available.
