resolution vs game lagging vs heat

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hey guys do you think that playing on lower resolution with your xbox360 such as 640x480 will produce less heat since the console dont have to render more than 640x480 resolution graphics? if so will you get more frame rates on lower resolution i mean that if there are games that have a frame rate drop on 360 like GTA4 (when driving into alot of people) do you think that lowering ur resolution will solve the problem?

no, i have personally stressed my elite on different resolutions and settings. The 360 will overheat at an resolution if you are not giving it room to breathe. Some games will lag on an settings. For example in GTA IV, you will get more frames with different resolutions, EX 720p 60 fps vs 1080p 30fps, but they will both drop to the same min. fps.

Just give your system some room to breathe, dont have it in a small entertainment box, or at lease if you do, take out the cardboard backing

lol, agreed. If Microsoft was smart and might of put small fans on the mobo in it, and maybe put better 80mm fans in the back... comon, 45db running and those fans together push 30 CFM? Got to love the fact that everything you buy is made by the lowest bidder for materials....

they actually do, GTA IV can hit 8 FPS in a very crowded area. Driving fast + blur effects in some games can also hit ~20 FPS

Well, yeah 8fps, you have to try to really lag it (i tried.. GTA IV+75 civs + 35 cars + Rain + driving at 100 mph), but, you usually sit at 25-60 depending on the reso. But, 360 and its heat probs... yeah... your FPS drops due to heat also (YAY FOR WATERCOOLING)

No.

The Xbox will still lag regardless of what resolution you play at, weather it be 480i or 1080i. It's not like a computer where the resolution can have a great impact on performance.
