NVIDIA has shared a new video, showing the PC version of Final Fantasy XV running in 4K and with 60fps. NVIDIA did not reveal the specs of the system that was used to run Final Fantasy XV in 4K, or the settings that were used in order to achieve a 60fps experience in 4K.
According to Hajime Tabata, a single GTX1080Ti won’t be able to offer a 60fps experience in 4K (presumably on Ultra settings). So yeah, while this video is cool, it’s missing some really necessary information.
Now perhaps it’s just me, but this video doesn’t feel like a true 60fps video (especially when the camera is panning). Whether this is due to the motion blur and YouTube’s compression, or due to some interpolation from NVIDIA (for example the game running in 30fps but interpolating the video to look like 60fps in a similar way the company did for Batman: Arkham Knight) remains to be seen.
The PC version of Final Fantasy XV will come with 4K high-resolution textures, support for Dolby Atmos, and will feature some NVIDIA GameWorks effects (such as NVIDIA TurfEffects for realistic grass simulation, NVIDIA Hairworks, NVIDIA Flow, NVIDIA HFTS shadows and NVIDIA VXAO).
Final Fantasy XV is coming to the PC in early 2018.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
