Whenever a new game comes out, players want to know about its frame rate and resolution, especially on Xbox One X. According to Digital Foundry, the Xbox One version manages to achieve 1080p resolution and the Xbox One X version renders at native 4K. Both systems try to achieve 30 FPS but fail to do so. Despite the difference in resolution, both versions suffer from significant frame rate problems at random points in time.
Analysis by Digital Foundry stated the following. It's clear that the game needs a tremendous amount on work before the average gamer can enjoy it.
PUBG is indeed enhanced for Xbox One X... the improvements are substantial. First of all, native rendering resolution jumps from 1080p up to full 4K. Secondly, texture detail gets a significant upgrade... it's clearly a massive upgrade compared to what's served up for base Xbox users. Additionally, foliage draw distance also gets a big, big boost on Microsoft's 4K console... By and large, performance is also better and when both consoles drop beneath the 30fps threshold, we've noted a delta of between five to 10 frames per second in like-for-like scenes. But again, there's no real consistency in the performance differential and one area we tested did show a small advantage running on the base Xbox One.
Hopefully Bluehole will patch PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds quickly so at least the frame rate doesn't drop into the teens. However, that's not the only problem. The game suffers from texture pop-in and other visual artifacts which need to be addressed. Despite its strong and addictive gameplay, playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a jarring experience due to the frame rate problems.
