The Medium is right here for each the Xbox Collection X and Xbox Collection S consoles in addition to the PC, with some nifty Twin-Actuality gameplay achieved by way of a twin viewport that appears to actually deliver the next-gen Xbox consoles to their knees. However now Digital Foundry has achieved a deep dive on the efficiency of The Medium on the brand new Xbox Collection X/S consoles, test it out:
Bloober Group, the developer behind The Medium, mentioned that the Xbox Series X CPU and GPU power would let developers “go crazy” and I suppose which means probably the most highly effective console on the earth being lowered to its knees and dropping to 900p.
The Medium runs at as much as 4K on the flagship Xbox Collection X and hovers round 1440p, whereas the Xbox Collection S runs it someplace between 1080p and 900p. However if you do the “twin viewport” mode — which the sport is constructed round (and defined within the DF video embedded above) each consoles go proper into Chug Mode down into the 10-20FPS mark.
The twin viewport mode in The Medium sees two video games, in a manner, rendered on the similar time — pulling textures and all kinds from the super-fast SSD inside the next-gen Xbox Collection X/S consoles. But it surely appears all that brute energy is not sufficient as The Medium seems to be alright however nothing wowzers, and that Chug Mode is not good in any respect.
I suppose that is what builders do once they “go loopy” with an excessive amount of horsepower.
