So those artefacts seem to be some sort of 4K upscale. If you compare the 1080p capture and the 4K capture, you can see the 1080p capture doesn't feature them (though is obviously sub-native).

1080p:


4K:

Lol. this is reminds me of the brave old days on PC, 90's. When upgrading to a new GPU was a toss up as to whher games would work well or would they look worse, etc, base don what you got and what game supported.

Consoles, you've got a ways to go to make this upgrading hardware thing smooth.

Damn, hopefully more FPS stability too. I guess I should finish the game now.

Older titles getting Pro support warms my mind.
Game doesnt even run at 60fps on pc. why would it run any better on 4k on a console? I said it before and ill keep saying it..4k is just a waste of resources. Ps4 pro should be amazing at better looking titles at 1080p 60fps o even 1440.

What a surprise huh. Not even a resolution bump is easy apparently.

Hopefully cerny said it was no time. Must be true.
I mean, both the Ezio Collection and Darksiders Warmastered support 4K, and I seriously doubt they would have bothered if it wasn't easy to achieve.

Was excited to see thread title, still pretty early in the game after buying it in a recent PSN sale.

Then I read the thread.

4K:
Looks like some kind of botched checkerboarding/TAA implementation (just look at the ghosting on the dress to the left), followed by a nearest-neighbour upscale to 4k.

Ah, what a bummer that it's only some UI. I'd figured Syndicate would never get a Pro patch, but if this is the result, I kinda wish they hadn't bothered.

just compared them both in photoshop like-for-like. and they both have the same pixilated IQ when you blow up the 1080p capture to 4k res. with the 4k version having marginal benefits to clarity in the distance. but yeah, this thing is clearly not rendering above 900p.

poor showing ubi. you may as well not have bothered.

liar liar pants on pixelated fire.

Are some of Newt Scamander's fantastic beasts on the loose again?

Looking at the J Mailings sign, the origin of the artifact seems to be there in the original to, it's just blurred out due to the lower pixel count.

Ouch.
So i guess the patch only enables the extra cpu and gpu power to make the game run smoother.
It runs smoother, right ?

I mean, the patch is simply there so the game aknowledges it's running on a PS4Pro and doesn't run in PS4 vanilla mode, which should give it a significant advantage in terms of performances.

That looks like an LOD transition being cross-dithered in. Not a checkerboarding error.

Did they fix the problem of racing around in a carriage and the gaming stopping for a second to load the road ahead?

i do recall AC being filled with weird kind of transition / dithering effects.

But how do you explain the fact that even Evie, who's standing still and - i presume - at her full LoD at all times, to have these kinds of artifacts.

Similarly, the fountain in the right of the image has them all over the place. I feel like they're connected to transparency effects not scaling up in a clean fashion.
But i really don't know shit, so ... :)

It's like they never even got a PS4 Pro dev kit but seen a box that said 4K support in the new SDK & checked that box to see what happens.

I think I am going to bite on this now then. It seems some people think Unity is better but this game definitely appeals to me.
