This wont be an issue on consoles either. They chose a native 4k 30 fps target for a reason. Because they want to offer a 1440p 60 fps mode.Playing it on PC so the framerate is not an issue. I've played Fallout 76 on PC, a horridly unoptimized game at 120 fps. If I can run this at a solid 60 I'm okay until they inevitably patch it. That being said. I really hope they get some of the lighting and AA cleaned up. I want the game to look close to last year's trailer. I'd be satisfied with that.
John mentions how there are several limitations in the visual fidelity. Lack of a realtime Global Illumintation solution, lower quality shadows in the open world, lack of per object motion blur. These are all settings that would require more GPU power which is clearly available to them if they just lower the resolution target to 1440p but they wont because they need the 1440p mode to run at 60 fps at this level of fidelity.
