Depends on how you read the data.

The last option pretty much means "I shouldn't have voted", and if you then break the other 4 options into 2 categories you get "people who can tell a difference" (48%) and "People who can;t tell a difference" (52%)

So its pretty much tied.


Aye Poll of "can you taste the difference between these 2 types of Ham" has an option of "I LOVE CHEESE SANDWICHES"

This should be taken as a valid cientific study that 20% of the population is superhuman with super vision and 80% would be blind watching 4k images.

As long as there are a number of people who can see a difference, there will be a difference. No excuse why it can't do 1080p when the other console is doing it.



Intel core i7 930 OC @ 4.0 ghz

XFX Double dissipation Radeon HD 7950 356 bit 3gb GDDR5 OC @ 1150 MHz core + 1575 x 4 memory

Triple channel DDR 3 12gb RAM 1600 MHz

Damn, I should have gotten into Optometry. I'd make a killing.

lol look at those options hahha... As if you could get different results with options like that.


But dude, its 2x+ da pixels!

Its should be 1000%, "OMG, the difference is crystal clear to me."

That's not correct.

720p on a 1080p capable display is going to be pixellated.  No question about it.  It would look worse.

720p upscaled to 1080p is much more difficult to differentiate.  While the quality of the image depends largely on the upscaler, the image will appear softer.

This is a comparison between DVD upscaled and Blu-Ray.  The former doesn't really look that different, just less sharp.  The latter has clearly defined edges.  Aswell, unfortunately for this movie, very evidently the poor quality of the special effects. 

The issue with the Xbox One's upscaler were resolved with the latest update.  The issues with artifacts, as well as poor gamma correction were both resolved.  In addition, games generally appear to be sharper.

Having said all of that.  I used to watch DVDs upscaled to 1080 on a 64" TV set and honestly had no complaint about the quality of the picture.  Did 1080p content look better.  Yes, but on my 64" TV sitting roughly 10' - 12' away, I didn't see anything that made me think "This looks like crap."  Well, with the one exception.  The DVD box set for the original Star Wars movies had an artifact from the digital processing that had been present since the original Digital Remaster on VHS, which is not present in the Blu-Ray version.  If I mention it, you'll see it if you own any of the early DVD or VHS digital remasters, but there is a red hue to the video which goes in and out at times.  It's extremely light on the DVDs, not as harsh as the VHS tapes, but still present.  Once you see it, its always there.  No matter how big or small the screen size.
