Project CARS will hit 12K on PC, 900p on Xbox One

Project CARS

Racing games look gorgeous. There’s a reason that Xbox One gets shown off with various forms of Forza. However, not all platforms are equal. Increasingly, we see that Xbox One just can’t keep up with the PS4, and neither can come close to PC for performance. Project CARS blows this example out of the water.

According to the updated FAQ, the resolutions and frame rates are:

  • Up to 12K resolution on PC (frame-rate dependent on PC hardware)
  • 1080p, 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4
  • 900p, 60 frames per second on Xbox One

I’m happy to see that steady 60 FPS on both consoles. However, it’s just funny how no one can get the Xbox One to push out better quality. Obviously developers will learn the architecture over time and we’ll see improved performance, but over a year on and it’s become clear that the PS4 is simply the better hardware if you care what your eyeballs perceive.

Then again, I wonder how much of this argument is valid considering we’re throwing 12K into the picture. It’s obviously not real 12K, but rather 3x 4K screens – but does anyone have “12K” capabilities?

Will you be playing Project CARS on 12K or even 4K? Do resolution issues like these actually contribute to your decision making about which new console to buy, or does it all look so much better than PS3/Xbox 360 that you don’t really care?

    I won a Jimms Legendary Jones from a contest. It’s running Titan X 2x SLI, i7 5960K, 16GB 2400mHz of RAM, 2x 240GB SSDs in RAID0 and an i7-5960k.

    I think I’m set for the next decade or so.

      2x titan X?
      found someone that can run 12k res.

      Time to invest in 3x 4k / 1440 monitors

    If Projekt Cars, whoops couldn’t help myself. If Project Cars can be the same, if not better, than Forza, then a lot of Forza fans won’t need an Xbox One anymore. I know a few people who wants to get Xbox One just because of Forza, even though they know the console is shit. Projekt Cars could get those Forza fans on the PS4 and on PC.

    I’m just wondering, what must your budget look like if you can afford 3 4k screens, then 2 Titan Xs and the wonderful PC to match…. I’m sure they targeted some Sheik somewhere in the Arabian Desert with that kind of a proposition…
