4K UHD | ARK Survival Evolved – PS4 vs. PS4 Pro 4K Detailed Graphics Mode Graphics Comparison


GameStar PCs | Gaming PCs & Notebooks:
We compare the graphics of ARK Survival Evolved on PS4 Pro in 4K with PS4. The PS4 Pro Version runs with Patch 1.02 (501.2) which enables 1080p native resolution, detailed graphics mode is activated too. The detailed graphics mode improves level of detail as well as resolution on PS4 Pro. On PS4 it can be activated too, there it only improves LOD but reduces performance a lot. It is only recommended to activated it on PS4. In our video we do a short run to show level of detail / draw distance and popping objects. You can also see the low texture filtering on both consoles. We further take a look at the shadows, reflections, vegetation and more.
Wir vergleichen die Grafik von ARK Survival Evolved auf der PS4 Pro in 4K mit der PS4. Beide Versionen laufen mit dem 1.02 (501.2) Update, dass eine native Auflösung von 1080p für die PS4 Pro ermöglicht. Außerdem läuft die PS4 Pro Version im Modus Detail Graphics, der neben der höheren Auflösung auch eine höhere Sichtweite aktiviert. Der Modus kostet einiges an Leistung und lässt sich auch auf der PS4 aktivieren, dort aber nur für die höhere Sichtweite. Dadurch wird die bereits mäßige Performance deutlich reduziert, darum empfehlen wir den Modus nur für die PS4 Pro. Im Video zeigen wir einen kurzen Laufabschnitt, um auf Sichtweite, aufpoppende Objekte und Texturefilter einzugehen. Außderm zeigen wir Texturen, Schatten, Spiegelungen, Wasserqualität und vieles mehr.

  1. actually I see no difference cause my monitor is of only 720p and I'm playing the video in 480p cause in HD my PC lags af…

  2. Been playing ark since release on ps4 and I have recently switched to a pc, well worth doing if your into games like this!!! Its fine like this In the video when hes walking along slowly, get a couple if gigas on the screen and its 10fps time on either ps4.

  3. And they are releasing this game on nintendo switch… I'm gonna buy it but i'll have to make sure if runs good enough

  4. Ps4 pro runs in 4k 30fps or 1080 60fps. Origional has only 1080 60fps. Also pro has high detail mode while origional does not.

    Dont even bring up pc, unless you're a rich jerk who thinks they're better than everyone else you won't get better graphics than this.

    Also nintendo switch version on its way! It's scaled down but still beautiful.

  5. Надо же было такую дичь портироват на ps4. На ps4 pro хорошо выглядит. Но вот на ps4 говнище!!

  6. Glad I got a ps4 pro for free tho I wish I got ark since most the games on playstation are stupid besides star wars battlefront 2 hoping to get it soon or atleast someone buying it for me XD

  7. Not true it depends on what kind of screen your seeing this on and streamed quality snd quality of the system me and my cousin took a pic of cod on our ps4s and they look different but we dont have pro

  8. It isnt ps4 and ps4 pro . Is the same console with detailed graphics activated and desactivated . I dont like it . Is false

  9. Can anyone with a PS4pro and this game verify whether or not it still renders in 4k after the 1.54 patch released 12-16-17??? Mine no longer does.

  10. U should make another video about this because some updates changed the graphics of ark on the ps4 like the water quality for example.

  11. Nice video, how is the framer ate performance on PS4 Pro compared to PS4 in high stress situations like at base with all your tames and your flying around?

  12. You are having a fucking giggle mate. That ugly shit can run on an xbox 3-fucking-60. Absolute joke mate. Did these lazy asswipes even try?????
