    4K content


    I was just curious about gaming in 4K on Xbox One and wanted to know the following:

    If I have a 4K compatible game and a 4K TV, but my console doesn’t support upscaling or a native 4K output (e.g. like the original Xbox One), would I still get to play the game in 4K? Or would this still be displayed as 1080p HD?

    I understand most 4K TVs analyse the signal input of video and attempt to convert the output to display 4K, but I wasn’t sure if the same is true for gaming.

    :)

    4K content

    The Xbox One will only output at 1080p

    The Xbox One S features 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for games and video. In addition to supporting 4K video content when used in conjunction with a 4K TV, Xbox One S will also upscale non-4K content
    to display at 4K when paired with a 4K TV. When you set your console resolution to 4K UHD, everything on the console — Home, games, and apps—will display at 4K. 4K content is displayed in its native 4K resolution, and other content (like 1080p content) is
    upscaled to 4K.

    The Xbox One X - 4K content is displayed in its native 4K resolution, and other content (like games encoded for 1080p) is upscaled to 4K

    One S 4k Gaming

    Your information is not correct. Actually when you set the xbox one S console resolution to 4K UHD, everything on the console—Home, games, and apps—will display at 4K. 4K content is displayed in its native 4K resolution, and other content (like 1080p content)
    is upscaled to 4K.

    Does X1 S Upscale Games and Blu-Rays to 4K?

    Hi there,

    let me try to answer your questions.

    1 and 2. Yes it can play 4K Blu-ray discs and Yes when set to 4K output it will upscale the content. See this snippet from the support page: "When you set your console resolution to 4K UHD, everything on the console—Home, games, and apps—will display at
    4K. 4K content is displayed in its native 4K resolution, and other content (like 1080p content) is upscaled to 4K."

    This is the link to the support page with the information:

    Hdr on a 4k tv

    Amazon certainly does have 4K content, I've watched some of it. Netflix has much more 4k content though.

    1440p

    Nope, it will honor your set resolution.

    From https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/console/adjust-display-settings

    Allow 4K

    This setting allows you to pass native 4K content to your display when available in your games and apps.

    You don't have to set your console resolution to 4K to play 4K content. You can set your console to another resolution, such as 1080p, and when a game or app requires 4K (and your TV supports the 4K mode
    it wants), it'll automatically switch to 4K. This is good if you want to play 1080p content in its native resolution, but also take advantage of the 4K resolution when playing 4K content.

    It will only switch when the Game or App "Requires" 4K
